Questions & Answers for Buxom Show Some Skin Weightless Foundation

Question
HOW HYDRATING IS THIS?
I need a REALLY hydrating foundation. My skin - even with moisturizer and primer- soaks up the foundation like a sponge. Can anyone give me the scoop on this one?

In my own experience with this foundation it is. My skin is also that way to almost all foundations, but this product turned out to be amazingly perfect for my skin. It feels lightweight on your skin as if you almost don't feel it and my skin always is drying up on me and isn't good with makeup which can be hard to find the right kind of foundations. It really does nourish my skin like no other foundation, I've tried. This is definitely my favorite foundation at the moment. Especially on the go.. & I recommend you to try it out (:
Hope I helped !

This is nourishing for the skin, but not super oily. I would say that it is best for normal ,combo skin. If it is used with an extra rich face cream,,or the bare minerals cream it should give enough non-greasy coverage.
Tip- exfoliate regularly or use some type of microdermabrasion system in order for your skin to absorb the full benefits and moisture of your face creams/lotions. Dead skin will be removed and your skin will look youthful, moist and healthy.

I was going through a period of time where my skin was painfully flakey and dry, no BB cream or moisturizer could help me at all. After about three days of using it, it literally brought my skin back to life! It is incredibly hydrating.

I would say this is SUPER moisturizing. My skins like yours and I found this really hydrating but also not thick and heavy like a moisturizing cream. I use the heavier stuff when I sleep at night, which is oilier for the day but this foundation helps my skin dryness without the grease or thick feel

I have similar skin and this foundation is perfect, especially when paired with Hydrating foundation primer by Laura Mercier. It also helps if you apply with a sponge rather than brush. I use a beauty blender. Hope this helps!

Quite moisturizing, but I don't think you could use it in lieu of a moisturizer.

As far as foundations go, it's mediocrely hydrating. However, I consider this a light BB cream, not a foundation. And there are much more hydrating BB creams out there. (Like the Dr. Jart+ one in the blue tube)

I have ultra oily skin, and it made me a little bit shiny after wearing it for 16 hours without a setting powder. It's so long lasting, but it does have a satin to dewy finish. I would recommend using a setting powder if you don't want to look shiny.

This foundation is chock-o-block full of 'cones, so if you are oily and/or acne-prone you might want to skip it. I know some people will never admit that 'cones are harmful to oily/acne-prone skin, but that does not change the fact that they are. There are SO many choices for foundations these days it makes no sense to buy something bad for your skin just because it's a novelty and you don't want to be left out of it.

I can't remember off hand if it is oil free, but I tend to get oily t-zone by the afternoon... When I wear this as foundation, with a very light dusting of powder (any kind-usually Edward Bess quad illuminating powder), it stays set all day, no greasy areas, no blotting, and it doesn't wear off or get splotchy.

I would not say this is oil-free. It is lightweight so it will not give you the matte effect of a medium/full coverage foundation. I have oily skin and I still love it because since it is light it doesn't attract attention to pimples which some fuller coverage foundations tend to do. If you use a powder over it and then reapply the powder once a day you should be fine!

Would "In the Buff" work if I wear Fairly Medium in bareminerals?
Would "In the Buff" work if I wear Fairly Medium in bareminerals? Or would I need "Sweet As Honey"? I have pink undertones so I would think I need one of those shades, but not sure if "In the Buff" would be too light? I wear Medium in BE in the summer.

For your skin tone, I suggest the shade Tan-Talize Me - warm yellow for tan skin tones.

Most of these don't have a very pinky undertone. They're all quite yellow to neutral. But since it allows your natural skin to shine through, maybe "In The Buff" would work for you!

These shades run darker than listed in the description. I just bought this, and chose Dim the lights, which is for light skin tone. However I'm a lighter end medium skin tone... Normally I wear the medium kit color for Bare Minerals (the starter kit thing)..and my usual foundation is Nars Sheer Glow in Punjab (medium 1)... Dim the lights matches exactly like the Nars.

They are semi-sheer also, and can be blended out or built up. Many other people are posting online how much darker they really are too, so I'd say get the lighter option you're considering and try that first. This is really nice stuff too! You can't even feel you have it on, it lasts all day, and doesn't get greasy like most tinted moisturizers/bb creams etc.

I use it with just my fingers since I don't want to lose too much of it to a sponge. It doesn't streak or get weird when I use my fingers and it blends really easily.

I apply it with my fingers, but you have to have clean hands before you apply. Make sure to put primer on before you apply the foundation. If it becomes spotty or comes off get a setting spray they work great!

I use my hands which seems to work just fine, although when I tried it on at Sephora she used a foundation brush, which I can't quite master yet. You could also use one of those hot pink beauty blender sponges. This makeup is fool-proof enough that it works no matter how you apply it.

This foundation will not work for African American skin that is darker than a caramel/medium brown complexion. Hopefully they will further this new line with darker skin tone foundations.

They do have shades for darker complexions but probably could use a few shades more. I am a true caramel complexion with gold undertones and the Tantilize shade worked for me. They have a few more shades darker than Tantilize but if you are a true mahogany brown girl they may not go deep enough. The colors are buildable so it may be possible to use it just by matching it with your gold or red undertones. It just depends on how much coverage you need. Its definitely a good product worth trying on to see if you find a match. Good Luck!

If you have yellow undertones I would recommend "Tan-Talize Me". Otherwise I would get "Almond the Nude" (it's for neutral beige undertones). My sister is olive and green eyes and she uses "Almond the Nude" and it's a great match.

I wouldn't recommend this exact one if you have dryer skin or any spots. It is very sheer and doesn't cover well.

Show Some Skin vs. Stila CC cream
Thanks to those who answered my finger application question.

Now my new question: I already use the Stila CC color correcting cream broad spectrum SPF 20. Considering the sheerness of this Buxom foundation with light to medium coverage, should I even bother getting it or will it basically have the same effect as the Stila CC?

Hi Addictedbex,

Based on your skintone, we suggest Meet Me Latte - neutral beige for medium skin tones.
