    This is my first time trying a primer (I know i started late :) ) I regret not starting earlier, this makes my makeup last the whole day and the skin is so soft after you apply it.

                    I bought this because I wanted the free gift that came with this but I also wanted to try out a cheaper primer than a high end one for everyday. All in all I think this was fine. It did make my face feel really soft and smooth but I didn't really notice any difference to my liquid foundation. I'm not even sure if it actually made it last longer either. It did not help or do anything with my pores.

                    I would probably not repurchase because I was not impressed but also because there are so many different affordable primers out there that I do want to try. This is a fine option if you don't want something too expensive for everyday.

                    Comments about ULTA Fabulous Face Foundation Primer:

                    This is an updated review, and it's a sad one. I LOVE this primer at first because it feels sooooo silky on the skin and I could instantly see my skin looking smoother and healthier after I used it, but after some trial and error when my foundation started being difficult to apply, patchy and cakey I figured out that this primer was the culprit. I use Kat Von D's Lock-it Foundation and this made it almost impossible to apply a thin layer with my beauty blender, made it 100 times more noticeable that I was wearing foundation and good gosh if I applied powder over my foundation it became a chalky, dry, cakey mess. I really wanted to love this primer because it felt so good on my skin that priming became my favorite part of my makeup routine, but alas, I had to stop using it and now my makeup is back to being flawless. I may try the color correcting or mattifying primer to see if those have the same flaws, but I don't have my hopes up after this. Maybe it's my skin type, the foundation/powder that I use, I don't know, but I'd still recommend this to others because it might work wonders for them.

                          You can certainly use this, as it is formulated for all skin types. However, you may be interested in the Flawless Prime (Item #: 2220412), which features a hint of neutralizing green tint to cancel out skin redness:
