Comments about ULTA Demi Matte Foundation:

This stuff is a dupe for double wear! I love it! The only issue I noticed is that is does not stay on all day which I have yet to find a foundation that does stay on all day (and I don't use primer) Anyway it is super thick and easily blendable and they have a huge range of colors. I am a medium skin tone with yellow AND red undertones and mocha matched me perfect! Honey was too yellow. I looked flawless today def buying again!

    Comments about ULTA Demi Matte Foundation:

    After seeing so many good reviews on this I decided to try it and I'm so glad I did. I have combination skin and had the same problems over and over with high-end foundations. I wanted to find a foundation that would at least have the same coverage but with a cheaper price and I have to say I feel it's better than any high-end foundation I have bought. It smooths on so easily and my favorite way to apply is with a dry beauty sponge. After setting with powder I go back and use a primer spray and then use the blender and lightly press it on my face so I still get the semi dewy look without it looking too matte or too oily. It stays on all day and I work 8+ hours and live in Texas. The price is awesome and I love stocking up when Ulta has their sales. I highly recommend!

      Comments about ULTA Demi Matte Foundation:

      I LOVE this foundation! I have tried drugstore brands and expensive brands, and for me, this is great. My skin looks healthy, the color (honey) is perfect. Thanks to the associate who helped me pick it out. I love that I can kinda still see my freckles and it's not matte, yet it's not shiny, it's perfect in my opinion. It doesn't make me break out. I have worn it for 12 hours straight and it stays on all day, even in Houston 110 degree heat. Love it. Would definitely buy again. And I just found out that it has some good ingredients in it. Love it even more. BTW I apply it with a beauty blender.

      Comments about ULTA Demi Matte Foundation:

      I'm not one for foundations, I don't usually like the way they look on my skin (usually they're too dark), but this one looked great. It's a natural finish- not too dewy or matte- and it doesn't skin into my smile lines. However, I'm at the height of my tan right now, I know I'm not getting any tanner at this point and I got the lightest shade. This definitely isn't the right product for super super fair people.

          Comments about ULTA Demi Matte Foundation:

          I don't understand how Ulta made these foundation with inappropriate color names. Most brands have a "Mocha" color and it's for deep skin toned women but not Ulta. The color Mocha is for a fair skinned person. You lose customers with this kind of tomfoolery.

          Comments about ULTA Demi Matte Foundation:

          I received a voucher for a free full size of this makeup. I was even skeptical and didn't know if I wanted to even use it. But I did when I placed an order for my normal makeup and said "What the heck".
          WOW. I am a brand buyer. I have never had a problem with paying for good makeup. BUT THIS is amazing. I will be honest most things by Ulta I am not too impressed with, yes they always do well, and they don't break my skin out, but their makeup to me isn't always up to par.
          I put a small dot on my wrist to just see how it felt, and I was amazed with the silky texture and matte finish and the full coverage was almost too good to be true. So I went to the bathroom, took off my makeup from the day and started over using the Demi Matte Foundation. I was stunned! It looked so clean and natural on my face. I am very fair, and sometimes even the light from most brands leave me looking like I have on a ton of makeup. But not this. I didn't even put on blush or bronzer I just walked out of the bathroom and my husband said, "See I don't know why you wear so much makeup you look so good with your natural face." I just laughed I didn't tell him my new secret. I have used this for two days now and all my girlfriends at work commented how light and natural my face looks.
          I just found my new favorite foundation. Thank you ULTA!!!!

                  A:

                  Demi Matte Foundation features a long wearing formula. If preventing transfer is a concern, we suggest setting your foundation using a finishing powder such as ULTA Pressed Setting Powder (Item #: 2295276), or using a setting spray such as ULTA Makeup Setting Spray (Item #: 2271525). We hope this info helps!
