    Sometimes less is more and this product fits the bill. I was paying 3 times more for a primer that worked half as well. Saving money and looking good makes me happy.

      I have used all of the expensive primers and I think this is the best for the price. I personally use it to matte my face, I don't wear foundation.

          Comments about ULTA Fabulous Face Foundation Primer:

          Most silicone-based primers don't work well for my skin and often make me look greasy within a few hours. But this one is 100% different. I use a small pea-sized amount for my entire face and really focus on my T-zone and cheeks, rubbing it in well. My foundation applies smoothly, evenly and lasts all day. I'm really happy I took a chance and tried this one out.

                        • Q:

                          Would this be safe for under the eyes? My under eye concealer is actually a foundation (can't find anything else that works), so I figured a foundation primer might be better than an eye primer one, since they are commonly used for eyeshadow.

                            A:

                            Yes, you can apply this to the under eye area, just be careful to avoid the eyelid as well as direct contact with the eye. This product hasn't been tested for use on the eyelid, so we wouldn't suggest using it in place of an eye primer for eyeshadow, but it absolutely works to help prevent creasing of your under eye concealer as well as to help prolong its wear. Enjoy!

                          I love Ulta products and I have found their face primers and setting spraying is just as good if not better than the more, well off the charts expensive make-up. Which of the primers, Ulta brand, are not silica based. It rolls on my skin then balls up my make up and I look like a molting snake. So please direct me to the correct primer.
