Review: Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation

Hey Everyone!

Wow, your discussion yesterday was amazing. I really appreciated your thoughts about the issue!

Today I’ll be doing a review of the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation. Bobbi Brown foundations are supposed to be gold so let’s see how this one holds up!

The foundation comes in a pump bottle which is convenient and doesn’t waste too much excess product. The product itself is surprisingly watery and thin, not like most foundations I’ve tried. At first pump, it seems like it wouldn’t provide any coverage, thinner than a tinted moisturiser but you’ll be surprised! The best way to use this would probably be a paddle brush if you need the coverage, if not a good clean stippling brush does a good job in blending everything together because it’s such a thin consistency.

The coverage is pretty good. Despite it’s watery makeup, it does a great job covering everything – for sure a medium to high coverage foundation which is cool because you get the feeling that you aren’t wearing much for cool coverage.

This is the foundation without a powder on it. It’s for sure not a matte foundation so be careful if you know you’re going to be particularly oily that day. It looks like skin in some parts but where there are the usual imperfections, it cakes up a bit as you can see. Not great for acne prone skin.

But, set with a powder, it looks pretty flawless. But even then, it’s not that flawless.

Honestly, this isn’t one of my favourite foundations. It doesn’t last as long as I’d like and it oils up too fast and not in the most graceful manner. However, the ‘technology’ involved in making such a blend-able foundation go on with such coverage should be applauded so I clap, but I don’t clap for long when it starts to fade off. At 75 AUD, it was really quite expensive and it’s not something I would repurchase again.
