Bobbi Brown is pretty infamous as a bougie brand – although her products are raved about, her prices aren’t exactly what I would call consumer friendly. And in this post we’ll be discussing whether the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick is splurge-worthy.
WHAT BOBBI BROWN CLAIMS
What it is:
A foundation stick designed to look and feel like skin that’s formulated with skintone correcting pigments for the most natural-looking finish.
What it does:
A Bobbi Brown original, this innovative formula features Smart Technology for targeted moisturization or oil control, depending on what skin needs. It delivers medium-to-full coverage, and it comes in a convenient swivel-up stick for at home and on-the-go application. From its creamy yet lightweight texture to its water, sweat, and humidity-resistant wear, Skin Foundation Stick is a cult-favorite that’s available in an array of shades to match 30 skintones.
The weightless formulas blends seamlessly into skin for coverage that looks like skin, not makeup. Formulated with a blend of emollients—like olive extract and shea butter—the formula moisturizes wherever skin is dry. Light-diffusing powders and oil-controlling ingredients perfect the appearance of skin while offering targeted shine control.
WHAT PEOPLE REALLY THINK
A lot of people agree that the finish is definitely skin-like. The foundation goes on seamlessly and blends like a dream. The shade range is pretty decent, although some people struggle to find their perfect match. Shades that would normally be their perfect colour ended up being lighter for some.
And while everybody agreed on the finish of the foundation, a lot was said about who it worked for. Most consumers complained that the foundation did not work for combination/oily skin types, even though the brand claims that it is ideal for everybody. The foundation started to separate after almost 4 hours of wear, leaving the wearer shiny, and rather uncomfortable. So, it’s definitely not long lasting.
Some were also quick to point out that the Bobbi Brown foundation doesn’t sit well with any kind of textured skin, even though people with mature skin admitted that the stick worked wonders with them.
So I guess the bottom line is, if you have near-perfect normal skin and tons of money, go nuts. Otherwise you’re probably better off saving a buck or two.
