    Comments about ULTA Hydro Prime:

    I started using Hydro Pirme a few months ago, and now I won't put my makeup on with out it. I love the way it makes my skin look and how easy my makeup goes on. It makes my makeup look flawless!

    Comments about ULTA Hydro Prime:

    Use this product as a base for my foundation on an everyday basis for work. It really has helped elevate my foundation. I am not certain that it is the cause of my breakout but I did not have a breakout issue again until I started using this product under my foundation.

    Product does not work like primer should

        Comments about ULTA Hydro Prime:

        This primer does not allow foundation to glide easily on your skin, the way a primer is supposed to. It does not leave a silky finish; it causes foundation to drag against your skin when applied over it. Smashbox primer is more expensive but at least it works.

        Comments about ULTA Hydro Prime:

        It doesn't even out my skin tone and does not seem to make an improvement in my make-up application. Compared to other brands, I feel that this product was not worth the cost.

                At first it felt completely different than anything I had tried before. I wasnt sure if I would like it. But then I let it dry and put on my makeup and really liked the results. This is not a high coverage product it is light and easy and does NOT cause breakouts.

                • Ineffective For Make-up

                Comments about ULTA Hydro Prime:

                The product is too drying on the skin, thus, the make-up does not apply properly. The other primer I have used is Bare Minerals. It goes on smooth and the make-up just glides on. Ulta's primer makes you seem as though you are pulling your dry skin as you apply. Will not purchase again.

                  Comments about ULTA Hydro Prime:

                  I didn't grow up getting makeup lessons from Mom, so I've just kind of figured things out as need be... generally speaking, I'm not a fan of heavy makeup—on me or on anyone else. Makeup applied with a putty knife should be reserved for special effects artists!

                  That said, I've been happy enough with my drug store products but had a friend who is really in to makeup come over and give me a few lessons to improve my technique. We made a list of things I needed to reproduce the looks on my own, and off I went to Ulta. Primer was number one on the list, so I went looking for something recommended—it's name included something about pores. I couldn't find the product, so when I happened across the Ulta Hydro Prime, I was glad to see the "no silicone" advertisement. My skin isn't "sensitive," but certain products will cause a breakout in no time. I have to specifically avoid anything with SPF! At home, I was surprised that the primer was so watery feeling. A little goes a long way, which is good given the price (again, I'm a drug store kind of gal). I haven't had any breakouts, and my liquid foundation does seem to go on more smoothly (I use a brush). I agree with other comments about needing to touch up one's powder more often given heat and humidity, and I could see how this would also be a problem for anyone with oily skin.
