    Comments about ULTA Double Duty Foundation:

    I bought this in my search for a bb cream that matched my skin tone. I'm pretty pale so most turn orange on me. This one didn't! Has good coverage and lasts thru a whole workday. Would buy again.

              It was so thick I was not able to use it with a brush as I do with my other similar products. It didn't go well on my face either. Wouldn't blend.

                  Comments about ULTA Double Duty Foundation:

                  I was worried to buy this at first. I wasn't going to purchase the foundation because it is more expensive than what I normally spend on an everyday coverage. But...it was my birthday and I ultimately decided to splurge. Best decision ever. My only complaint is the amount; I feel like I am going to run out soon!

                              Both of these shades are ideal for those with warm/golden undertones. Natural Beige is slightly darker than Pure Beige.

                              Because Illuminating is suitable for all complexions, we are unable to determine your match in Double Duty from just this information. We recommend visiting your nearest ULTA Beauty store to test the shades to determine your best match:

                              This foundation is formulated with a form of hyaluronic acid, which is a very hydrating ingredient, as well as with sweet almond extract to sooth and nourish sensitive skin. For those with dry skin, we recommend moisturizing and exfoliating (2X weekly for sensitive skin) to ensure smooth application.

                              The priming benefits built into Double Duty Foundation's formula ensure long lasting wear, even in hot and humid environments! To help further extend your makeup's wear as well as to combat shine, you can set your makeup using a finishing powder such as Fabulous Face Pressed Powder:

                              For those with porcelain skin tones, we recommend Classic Ivory (light cool with more pink undertones). This shade can be tested at your nearest ULTA Beauty store:

                              You should not experience any flashback (white cast) effect from flash photography using the Double Duty Foundation. It provides a soft focus effect that is perfect for photos!

                              Yes, absolutely! It features buildable coverage from medium to full, so we'd suggest applying a little at a time while blending until you've achieved your desired level of coverage.
