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 wanted so badly to like it

By A.W.

from Nevada

Comments about ULTA Double Duty Foundation:

I had already tried three different brands of drugstore foundations, trying to find a foundation pale enough to match my skin tone. In a moment of desperation I found this foundation (in the color classic ivory) and it matched me!!!
I was SO excited!
Got home, put it on my skin (I applied it with my fingers like it suggests) and it grabbed onto and exaggerated every single dry patch on my skin.
So I figured that I had been too hasty and took it off, put some very moisturizing face cream on, waited for it to sink in and tried again. This foundation still clung to every dry skin cell. So I took it off again, exfoliated my face well, put moisturizer on as well as the foundation, and still ended up with the same results.

As happy as I was to find a drugstore foundation that was pale enough for me, it wasn't worth the effort to try and make this foundation work.

        Comments about ULTA Double Duty Foundation:

        I bought this foundation because I wanted to try something different and it was a terrible idea! It is thick and makes my face look very cakey. I won't be wasting my money again.

        • Normal Skin

        Comments about ULTA Double Duty Foundation:

        I really like the way this product applies. It has GREAT coverage but I don't recommend using it unless you need a heavy duty coverage. It does go on quite thick, which I personally do not mind. I only wear this when my skin is being pesky and breaking out a lot. It doesn't cause more acne, which is a plus and it leaves my skin without ANY oil. Im not usually oily, but I have had some foundations cause oil. This product does not. One complaint I have is that, due to it's heavy consistency and my activity throughout the day, it will often sweat off in certain areas of my face (mainly just one spot on my chin and on my t-zone sometimes). If I don't bring a blender to fix this, then the pigmentation looks bad in that specific spot. Either way, I recommend this product over drug store brands FOR SURE. Another plus is that you don't have to replace it often and you don't need to use a lot to get realistic coverage.

                My skin tone is light, but with reddish cheeks and chin. I guess it is rosacea. Would I be better off with a warm shade, neutral, or cool to disguise the ruddiness?
