I bought this foundation hoping it would be a natural looking foundation that wouldn't get noticed by teachers at my private school. I got shade 0 which was a close match, albeit a touch yellow.
When I put this on it gives a heavenly glow to the skin and blurs out most imperfections. A couple hours later however and that glow turns into a greasy shine. I now use this foundation in the winter when it is dry outside and for pictures.
I love the pump and wish all foundations had one. I don't like the price, over $80 AUD. It didn't make me break out which was appreciated. I would recommend this to ladies with dry skin looking for that glow.
I bought this foundation in Beige, and just as well because it looks pale and ashy in natural daylight. It is very liquid, so you have to be careful not to drop some on your clothes. It has a very light coverage and you cannot build it up, your face would just look shiny and it would rub off everywhere. I can hardly see the difference before and after applying, I might as well use just a tinted moisturizer. This foundation is suitable for people with a good skin without any blemishes.
Still can't decide on this product! I loved the finish of it when I used my sample,it looked beautiful and dewy/satiny. But i bought it,and the BB SA wasn't there to help and I got a SA from another beauty department who helped me pick the colour(which was almost two shades lighter than the original sample the actual BB SA gave me) now that I have it,I can't seem to work it. Iv used fingers,kabuki and brush,but it picks up my dry areas(which I never thought I even HAD!) and it smears onto everything,and seems to melt off after a while. So not super impressed hey. Which is sad,cos Iv used two other BB foundies before and quite liked them. It might not be the foundation,it's prob just me, as I look for longer lasting foundations these days,due to my combo skin type. I'm sure there are others who will like it out there though!
I was recommended this by a SA at the BB counter when my foundation stick was making me a grease pan. I couldn't try it on my skin because I did not have enough time but I was told that it would give me medium coverage and a nice dewey finish. I have acne scars (brown marks) and also mole removal scars around my mouth (purplish marks). So basically I have a lot to cover, so I have no idea why the SA recommended this to me. When I first applied this, it felt extremely light (a good thing!) But as I slowly blended it, it did not cover ANYTHING, so I guess its true how its a 'skin' foundation. I would only say that this foundation would fit a normal skinned person with no imperfections and a near perfect skin tone, otherwise I don't think it would fit the bill for anyone else. It's extremely pricey too, better off investing in a tinted moisturizer tbh...Seriously disappointed in this foundation :(
I was first surprised how liquid this foundation is. Not very easy to apply.
The coverage is medium-light, you can build it up if you want.
What I really like is the color, perfect match with my skin (I bought 2.5), it makes it look really more uniform and I like that !
What I'm disappointed with is : it makes my pores appear bigger, the finish is a bit velvety and I usually prefer glowing finish, it dries my skin : after a couple of hours I feel it's unconfortable and it tends to become a bit cakey (and as a result not natural).
So I've a mixed opinion on this product. I've found other foundations that I'm much more happy with (By Terry for example). Won't buy it again for sure.
This is one of the few products I've actually used right up and gone back for more. I don't like wearing foundation but need it here and there to even my complexion. This has a great consistency and feels so light and fresh on application. It helps that BB staff (ime) have the best trained staff when it comes to colour matching. This is literally like spare liquid skin to me. Love it and will re purchase over and over.
Fantastic Foundation! I've been using it for about a week now. You can wear it with light coverage or build up to full coverage, which is what I choose to do and it STILL LOOKS NATURAL. Perfect color match for my hard-to-match light Olive Skin with slight yellow undertones. Almost completely covers my hyperpigmentation. I use a Foundation Brush, which I've never used before-it applies so smoothly and sets up relatively quickly. I use a finishing powder to set the foundation. I can't imagine switching to something else. I'm 40 and have slight fine lines around my eyes, but this makeup helps to dimish those. I also have oily skin but I like the semi dewy finish as it is youthful and "realistic" looking. I am super happy with Bobbi Brown Skin.
Wow, this foundation is EXACTLY what I never thought I needed. Now that I have found it and worn it, I know that this is all I need- And what I mean by that, is, I never knew if I needed a tinted moisturizer, or a medium-coverage, etc... This foundation, Bobbi Brown Skin, is like the most perfect, almost sheer, very thin formula... But here's the thing- Being as thin as it was, it was pigmented enough to do an AMAZING JOB of toning OUT all of my redness and make my complexion look snooth, even, and flawless! I'm not one to struggle with acne, tho (thanks, High School Accutane)! My only real issues are the un-even skin tone, redness, a few broken capillaries, and small flaws. But when I look at my face, fully finished, it does not look thick, or cakey, or heavy. It looks like my OWN skin- sheer, fine, and just.... PERFECTED!!! I love this stuff forever. I dare say it is better than Giorgio Armani LSF! My skin is dry, but this makes my skin feel soft and dewy!
This was a great foundation, if you have good skin and yellow undertones, UNTIL HD came out. Now I use Smashbox HD and there is no comparision. The Skin foundation, while lighter in look then most, looks so much more like makeup then the HD. I like Smashbox as I have dry skin, if you have oily I think MUFE is best. These HD foundations truly look like you have nothing on, they just will not sit in any lines. So Bobbi Brown just is not moving forward. One other thing: I always used her foundations and the SA's convinced me I was yellow toned as that is all they have, but I took the foundation test at Smashbox.com and came up with a neutral. Light 2, and it looks so much better. Another point with Bobbi Brown, she is convinced we all should have yellow skin. When this came out it was great, but technology has improved beyond it.
I use natural 4.25, i'm so glad she finally made a color between natural and natural tan...b/c i fall in between those two...formula is very sheer. i do need to touch up a couple of spots w/concealer but i don't mind. i like how sheer it is.
