Comments about ULTA Demi Matte Foundation:

I don't usually write reviews on Ulta, but this foundation is a high quality godsend for people with dry problem skin, so...Lettin my sisters know! The trick is to put it on in pretty thick layers. (Two will get you FULL coverage) I don't use prime because it's tricky finding ones that work with it--some of the greasier ones break it up) The thing is--how this settles! I have never effortlessly gotten full coverage to look this good. The thicker you put it on the better it looks. And looks even better later in the day. Very smooth finish. Fills in pores nicely. My one problem with it is transfer. I don't powder it and it stays tacky and WILL rub off, but not completely off, leaving a mark like some do. But does come off on collars. Highly recommended!

Not long lasting at all

By Lily C.

from Tennessee

Comments about ULTA Demi Matte Foundation:

This foundation looks good when you first apply but after only a few hours my face looked very shiny. Like I usually get a little shiny in my t zone but it made my whole face shiny and I used a matte primer and setting powder. And my face never really gets super shiny or anything. Coverage is medium when using 2 pumps. I only have a little redness but normally no acne.

    I have sensitive skin, this product irritates my skin a little. I think it's the SPF in it. But I really like how my skin looks with the product.

      Comments about ULTA Demi Matte Foundation:

      I tried this last year during Ulta's B2G2 sale. At that time, I was using the IT CC cream which was about 5 times as expensive. I continued to use the CC cream during days I'd be outdoors a lot but when I finished it up I used this foundation over Australian Gold tinted sunscreen on days I spent largely outdoors. For normal days, I wear this over a primer (I've been using the Ulta primer which I like as well as Smashbox Photofinish). It lasts into the early evening which is long enough for me, and I've never gotten close to a sunburn or tan. I am almost 60 with normal to dry skin and Lupus, so sun protection is serious business for me. The coverage is definitely less than the IT CC cream but my skin is in great shape except for dark under eye circles, so I just use concealer in that area over this foundation.

        I use daily along with Ulta finishing powder. It actually does what it says, I stay shine free all day and it has SPF which I need since I have Lupus. Finally found a product that does what it says!! YAY!! The color match is perfect, feel light easy to apply.

        Does not absorb oil OR prevent shine

        By Bring back the Double Duty!

        from Akron, OH

        About Me Budget Buyer

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Noncomodegenic

        Cons

        • Difficult To Apply
        • Doesn't absorb oil
        • Doesn't Stay On

        Best Uses

        • Full Coverage

        Comments about ULTA Demi Matte Foundation:

        I bought this as an alternative to the Double Duty which was discontinued for some reason, and thought that this would be the next best thing. I have combination skin with a somewhat oily T-zone, with the Double Duty I could get about 4 hours before the oil would start to show through, but with this it took less than an hour. Not only do I look shiny even with setting with mineral powder, if I even lightly touch my face the makeup rubs right off. I also couldn't get the pump to work at first and now it only works when it feels like it, and if I apply it with a brush I feel like I'm painting on my face.

            A:

            Demi Matte Foundation is similar in that it features buildable coverage and a semi-matte, natural finish. We recommend testing it at your nearest Ulta Beauty store!
