            Ever since I first tried this foundation, it's been my absolute favorite! I use it everyday -- whether I have a light look for the workday or full done makeup for going out -- this is always my go-to. I will never use anything else.

            There is not enough product for such a large container. I used to like your mousse that you discontinued, and this is an acceptable replacement.

                Comments about ULTA Fabulous Face Compact Foundation:

                When I got this product , I was looking for something that was compact in size so I wouldn't have to take my glass jar bottles of foundation because I wear so much makeup during the day I needed something that would fit in my makeup bag that I take with me everyday. Great Product for what it is entitled to be , but the only thing is that it is alot creamier than I imagined it would be. If you don't mind creaminess , go for it ! I would recommend this product for anyone regardless of age and/or skin type.

                The compact foundation and powder are good and go on well however I prefer the Ulta brand bare minerals. And I try to find my color and your stores that are in my area don't carry my color so I had to go to the compacts.

                      I typically purchase Bareminerals pressed powders for my foundation and I decided to venture off from the name brands and see if I could find a cream foundation that I liked for a fraction of the price. And well, I found it! I usually stock up when they are on sale. :)

                          A:

                          Yes, we recommend cleaning the sponge applicator weekly or more frequently if you have acne-prone skin. To clean, dampen the sponge with water, then apply a small amount brush shampoo or gentle hair shampoo. We recommend using the Professional Brush & Sponge Cleaner:
                          http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod4220121

                          Massage into a lather, then rinse, squeezing excess water from the sponge. Repeat until the water runs clear. Gently squeeze out excess water, then lay the sponge flat to fully dry before next use.

                          Although oil-free, Fabulous Face does not contain sunscreen and does not transform into a liquid as Cover Girl AquaSmooth Compact Foundation does. Both feature buildable coverage with a smooth, natural looking finish.

                          For those who use Classic Beige in AquaSmooth, we recommend Classic Beige in Fabulous Face. This shade can be tested at your nearest ULTA Beauty store:

                      • 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.
