Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation SPF15 Review & FOTD

As you know I picked up a sample of this new "skin foundaion" by Bobbi Brown when purchasing my usual which is "moisture rich". I eventually got round to trying it today and have to say that I actually like it, the name is fit for the effect it gives. It actually feels like skin and gives a slight glow to the skin whilst looking matt. It's very light in texture and doesn't feel like your wearing anything at all, or look like it. I am in the shade "natural", they have a very good variety of colours.



In the photo below you can see the natural glow it gives, this was taken without flash. The texture of this is quite runny but not so much that it drips, it's very smooth and light. I applied it with Cliniques foundation brush, which was perfect. I will definately be buying this in the full size for summer as I think it would be perfect!! It also has SPF15 which is a must, after seeing girls like Coleen Rooney age 22 with crows feet, I mean come on! I dont usually wear foundation unless my skin is feeling dull. However, I don't wear sunscreen as it breaks me out, so this is perfect as it goes over the moisturiser. I have to say I have used and still do use at times, the luminizing foundation and tinted moisturiser by Bobbi Brown, all of which are fab. Try at least one of them because it just looks so pretty on.




Here you can see the full effect.





Here's my face of the day too. I'm wearing Nars Laguna bronzer to contour. I have some of the skin foundation on my lips with Mac oak lip liner. On my eyes I am wearing, Mac Woodwinked all over the lid and blended into the crease. I used Femme Fi to highlight, and I am wearing Humid on the lower lash line which is slightly blended into the crease. I am also wearng Max Factor false lash effect mascara.
No blusher, no lipstick or gloss, and no liner :(

@SS I'm trying to get round to taking fotos of all of them, might to a seperate blog for it. I wish there was a way of putting paypal on the blog. If all else fails I will have a shop on etsy or misi.. I need to order the packaging for the jewellery, come to think of it I need to do it tonight! Thanks for the nudge :)

bubblegarm said...

@Hele you must try at least one of them, u wont regret it!!!

Hele said...

Which do you think is the best?

bubblegarm said...

If you have dry skin get the moisture rich, if you have dry and dull skin get the luminizing one, if you have good skin but want to even it out then get the skin foundation or tinted moisturiser. The colours on all are buildable, I usually do one coat then stipple some on the areas that need it. Swatch them on your hand on the counter or ask for samples to try them out.

Yesterday when I ask you if you tried the samples was because of that… I never try any Bobby Brown before; I’m really impressed with this new one. I think is my new favourite foundation, I was today, again in BB, 3 times this week, to pick a sample. I think I’m a new big fan of BB :))
That with my new eye brightener are amazing, I’m very, very impressed.

bobbi brown's foundation is lovely especially ths skin one,ive been using it for three months now..it is definitely LOVE!! (i personally think it looks better on you than the BB moisturizing foundation, it gives just the right amount of glow to your complexion, beautiful!) u mentioned that u have BB tinted moisturizer, i was thinking of trying that one, but which one would u suggest, the spf15 one in the black tube or the tinted moisturizing balm spf 25 in the jar???? let me know. thanks :)

bubblegarm said...

@Aleksis thank u, u should try it. :)

bubblegarm said...

@anonymous glad to hear u love the skin one :) I definately agree with u, this one is better than the moisture rich if u want a subtle glow. I usually use the moisture rich on days when my skin is v dry. I have the tinted spf15 inthe black tube, the balm felt to oily. Thanks for commenting. X

thank you thank you! im gonna get the tinted moisturizer now :) I heart BB! xx

bubblegarm said...

I heart BB too :)

if you want sun protection you need to be using more than spf15, use at least spf 50

Anonymous said...

@ the other anonymous: yes, but no sirree i dont need the sun protection, i just want an alternative to foundation, you know on days when u dont feel like putting anything on.. if u knw what i mean.
p.s. i dont really need sun protection, im asian, my skin is built for the sun ;) (its in the genes)

bubblegarm said...

SPF 15 is better than nothing. :) I'm have olive toned skin an have never used more than spf30 on my face, maybe I should use spf50 around my area?

I think your face looks absolutely gorgoues!! Im going to be purchasing the Natural long lasting foundation by bobbi brown but I wonder how my skin would look like.. Have you tried it? I might just use little concealor to cover up a blemish or two, but I wanted a foundation to give me that nice healthy, radiant - blemish free - natural look. What do you think?
