Review of all my Bobbi Brown Foundations
I've been into Bobbi Brown foundations lately, so I decided I should post about one of my favourite foundation brands, Bobbi Brown!
Bobbi has always said that beauty starts with good skin, and I totally agree. You can never achieve a flawless look if you've got cakey foundation underneath, or a foundation too pale or too dark. I think a shade match really helps with how often I reach for it.
My first Bobbi Brown foundation was the Intensive Skin Serum Foundation. When I started using it for the first time, I immediately wondered why I never tried it. It’s got a very natural finish, perfect for those without much skin concerns. The finish is lovely, very natural and there are so many shades you can never go wrong. This is quite different than other serum foundations. While other brand's serum foundations has an oil-like texture, this one actually feels like a liquid foundation. However it gives the same natural and soft brushed finish.
Since my first Bobbi foundation was such a favourite in my routine, I decided to also buy the newly launched Skin Long Wear Weightless foundation.
I have tried it for a week, and let me say I am impressed! I have come to a decision that Bobbi makes one of the best foundation ranges ever, (others in my list are Chanel and Armani). Very suitable for humid places, since it helps reduce oil and is long-wearing. Perfect for me, who works in the office from 8 to 6. It’s got a large shade range, so you will prolly find a shade match. One other thing that makes me like buying stuff from Bobbi is that all their foundation shades are named the same in all formula. I don’t need to worry about getting a shade too light or too dark, cause I know I’ll just buy the shade Sand. Very convenient for buying online. These small things do make a difference!
So after the success with the two liquid Foundations, I decided to order two more of their foundations in compacts. This one is the Skin Long Wear Weightless Compact Foundation SPF 30+++. First of all, this is a very high coverage foundation. Almost concealer-like. Best applied with a foundation brush. Dip the brush into the cream, and dab onto spots you want to cover. I don’t use this on a daily basis, only when I need extra coverage.
Next, the Skin Weightless foundation Full Cover Cushion. Oh god Bobbi keeps coming out with products named so similar, I’m starting to mix them up. This one is Bobbi’s version of a Cushion foundation. I gotta say, nothing revolutionary about this. The price isn’t really worth the amount of product you’re getting. If you want a cushion, get a Korean brand one. I think Bobbi makes better liquid/cream foundations.
All the same, It's a nice cushion, just that you can get one cheaper from other brands.
Oh did I mention that all Bobbi's compacts are refillable? The compacts are the refills are sold separately, and the refill process is super easy.
Next, the Bobbi Brown Stick Foundation. This has got to be the product that sparked the Stick foundation hyp, and is still Bobbi's best seller. I tried it last week, and it was flawless. It had a pretty high coverage, creamy, was super easy to blend, and doesn’t leave me looking cakey to all. It sets flawlessly, giving me that super healthy skin look. Very recommend this to anyone looking for a full coverage foundation.
The Full Cover Foundation brush: The best foundation brush I’ve ever used! Before this, I use the Hourglass vanish foundation brush, until this came along. It spreads out foundation so evenly, and doesn’t waste product. Hasn’t shed since I've owned it either! If you’re looking for a foundation brush, give this Full Coverage Brush a chance.
Speaking of Foundations, here the Full Cover Concealer! These are a new formula with high pigmentation and rare ingredients like dates and to help soothe the eye area. These are perfect for covering panda eyes or other areas like pimples. There are 13 shades available in Thailand, and are perfect for Asian skin like ours.
And finally, my most recent acquisition was the Bobbi Brown Powder Brush. The brushes are soft but pick up powder well. It's got a very long handle (longer than what I have in my collection). To be hones, this hasn't been a WOW for me, I still like Japanese brushes better.
So that's it. My Bobbi foundations and tools. Any of you using these? Also stay tuned for my next post on all of Bobbi's base products, including the new Radiance Glow collection!
