Click here to find your perfect shade!
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.

    I really like this foundation. I have tried everything under the sun (MAC, tarte, Lancôme, etc.) and this covers and lasts just as well as the super expensive brands.

      • Poor Coverage

      • Full Coverage

      Comments about ULTA Double Duty Foundation:

      I would say the coverage is OK, but this foundation + is sooooo thick that it instantly gave me cake face and it doesn't blend very easily. and the primer in it did noting to smooth my skin or fill in my pores, so that is disappointing. If you have young smooth skin with no visibile pores, this may be great, but I have vey dry hormonal skin with enlarged pores and this just doesn't cut it. Returning immediately.

      The only time I'd use this is if its the only foundation available and if it was not a a special occasion. I'd rather cover my face in concealer.

            This is the worst product I have ever bought! It was like trying to smoothe out the old paste we used in kindergarten. It began to pill and leave bare patches and glumps all over as I applied it. Very disappointing, and I'll be returning it if I can without my receipt.

              I have 2 ulta foundations, both in the shade nude beige and this foundation applied as a lighter shade than the other. Very nice, natural finish. I did have some issues with it breaking down, specifically on my nose. If I can figure out how to fix this I would love this during the winter when my skin is a lighter shade.

                I have tried and used many foundations and this has given me the most Matt/ close to skin tone look.
                Haven't had breakouts
                Only wish it was easier to apply
                I use my finger strips for even coverage
                Ulta products are really good. I use their primer, lipstick and salon services

                  I love this product! I've tried 100 different foundations. I think this goes on best right after a daily moisturizer with SPF. Gives medium coverage and doesn't look heavy. I tried the sample at the store to find the best match. Love that there is primer in there so I can apply 1 less thing.

                    I currently am using creamy natural, but my skin is getting darker with spending more time in the sun. I have blonde hair, green eyes & I THINK pink, not yellow undertones. Would you suggest the next shade up for medium in warm or cool undertones? Thank you!

                      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.

                    What's the difference between a BB cream and a foundation?

                      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!
