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.

It takes some work

By Lexanna

from Virginia

Comments about ULTA Double Duty Foundation:

After I got this home and used it. I hated it because it is thick sooooo thick. I didn't think it was that thick in the store. It does show pores so I use japonesque velvet primer or the knock off makeup perfecting base L'Oréal primer. I have oily t zone and dry everywhere else. BUT I can't use this alone. I mix it with my milani 2 in 1 and some nyx lavender cc cream since milani is too yellow. I put it on with the real techniques expert face brush and then I go over and dab with a wet beauty blender. its the only thing I've found to work for me with this foundation... and it looks good in photos

    Comments about ULTA Double Duty Foundation:

    When I first used this foundation, I thought it was very thick. But it spreads, covers and blends like a dream. This is the best foundation I have used after years of L'oreal or Maybelline. It provides great coverage for mild rosacea. It blends well and gives a great matte canvas. I have found a wonderful staple for my makeup bag.

        Comments about ULTA Double Duty Foundation:

        My first attempt at using this product, I applied it to my face and it would not blend. I tried to born with my fingers because no other applicator could move the foundation around. The result I received after blending with my fingers was heavy, cakey, and blotchy.

            Comments about ULTA Double Duty Foundation:

            I thought since this was supposed to be a primer and foundation in one, it would be easy to use and go on evenly. This however came nowhere near the expectation.
            The only way I can use it at all is by mixing it with an additional primer and then hoping for the best.
            Basically for me, its pretty much useless unless I have a bad rosacia breakout, then it cover the redness, but still thick, dry and difficult to blend.

                            This foundation is formulated with a form of hyaluronic acid, which is a very hydrating ingredient, as well as with sweet almond extract to sooth and nourish sensitive skin. For those with dry skin, we recommend moisturizing and exfoliating (2X weekly for sensitive skin) to ensure smooth application.

                            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!

                          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!
