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

    I purchased the shade "fair game", which is the closest match in this range. I am fair and yellow skinned, but the warm shades are all too dark. Fair game is neutral, but runs more on the yellow rather than pink side, which is why I can pull it off. For reference I am a Mac NC15. As far as the formula, I absolutely love this in the winter time when my skin is feeling dry. It is sheer, so do not expect to get full coverage. The product is undetectable on the skin if you get the right shade.

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

      I can use this for a no makeup day or a full face of make up. It blends beautifully, doesn't catch on most of the texture on my dry patches, and doesn't break up or wear off my oily areas. The formula is lightweight and I don't even notice I'm wearing it. It evens out skin tone beautifully without turning my face into a one color mask.

        I love this foundation! I didn't want a full coverage makeup because I don't have major problems with my skin, just a little redness. I love this foundation because it gives your skin a nice glow and radiance but doesn't look cakey. You literally can't event tell I'm wearing makeup. It just looks like I have amazing radiant skin. It is so lightweight, I can't even feel it. It's also great if your skin gets a little dry because it's super hydrating. I also love that is doesn't crack around lines like a lot of foundations I've tried. Another great thing about it is that it's build able in the places you need a little more coverage. One last thing that I love about it is that it comes in very light shade! I've tried the lightest shade of so many foundations and it's always to dark, but this one works on very light skin. I love it so much!!

            This was everything I wanted in a foundation. I've been trying to do a lighter base and just spot conceal if needed so I don't look cakey and this stuff delivers.
            -It's lightweight, feels like nothing on my skin
            -Buildable
            -Matches my skin perfectly (I use silky-negli-beige and I have light-medium olive skin)
            -Not cakey at all, looks just like skin but gives adequate coverage
            -Very moisturizing and has skin benefits including SPF
            -Radiant finish but you can powder if you want to and it still doesn't cake up
            -Doesn't oxidize throughout the day
            -Doesn't irritate my skin, hasn't caused any breakouts so far which is great because I'm pretty acne prone
            Overall I'm so happy I bought this and will continue to use so long as I continue to not break out!

                I needed a lighter foundation. I moved from the wonderful Becca liquid gel foundation to this one because summer is approaching.
                I tried every single light weight foundation and this one was my favorite along with tartes cc cream. I went for this one because of the beautiful glow it gives your face and how moisturizers it makes hour skin feel after.

                  This foundation has everything except for the SPF 50 that I require every day. It's the right color for my ultra-fair neutral skin (I use the lightest shade this foundation offers). It blends seamlessly. It has more coverage than a BB cream, but is in no way thick and opaque like a traditional foundation. It sets with a nice luster that's not super shiny, nor matte. It still has SPF 30. It's seriously the easiest to apply out of any of my foundation products. It might even be more blendable than some of my skincare products! Applying with fingers totally works, which I do, and then use a sponge blend where necessary. It's absolutely foolproof for anyone who isn't a makeup expert, but pros will love the versatility on the day they don't want to use a primer, a setting spray, etc since it does so well on its own. Whenever I find a product I love, I want to tell everyone since I'm so paranoid that the company will randomly discontinue it. In the case of this foundation, it'd be a crime.

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

                  I thought when I first tried this I had found my holy grail foundation, which is nearly impossible to believe. I have dry flaky skin with texture and aging being a significant issue. Due to rosacea, I also have a lot of redness. It has been difficult finding a foundation that doesn't accentuate this and that matches my neck but doesn't turn my face gray. In the Buff, a cool light to medium shade, is a beautiful pale rose gold shade, and it's my perfect match in the winter. The foundation actually moisturizes like it says it will, yet it always feels breathable, and it's significantly buildable. I didn't like the finish (dewy), but it took a light dab with my Dior perfecting/refreshing powder to create a lasting soft glow that suited me better.

                  So what's the problem? Well, if it is at all humid or warmer out, the foundation just melts right off, even with powder to set. Within 3-4 hours, it was all gone. I feel it's just a bit pricey to be so temperamental.

                  However, my skin loves it, the color is great, and it's soothing in the cold. I'll repurchase for the winter when my skin needs an extra helper.
