    I put this on before applying my cover up. The matte makes my cover up look smooth and makes it easier to apply.

      Comments about ULTA Matte Prime:

      Until I went to Ulta and Brecka and Larissa educated me about primer I never used it. I got a sample when my Ulta store opened and I haven't stopped using it since. I am in my early fifties and need a little extra something to help my makeup look fresh all day and this does the trick. The price is great as well!

        Comments about ULTA Matte Prime:

        This stuff is awesome. If you've ever looked at primers they run for pretty big bucks considering the amount of product you get in the tiny bottle. I purchased this on a day when ulta was running a 2 for 1 sale or something like that. So I took a chance. Used it and I loved it! I also got the hydra primer too but this one is my favorite.

            Comments about ULTA Matte Prime:

            Love this stuff. I've never used primer before I got this stuff so I'm really not sure how it compares to others. It hasn't let me down though. It makes my skin feel like porcelain for a smooth surface for my makeup. It also reduces the visibility of my pores and hasn't made me breakout at all. My skin used to get oily by the middle of the day, making my makeup look patchy and gross. :/ But it doesn't do any of that with this stuff! Just to be sure, I spray some matte setting spray on top of my makeup to lock it in. My makeup stays in place all day!

                    I apply this primer under my foundation, but on top of Indeed Nanoblur. I have oily skin, and this primer keeps me matte throughout an 8 hour work shift. I used it with a few different foundations and it works well with all of them (from Covergirl to Kat Von D). I LOVE it!

                          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.

                          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:
