I am a rather recent Bobbi Brown convert -- I have a lot of pink in my skin, and I was not initially drawn to the idea of yellow-based foundations -- but I have had luck with shade matching in this line, whereas most others are too dark (or actually too pink, and end up peachy). I love having this foundation stick in my purse -- it's so convenient! I use Alabaster (00, which seems less yellow than the rest), and it's great to use for mid-day touch-ups and to use as a concealer. My skin is on the dry side, and it does not look cakey or thick. This is definitely one of my new must-haves! My only gripe is that it seems a little expensive ($38) for how much product is actually in the stick -- but that won't be a deterrent to me buying it again!
First stick foundation I have ever used and I love it. I wear 1 Warm Ivory and it is a PERFECT match. BB is great with shade matching. This foundation provides great coverage, is creamy, blends well, and lasts, not to mention is easy and quick to apply for those of us who are in a rush. Also, my skin has become sensitive lately, and this has not caused any breakouts or irritation for me, which is a plus. It's expensive, but all BB products I've used are well worth the price.
By far my favorite BB foundation due to it's versatility as a concealer, spot corrector, and foundation along with portability and ease of use. I have been using this for years and love it. I wear shade warm beige and it is a very natural match with no pink or orange tones whatsoever.
Biggest waste of money oily, sticks to dry patches, broke me out and doesnt blend :(
i have normal/dry skin and this came off in 2 hours.. if your oily stay away..
hmm i have experimented with this foundation since that review.
i find that when i use my simple moisturiser before hand it looks nicer, i'll finish it up but i will not buy this again
I'm a fan of Bobbi Brown products and their range of skin tone shades. My foundation stick matched my skin tone perfectly, however, I found the foundation stick to be quite oily/greasy.
I've been a long time user of Napoleon's foundation stick and i LOVED the matte finish. When I converted to Bobbi Brown, it was a bit of a let down. You might be lucky enough to maybe tone down the oilyness from using a mattifying primer - but I really dont think its worth it considering the price (AUD).
This is my new go-to touch up foundation stick. Warm Almond (Shade 6.5) is perfect for my skin. No oxidation. Easy and convenient to re-apply. I love it. For reference, my complexion is equivalent to MAC NC50/NW 45, Estee Lauder Rich Cocoa.
I have huge pores, and unfortunately this product settled in my pores leaving very obvious dots of foundation on my face. The color match was perfect, but since i have red cheeks, it was so obvious. The sales person was unable to help me find a BB product that would solve my pore issues so I reluctantly returned it. Sadly, because the color match was perfect and I liked the coverage!
Broke me out.
Also, didn't last very long on my face.
I have used several BB foundations: this stick works better as a concealer/for problem areas with liquid on others - all over the face it really does look like a mask (guess you could sheer it out with a sponge, but why bother). Not the best foundation out there for the money, but I suppose ok for travel/touch ups. BB liquid foundations more promising
I've used this product for about seven years now in both porcelain and alabaster. It provides good coverage for spots and acne (faded cystic acne spots). The lighter color matched marks on my neck - set with powder. I apply in a patting motion with fingertips. This seems to work best if you do not need to use foundation all over your face but just in trouble spots. It's so portable and non-messy. Tip: rub the foundation with your finger for a few seconds to warm it and make application smoother. This was the only thing I could find to cover adult cystic acne and match very fair skin.
