      I used this on my sister in law when I did her makeup for her wedding. It's the only foundation she's found that matches her skin exactly. She has normal skin that breaks out rarely. I was able to build coverage where we needed it without looking cakey or even obvious compared to the rest of her face. She also uses this as concealer. She likes that it's moisturizing and contains SPF. Her makeup stayed all throughout the ceremony and reception, which included lots of dancing, and looked great on camera, both video and digital photos.

        My daughter is a porcelain doll. I am not. She can wear drugstore makeup as well as high end brands. The fair in this product is perfect for her. She's only 14, but her skin is flawless and difficult to match. I can achieve a nice finish with this, also. It covers my rosacea. It's a natural, not manufactured color.

          This product is very smooth and applies great. The coverage is light weight and it does NOT cover like a full coverage foundation. I like how it feels on my skin. BUT I am returning this product because it just leaves me too oily. I blot my face like 4 times during my work hour and the coverage does not last. And yes I noticed that it does oxidize a bit too.

            Love this product. Goes on well- I use a primer and then apply product with a brush. Buildable coverage, natural finish and a perfect color match. It feels weightless and does not exaggerate pores. I will definitely buy this again.

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

            love this on my skin! but like it states it is LIGHT coverage so understand that before you are buying. you can up the coverage a bit but you need to let the first layer dry. also a setting powder is a must with this product if you have oily skin or you will notice that it doesn't have long lasting wear. but those are just some suggestions for others. on my skin however it looks and feels great especially since I have texture and redness on my skin it covers nicely without accentuating the texture.

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

                Hides my pores. Super blendable. Not heavy. Silky smooth texture. And it doesn't crease AT ALL in the lines on my forehead or between my brows when I use my smashbox primer with it. Every other foundation I've tried creases in those areas. Staying power is not good unless you use a primer so use one! My biggest complaint is that they don't have my correct shade. I have pink undertones. The lightest shade they have with pink undertones is way to dark. And the neutral shades just look to yellow on me. :(

                      A:

                      Hey Buxom Babe! This foundation is a lightweight formula with a satin finish. If you have combination skin it would work best in the drier areas of the face. For the oilier areas we recommend setting it with a powder for a more matte finish.
