Put a little liquid foundation onto the back of your hand and with your fingertip, dab the foundation over your face: two dabs on your forehead, two on the cheeks, one on your nose, and one on your chin. Covering the face this way helps ensure a more even and spreadable coverage. Blend the foundation into the skin with your fingers or using a foundation brush.

    Comments about ULTA Double Duty Foundation:

    I would strongly recommend choosing a lighter shade than what you would normally buy. I'm typically a lighter gold/beige, but I went with Light Ivory and I'm so glad I did. It doesn't really glide on smoothly, but it gets the job done once it's on!

            I seen a mixture of good and bad reviews, but being a fan of the Ulta cosmetic line, I decided to try it. It's a let down. At the end of the day my face was a heavily covered, slick mess. Setting powder didn't help to change the feel of it.

            I purchased the product after reading several reviews, looking for something long lasting that wouldn't come off on my mask during the day, I wear a mask that covers my nose and mouth at work. Needless to say, I was pleased with the results. I will purchase again.

              • Q:

                What's the difference between a BB cream and a foundation?
                Asked on 1/22/2017 by Confused from Pinewood, sc

                • Staff Expert

                  A:

                  The most noticeable difference is that this foundation provides medium to full coverage, while most BB creams typically provide sheer-to-medium coverage. This product combines the benefits of primer and foundation, while many BB creams combine the benefits of a tinted moisturizer and primer. Many use BB cream underneath this product for hydration plus a bit of added coverage. We hope this helps!

              • Q:

                This foundation has primer in it, but I'm wondering if it's a good replacement? Or does it still work best when applying primer on your face before this foundation?? (Especially to make sure that your eyeshadow is pigmented).

                I'm wanting to buy "two birds with one stone" and not have to buy a primer if I don't have to, but I want good results. Thank you in advance!

                  Because of its built-in priming benefits, it's a wonderful multi-purpose product for you! The formula is very long wearing.

                Hello,

                I would like to try this foundation and the Ulta color corrector stick. I'm having a hard time choosing a color. I like the light medium honey shade of Tarte's Amazonian Clay foundation. What color do you think is comparable in the Ulta products?

                Thank you!
