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:

      This is the first time I have used the Ulta Double Duty Foundation and I read all the reviews before buying it. I absolutely love this makeup! It seems kind of thick coming out of the tube but it was so easy to apply and went on smoothly. I was so impressed how easy it was to smooth out because I am 60 years old and I do have wrinkles so I was afraid it would settle into them. I used moisturizer and then applied Ulta Professional Matte Face Primer before using the makeup for a smooth, medium coverage. I will definitely continue to buy this makeup!

          Comments about ULTA Double Duty Foundation:

          Absolutely love the consistency of this foundation- it goes on like the NYX Pore Filler primer but obviously has pigment for coverage- the primer/foundation combo is a good mix in this product. My husband mentioned that this foundation felt velvety on my skin and didn't feel "like makeup".

          Comments about ULTA Double Duty Foundation:

          It comes out like a whipped foundation and is a pain to apply quickly, I tried a beauty blender and a flat top brush. It didn't stay all day so the next time I mixed it with a different foundation to try... it isn't easy to mix.

              Comments about ULTA Double Duty Foundation:

              This is quite literally the WORST foundation I have ever used in my life. It applies terribly and I tried with a sponge, brush, etc. its horrible. It doesn't apply evenly and looks streaky. I eventually was able to work it into my skin but its sticky, and literally sits in your pores. I tried it with and without primer and its all around bad. After a few hours of wear it basically slides off of your face and sits on your skin and looks awful. Its so patchy and greasy. Luckily I got it during the 21 days of beauty on sale otherwise I'd be running back to the store to return it. Don't waste your money on this garbage product.

              The foindation is thick at first but goes on smooth, feels a little heavy yet breathable. Stays on and stays matte most of the day, even through light touching.

                              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!
