        Comments about ULTA Matte Eye Primer:

        Here are some pros:
        1. It provides an off white creamy color base, so you can use this to make your eyeshadow pop more.
        2. I have oily eyes, so this dries down into truly a MATTE texture and keeps my eyeshadow from disrupting.
        3. Long Lasting
        4. You don't have to set it with a powder.

        Here are some cons:
        1. The same as the pro.It does have an off white ashy base. Its good for making your eyeshadow a lot more visible, but this means for someone like me who is of a deeper tone or medium tone, you'll have to have accommodate to assure the white base is not showing. For example, usually I add my primers or concealers everywhere below the brow and above the lashes, then set it with a powder and continue on to eyeshadow. With this, I have to make sure to place the eye primer where I know the eyeshadow will cover. I can't place it on my entire eye area, thus be careful where you put it because your eyeshadow has to hit those points or the white will show and look ridiculous. It'd be easier if its closest to your skin tone but unfortunately it doesn't have that variety. All in all, its white/beige and I'm dark skin so I change up my routine. This con is a preference.
        2. Its a little bit of a mess. You have to control the way you apply it, because its a very soft texture that spreads out quickly.

        I am recommending it. I don't mind the cons so much, because one is a personal preference some may share or some may not of how they apply eye primers. The second one is easily solved by using a generous amount first and then build up if needed. I love to wear it when I'm going for a vibrant look or just regularly because my creases are oily.

              I have hooded eyes, if I don't use a good eye primer my eyeshadow & eyeliner crease and transfer to the top of my eye. I've tried numerous less expensive eye primers that did not cut it. My typical go to is Urban Decay Primer Potion until I decided to give the Ulta brand a try. It works just as well and so much cheaper! I want to try the tinted eye primers next!

                    This is probably one of the best eyeshadow primers I have ever tired. I tend to get oily eye lids throughout the day. This primer keeps my eye lids matte and keeps my eyeshadow from creasing as well. This primer also made my eyeshadow last all day and I had it on for about 12 hours. It held on pretty well, whereas other eyeshadow primers I've had would not keep my eyeshadow from creasing and my eyeshadow would be almost gone by the 5 to 6 hour mark. Also other eyeshadow primers would just make my eyelids even more oily than before. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has oily eye lids like I do.

                        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. :-)

                        ULTA Eye Primer is designed to be applied under eye shadow to prolong wear and eliminate creasing. It does not feature any color correcting claims. Two shades are available: Champagne and Nude Matte. Both shades are a translucent flesh color that does not effect color of your eye shadow. Champagne adds a subtle luminescent finish.
