    Comments about ULTA Fabulous Face Compact Foundation:

    Holy grail foundation! WOW! This stuff is a godsend! I have never had much luck with cream compacts before, but I needed something with more coverage and better staying power so I picked this up at my local Ulta. I have extremely dry skin with moderate acne scarring so my goals were two things: 1- to find a heavy duty, full coverage foundation that doesn't stick to my dry spots and 2- to give me a fresh, smooth, FLAWLESS face and canvas for the rest of my makeup. This product truly delivers on both! It feels lightweight and airy when applied which I absolutely love (I hate the feeling of cakey makeup). I spray my sponge lightly with water to damped it before use. Then I dab into the cream and stipple it into my skin. This method and foundation combination is just flawless on my skin. The best part is you can layer for more intense, nighttime coverage or just apply lightly for daytime. Either way results are the same; glowing, fresh looking, even toned and smooth skin! Exactly what I've been searching for! The staying power is phenomenal as well. I put this on at 8am and had a 7hr drive to a wedding and it lasted all day and through dancing all night long! If there was ever a product to give 5 stars to, it's Ulta's Fabulous Face cream compact. I died and went to smooth faced heaven!

                • Q:

                  I am 55 years old, with somewhat dry to dry skin. I take good care of my skin. I would describe my skin as ok, not good, not bad. I definitely need a medium coverage foundation. I have very few wrinkles for my age. I need help finding a foundation that I love and not just "make do" with.I prefer a compact cream foundation. I don't powder anymore-too cakey. Now for the real stickler-I work 12 hr shifts so I need a foundation that doesn't settle into fine lines, isn't too greasy AND is long-wearing WITHOUT being a dry, chalky mask!
                  Difficult, but I know it's out there...
                  I thought this Ulta cream-to-powder foundation might just be the answer to my prayers. I've tried everything from Bobbi Brown (her new Skin Stick foundation is lovely, it just doesn't last. Her long-wearing compact foundation makes my skin flaky) to Rimmel!
                  I also need a shade recommendation for summer. For reference, I am a good match to theBalm medium and MAC NC30-35. Medium with yellowish undertones.
                  PLEASE HELP!!!

                    Natural Buff (Item #:2231962) may be your best match. This foundation provides long lasting, smooth coverage and never settles into fine lines and wrinkles.

                    To increase its staying power further, we recommend first applying a primer such as ULTA Fabulous Face Foundation Primer (Item #: 2231749) to keep foundation in place all day long:

                    You may want to try Natural Buff (Item #:2231962) for medium-to-tan skin tones with neutral/golden undertones, which is the next shade deeper than Classic Beige.

                    Please note that these shades can be tested at your nearest ULTA store, where we offer complimentary shade matching services, if you prefer:
