Comments about Philosophy Take A Deep Breath Cushion Foundation:

I went in to Ulta looking to try the IT Cosmetics line as recommended by my sister. The sales person immediately steered me away and toward Philosophy. I'm a devout Philosophy user for skin care and perfume, but hadn't used their makeup before. Upon initial application, I liked this product. It was dewy and creamy. But it was 105 degrees outside and within an hour or two, began to look cakey. I did end up purchasing it and have found a lighter application with a moist beauty blender works better for me. I really don't think this product is a good value for the price though. There seems to be so little product in the compact. I'm not a daily user, so time will tell how long it lasts.

      Comments about Philosophy Take A Deep Breath Cushion Foundation:

      I've been using this foundation for a while and I really like it. The color blends perfectly with my skin tone and it does cover up my problem areas fairly. The only things are that after 8 hours at work my foundation seems to disappear so my acne on my cheeks start to show and my natural oils come through. Maybe I need to use a better setting spray but other than that, it's a really good product and the case is very useful.

          Awesome foundation! Love the application! Ordered on line and it was too light. Went to local store and was given excellent assistance in correcting shade. Would recommend not ordering on line for that reason. Love it and will buy again.

                    Comments about Philosophy Take A Deep Breath Cushion Foundation:

                    I have switched back to Philosophy skincare products for my aging & combination skin and am so happy I did. Decided to try their cushion foundation & was so impressed!! This is a great medium coverage foundation that is very easy to apply. I use a sponge that I dampen and then blot/press the makeup on with. The initial finish is a bit dewy and then 'dries' down for such a wonderful look. My pores are covered & most blemishes. No, I don't look like a Greek goddess but I look so much better than with other foundations! I have only used for a week, so I don't know how long the compact lasts, but I am getting one for my purse. I touch up during the day & this will be great. I also brush on a little finishing powder in my oily areas after application. This outperforms other makeup in this price range, so it's a winner for me!! The best thing would be if Philosophy would come out with a finishing powder to compliment this foundation.

                    • Q:

                      I looked at the shade finder, but it's no more helpful than the above. It would be really helpful to have a better description of each shade. I'm a MAC NC25 - 30, so light-medium skin with neutral to warm undertones. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that I may be either shade 4 or 5??? Can anyone help me pick the best shade for my skin tone????
