      Works Wonderful, Even On Mature Skin!

      Comments about ULTA Fabulous Face Foundation Primer:

      Really love this primer! I am a mature woman and this primer keeps my makeup fresh looking all day long, reduces the look of my pores and doesn't make my makeup look cakey or cracked with my fine lines around the eyes and lips.

      Comments about ULTA Fabulous Face Foundation Primer:

      Believe it or not this is actually my first face primer. After reading all the great reviews I was excited to try it out not to mention the great price deal plus I bought this product when there was an Ulta free gift avail. when a certain total is reached. Now let's get to the point!
      First I washed my face thoroughly early in the morning like usual to start off the day, patted my face dry, then began to apply the face primer. Flakes were starting to form soon after I applied it even though the product felt moisturized, which it was more greasy than anything. It didn't work well with my liquid foundation due to the grease and the dry flakes were annoying.

      Tips:
      Powder may be better to use with it right after applied.
      Once applied, do not apply more or flakes will form.

      I would give a different face primer a try.

            I'm on my 4th day of using this primer-and it's amazing! My skin is unpredictable when it comes to being oily or dry and this product has been perfect for either. It does not flake up when my skin is dry and actually helps my makeup along and does not let my oily skin take over my face. I'll be stocking up during sales for this one! Wonderful product compared to expensive primers of other brands.

              Comments about ULTA Fabulous Face Foundation Primer:

              Upon using Ulta Fabulous Face for the very first time, I was so impressed that this has become my primer of choice. (I ordered it as a backup when my go-to primer Maybelline Instant Age Rewind, was out of stock last year). Quality and value!
              I apply after moisturizer. It does exactly what I need it to do. It helps to hydrate my dry sensitive skin, and transforms my face to a silky smooth canvas. Lines and imperfections are truly less noticeable and makeup lasts all day. LOVE!

                    I have never used a primer before and I'm looking for something to put on before I apply conceler and powder. I normally use MAC pressed powder but I'm open to trying a bare minerals type powder. Would this product be fit my needs? Any suggestions or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

                      You can certainly use this, as it is formulated for all skin types. However, you may be interested in the Flawless Prime (Item #: 2220412), which features a hint of neutralizing green tint to cancel out skin redness:

                      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:
