      Received a sample in a free gift bag. Liked it so much I returned the Benefit primer I purchased for this ULTA primer that was half the price and double the size!

          Comments about ULTA Matte Face Primer:

          I love the smooth texture of this primer and it defientley is a matte formula. This personally did not work for me, I found that it started to peel on my forehead and smile lines. I do plan on using this because it is a good product but maybe I'll just put it on my cheeks where I tend to get shiny in the summer.

            I received this product in a sample pack. I didn't have high hopes for this product, because it felt slippery when I first applied it, but I let it sit on my skin for 5-10 minutes then applied my foundation. I was so pleasantly surprised with the result! It feels lightweight, blurs my pores, and best of all keeps me matte all day! I love this product and will definitely purchase a full sized bottle when my sample runs out.

            • Q:

              I have a sample size primer that's called Mattifying Face Primer and reads "controls shine and blurrs pores". Is the packaging different? This is the closest I find to my sample product. Its not called Pro Matte Prime as it has in the description on how it was formerly called.

                For best results, prior to use, apply a moisturizer to your dry areas, then apply Matte Prime. Enjoy!

              Is this product ideal for sensitive skin?

                A:

                This product is fragrance-free and formulated for all skin types. It is oil-free, paraben-free, and noncomedogenic (non-pore clogging).

                It is formulated with an active ingredient: salicylic acid. If you are sensitive to salicylic acid, we would not recommend this product for you. A better option for those who are sensitive to salicylic acid would be the Color Correcting Face Primer, which is also paraben-free, fragrance-free and noncomedogenic and formulated without salicylic acid.

                Color Correcting Face Primer (previously known as Flawless Prime) features a neutralizing green tint that helps to cancel out redness, ideal for sensitive skin that is prone to redness:
