I guess my skin is 'different' but this foundation is my no. 1 fave. It does not look like i am wearing foundation when i have this on... just like i have perfect skin. I've tried em all from Dior and Guerlain to MAC to cover girl, and I never even had an interest in BB's foundations because I don't like how they are all yellow based. Well my NW 20 skin was matched perfectly to 'warm beige' and the shade somehow works quite well. It does cancel out my redness which is the reason i wear foundation, my redness! But the formula is what got me. I bought this last winter and, always looking for the next best thing, tried like 5 more foundations in the meantime (yes, I have a problem haha). When I recently revisited this, every problem I had w every other foundation was none existent. I can apply a HEAVY face w this and it never ever looks Cakey. Or, it can be more of a medium coverage. It has the EXACT right oil control/moisture balance for my particular skin. It's been oily lately so I've been using murads oil control mattifier SPF 15 as my day cream and its helped a ton: I tried the Immaculate foundation and it actually dried my skin out in flakes! This seems to control oil and moisturize my dry areas. Its intuitive (jk). MAC pro longwear is another foundation repurchase that's a close 2nd to this but there's just that glow I get from BB that MAC doesn't give me. I do however use the pro longwear concealer in nw20 on my dark circles. I like to apply this w a damp beauty blender the best. I apply my makeup in the am and it stays on til 9 pm. Key words: stays on. I will repurchase this forever. Now, what to do with my other 25 foundations... (Ha!!)
I don't get all the hatin'... If you're curious about it try a sample! Maybe it will become your HG foundation too!
I decided to try out a long lasting foundation since I am in school from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m, and don't get home until about 9 p.m.
So I can say applying this foundation can be a pain. I have tried Sephora's airbrush concealer brush, the airbrush precision foundation brush, and both casued way too much streaking due to the fact the Bobbo Brown foundation is extremely thick.
The best method I have used to have a perfect finish with the foundation is with clean fingers, dot the foundation on my face, and slightly blend it out, and the with my beautyt blendy blend it out completly in bounching motion only! don't slide it! Do it as if you are patting your face!
This is the only foundation that has ever been true to my skin color, omg it is beautifuly matched to my neck. Looks VERY NATURAL!
So I have very oily skin, so regardless of what foundation I use, I procduce oil, All i do is blot and the foundation sticks well to the skin, so it doesn't fade or rub off at all during the day.
This does not feel heavy on my skin at all, and like I mentioned before is the perfect shade, I am in natural tan 4.2. I was skeptical because it sounded too dark, but the yellow undertone is perfect.
The only thing that I am worried about is that it is causing small bumps throughout my face, which I think may be due to the Lavender in the product.
I will finish my bottle, and as much as I love it,it is pricey and has been reacting with small breakouts on my skin :(
I really like this foundation. Once you get into your 40s it can be really difficult to find a foundation that don’t show up the lines. I have some wrinkles but I still can get an oily Tzone, but this seems to balance it all out. I dont understand why this has had some bad reviews. I love everything about it, it looks natural, it covers very well, it makes your skin look alive and clearer, not a dried out dead mess. I would defiantly purchase this again. I was previously using MAC Studio Fix in NC37 and now using the Bobby Brown in Warm Natural. I still love Mac too but I think every now and again you need to switch because I think your skin gets used to it and seems to get lazy and not work so well.
Okay well first of all the texture of this foundation is pretty good. Its not to thick or to runny. This foundation has a very annoying smell. it has a overwhelming lavender smell that gives me a headache. Some people might like the smell but personally i like foundation to smell clean not like cheap perfume. If you have dry skin this foundation would be better for you, but if your skin leans more onto the oily side like me be ready to have it slide of your skin within a hour or two! This foundation has a wide variety of color choices so that is a plus but thats about it. I mean there are worse foundations out there but this one definitely isn't good in my opinion. Its relatively easy to blend and looks pretty good on skin at first. This foundation is not worth the price at all.
What a beautiful foundation!! Wear it with BB concealer and powder and u will look amazing. I got so many compliments when I wore it! This is so much better than my Mac studio fix fluid. Great 'day time foundation' It's SO natural looking :) Just HATE how pricey it is in Australia.
The colors are too pink in my opinion. I found Revlon Colorstay to be similar, but way better. Not satisfied with the Bobbi Brown foundation.
This foundation is really awful. I tried it for 1 week. It looked ok when I first applied it, the colour match was excellent (beige - I am NC25-30) and I liked the yellow tone. The coverage was ok but some redness and hyperpigmentation was still visible which is normally fully covered by EL Double Wear or Mac studio fix fluid foundation. Application was quite difficult as the foundation dries fast and gets sticky. The biggest issue however was that it disappeared (unevenly) after about 5 hours which was really embarrassing at work. Another thing that I don't like is the pungent lavender smell. That said, I also purchased the Bobbi Brown skin perfecting Retouching Powder in Yellow to use with this foundation and it stinks really bad, like paint almost and did not work any better than a translucent powder. These products were really expensive and my first BB purchases ever which have left a bad impression on the brand for me, wont be buying any more BB products.
I don't hate BB but Ive never really LOVED a product by her. (other than the gel liner ofc) its sooo yellow toned and I'm Asian and it was still too yellow for me. Its a below average foundation and it was just an impulse buy...
Let's start with the good...excellent color match, as always. Bobbi's foundations cannot be beat for color, and that's the only reason why I'm giving this two stars. I'm not a fan of this formulation. It's too dewy, and I can feel it sitting on my skin. It makes me very oily, and I don't like the finish. I really dislike the lavender scent, too -- foundation doesn't need to smell. For the first time in over ten years, I tried Tarte's Amazonian Clay 12-hour full coverage foundation, which has the finish and look this Bobbi product wishes it had. Too bad I couldn't get a good color match in it. After trying all sorts of other stuff, have migrated to Bobbi's Skin Foundation.
Disappointing. No oil control at all, in fact, it made my skin oiler than usual. sinks into my skin very fast.
edit: ARGH, realised its too yellow toned. I'm Asian, yet this makes me look sick!!
