    I use this product under my make-up, and I love it. It feels like silk when I apply it. In fact, I liked it so much that I bought each of my daughters some for one of their Christmas gifts!!

    Comments about ULTA Flawless Primer:

    This primer is green at first, but fills your pores, has a little shine and leaves my face silky smooth. After waiting 20 minutes, I applied my foundation and powder. It did not last longer on my oily skin, though. Maybe it will work on dry skin.

      I use this everyday after applying moisturizer and before my foundation. It has a green tint so takes the redness out of my face which is a huge plus! I am very happy with the product and it feels very natural and lighweight on my skin.

                      Comments about ULTA Flawless Primer:

                      1) I didn't know it is green before I got it. I thought it's a plus, because I do have some redness on my skin. However, it didn't help to cover even slightly pinkish spots, no visible improvement whatsoever.
                      2) It does feel smooth and silky when you putting it on, but it feels greasy after all. I have an oily skin and it just stays on top of it and adds the shine instead of eliminating it.
                      3) In addition to that it would prevent my foundation from staying put and I use Revlon ColorStay which is normally VERY good at staying put. It feels like this primer served more like a barrier between my skin and foundation so it wouldn't blend and absorb into the skin and just slide on top of this primer.

                      I use this everyday. Some days I don't even need to put foundation on, within 5 minutes you notice how even your skin tone looks. Takes away 90% of shine and replaced it with smooth, healthy looking skin. For days where I don't do much, I put some on and feel like I applied all my face makeup. Increases the longitivtiy of your makeup, and evens skin. It is green and looks gross, but barely even rubbing it in changes it clear and blends into your skin. Awesome product, can't live without it.

                        How does this compare to Smashbox photo finish primer? I am currently using Smashbox and love the product but really hate the price. I have been slowly replacing many of my products with Ulta brand compatibles and have been very pleased with the results and the price. Is this recommended as a compatible substitute for Smashbox primer?

                          A:

                          Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer is oil-free, while ULTA Flawless Primer is not. Please note that although ULTA Flawless Primer is not oil-free, it is non-comedogenic (non-pore clogging) and suitable for all skin types. Both formulas are silicone-based to smooth the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles, and both work wonderfully to extend your foundation's wear.

                          Flawless Prime is ideal for those with skin redness to help even skin tone with its sheer neutralizing green tint. Matte Prime is ideal for those with oily and/or acne-prone skin to reduce shine and keep skin blemish-free. Hydro Prime is ideal for all skin types, especially sensitive and dry skin, to hydrate the skin. Fabulous Face Foundation Primer is ideal for all skin types, especially mature skin, to counteract the effects of skin aging. All formulas create a flawless, smooth canvas for makeup application.
