Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick
First time I ever tried this make up and I love it !!! Will definitely buy this again :)
Worth every penny. Very good coverage, high quality.
Foundation that MINIMIZES THE LOOK OF WRINKLES
I have read that creams and serums that minimize the look of wrinkles do so with an ingredient that causes a reflection away from the crevice of the wrinkles, minimizing the shadow. It is the shadow in the wrinkles that make them noticeable. Well, this foundation seems to have the same effect. It has a beautiful way of minimizing the look of fine wrinkles, specifically around the eye area and upper lip. It is so light and reflective that it gives a very smooth, youthful look and feel. I am 63 years and get SO many compliments on my skin. I LOVE this product.
Combo To Dry Skin- Works Great
I am in my mid-50's and I don't think this product would have worked when my skin was more on the oily side. My skin is now normal to dry. I bought my first stick of this foundation 6 months ago and am ready to order another. During my first stick, I'd occasionally go back and try my old foundations - Estée Lauder and Neutrogena. After comparing, the Bobbi Brown foundation came out on top. I apply the stick foundation with a cosmetic sponge and it blends beautifully with a smooth coverage. I'm blonde with fair skin and have found Sand to be a perfect shade.
Wanted to love it
I love Bobbi Brown and have for years and I wanted to love this foundation but it is just ok for me. I like the convenience of the stick but it does not blend. I have to rub really hard to get it to blend in! I was expecting it to be silky and creamy but the product I is not. The color is a perfect match and it does give nice coverage once I get it on. I have tried it with primer, without primer, directly after moisturizer etc. and nothing seems to make a difference. I will continue to buy Bobbi Brown products but I won't be purchasing this one again.
This is really good makeup, good coverage, not heavy, natural looking only better. If you want to know how good your skin can look, try this product. Thanks Bobbi, this is my makeup now.....
There were neither nothing special nor exemplary about this foundation. It wore and appeared on my face no better or no less than really expensive or inexpensive foundations I have tried. For the price tag, if I am going to pay this much and I can get the same results from something that costs 75% less, guess which direction I'm going.
I love this foundation stick because the porcelain is perfect as my shade. A little goes a long way. It's smooth, luxurious and easy to use. There is no waste because you're using a stick. I use this with Bobbi Brown's corrector and concealer along with many other Bobbi Brown products . It's a must have!
Must have for Normal Skin
I used this off an on since my 20's I have tried other foundations - cheaper versions, liquid ,mineral powders but I always return to this one. Bobbi Brown has the best natural tones for me I am a warm sand 43yrs old with no visable wrinkles.The key is to find the right formula for you this is best for normal skin. I like that it last forever my is 8 months old and still have 1/4 of it left. I like to use on the areas that need correcting nose, upper lip, check area. I use one small swipe on each and blend with foundation brush and use sunscreen over it . I wrote this review because there were unfair comments about this product. If you see Bobbi Brown on air or her make up videos on her site she does not recommend this formula for oily skin,dry or older skin who needs more moisture. Also Bobbi has excellent formulas with sunscreen but I like higher SPF
I have been using the foundation stick for a couple of months now. It took me a little bit to figure out how it works best for me. It could be applied heavy by drawing lines on your face then blending with a brush. I just dip the brush on the stick and apply it on my face where I need the coverage. It goes on smoothly and does not look cakey at all. My skin is combination but does tend towards being dry. The foundation stays on all day and I have a great color match with Beige.
I really wanted to like this foundation due to the ease and portability of it, but it just didn't do it for me. I tried it without a primer. Yuck. I tried it with a primer. Not much better. Goes on blotchy and patchy, and settles into lines around the eyes. I even applied it right after my moisturizer. I guess I need a foundation that's more moisturizing. I'll keep on looking.
TOO HEAVY FOR ME
Love the concept of this foundation. However, do not recommend it for someone who has lines & wrinkles bkz it's just too creamy which means it slides into those places & just makes them show up all the more. Not a good look. In addition, the coverage is much too heavy for an older woman. I tried the two lightest shades as I am extremely fair.
