Bobbi Brown’s Skin Foundation is worth every penny
I have to tell you I am not a foundation girl. I own only three, all of which I bought this summer, and I certainly don’t use them everyday. Most often I dust some MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Dark and keep it moving. This summer my t-zone has been the oiliest ever and I have had some breakouts, so I decided I needed something that looked like skin but did not make me oilier. I wanted something light coverage, lightweight, and buildable. I wanted something that looked like skin! And with Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation, I have definitely finally found it.
The biggest plus for me is definitely that actually does look like skin. It was love at first swatch in Sephora, and I immediate knew I had to have it. When I say it “looks like skin,” I mean that it absorbs well enough to give coverage without the foundation texture that I hate.
The second most impressive quality is its oil control abilities. Now I can’t say that this works alone to control oil, but it definitely does not add to the problem which is impressive because its a skin foundation that’s not really meant to mattify. Incorporated into my foundation routine (which includes Aquaprime, Milk of Magnesia and Finishing powder) This performs beautifully. It works especially beautifully with my MAC MSF powder to give an amazing, flawless finish. People literally stop me in Sephora all the time to ask me what I use whenever I wear this holy grail product!
The only negative is the price. On a student’s budget I would never have been able to afford this, but I have recently graduated and thus come into some money (thanks friends and family!) so I was more than excited to splurge.
This product is worth every penny and I will definitely be repurchasing. I highly recommend this in a solid foundation routine for oily girls who don’t want to look cakey. For dry skin, I imagine this performs like a dream.
Can be bought wherever Bobbi Brown cosmetics are sold. I purchased mine in-store from Sephora. With 20 shades, I am sure color matching will not be a problem for most.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed 🙂
