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 bought this foundation online, and I found my exact color from the foundation finder. I did like that it was matte. I have tried using a blender, foundation brush, stipple brush, and my fingers. I have oily skin with dry areas around my nose and forehead, even after moisturizing, applying primer, using it alone, using setting powder, and without. it clung to my dry patches, settled in my pores, and practically slid right off my face. It is definitely not long lasting, and it felt a little heavy on my face due to the whipped like consistency. I tried so hard to like this foundation.

Comments about ULTA Double Duty Foundation:

Squeeze tube type dispenser is not good. Makes it hard to get the right amount of product out. It's usually a tad too much (which makes waste) or a tad too little. I had to cut the tube in half to get to the last quarter of product.

            I find myself only able to use my fingers to apply this product because brushes and sponges don't blend it at all. The makeup is just really thick and dense but pro is that it provides full coverage.

                        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!
