      Comments about ULTA Matte Prime:

      I wear this daily and pair it with the liquid halo Smashbox foundation. The pair together stays on when I sweat in the hot summer heat in Texas so that's a nice bonus! I am used to sweating all my makeup off after being outside only a few minutes, but this keeps my face from being super shiny when sweating. Though not totally matte when sweat is involved, still decent. Great for the price.

                    I have extremely oily skin, and I will be honest, it doesn't eliminate all of my oil, but I can say that I do not get as oily throughout the day anymore.

                        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.

                        A:

                        This product is a milky translucent color that applies and dries invisibly. It is suitable for use for all skin tones. It is not color correcting, but it provides a beautiful matte finish.

                        For redness correcting, we recommend ULTA Flawless Prime (Item #: 2220412), which features a green tint to neutralize redness and even skin tone:
