    Comments about ULTA Fabulous Face Foundation Primer:

    I'm a 49-year-old blonde white female. I like a clear silicone primer that gives me a smooth base for foundation and the rest of my makeup. I have tried multiple brands including Smashbox, which is what I had right before getting this. I apply my primer with a foundation brush identical to the one I use for my foundation. I like this primer because it is a clear silicone that I can spread easily and evenly with my brush, and it gives me a smooth, velvety-feeling base for everything else. It is slightly more liquid than the Smashbox, and ii had to adjust to not using too much, but that is a plus because it should last longer. Of course the lower price is great too. As far as performance, I can't tell any difference between the two. I will likely stay with this product. I haven't been disappointed in any Ulta product I have tried.

              I had been using Smashboxes photo finish primer and was happy with it. When I went to the Ulta store to purchase more, the makeup artist recommended I try the Ulta version for a fraction of the cost. I'm always up for a good deal so agreed! I'm glad I did. I can't tell a difference and I am more than happy to pay a third of the price! WTG Ulta, this is good stuff!

                  I have used a couple other primers and this compared to them.. For the price it works great.. But it doesn't last very long so about 6-7 pm I'm have to fix my make up a little.. I can tell the difference when I don't use it almost immediately..

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: http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod2570085

                                Fabulous Face Foundation Primer should not be mixed together with other products; rather, it should be layered over your moisturizer and under your foundation for best results.

                                Because this primer is clear and invisible, we don't typically recommend wearing it alone. Its benefits can be seen when worn underneath your foundation (powder, cream or liquid) - it works to create a smooth surface by minimizing the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles. Plus, it helps to extend the wear of your foundation!

                                Yes, this product is formulated for all skin types. Smooth a pea-size amount onto bare or moisturized skin prior to foundation application to reduce the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles and to extend your makeup's wear.

                                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:
