        I apply it in the morning everyday before applying makeup. It gives my makeup a base to stick and make it long-lasting. Also, it works wonders for oily skin.

                        This product contains 1.5% Salicylic Acid, so if you're dry in some areas, we'd recommend applying a lightweight moisturizer underneath this product to further help balance your skin.

                    • Q:

                      Is this suitable for mature skin that is normal with only slight oiliness around my nose? I definitely have some pretty decent wrinkles I don't want accentuated. I live in Texas though and the weather just melts my makeup off in the summer plus I do like a full matte coverage so I'm hoping this might work. If not, I guess I can try the other brand for hydrating the skin.

                        If you only experience excess oil in certain areas, you can actually spot treat with the Matte Prime! Apply a small amount just to areas of concern. :-)

                        A:

                        ULTA Matte Prime is oil-free and formulated with 1.5% salicylic acid to keep skin clear of blemishes. It also features mattifying powders to reduce shine for a lasting matte finish.

                        Both Matte Prime and Fabulous Face Foundation Primer (Item #: 2231749) are paraben-free, help to extend the wear of foundation, refine the look of pores and other skin imperfections, ensure smooth and even application of your foundation, and both dry invisibly (no coverage).

                        We hope these extra details help in choosing the one that is best for your skin type and concerns! :-)

                        Those with dry skin can still use Matte Prime, though we definitely recommend first applying a moisturizer. You may like our Hydro Prime, which features a water-based, hydrating formula ideal for dry skin types:
