                    I have tried a diverse group of products in an effort to achieve that perfect matte finish without looking overdone. I have received multiple compliments about my skin and they always ask what products I use. They are shocked to hear it is a blend of the ULTA Double Duty Foundation followed by this powder. It looks perfect on my skin, and I cannot beat the price. Thank you, ULTA, my search is over!

                    I use Bare Minerals thought I would try this. Make-up does not stay on very well. I would look in the mirror and have spots on my face where it had wore off. Had to reapply. Other than that it was okay.

                    I liked the color and feel, but it just doesn't look right on. It doesn't blend and it emphasizes pores, it doesn't minimize.

                    This isn't necessarily great for my face as it made my foundation splotchy but this is honestly the best undereye concealer setting powder I've ever used!!!! Lasts so long also.

                        Hi! I've never used a Bare Minerals type of product and I'm not a huge fan of liquid foundations so I'd like to try this. What products would you suggest using before and after applying this? Like use a primer or bb cream first? Oh, and since this is a foundation, should I set it with a different powder afterwards? Last question I think (sorry I'm just new to powder foundation), what brushes would you suggest for applying this? I have a powder brush that I use for my cover girl advanced radiance powder by the way. Thanks for any help :)

                          A:

                          We do recommend moisturizing your skin using a moisturizer indicated for your skin type prior to foundation application to ensure a smooth, even finish. Using a primer or a BB/CC cream is optional (ULTA has an assortment to choose from, some of which also address skincare concerns such as oiliness/blemishes). Setting your foundation with a finishing powder is also optional (those with oily skin may wish to).

                          For best results, apply and blend using a full, plush face brush such as ULTA Kabuki Brush (Item #: 2239560) or IT Brushes For ULTA Airbrush Foundation Kabuki Brush #129 (Item #: 2274474).
