I tried this product in Warm Sand 2.5 and I bought it because the lady put it on me and I thought it looked good on me. I came home and looked in the mirror and I wasnt pleased. This product tinted the little whiteheads I have around my nostrils so the white heads stood out a lot and the product didn't seem to cover the pink spots(the are on the lighter side) I have on my face very well. For $45 I expect a lot more. I will be returning this tomorrow.

One of the worst BB foundations in my opinion. If you like tinted moisturiser and extremely light foundations this may be for you, however it wasnt for me. Id just like to say straight away my HG foundations are mac studio tech and EL doublewear light. This foundation was very runny, and way too sheer for me. I have some redness around my nose area and this didnt cover at all. I am also combination skin and have an oily t zone and i was an oil slick within an hour! Really not a great look! Also this foundation just kinda melted right off after half a day, because it was oily or what i dont know but not good at all. This foundation i threw right in the trash after 3 times of giving it more chances. Its the first time ive just chucked a foundation out like that but i just knew none of my friends or mum would like it. Dior Nude foundation is sooooooo much better lovely texture this is just awful xx

I'm giving this 4 lippies because it did not work for me, however if this foundation is right for your skin type, its a great foundation. My skin is very oily in the t-zone, and this just did not wear long for me, even with my powder on top. The coverage is very sheer, but does make your skin look flawless. It gives a natural semi matte finish, and makes your skin look healthy and glowing. I wish this would have worked out for me, but it just had no lasting power against my oily skin.

I received a sample of this foundation when i bought the Blemish Cover Stick.I find the texture very runny and the coverage very sheer,almost like a tinted moisturiser.Ok but not my type.

However,i am not really loving the scent.This foundation smells weird.I m ok with the Oil Free Even Finish liquid which smells nicer.

I was very impressed with this foundation. I've used many of Bobbi's products, but this is the first time I've found a foundation that is a perfect match for my skin tone. It gives me a nice, smooth finish and looks as if I just happen to have great skin. I was given a sample by a MUA and I purchased within a few days. Bobbi really has an excellent range of colors for African-American skin.

For reference: cool- to neutral toned NW10. Dry, sensitive Rosacean skin. Most foundations are either too dark/pink or are irritating or drying to my skin.
I tried a sample of this new BB foundation in the lightest shade #00 Alabaster. It's a very pale pinkish beige which matches my skintone quite well. The shades in this foundation run about one shade lighter than in some of the other BB foundations so keep this in mind while picking your shade.
The texture is a very lightweight liquid; it's easy to apply but it dries down fast so you have to work quickly. I apply with my fingers and blend with a damp sponge. The coverage is sheer to moderate; it offers more coverage than a tinted moisturizer for example but don't expect it to cover all imperfections. It does a good job evening out my ruddy cheeks while still showing some of my freckles. The finish is very natural, leaving a slightly satin finish.
However I do notice this foundation accentuates any dry, flaky patches despite having exfoliated and well moisturized skin. I would prefer a more moisturizing formula but I have to say I'm used to richer cream foundations like LM Silk Creme Foundation and Lancome Absolue Makeup. I will give it another try using a richer moisturizer and/or a primer (Clarins Instant Smooth).
One of the greatest advantages of BB Skin Foundation is the lack of fragrance. A huge yay for sensitive skins!
So far I like BB Skin enough to try it a couple of more times, experimenting with different moisturizers and/or a primer. Also it might be better wearing in summertime when my skin is less dry. At the time being I'm not sure if I would purchase a full bottle of it; I will update later on. But I still would recommend this foundation for anyone having slightly dry to slightly oily skin, esp. if you're very pale like me; there are so few foundations coming in such fair shades. Update: I tried BB Skin fndt again using a heavier moisturizer and a primer but it still accentuated any dryness; it also broke me out a bit.

I was so excited to try this foundation, and really wanted to love it, but I just can't. The SA at my local BB counter gave me sample packets in a few shades she felt would be possible matches. The application was wonderful ~ it blended so easily with buildable coverage ~ and made my skin look really nice. However, my T-zone looked like an oil slick within an hour or two, and the shade completely oxidized and became orangey on my face. So I decided to try a shade lighter, thinking that would help with the oxidation, but the same thing happened. Sadly, I will not be purchasing the Skin foundation. I'm just glad that I was able to try samples of it first. I gave it two stars for the application and the pump packaging.

I could not wait to try this after reading the reviews. Color range is great. This has pretty good coverage initially but the tzone was gone after four hours. Was disappointed to say the least. Guess I will never find anything to compare with Estee Lauder double wear!!

This is only my second day of wearing this from the sample I got at my BB counter. My shade is Warm Sand 2.5 which is what I've always bought in BB foundations and it's a perfect color (N5/NW20 for reference). I love the lightness of Skin, it gives beautiful light coverage that feels like your skin, just better! I'm pretty oily and it has held up quite well so far with minimal blotting, which I do with every foundation I use. If you have acne scarring or lots of redness this might not be the best for you since it is quite sheer but it does even out the skin tone and with MAC blot powder it provides a nice lovely base for the rest of your makeup application (blush, etc.). This is my first day to wear it at the office so we'll see how it holds up under flourescent lights. I'll edit if necessary. So far so good though.

EDIT: After 11 hours of wear it shows. My t-zone while not completely oil covered, has lost the coverage this foundation provided. It kind of just melted into my skin. A little blot powder helped but for oily skinned girls like me, this is not your HG for all day wear.

I got a sample of this few days ago. I don't write reviews very often - but couldnt' not say about this one - It gave me 5 breakouts in 2 hours! twice for the 2 days I tried it - I have never had this happen to me with any other fondations!

try before you buy!

I am 30, combination skin, and don't usually get that much breakouts to be honest - max one even if the fondation doesn't agree with me!
