    Comments about ULTA Matte Eye Primer:

    So love this primer, even more than the Urban Decay primer I have. I'm 54 yo and don't need any added shimmer to my wrinkles that others have. This does a great job with the matte base of smoothing out my eye area and giving me a great base to work with for my eye shadow.

      Comments about ULTA Matte Eye Primer:

      This eyeshadow primer can be difficult to use if your inexperienced with makeup. It dries very quickly so you have to work FAST! Once you understand the product, and learn out to use it properly. You will fall in love! Spread the product quickly and evenly, not much product is needed to cover the entire eyelid. I bought this eyeshadow primer during the spring and i still havent made a dent on my tube. This product lasts forever! Worth the money. I would recommend to a friend or family member

                I've been looking for a good, affordable eye primer and this seems to be It! I've got oily eyelids so usually my shadow creases and/or smears off all togethwe in a couple of hours. With this primer my shadow only has a small crease in it at the end of the day.

                  This is the first primer I have purchased and I am well pleased. I have oily skin so my eye shadow creases by lunch time and my mascara has ran as well. The product is easy to apply. I just use my pinky. I don't take it all the way up to my brow so I can blend that area well. I won't have to search for another. This is great and at a great price point. Well done Ulta!

                        A:

                        The nude shade is a translucent formula, so although it won't provide full coverage, it will help to lessen their appearance a bit. We hope this info is helpful!

                        A very small amount (about a pea size for both eyes) is all that is needed. It sets fairly immediately, so you can proceed with eyeshadow application after just a few seconds. :-)
