I bought this looking for a light coverage foundation I could build to medium which could be used on days I wanted something light on my skin but lasting. The first few times I used it were weekends. Fine for a day afternoon doing casual stuff but I only had it on for a few hours.
I then tried it for a full day at work in an office. This is where it really let me down. It rubbed off, it went shiny and it oxidises. It's so so runny and I apply with a brush. I need quite a few pumps to get enough for my face.
I feel bad for giving it a low score as the coverage is upfront as sheer light and doesn't pretend to be anything else. I shouldn't really rate it down for that. It does say long lasting though, and it's not so I'm rating it down for its staying power, shine and for oxidising. I'll keep it for weekends and shorter spells with make up.

Bobbi Brown is a life saver for me. I have a surprisingly difficult skin tone and have been difficult to match. Most makeup counters and artists choose far too pink/neutral foundations that ultimately make me look like I am wearing a mask. On the other spectrum, too yellow of foundations leave me looking sickly. Needless to say I have neutral skin, with warm/peach undertones. Bobbi Brow's skin foundation in #3 Beige is the perfect color match for my summer skin and #2 is perfect for my winter color (at least with their stick foundation, which I have used a loved, it just didn't last very long).

This foundation holds well on combination skin (oily T-zone and normal to dry cheeks) and doesn't leave the drier areas looking patchy. I set my t-zone with a powder and do have to touch up/dab mid-day. I would say this foundation is light (maybe medium-ish) coverage but I have not been able to build it very well for more coverage. It has a lovely natural finish. I have applied with with hands, beauty blender, and a stippling brush and by far the best application and coverage comes from the brush.

Highly recommend! I will be repurchasing in the lighter shade in preparation for winter. So happy I gave this a shot.

I'm really disappointed to be writing this review, because I loved this product so much in-store. It matches my skin tone perfectly and it has a nice coverage that seems very buildable. I balked at the price, but I figured that if it was a good foundation it would be worthwhile. What I found, however, was that it had virtually no staying power, and even the slightest smudge was enough to take off a glob of makeup. Even with setting spray AND primer I have to be extremely careful about not touching my face. Sadly, I think I'll be returning this product, since $60 CAD is awfully pricey for a foundation that needs a lot of extra help to stay on.

I love the super liquid texture and the medium coverage of this foundation, so easy to put on and blend! Looks super smooth, natural and slightly dewy.
Unfortunately, I couldn't make this work with my skin. It sits on top and moves all over the face even with setting powder. I had some breakouts each time I was trying to use it. It transfers everywhere.
SPF 15 isn't sufficient by any means and I'm not sure why it is there. It gives light flashback on pictures (your skin will look two shades lighter than it is). I also find that it oxidizes a bit through the day.
Doesn't worth the money.

This foundation is supposed to be for normal to oily skin. I have combination with an oily T-zone.
Within an hour of application and setting i look like a greaseball. I always have to bake with this foundation and even then i have to blot and re-powder many times a day..very annoying because of the price.

Besides that..it has a watery texture and feels very light on the skin. The finish looks perfect.indeed like skin.

I think for people with normal to dry skin..this foundation would be great...just not for me...

This has got to be the single worst non-drugstore foundation I have ever tried. Not only did I get home to discover the so called 'Beige' shade (the coolest tone they seemed to carry) I was matched to was too yellow for me under natural light but worse was to come.
The texture of this foundation is SO runny that by the afternoon of the first day I wore it it had literally ran off my forehead and was pooling in my eyebrows and around the bottom of my chin. I have dry skin (in fact the saleslady specifically recommended this foundation for dry skin, I guess because for normal or oilier its a complete greaseball disaster) and have never experienced this before with any other foundation whether low or high end. And yes, I did use a primer.
Even though I only ever wore it once, I kept finding traces of this foundation everywhere - my clothes, my towels, even my phone. Yuck!

It is a great foundation for mixed/oily skin. It will give you natural look without mask effect. The look is semi matte with healthy luminosity (definitely not too much glow, just a healthy natural look). I have lately tested Guerlain, Chanel, Lancome and Dior foundation. Bobbi's Skin Foundation beats them all.

This is perfect for my skin. I have dry/combination skin. I'm 32 so I have a few wrinkles and some signs of aging. I love this foundation because it feels like you have nothing on at all and has medium coverage and is totally buildable. It's nice and dewy, not oily at all or too shiny just healthy looking and I never have any flaky spots where I would normally in the past. Get a nice foundation brush I use Sephora's 99 I believe foundation brush. It's nice and dense so the product doesn't sink in and stays on top. Anyway it's totally worth it to have a good brush and this foundation deserves it. Then I'll tap my face a little after a few minutes or use a blender to tap it. Anyway I've tried so many foundations and this one changed my life.

I have been using this foundation for at least 10 yrs. For some reason lately I have been on a make up buying spree like a zombie apocalypse is about to happen and I will need to have a full face of make up on at all times to survive. Anyways I have probably purchased 10 to 12 different foundations in the last 6 months, all prestige brands for the most part. After trying several different ones, and liking some of them a lot, I still find myself reaching for this one the most. I suspect it is because I know exactly how this one is going to perform under all conditions. For me personally, this is a light to medium coverage foundation and the color match is perfect. I can apply it with my fingers when I am in a hurry, or a beauty blender when I want a more flawless look. It always looks natural on me with either application, my skin just better. I have skin that is on the dry, dehydrated side because I use retinols and acids regularly, but I can get a little oily in my t-zone, especially in the summer. I like the dewy finish I get with this foundation, and I found if I use a primer (I like Becca's new purple one or their backlight one) I get very little transfer. Hope this review helps if you are thinking about trying this foundation.

I'm surprised that this is rated so low! I've tried a lot of foundations from both the same price range and some drugstore ones, but I find myself constantly revisiting this product. It is definitely a lot sheerer than most, but if you're into a more natural, slightly dewy finish, then this is perfect. What I like about it is how perfectly it matches my skin tone (I'm a warm sand), and how it gives me the right amount of coverage, making my skin look even. It's super natural so it ends up looking more like a flawless version of my face, instead of thick and overly made-up. The texture is a little watery so application can get tricky, but once you get it on, it really melts into the skin.

I'm usually a ratings sucker, so I can't understand the low stars on this one! I guess you really have to try things out for yourself and see what works!
