    This product does a great job of evening out skin tone. I have rosacea and it works great at diminishing the red areas.

                I've already purchased three more of these. This stuff is amazing. Everything goes on so much more smoothly and looks 1000 times better with this stuff. I went a day without using it, and my skin just looked dull and rough... Everyone should at least try this! It worked for me!

                  Comments about ULTA Flawless Primer:

                  I love this primer! I use the Maybelline Dream Mousse in the Ivory shade for my fair skin. Usually when I use this without primer, I'd notice my face looking greasy and oily after just a couple hours of application. I've thought about maybe just switching brands or what type of foundation to use. But, after my first use of his primer, I can now use the foundation I want and the primer makes it possible without having the oily and greasy look happen! My foundation goes on smoothly and my makeup is evenly applied. I also use an ULTA brand Beauty Blender after applying my foundation to go over everything and it's does amazing! I will purchase this again when I need some and recommend it to family & friends!

                    This primer is green at first, but fills your pores, has a little shine and leaves my face silky smooth. After waiting 20 minutes, I applied my foundation and powder. It did not last longer on my oily skin, though. Maybe it will work on dry skin.

                      How does this compare to Smashbox photo finish primer? I am currently using Smashbox and love the product but really hate the price. I have been slowly replacing many of my products with Ulta brand compatibles and have been very pleased with the results and the price. Is this recommended as a compatible substitute for Smashbox primer?

                        A:

                        Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer is oil-free, while ULTA Flawless Primer is not. Please note that although ULTA Flawless Primer is not oil-free, it is non-comedogenic (non-pore clogging) and suitable for all skin types. Both formulas are silicone-based to smooth the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles, and both work wonderfully to extend your foundation's wear.

                        Flawless Prime is ideal for those with skin redness to help even skin tone with its sheer neutralizing green tint. Matte Prime is ideal for those with oily and/or acne-prone skin to reduce shine and keep skin blemish-free. Hydro Prime is ideal for all skin types, especially sensitive and dry skin, to hydrate the skin. Fabulous Face Foundation Primer is ideal for all skin types, especially mature skin, to counteract the effects of skin aging. All formulas create a flawless, smooth canvas for makeup application.
