Comments about Philosophy Miracle Worker Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 30:

Don't buy this product unless you have young pore less skin. Returned this product. Thought I would love it since it was so fluid and easy to apply. After it sets up it sinks into every pore on your face and makes them stand out. I actually have very good skin but this made my skin look much worse.

          Comments about Philosophy Miracle Worker Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 30:

          I was really looking forward to this product from Philosophy. I think if I had dry to normal skin this would be a daily must-use product. However, my combination skin felt too moisturized and was oily very quickly with this product. I needed to keep applying powder- which ruined the lovely natural color/finish of this product.

            Love this product ~ easy to apply and it gives you full coverage. Use a brush to apply ~ makes it go on more evenly. You don't need much.

            Also love the fact that it already has SPF 30.

                • Q:

                  Hi. I have used MAC Studio Fix in NW25, Philosophy Supernatural in Natural (when they had the sponge applicator, loved that), and Bare Minerals in Medium Beige. All powders that I apply for light to medium coverage. I am age 57 and I have average to dry skin (more average) with red cheeks. Thinking to try Miracle Worker or Hope in a Jar, or maybe stay with Bare Minerals and try the BareSkin. Need an opinion on product and what color matches my prior products. Thanks!

                    Miracle Worker Foundation's weightless, anti-aging formula is ideal for your skin type. It provides natural-looking medium coverage. We suggest #6 Medium as your best match.

                  I'm 40 and still have acne prone skin with some acne scars. I have been using Miracle Skin Transformer SPF Face and LOVE it! Do you think this foundation will cover red undertones better and work well with my skin type?

                    A:

                    We recommend trying philosophy’s Hope in a Jar Foundation (Item #: 2269752), since it’s oil-free and won’t react with acne prone skin. If you find the coverage light, try Miracle Worker Concealer (Item #: 2269748) to build up more coverage in specific areas such as nose, chin, etc. You might also consider using the Miracle Worker Miraculous Anti-Aging Moisturizer For Blemish Prone Skin (Item #: 2271931) before applying the foundation, since it's an anti-aging moisturizer that also helps to avoid acne and blemishes.

                  Will this makeup settle into fine lines and accentuate them? I have tried Miracle Blur after all of the promises were sworn to that there was no way that it would settle into the fine lines around my mouth. They lied !

                    This foundation's weightless formula doesn’t feel heavy and won’t settle into lines and pores! To increase wear, you can apply a primer prior to foundation application. We suggest Philosophy The Present (Item #: 2209126) to help further camouflage fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin texture for smooth, long wearing foundation application:

                    Those with younger skin can benefit from using this product, too, as its antioxidant-rich formula also works to counteract premature aging.

                    This product features medium-to-full natural looking coverage and is formulated for all skin types, though if you prefer a lighter weight oil-free formula, we would suggest Hope in a Jar Foundation:

                  Hi,

                  I currently wear SmashBox 3.2 OR MAC MatchMaster 5 - I hurriedly tried on Shade 9 (I honestly do not recall whether it was the Hope in a Jar, etc. It matched my skin fairly well I thought, but I didn't leave it on all day (I went home and washed my face). W/that, would the Shade 9 be your recommendation? Additionally, please be advised that I am very oily and would definitely set it w/either a loose or pressed powder and I always use a primer.

                  Thanks!
