I believe I’m not the only one out there who’s looking for the perfect foundation. Who doesn’t want a natural looking flawless complexion? Those who are born with it, hush. Don’t rub it in 😉
For me, there’s always the temptation to try different brands and strike out those that didn’t pass the test. For foundations, it’s important to remember that it is very personal as every person has different concerns. I’m in my early 30s, have sensitive combination skin with some freckles, occasional breakouts, fine lines around my eyes and dark circles.
I bought this foundation a year ago. It comes in a glass bottle with a pump dispenser.
Excerpt from bobbibrown.com:
Oil-free, all-day wear so you’ll have soft-matte, even-looking skin without having to pile on powder throughout the day, this is Bobbi’s soft-matte “sequel” to our (now discontinued) Oil-Free Finish Foundation. Sponge-like powders absorb excess oil on the surface of the skin, while emollients lock in moisture to ensure skin remains perfectly balanced. Transfer-resistant formula helps create a barrier against heat and humidity for 8 hours of wear so makeup stays in place. Perfect for oily and normal/combination skin.
This is the amount of foundation you get from 1 squirt which is just the right amount for me to cover my whole face.
The texture of the foundation is light. This is shade 02 (Sand). Even though it claims to dry matte, I find I still reach for the powder. It somehow feels complete. Habits die hard. I find it does keep skin moisturised and glowy so it’s good for combination skin. If you have very oily skin, I’d probably recommend powder foundations. Lots of good powdered mineral foundations around… which reminds me, I’ll do one on bareMinerals SPF15 foundation and its Mineral Veil soon!
