                Comments about ULTA Fabulous Face Foundation Primer:

                Tried this once and I will never use it again. It made my pores look even worse. I used the same foundation I always use and while I was blending out my foundation it became very patchy. None of my makeup products sat well on my face, within an hour my face started melting in different areas, which has never happened before. I will be returning as soon as possible.

                          I am 53 yo old with some fine lines and wrinkles. I need a primer that evens everything out, yet has a slightly matte finish. Would this primer be better, or the Ulta Mattifying primer?

                          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:
