This product is light-weight and doesn't leave my skin oily. I use a tiny amount in morning just under my eyes and over any blemishes, then I apply my powder and I am good to go for the day.

    Comments about ULTA Double Duty Foundation:

    I love this foundation! I have extremely red skin and this foundation does a great job at covering it up. It stays on all day and does not crease!! (As long as I put moisturiser on first) I have found that if i apply it with my blending sponge then I get the best results. I especially love getting this product when ulta is having its two for $10 sales so I can get it for only $5 each

      I don't always have time before work in the morning to do a full-face look, and I love using this foundation for those days, so I can eliminate the primer step without sacrificing the look.

      It is not a perfect foundation and I would not wear it for a night out or when going for a elegant look, but it's great for everyday use.

        Coverage is consistent and easy to apply.
        Comes out "thick" but is easy to spread over skin
        that you have moisturizer on. Colors blend well.
        Well-priced.

              Comments about ULTA Double Duty Foundation:

              So I want to love this product, but here are my reasons that I have issues with it

              1. I lvoe ulta products, and they have amazing sales which means I own tons.
              THis product, is smaller than it seems in the picture, it is 1 oz.
              2. It is very thick!, I enjoy thick foundations so usually this is no issue for me, but this foundation is
              3. hard to blend
              4. doesn't cover as much as it seems like it would since it is SO THICK? Why is that? no idea...
              5. builable cover, ehhhh no so much because it is such a thick foundation.
              6. long wearing.... yes it is I will give it that... is it because it has a primer in it?? I have no idea...
              7. no the best blending ability
              8. what is the best application for this product....??
              well I have tried , a flat top foundation brush.. not my favorite, the coverage gets spotty... next a regular foundation brush, a little better but again not amazing. Fingers or a beauty blender seem to be the best since it so thick.

              over all feelings...
              Skip this product unless you go in a swatch it and you a thick foundation that needs a little extra lovin to blend in.
              It doesn't feel heavy to me. Skip this product if your buying it full price, but if it is on sale like it usually is I would try it out you may like it.

                    A:

                    We recommend visiting your nearest ULTA store to test the shades:
                    http://www.ulta.com/ulta/stores/storelocator.jsp

                    This product features a built-in primer, so it works wonderfully on normal to dry skin to even skin texture. We recommend applying moisturizer prior to foundation to help with dryness.

                    Powder is optional. We recommend translucent ULTA Finishing Powder (Item #: 2126667).
