    Comments about ULTA Fabulous Face Foundation Primer:

    I've been using this primer for about a year now and I love it! I use it almost every day and notice a significant difference in my makeup on the days I forget or don't have it with me. In other words, when I don't use it, my makeup doesn't last all day like it does when I do use it. I typically apply it after my moisturizer and before my foundation and that's been my regimine for the last year. I highly recommend to anyone to wants a good primer but doesn't want to drop $20-$30 on the expensive brands.

        I keep getting samples of another well known expensive brand, which pales in comparison to this primer. The Ulta primer dries quickly, and makes my makeup go on smooth. Definitely a keeper.

                        • 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.
