A good dupe for Smashbox

By Maggie

from Missouri

Comments about ULTA Fabulous Face Foundation Primer:

If you're like me and are looking for a photo finish primer dupe, this is a fairly good choice. Smashbox dries a little more powder, but other than that they're pretty similar. But personally, I'm willing to sacrifice a little quality for the cheaper price.

Better than nothing at all, I guess

By ckelley116

from Philadelphia, PA

Comments about ULTA Fabulous Face Foundation Primer:

I'm always looking for my HG primer. This isn't it. It goes on nicely, feels smooth and like it should be adequately prepping my skin. But I'm not sure if my makeup would look any better without it. Also, the claim that it improves longevity is not true. I use Revlon Colorstay liquid foundation for oily/combo skin topped with Ulta's setting spray, and within 3-4 hours, I still need to blot and powder, plus my foundation is starting to break up in the T-zone. So it definitely doesn't help with that, and might even accelerate the breakdown. I most likely won't buy this again, although I'm close enough to the end of the tube that I'll use it till it's gone so it's not a waste.

                      I've been using Smashbox photo finish primer. However I was running low and on a budget so I grabbed this, thanks to a friend's recommendation. It leaves your face feeling soft and silky and the primer helps to kind of blur out some stuff. It reminds a lot of SB's primer in the way it feels. I use UB all nighter setting spray, so I'm not sure if the primer really helps with longtivity or not. But it allows make up to go on smooth and blend easily and that's good enough for me!

                        I've been using Ulta's Flawless Primer and like it. What's the difference between this one and the Flawless Primer? What are the advantages of one vs. the other for different skin types?

                          Though both are formulated for all skin types and help create a flawless canvas for makeup application, the most notable difference between the two is that Flawless Primer (Item #: 2220412) features a neutralizing green tint that helps to diminish the appearance of skin redness. We hope this helps!

                          This primer is formulated for all skin types including oily skin. However, if you are seeking an oil-free formula, you may prefer ULTA Matte Prime (Item #: 2220410), which features an oil-free formula with salicylic acid and mattifying powders to combat excess oil and blemishes and to control shine:
