YouTube MUA’s and beauty gurus have been talking about this foundation for a few weeks now, but I am just now catching the train.
And this foundation has my edges SNATCHED.
I first took note of the foundation when reviews from both Jackie Aina and Aysha Abdul popped up on my feed a few weeks ago. After seeing their reviews and that finish, I knew I had to get the foundation.
The Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation, which launched earlier this year, is the latest foundation from Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. The 1-oz product is claimed to have a “multidimensional matte finish” with up to 16-hour wear and buildable medium to full coverage. It also contains SPF 15 for sun protection.
Skin Type: Combination/Oily/Acne Prone
That 👏🏾 Finish 👏🏾 Though 👏🏾
The finish of the foundation really blew me away. It left my skin looking smooth and almost flawless. While this foundation probably isn’t the best for a No-Makeup Makeup Look, the foundation has a nice and unconventional naturalness to it. It is matte but not intense matte (leave the cake at home).
Blot Check ✔
I did have to blot during the day but not as much as I usually would. The foundation went great with the Urban Decay De-Slick Oil-Control Makeup Setting Spray for me to my surprise. The foundation did not emphasize shininess but instead complemented it, which you definitely do not see too much of in cosmetics products these days.
All Day Wear
The foundation definitely held up all day. I wore it for about 12 hours and saw very little difference in look between the initial application and just before removal. The foundation did seep into some fine lines and pores, but considering the great finish and oil control, I was fine with that.
If you are looking for a foundation with a gorgeous finish, better oil control without cakey-ness and long wear OR you just want to change up your makeup routine, the Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation gets and A+ from me! I will continue to wear it over the coming weeks to test it out over time.
