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 really love this product. The color blends seemlessly into my skin and really gives a great all over coverage. The only thing I do not like about this product is that it is extremely hard to squeeze out of the tube. I find it is easier to blend out with a brush as opposed to a beauty blender because the formula is on the thicker side, but the finished look still looks smooth regardless of which tool was used.

      I just purchased this product for the first time and it is wonderful! I was using Bare minerals and Too faced Born this way liquid foundations and find that this one rates right up there with them. The price is great,very affordable. Very easy to apply with beauty blender and has great coverage and a very smooth finish. I am very pleased with this product and will definitely be purchasing it again.

            I bought this to use as a basic cover when I'm having a good skin day. VERY thick and you must apply quickly. I have dry skin so this does tend to show that off if I don't moisturize properly. I do love how light weight this feels and that it doesn't cause my skin to become oily, just wish it could last longer than 4-5 hours.

            I did not like this, I wanted to try a liquid foundation as I usually use Bare minerals. I did not like it. The coverage was poor and it settled in the lines in my face, making my face look worse not better. I used it once and then took it back.

            • 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!

                Double Duty Foundation by ULTA provides medium to full coverage and works well to cover redness. However, for those with rosacea, we always recommend reviewing the ingredients list of any product with your dermatologist prior to use.
