I bought this by mistake since I use Miracle worker foundation. This seemed drying and almost sticky once applied. Very disappointing. Love most philosophy products especially the Hope products but not this one of them

Sheer/light coverage, good moisture

By Cherry

from Seattle, Washington

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

I like this foundation, I enjoy it's scent as well as the level of moisture it leaves. I layer this with the Renewed hope in a jar skin tint from Philosophy. I would not enjoy this product as much without layering it with the skin tint to get the level of coverage and color tone I desire; it is very light-sheer coverage. Shade #3 has a grey-ash undertone. Be wary of the moisturizer or primers you use with this product, as it will not layer well with certain formulas. Overall, it is long lasting and is a great base to apply blush, highlight and contour to.

    This is the best foundation I've ever used. People think I look years younger.(Love it) First I put on a creamy moisturizer and then the Hope in a Jar foundation and then I finish with a bronze blusher!! It looks very natural and gives a youthful glow!!!

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

        I swatched the Miracle Worker foundation a while back and mistakenly purchased this months later, thinking it was the same foundation. I have this in shade 3 and think it has a slightly ashy undertone. I cannot use this with any silicone-based face primers or it looks terrible. I've opted to use this with no primer and find the coverage to be light to medium with a natural finish. It is slightly dewy and I've been able to wear it without a setting powder. I use one pump for extremely light coverage and 2 pumps for light-medium. It smells like paint. Blends well with a brush or beauty sponge. You can put powder products on top after it sets, however, I recommend setting the area with powder before applying powder blush or bronzer. I will not repurchase this and will opt for the Miracle Worker foundation instead.

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

        Age: 21 / Skin Type: Normal - Dry / Thoughts: It's actually almost light enough for my ghostly skin, but it is a little matte and sits weird on my nose. I like mixing it with other foundations (dewy ones) to give me a fuller coverage look. It's just an okay foundation.

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

        An Ulta team member recommended this brand to me after I spent about 20 minutes staring at BareMinerals hopelessly. My first Philosophy foundation purchase was their Take A Deep Breath Cushion Foundation. I fell in love with the product, but not the container. I thought the application pad absorbed way too much of the product and it didn't last me long enough at all, especially for the price.
        I decided to try this foundation hoping for the same coverage/results but a longer use - this was perfect! This bottled usually lasts me 3-4 months (one, 2-pump application a day) Not only will the product last all day, it wont cake or become greasy by the end of work! I also have extremely acne prone skin and I haven't had a single breakout since using this!!!! (Used to use store brand foundation with acne meds in it and broke out all the time still)
        Seriously nothing beats this foundation! Finding the perfect light, matte foundation has given me confidence and HOPE.

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

        Love the formula of this foundation - I get compliments on my skin when I wear it. It doesn't settle into fine lines, has decent light coverage, and makes my skin feel smooth and healthy. If you're needing to correct a lot of discoloration this foundation won't give you what you need as it's not anywhere near full coverage. Unfortunately I cannot find a good shade match in it. I have warmer/yellow undertones and these tend to run more cool and neutral. I've tried adding yellow pigment drops but that just seems to make the foundation turn more orange. Would love to see more warm shades because again, the formula is excellent.

            No, as with most moisturizers, the Hope In A Jar Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 has a "dewy" finish. We recommend allowing the product to completely dry before applying another product.
