Really loving this. I had been using Guerlain and loved that too but wanted a change. I bought this in Sand. Applied with a sponge and get great coverage, perfect colour for me and great staying power. Even after running at the gym it looks great. No irritation. I'd definitely buy again.
This foundation is definitely not for those who have oily/acne prone skin. It's great for dry skin. the price was very expensive approx $50 but I use this for special occasions because I don't like to use foundations with spf, my skin looks weird when pictures are taken. Also, you need very little with this because the coverage is very good so it last a long time. I'm a firm believer in making the skin perfect above everything else. The color match for me is perfect because I have yellow undertones and the coverage is amazing without looking cakey. For a day time look, you can mix this with your spf moisturizer and apply it on like face lotion. Overall, the colour match, the moisturizing properties make this a definite rebuy.
Broke me out like no other! Huge white heads that Im still fading scars on! My skin hated this! It has the mositure that my skin like but the breakouts were horrible! The bottle for the price you pay for this should have a pump....no reason not to! Too bad I really wanted to like this and the color match was good!
Is too yellow. Consistencey is great. I mix it with my spf 30 lotion in the palm of my hand.
I would buy again because the shade match of BB foundations is almost unbeatable. I wear in sand or warm sand and its a seamless blend.
I like the fact that this foundation has no spf therefore no acne causing or so i thought. I must say i think this foundation was flaring my acne up a little and it wasnt until i swopped over to Lancome that i realised how oily my skin was at the ned of the day after wearing the foundation and i dont have an oliy skin type. Still, great coverage, super natural finish and shade match bang on. I will keep waiting for BB to bring out a foundation which is the same shade but is delivered in a better bottle with a more hygenic and sensible method of dispensing - and possibly has more light reflective / dewy properties.
PROS: I know "moisturizing" is in the name, but I didn't expect quite this much moisture. Well, if you want a very moist finish, this is luminous in the sense of very dewy.
CONS: Unless you're yellow-toned, the colors are all too yellow. (I'm N15, leaning to NC.) The company says all skin is yellow-based and that's why their foundations all have a yellow base. I disagree. This was a little too wet (almost oily) looking and feeling for me. Not great for my big pores.
ALTERNATES: D/S - L'oreal Visible Lift Serum Absolute Advanced Age-Reversing Makeup is pretty good for wrinkles. For H/E, I absolutely adore Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, which is the best thing for not making my wrinkles look worse, out of 35 foundations I've tried.
APPLICATION TIPS: If you're concerned about this settling in pores, you can pat L'oreal's Magic Perfecting Base into pores first (and make sure to let it "set" for at least a minute).
REMOVAL TIPS: If you are prone to clogging, you may want to remove this with a cleansing oil before using your regular cleanser..
Bought this foundation 30 minutes ago and the lady suggested i buy this over Moisture Rich and realised it was anti-aging and I'm only 21.
It made my skin feel tight and the color doesn't look quite right either.
I went from MAC to this thinking it was going to be more hydrating and more natural, it turns out I can already feel my face starting to break just after 5 mins after application. I will be returning this and swapping it for moisture rich. Worst Decision ever!
BIGGEST CON: NO SPF!
I have had a lot of problems recently with skin flare ups due to stress. My skin has been very dry, sensitive and inflamed. My sister recommended this foundation to me as it is supposed to be a super hydrating formula, as well as providing great coverage. Wrong. This foundation does not set, meaning you have to use a powder over the top, thereby emphasising dry skin. Completely defeats the object of a moisturising foundation, surely?
It has a tendency to settle into dry patches on the skin - not attractive.
It is what I call a 'volatile' foundation - it's very temperamental. It would not blend properly with a brush or a sponge, so I've found it must be patted onto the skin with your fingers, which takes forever.
Definitely NOT worth the £28 I paid for it, especially as it doesn't even have a pump.
The only thing it's good for is as an under-eye concealer, and even then, it doesn't last very long.
Thanks for nothing, Bobbi.
Bought this last month at the Bobbi Brown counter in the Providence Place Mall. I didn't own anything of BB so I talked to the MA and she recommended this to me. I was looking for a foundation that was luminesent, dewy, but provided some coverage. I don't like matte foundations so this is perfect for me. BB's color range is "right on" in my book. Since I have yellow undertones in my skin, I find that this blends perfectly! I do have one gripe though...the packaging. Typical glass bottle with a screw cap...ugghh. Hopefully they come out with a different type of bottle..one with a pump would be a godsend. All in all, I really like this foundation, and I will continue buying it :)
This is the best foundation ever. Love the finish and the coverage which can be adjusted from lighter to heavier. Real Simple magazine listed it is as the best foundation for mature skin. I have tried so many and this does not accentuate lines and wrinkles. The last one I used was Lancome's renergie lifting foundation and there is no comparison. This foundation blends in well and lasts. Of course, half the battle is to find the right color. Also, I don't use too much. It covers redness without looking cakey which was a problem that I had with the Lancome. Also, my skin is looking better. It does contain skin-improving ingredients. This foundation in Beige with the Bobbi Brown bronzer in Natural lightly applied is working for me. I think it makes me look younger. I highly recommend.
