    I hope I could find this foundation earlier. It is light yet leaves your skin looking better, no pore settling, not dry/chalky. It gives sun protection and do not breakout.

    I found it applies better with my fingers, the brush does not make any favor to this formula

      Not too heavy, not greasy, not drying. Covers well and doesnt look heavy. I have mild dry rosacea patchs and this really does a good job covering the redness and not being flaky on these spots

      I have acne/ post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation. This product looks natural but covers most of my redness. For me, it is amazing. It gives a healthy and natural glow while covering most minor imperfections. It's definitely worth the price.

        Comments about Buxom Show Some Skin Weightless Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 30:

        This was great for light to medium coverage. It is hydrating and luminous. I used this as a base (in Fair Game) with the bareMinerals Matte foundation (in Fairly Neutral) on top and it lasts well throughout the day. My skin is dry-normal leaning more to one side or the other between winter and summer. I would say this lasted for roughly 3 months with daily use, and I use about a two pearl sized dots. I did sometimes use a concealer around my eyes, and cheeks. I blend it with a brush after placing spots around my face with my finger tips. I am going to try some other brands before I repurchase this one, but it was a lovely foundation. I never experienced breakouts, or had negative reactions.

            A fresh looking hydrating foundation. Not for those looking for coverage but great for those that desire a clean natural look. Great for dry and mature skin. So glad I tried it. My current favorite and I own many. Terrific for the hot summer months.

            It's great! I only put a tiny dot, smaller than a dime, on my hand and apply it to my face. It blended so well with my skin tone and feels lightweight. I just wish it wasn't so expensive.

                I needed a foundation that would cover! I wanted to try something other than drugstore foundation. So I went with this product. I actually like it but I think I would prefer a foundation that dries with more of a matte finish. Nice product, just not a lot of coverage.
