Comments about ULTA Demi Matte Foundation:

I've been using this for about 2 years. The last 2 I've had (including my current one), the pumps aren't working properly. I have to remove the pump, dig some product out with a cotton swab and put that on my brush. It's frustrating and inconvenient. I love the product because it's affordable, it has some SPF and it fits my shade perfectly. It will have to be one that I keep at work, as a back-up though, because I can't deal with the pump issue while getting ready at home.

              I use this product everyday. It works in the winter when my skin is super dry, and it also works in the summer and stays on through sweat. It is a great light to medium coverage. It doesn't completely cover all really dark spots, so you still should use a concealer with it. But it's a great light foundation that also has SPF 20 in it!

              Comments about ULTA Demi Matte Foundation:

              was looking for NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint SPF 30 ($45), but my Ulta store didn't have a NARS section. I think this product is a great dupe. It's only SPF 20 with less coverage than NARS, but the gel cream formula feels great, and i just put it on like sunblock (with my fingers) and it blends really easily. The line has warm and cool tones, but not too many shades. I picked up 2 shades to mix together for my color (a warm medium called "chestnut" and warm deep), and Ulta is always buy 1 get 1 50% off anyway so it worked out. 2 shades also gave me some room to play as i tan in the summer, and is kinda like a bit of sheer contouring if i use them that way. i try to seal it in with some setting powder, but it still transfers pretty easily onto everything (clothes, napkins, etc). overall it makes my skin look healthy, natural, and reduces shine. it doesn't cover any imperfections; it just mattifies and evens out tone. also, i really like the pump nozzle attached to the plastic tube. so much better than glass with the same dispensing convenience!

                First and foremost, I love that this foundation is cruelty free! It's hard to find good cruelty free foundations that aren't too expensive and this hit right on the money. It's most medium coverage, but it's pretty buildable. I love that the container is a pump because I never use too much or too little!

                        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!
