            It has the coverage I like. Its not sheer but it is light. Could build coverage. I'd rather not though because that would require a lot of product and this little bottle is expensive! I got it when it was on sale. I'm glad I did because. I really like it. The only thing I dislike is that my bronzer looks muddy and will not blend with it. I may have to get a cream bronzer. Other than that it's nice. I probably won't purchase again because of the price.

            Huge fan of Philosophy skin care and thought I would try the foundation during 21 Days of Beauty sale. Shade was much too light for me (which is probably my own fault for choosing it), but I was overall not a fan of the coverage. Initially goes on well but is not long-lasting. Feels very heavy throughout the day. I have combination skin so I would notice parts fading earlier than others giving me a blotchy finish. May work better for non-oily, non-combination skin types.

            I was recommended this product and currently after using it for a week I'm thinking about returning it. I have combonation skin and when I was oily the foundation looked very shinny. I was looking for a fuller coverage then this one gives. However, if you have normal skin, want a lightweight foundation, and are willing to pay the price it's great! For me, it's not worth the price.

            Its a good product. I bought it on sale to try it and its the best so far. Light coverage that's buildable and doesnt bother break outs. A major con is the limited colors available. Leaves a dewy finish which is perfect for summer. Definitely going to buy it again.

              • 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.
