        I have used the bare minerals primer and it's super great!! Lasted all day and the next day even while it's hot.. If ur on a budget this works just as well for the price.. It doesn't last as long as I would like but for about 5 hours it does the job

            I can't tell the difference in this vs. the Smashbox photo primer, and you get a lot more of it for the $$. Makes foundation goes on smooth and don't want to put makeup on without using this first.

                I've been using Ulta's Flawless Primer and like it. What's the difference between this one and the Flawless Primer? What are the advantages of one vs. the other for different skin types?

                  A:

                  Though both are formulated for all skin types and help create a flawless canvas for makeup application, the most notable difference between the two is that Flawless Primer (Item #: 2220412) features a neutralizing green tint that helps to diminish the appearance of skin redness. We hope this helps!

                  This primer is formulated for all skin types including oily skin. However, if you are seeking an oil-free formula, you may prefer ULTA Matte Prime (Item #: 2220410), which features an oil-free formula with salicylic acid and mattifying powders to combat excess oil and blemishes and to control shine:
