I was at Sephora the other day and I noticed that Bobbi Brown had came out with a new foundation and of course I had to buy it! I wanted to do a review on this new foundation and give you my honest thoughts on it. This foundation claims to last 16 hours and to have a lightweight matte finish. It runs at $46 which makes it a high end foundation. My expectations are higher I will not lie due to the price tag! Like I said you can find it at Sephora.
I like to make sure that before I apply any foundation I have a clean canvas and I make sure that I follow my skin care routine. I also have to apply primer before wearing any foundation. Right now my favorite primer is Makeup Forever Hydrating Primer. I have combination skin but since it has been colder my skin tends to be on the dryer side. I love applying my foundation with a damp beauty blender I just feel like coverage is a lot better when I do so. When I do decide to use a brush I like using a flat head kabuki brush.
This is my picture with no makeup on!
My first impression of the foundation is the smell is strong. The coverage is good and I would say it is full coverage but buildable. It feels lightweight and has creamy consistency. If you look closely at the pictures its a very matte foundation. The pictures below have no filters and I feel like my skin looks pretty flawless. I do set my face with the SEPHORA MicroSmooth Baked Foundation Face Powder with every single foundation that I use so I wanted to do the same thing with this new foundation. I will do a wear test as part of my final thoughts as well.
So this is me after using this foundation all day! I used it from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. which is over 12 hours. I work at an office job but I do go out and about all day and I truly feel like the foundation still looks really good. I did not touch up all day but to be honest I usually tend not to touch up my face! Overall I love the foundation I do wish the smell didn’t have that perfume smell but it’s a great long wearing foundation that I truly feel works well with my combination skin. If you are looking for a “natural” finish I would not recommend this but if you are looking for a high coverage foundation this is a good option for you. This foundation is definitely a keeper for me!
