    Comments about ULTA Professional Matte Prime:

    I have oily, acne-prone skin, so I needed a primer that would keep my full-coverage foundation in place without causing breakouts. This primer does just that, AND it keeps my face matte all day! I didn't even think that was possible. This is an amazing, silky smooth primer that I highly recommend!

      This product did not work compared to other primers. It made my skin oily and made my foundation come off sooner not stay on longer.

          This is the BEST primer that I have used. HANDS DOWN. I sweat from my face which makes my face look greasy ALL the time. But from using this primer you can't even tell. It stays matte all day long. And I don't have to reapply my makeup as often. So I am actually saving on makeup. I highly recommend this one

                I use this product over my moisturizer and under my foundation to get rid of shine. I used to wear powder on top of my foundation, but it gave me a caked and/or flakey feel/look. Using this product under my foundation solves that problem.
                I sometimes use this product without foundation on days I'm in a hurry or not out anywhere special. It's a good product to remove shine.

                          The ULTA Professional Matte Primer is not ophthalmologist tested, so we suggest you proceed with caution when using around the eye area.

                          Matte Prime is clear, so it is not a replacement for BB cream or foundation. It can certainly be used underneath your BB cream to extend its wear plus provide a lasting, smooth matte finish.

                          This product contains 1.5% Salicylic Acid to help mattify oily skin and eliminate and prevent acne. If you're dry in some areas, we'd recommend applying a lightweight moisturizer underneath this product to further help balance your skin.
