        Comments about ULTA Hydro Prime:

        The hydro prime does not have the slick feeling of the Matte Prime which I had used before. The hydro Prime absorbed into my skin quickly & did not leave a smooth surface for my make-up. I did like the hydro prime. It wasn't what I want in a primer. I returned it and went back to the Matte Prime.

                This was my first time buying primer so I'm not an expert. I have combination skin with adult acne so I don't take many risks with my skincare routine. However, I love Ulta makeup so my first thought was to try their primer first. So far, I like it. My complaint is that I believe they sold me a product that had been opened and tested. It was not marked as such. Please ask check out ladies to double check products for customers. So far I like it. It has not given me any new breakouts and it doesn't really feel like I'm wearing anything extra on my face.

                    After searching high and low for a perfect primer, ULTA delivered in a major way! A beautiful gel, light and weightless, colorless that applies so evenly to your skin and is never sticky. Just a wee drop will do it and makeup stays true all day no matter the temperature. I love that you get a huge tube and it lasts for so long; feels even better if you keep it in the refrigerator.

                    A must have at our glam studio.

                      Hydro Prime is a clear product that you use over your mositurizer. I use a small amount to just smooth and even out my skin's texture. I then either use a light foundation over it or leave it as is as just an extra layer of protection. Sometimes I just use blusher and my eye and lip products for a flawless look.

                                  Hydro Prime is silicone-free and formulated with a form of hyaluronic acid to provide intense hydration to all skin types. It is especially beneficial to those with dry, dehydrated skin.

                                  Matte Prime (Item #: 2220410) is oil-free and formulated with salicylic acid and mattifying powders to keep oily, blemish-prone skin shine-free and to prevent breakouts and pore congestion. Both primers are paraben-free and noncomedogenic (non-pore clogging), and both perform beautifully under your makeup to extend its wear. We hope this extra info helps! :-)
