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.

extremely thick

By Kat

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.

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.

            Didn't like this. It's too sheer, even when I try to put it on heavier and it didn't wear well, even with primer. For the budget buyer, the Revlon color stay for oily/combo skin is much better coverage and wear.

                    Oh dear. This makeup was not at all what I expected. Neither creamy nor smooth, it was much like paste in my attempt to warm between my fingers and smooth on. It was rock hard and stretched my skin painfully. The coverage was less than pretty and I wound up throwing it out. This is not what anything labeled "cream" should feel like.

                    Would be the perfect foundation but I find it to be a little think and sometimes hard to apply and blend. After a little bit of effort with the Real Techniques
                    Miracle Complexion Sponge it does well. Just takes to much for my everyday routine.

                        Soft Ginger - deep with more cool undertones.
                        Rich Mocha - deepest with more neutral undertones.
