      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.

          This has quickly become my favorite foundation. It blends smoothly and easily without being greasy or too thick. I was a shade 5 and went up to a shade 6 as the seasons are changing, and it is still perfect.

              This is my first time trying this brand for makeup. The young lady who works at Ulta recommended it and she tried it on me. To my surprise it gave me medium coverage without looking like heavy makeup. I will be buying this product 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.

                      Comments about Philosophy Take A Deep Breath Cushion Foundation:

                      I wanted to try this foundation for the longest time and I finally took the plunge! After reading all the wonderful reviews and seeing how amazing the finish it gives, I wanted to try this foundation before it's no longer available (not sure if this is a permanent item). I have oily/combo skin which is starting to change as I'm getting older and I have been wearing foundations that are more hydrating lately. I have medium skin tone and I chose the shade 5, which is "Beige". Shade 6 is more Tan if you have deeper skin tone. I wish Ulta would give the actual shade name/description online to make it easier to choose the right shade. I purchased mine in the store, so I was able to see the color in-person. I apply this foundation with a brush because I thought the sponge picked up too much foundation and it seemed very wasteful. You do not need to use very much product, just lightly dip your makeup brush and apply a little at a time. This foundation leaves your skin feeling hydrated all day long, but not greasy! I always use a setting powder, so I am fine. I love the package and the nice scent (call me strange), but it's a nice clean scent and not heavy. Philosophy always makes great foundations. I think you will be pleasantly surprised with this one!

                        This is my first review ever although I read many ! Was looking for a new foundation for my changing dryer skin as I approach 55. Last week tried and purchased many ........ including $82.00 Christian Dior foundation.... then Chanel then ..,, Estée Lauder liked the look but wasn't crazy about my color match and it had mica which makes me itch. Then today ran into Ulta at lunch to check out philosophy's cushion foundation after reading reviews and tube reviews. Couldn't wait to come home and test out. Couldn't believe the look , coverage , feel and color. #4. So thrilled !!!!! Loved it !! Seriously the best I have ever tried. Looked wonderful. Now just worried what if it ever gets discontinued. Going to stock up. Sorry for the long comment but so thrilled ...

                          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????

                        • Q:

                          Is this foundation suitable for people with younger skin (early 20s)? And how much SPF is in this foundation? And will it do well if it is layered with other products or layering with itself (will it cake up)?

                            Yes, this product is formulated for all skin types. It contains an SPF 20. It blends and builds beautifully, for sheer to full coverage so that other products are not needed.
