Nope. This primer leaves me greasy and does nothing to minimize any pores or fine lines that I have. The product just sit on my face

          I watched this on my hand in store and thought it would be a wonderful Smashbox duplicate. Had to order online and was so disappointed once on my face. Did not smooth out skin and did no fill pores, left a weird feeling, don't believe it halpedd my makeup last longer - it went back to the store and bought one of the holiday smash box primer boxes.

              Not really a fan. I don't like the feel of this primer, it is greasy feeling and doesn't seem to cover well. Great value but this would not be a buy-again option for me.

                      A:

                      This primer features a milky consistency with no tint. It works wonderfully for absolutely all complexions!

                      Because this primer is untinted and invisible, we don't typically recommend wearing it alone. Its benefits can be seen when worn underneath your foundation (powder, cream or liquid) - it works to create a smooth surface by minimizing the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles. Plus, it helps to extend the wear of your foundation!

                  • 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!

                  • Q:

                    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. I am older, sun damage, fine lines; with redness and dark spots that need hidden
