    Comments about ULTA Professional Matte Prime:

    Flawless on some parts of my face, but other parts looked patchy by lunch time. I had the product for about 3 weeks before returning it. I used it for a few days and then experimented with other primers and hopping back to this one just incase it wasn't this primer causing the patchy makeup look. After much trial and error, I realized that I had to forfeit this premier.

                  I love this primer! My skin has recently become very oily. My makeup in the t zone are was not lasting longer than 4 to 5 hours. It was becoming very frustrating. A little of this primer goes a long way and has worked almost perfectly!

                    Especially during summer months, I have a hard time keeping shine at bay, so I was looking for something to help with that. I bought Too Faced's matte primer forever ago and although I was happy with it, I wasn't willing to continue to pay for the little bottle. This is about the same amount of product for about half of the price, and a little goes a long way. It's super lightweight, and it's been super helpful especially at keeping my forehead matte. My T-zone is not perfect using this, but definitely improved. It also seems to help some of my breakouts clear a bit faster. Definitely would purchase again & great for the price!

                      I get very shinny thorough the day despite my using a skin care regimen to prevent that. I got this because I figured why not try something different. Very happy I did, most days I don't have any shine and rarely I get just a little, but very manageable.

                          Matte Prime is clear, so it is not a replacement for BB cream or foundation. It can certainly be used underneath your BB cream to extend its wear plus provide a lasting, smooth matte finish.
