Surprisingly good

  • Good Pigmentation
  • Lightweight
  • Long-Lasting

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Acne-Prone or Oily Skin
    • Full Coverage

    Comments about Philosophy Hope In A Jar Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

    I have terribly oily skin so I tend to avoid liquid makeup. I got this on a whim while it was on sale, and am happily surprised. It doesn't look greasy, it doesn't melt off, and it helps keep my oiliness down, even during the hot Georgia summer.

      I have age spots at 65 years of age and needed all-day coverage. The IT foundation seemed to last longer.

      Beautiful!

      Comments about Philosophy Hope In A Jar Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

      This foundation is a breath of fresh air! I have dry skin and neutral undertones and finding a a foundation that works for both of those things is super difficult. It is light to medium coverage with a beautiful dewy finish. Perfect for summer or for when you're not wanting anything too heavy. It's not exactly waterproof but with a setting spray it will last a good while. Will definitely repurchase. :)

        Got two colors for summer and winter coverage. Got based upon reviews comparing to other high end reviews. Gives glow. Wonderful smell. Felt like still had glow 12 hours after working. Can tell keeps skin moist. Even coverage without looking like had makeup on. Got # 6. &7

        Comments about Philosophy Hope In A Jar Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

        I really want to love this makeup. It matches me perfectly and blends so well. It is absolutely perfect for about five hours and then all of the sudden my face is a grease ball. My days can last up to 10 hours a day sometimes more and I don't have time to reapply. I need something that can last that long and unfortunately this doesn't cut it. I'm giving it three stars and recommending it to a friend because I do indeed live in a humid climate and if my days were short and I had time to reapply this would be the perfect foundation.

                I really like the way this applies and feels on my skin. The problem is the shades choices not enough and the tones just don't match my light olive complexion.

                  • Q:

                    I have been using the Philosophy Hope in a Jar moisturizer and I really love that. I was using the Bare Minerals powder foundation. I have really dry skin, I have redness and I am also in my 40's. Will this foundation flake on me or settle into my lines and will I need to use an additional product for my redness and my pores?

                      A:

                      You can achieve medium coverage with either product. To address the signs of aging, we suggest using Miracle Worker Foundation, which features an anti-aging formula to help improve radiance and tone, even after you take it off, and to visibly take up to 5 years off your complexion!

                  • Q:

                    I currently use clinique's even better foundation in creamwhip #14. Which color in this product would replace my clinique formula? I have issues with foundation settling into the lines around my eyes making them more pronounced. Will this product do that? If so, would there be a better option for me from the philosophy line?

                      because eczema is a diagnosed skin condition, we always recommend that you check with your physician before using any new products.

Is there another product that I can use to get rid of that? I use dermablend under my foundation right now but it's a little heavy so is there anything light weight? THANKS!
