      Comments about ULTA Fabulous Face Foundation Primer:

      This is the first time I have tried a foundation primer. I was looking for something that would help make my makeup last longer, look less "caked on", and wouldn't break the bank. So far, I am very pleased with this primer. I have noticed my makeup has stayed on much longer than without it. When you initially apply it, it does feel a little greasy, however, once it dries the greasy feeling goes away and I don't even notice it on my face. I don't tend to have problems with acne or having oily skin so the greasiness might be a problem for those who do. Overall though, it is definitely worth a try if you are looking for a new primer.

        I really like this primer! It has a nice cream to powder finish. Only issue is you need to use quite a bit to cover your whole face. Makes my makeup last longer and apply smoother.

                          It could be that you are applying too much. Try applying just a pea size amount to the entire face - this should help correct the issue! :-)

                      • Q:

                        I am 55 yrs old and have been using Bare Minerals for 3 years now. I need to find a less expensive primer, I was using Bareminerals Prime time foundation primer, but it is costly now with my senior budget. This worked well for me, I have combination skin and redness and no wrinkles yet, oh and I have very very sensitive skin. I tried a new night time moisturizer and my skin broke out terribly to it. My question: what do you suggest for primer and moisturizer too?

                          This product is well-suited for those with sensitive skin. It features a fragrance-free formula and contains soothing green tea extract. If you are seeking a moisturizer to pair with this primer, the Radiant Skin Daily Face Moisturizer is an excellent choice (formulated for all skin types):
