    Comments about ULTA Matte Eye Primer:

    I was looking for a primer that wouldn't break the bank and I found this one by Ulta. I bought it in Nude Matte as I don't see the need to buy a primer in a color, since I'd be applying shadows on my eyes. I feel this 1 is good, not great...but gets the job done. Some primers are like oil paint and you can't wash them off easily; not so w/this one. So for now, this one is good enough.

        Comments about ULTA Matte Eye Primer:

        This product is AMAZING. With products like this at this price point it is beyond me why people would pay more for an eye shadow primer. I just started using eyeshadow primers in the past year, but i've been through quite a few. I've tried high end (yes, even Urban Decay) and low end (yes, even Milani) and nothing comes close to this primer. This is so easy to use and creates the perfect base layer for your shadows. Even less than stellar cheap shadows stay forever with this. This creates a more vibrant and long-lasting look.

                    I had really high hopes for this product and was super happy with the appearance when I first applied it. I didn't put eye shadow on top, I just wanted to control my oily eyelids. However within a couple hours, I looked in the mirror and saw that all of the primer had creased in the middle of my eyelids. I decided to give it the benefit of the doubt and tried again a few days later - with the same outcome. Unfortunately had to return this product because it just didn't work for me.

                            Hi there. This is not the exact same formula, but is very similar. This has a nude tint with a matte finish, whereas the Tinted Eye Primers have a tint of color with a pearl finish.

                            The nude shade is a translucent formula, so although it won't provide full coverage, it will help to lessen their appearance a bit. We hope this info is helpful!

                            A very small amount (about a pea size for both eyes) is all that is needed. It sets fairly immediately, so you can proceed with eyeshadow application after just a few seconds. :-)
