A Lightweight, Perfecting Daytime Foundation
Bobbi Brown has become one of my favorite brands thanks to her eyeshadow palettes and creamy liners. I've raved about the Rich Chocolate Eye Palette multiple time here on TIN and I recently found a new favorite product! The Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation SPF 15 ($45) is no newbie to the beauty world and is loved by multiple celebrities including the Duchess of Cambridge herself, Kate Middleton. The Duchess used this exact foundation on the day of the royal wedding where she looked flawless and glowing (probably because of the Skin foundation!). My mom is another fan of the base and generously gave me her half-used bottle to try out and test. I've got the shade 4 Natural, which is a near perfect match for my yellow tinged neck and chest. The product is housed in a glass bottle like all of Bobbi's foundations and looks gorgeous on display. My first impression of the foundation was that it's a very thin, runny texture. The texture was a bit off-putting and misled me to believe that it would provide me with little to no coverage. Boy, was I wrong. The foundation is a good medium-buildable foundation and the lightweight texture feels like absolutely nothing on the skin. It melts into the skin and looks and feels weightless. The foundation is very long lasting- it lasts on my oily skin for around 6.5 hours before touchups are needed. As my first foundation from the brand, it exceeded all of my expectations and I can't wait to try out more of Bobbi's products!
