      My fist time considering and using a primer, very happy with out come! Tiny bit goes a long way, feels so soft and silky during application. It certainly does give an over all smooth textured appearance! Great price also.

        Comments about ULTA Fabulous Face Foundation Primer:

        I bought this after hearing about it on The Beauty Brains podcast. It goes on smoothly, and reminds me of the consistency of the original bare minerals primer (like they said in the podcast). It feels very silicone-y and greasy, and I didn't notice that it made my makeup stay on much longer, although it does work well as a base to even out the skin before applying foundation. I just don't really like the feel. It does get the job done though. If you like the bare minerals primer, you'll probably like this.

            Do not use this is you have oily skin. Go with a setting spray. This made my makeup sweat off twice as fast as usual. I guess that's what you get when you go cheap.

                  This is the Best Primer I'ver ever tried! It goes on so smooth and you can apply your makeup almost immediately after! It doesn't have to soak in and dry like a lot of other budget primers. I love it!

                        I place a tiny drop and smooth this over my face. I wait for it to dry a bit prior to putting the ulta powder foundation on.

                            Yes, it does help to smooth skin texture. For best results, moisturize prior to primer and foundation application. To further help reduce flaky skin, we recommend exfoliating 2-3x weekly using a gentle face scrub or peel.

                            This product is clear and is not meant to increase coverage. It helps to smooth skin texture and diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and pores, as well as to extend the wear of your foundation. To conceal post-acne and sun discoloration, we recommend using a concealer such as ULTA Correcting Concealer, which can be blended under or over your foundation:
