Best matte primer, ever!

By B.Beautiful

Comments about ULTA Professional Matte Prime:

I have super oily skin, and have never found a product to control the shine. Until now, that is. After applying the primer, my skin felt so very silky smooth. This worked better than any product I have tried before now. The first day I used this product ı was doing flowers and makeup for a wedding. I loaded the car in the hot steamy weather; to say that I was overheated was a huge understatement. When I returned to the house my face still had a perfectly matte finish. Needless to say, I absolutely love it.

            I'm fairly new to the primer scene (why did I wait so long??) and this is by far my favorite. I have large pores that I struggle to hide and get shiny throughout the day, especially in my t-zone. This product gives me a nice smooth completion and keeps the shine at bay. Awesome!

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

                      A:

                      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.
