One of my favorite stores in the whole entire world is ULTA. One of the fantastic promotions that Ulta offers is the 21 Days of Beauty event, where every single day there is a new special beauty offer. You get a full three-weeks straight of amazing beauty bargains and deals on all your favorite brands, even the high end ones. Today is Day 12 and the item of the day is Too Faced’s Primed & Poreless Face Primer. It just so happens that I use this primer ALL the time and I have been a huge fan of it for a long time. I have oily skin with visible pores and this primer just instantly smooths out my skin and keeps it looking fresh and matte all day long.
Ulta is offering this primer for 50% off today, which means it is only $15.00 USD. That is a major steal considering you only need to use a pea-sized amount each time you use it. Check out my full review and before/after inside!

I’ve been using this primer for a long time now, and it’s hands down a favorite of mine. It does exactly what it says it will do. Vitamins A & C, Mulberry extract and a powerful dose of Retinol work together to smooth out your pores and make them look non-existent. I have oily skin with pores that are quite noticeable around my cheeks and nose. Wait until you see the magic that is Too Faced Primed & Poreless Face Primer.
The product itself is a beige shade, but it goes on colorless. You can use anywhere from a dime-sized amount to a nickel-sized amount. If I have a special event or date, I’ll use more to really make sure my skin is perfected, but for every day use, a dime-sized amount seems to do the trick. I use clean fingers to blend it into my skin, focusing mostly on my cheeks, my nose, and my forehead area.
You can see in my BEFORE picture that I have visible pores, some leftover breakout marks, and…more PORES! Ugh. It is one thing I was always self-conscious about from a young age. Where were you during my teenage years Too Faced?!
After spreading the primer onto my face, I apply one pump of foundation onto my skin. You will INSTANTLY notice a difference when using this primer. It makes your skin look brighter and it makes your skin feel super smooth and velvety-soft. Your foundation will glide over your skin like it never has before and your pores are erased. Check out my AFTER:
Boom. Goodbye yucky noticeable pores! My skin looks airbrushed after I use this primer with my foundation. It keeps my makeup looking matte all day long and it also brightens my skin. Check out the side-by-side comparison:
My skin went from being red, dull, and with noticeable pores to looking flat out airbrushed and perfect. It’s all thanks to Too Faced Primed & Poreless Face Primer. I swear by this primer. It works some major miracles.
The best part? It’s ULTA’s 21 Days of Beauty steal today! It’s usually priced at $30.00 USD, but today they have it for 50% off. There is a limit of 2 on the quantity you can buy, but I’d definitely get my hands on this if I were you. You will not be disappointed. You can find these daily beauty steals in Ulta stores nationwide and also online at Ulta’s website.
ULTA’s 21 Days of Beauty runs through September 28th, 2013, and I’ll be bringing you all the latest product reviews, swatches and coverage on this event! Stay tuned for more great beauty bargains. Who doesn’t love a steal?!
