      When i first bought this product i thought there wasn't a lot in the jar...almost a year later and i still have a bit left... i don't use a lot but i do use it everyday..
      The brush applicator can be a little tricky, but once you get the product into the "well" and you knock off the brush inside the container, you will save a lot of product and you are good to go...Provides great light coverage... looks as if you have nothing on..
      LOVE IT!

      The applicator brush does not spread product. I comes to a point therfore product goes on in one spot after moisterizer. Cannot move it, had to transfer onto a different brush, wasting powder all over the bathroom.

            Comments about Philosophy Supernatural Airbrushed Canvas Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

            I have used this product for many years and this new design is horrendous. I don't care what some others have said about how to use properly...its a mess to use. There is hardly any product in the jar. No matter how I use it I have to use alot to get coverage unlike the wonderful sponge that I could dab and smooth on.

            Thankfully I saved a lot of jars and have supply of sponges but getting the powder out to put in the the other container is like a war. Tap and pour takes forever and doesn't get it all. They made the lining indestructible. I have tried knives, drill,etc to get it open so I can pour it but so far no luck.

            I started using this makeup because Bare Minerals was pricey and wasteful/messy to put on with the little 'pot' and the brush. Supernatural is just as good or better but what set it apart was the sponge. Now I will start buying Bare Minerals again and pouring that in to the sponge applicator jar. Costs more but I cannot tolerate this new applicator.

            Used this product for years. Then all of a sudden, lost it...the other on-line make-up giant reported this product was "discontinued". Elated to find it again at my local Ulta. What a huge disappointment! Hate the brush in the top. Philosophy, please, please bring back the sponge-top applicator!! I even saved my old pots & tried my best to get the product into that & use it. That didn't really work, so I gave it up for another brand. I'd buy it forever...the old way. BRING IT BACK. Please. :)

                Comments about Philosophy Supernatural Airbrushed Canvas Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

                I was color matched in the store and was given the lightest shade. Unfortunately when in natural sunlight, the product is still too dark on me. I was also told that the product is full coverage (which it is not - unless I build it up with multiple layers, making it look cakey) and that it was matte (it isn't - it's shimmery).

                This product is also very itchy on my face. I have used other mineral foundations before without this issue. The application process is a pain to deal with as well. After getting the product on the brush, it seems like half of it flies away when trying to apply it to your face.

                I went in to the store to purchase Bare Minerals matte mineral foundation, but was unfortunately talked into buying this product. I'll be taking it back to the store today and getting my usual foundation. It's disappointing, because I really like Philosophy's skin care and bath products. If I was looking for a light coverage, shimmery foundation instead, I would probably like this product more. Unfortunately I was led to believe it was something different by the salesperson.

                The brush is super stiff, not a kabuki brush at all. The cone shaped opend doesn't allow for other brush use. The container is deceiving, there is hardly any product in it.

                I truly feel like all these negative reviews about the packaging are coming from users who maybe aren't well informed on how to use this product. With the lid on and the bottle on its side I like to roll the bottle between my hands.Then you want to unscrew the lid and swirl the brush in the cone to evenly distribute the product & voila! Just repeat when you feel that you need more product. This is SUCH a step above the old packaging-those sponge tops are a bacteria haven! Yuck. This product is gorgeous and light with build able coverage.

                    rich toffee would be the most similar in shade, which is a deep tan with a slightly golden undertone.

                    A:

                    You can certainly layer Supernatural Airbrushed Canvas over any of Philosophy's liquid foundations to set, extend wear, and build coverage. You can also wear Supernatural Airbrushed Canvas alone. You can easily control coverage to achieve the level you desire.
