    Comments about Philosophy Miracle Worker Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 30:

    I LOVE this makeup. I have been looking for a good foundation for over a year now and have tried many different kind and brands. I have some redness in my cheeks, some fine lines from aging, and have a hard time finding something with good coverage. The first time I tried this makeup, I knew it was what I had been looking for.

    My first thought when I put the product on my fingers was that I had made a mistake. The makeup was more watery than any I have used before. I figured it would have no coverage and disappear quickly. I was definitely wrong. First, the makeup goes on so nicely and it goes a long way so you don't have to use much. It has a smooth feel to it and blends very easily. It covers the redness but does not seem to settle in my lines or pores. It doesn't feel greasy, nor does it make my skin feel dry.

    Second, I have never had a makeup that makes my skin look so alive. I love how fresh it looks and am very happy with the makeup.

    Only drawback is the price, but the old saying "You get what you pay for" comes to mind. This is definitely quality makeup that I will continue to use.

        Very difficult for me to find a foundation color that looks natural and frequently have to mix 2 shades to get the desired look. Shade 4 is perfect and the coverage is perfect for my 59 year old skin, not to heavy, not too light. Very pleased with this product!

          This foundation covers all of my flaws. (i.e.: large pores, age spots, birth marks, and redness) very well. I first purchased this product when it was an Ulta special priced product special last year. A little goes a long way. I bought myself a new one and 1 for each of my daughters for the holidays who don't normally splurge for makeup. They love it too!

            I am 32, fair, with a few age spots, minimal wrinkles and very dry skin. My dry skin seems to be my biggest issue these days so I purchase foundations that cater to dry skin. I purchased this foundation and the Philosophy matte primer. I love the coverage and glowing look I get when I first apply this product. However, after a few hours the product literally slides and/or melts off my face. I'm talking lines of foundation sliding off my face! Keep in mind I have VERY dry skin so for makeup to slide off my face says A LOT!

            I'm really bummed because the initial look I'm able to achieve with this product is wonderful but it does not stand up after a couple of hours wear.

                    I currently use Revlon Color stay whipped #240 Natural Beige. I just turned 40 and typically have normal skin. However, I am going through chemotherapy for stage 4 Cancer and it along with other medications are drying out my skin and causing premature aging. I'm looking for a medium to full coverage liquid foundation. Would this be a good choice for me and if so what shade would you suggest? I cannot get into a store to sample shades. Thank you in advance for your response.
