    Comments about ULTA Hydro Prime:

    I usually categorize myself as having oily skin and always go for matte primers. Since this one is titled "hydro prime" it kind of freaked me out. I had a sample bottle that a friend gave me and when I ran out of my old matte primer I was forced to give this one a try and I am so glad I did because this promer keeps my makeup on like no other! I can workout and sweat like crazy and my makeup stays on so well!!

      Comments about ULTA Hydro Prime:

      I can't say one bad thing about Ultra hydro primer. A little bit goes a long way ! The saying less is more works for this primer. If you use too much, it looks "cakey" with foundation on. One tiny liquid size bead of primer does your whole face. Even if you're tempted to put more on....don't ! Let primer dry then put on foundation. The first few hours you will be amazed ! No touch ups necessary! No touch ups needed even after 6 hours ! And that's only with regular foundation. I definitely recommend this to everyone.

          This works surprisingly well! I have dry skin with a relatively oily t-zone. I've been amazed at how well it keeps my makeup glued down. It feels a bit goopy as you apply, but it's worth the gross feeling for a low-priced, effective primer.

              I haven't like any of ultas primers, this one included. It's just a run of the mill, silicone primer. I like primers that add moisture, and the name implies it provides it- it doesnt. Dry girls get hangover by too faced, it is super moisturizing and a good primer, steer clear of ultas primers...I've used this one, the 12.50 all over (?) and the green color-correcting version. All have been a waste of money and will collect dust in the cabinet. I love uptas concealer stick a lot, so its not all of their makeup, but the primer is a dud.

                          Hydro Prime is silicone-free and formulated with a form of hyaluronic acid to provide intense hydration to all skin types. It is especially beneficial to those with dry, dehydrated skin.

                          Matte Prime (Item #: 2220410) is oil-free and formulated with salicylic acid and mattifying powders to keep oily, blemish-prone skin shine-free and to prevent breakouts and pore congestion. Both primers are paraben-free and noncomedogenic (non-pore clogging), and both perform beautifully under your makeup to extend its wear. We hope this extra info helps! :-)
