    Comments about ULTA Fabulous Face Foundation Primer:

    as someone entering her 50's I needed a primer to even out my skin tone. I have tried others in the past and decided to try Ulta's brand. It works great and gives me the even skin tone I was hoping for at a fraction of the cost of some others!

      Comments about ULTA Fabulous Face Foundation Primer:

      Love this primer. It keeps my liquid makeup from settling in creases -- let's call them 'laugh lines.' But it also keeps my powder makeup fresh throughout the day.

      I use it over my moisturizer and my makeup stayed on even after I took a nap. I will definitely buy this again.

          I was worried when I first opened this product because it was clear (my last and first primer was not so it was a shock). This product is so much better then last - it last longer and doesn't make my skin feel dry.

              My fist time considering and using a primer, very happy with out come! Tiny bit goes a long way, feels so soft and silky during application. It certainly does give an over all smooth textured appearance! Great price also.

                Comments about ULTA Fabulous Face Foundation Primer:

                I bought this after hearing about it on The Beauty Brains podcast. It goes on smoothly, and reminds me of the consistency of the original bare minerals primer (like they said in the podcast). It feels very silicone-y and greasy, and I didn't notice that it made my makeup stay on much longer, although it does work well as a base to even out the skin before applying foundation. I just don't really like the feel. It does get the job done though. If you like the bare minerals primer, you'll probably like this.

                    Do not use this is you have oily skin. Go with a setting spray. This made my makeup sweat off twice as fast as usual. I guess that's what you get when you go cheap.

                              This product is clear and is not meant to increase coverage. It helps to smooth skin texture and diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and pores, as well as to extend the wear of your foundation. To conceal post-acne and sun discoloration, we recommend using a concealer such as ULTA Correcting Concealer, which can be blended under or over your foundation:
