WOW!!!!

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

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.

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

              It performs as promised. The finish provides a natural looking glow without a greasy look. When I read complaints about the lack of coverage I ask myself why these people tried it as it clearly states light to medium coverage. In my opinion if more than one layer is needed it is not the foundation for you. This foundation feels lightweight and hydrating on the skin. It evens out my skin tone nicely but I do add concealer around my eyes and nose. It is truly a your skin but better look. If you are looking to cover a lot of imperfections this is not the product to choose. I personally don't care for a mask like foundation on anyone; it just looks unattractive and unnatural. The one downside is that like most hydrating products it is not terribly long lasting especially since I live in a hot climate. It also has limited shade choices. This one is kind of a sleeper but if you love a fresh natural look, give it a shot. I like it much better than UD Naked Skin and find it comparable to Mac face and body foundation in coverage but is less tacky. The price is reasonable too.

                  Dim the Light is the lighter shade of the 2, it does however have a more neutral undertone where as You're a Natural has more yellow.

                  Although this definitely depends on individual factors such as amount applied per application & frequency of application, we estimate that one tube should last you 60-90 days with typical use. :-)
