      I love the Ulta Matte primer- hate this hydro- I know it's suppose to be more like water hence the name but it does nothing to help prime skin for make up application.

      I like the way it felt on my skin, it wasn't thick or sticky. It worked alright, it could have provided a smoother surface. Other primers I have used worked better for fine lines

          I have very dry skin and I've used so many things under my makeup to help but everything I've used didn't help and so when I put my makeup on then my skin woul flake. When I first used this it felt a little weird to put on but once I got all my makeup on I absolutely loved this product

              I was having a hard time finding a product that keeps my skin from drying as the day progresses. This does the trick. I use it after moisturizing and before applying foundation and my skin stays dewy all day instead of drying and crumbling my makeup.

                      I bought this primer because they were out of my normal primer. It felt like I was just putting water on my face. It made the foundation very difficult to apply (almost sticky) and I had to use a lot more foundation than I normally use. I will NOT purchase this product again.

                          A:

                          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! :-)

                          Hydro Prime is ideal for all skin types including dry skin! It is formulated with a form of hyaluronic acid to provide intense hydration. For best results on dry skin, exfoliate (twice to three times weekly) and moisturize prior to primer application.
