MSBB a.k.a My Skin But BetterDuring the past few months, I have mentioned over and over that I’ve been battling an onslaught of breakouts from an oil cleanser experiment gone wrong. While I haven’t been in a confident mood to take face photos of myself wearing blushes or anything that’ll show my cheeks, I’ve realized that at least I can make use of this bad skin to test base products. I’ve contemplated many times over of posting my bare face with all the battle scars but whatever, for the sake of beauty, here goes! I’ve recently been gifted a bottle of Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation* from a Bobbi Brown event I attended a few weeks ago. We had the chance to choose which of the brand’s foundations we get to take home and among all the amazing choices, I chose to go with this lightweight base that’s rumored to be Kate Middleton’s favorite Bobbi Brown foundation.
LOWDOWNSkin Foundation is oil-free and offers weightless light-medium coverage. I would say that it verges more on light but covers better than most tinted moisturizers. Coverage can be built up to medium without the cake. Absolutely no clinging to dry patches or flakies, too. It reminds me of MAC Face & Body Foundation which I’ve only sampled twice – but I feel they have the same consistency with Bobbi offering more coverage than MAC.
TEXTURE & CONSISTENCYSkin Foundation has a very thin and watery consistency. Not too watery that it drips all over, but runny enough that one pump covers almost all my face (although I use two pumps to do one full layer). As such, it blends really easily that I usually use just my fingers to apply this but I’ve also been getting good results from using the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. I’m quite amazed that such a thin consistency gives very good coverage. The Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer is much thicker, yet has lighter coverage than this.
COVERAGE & FINISHSkin Foundation can’t cover up intense acne scarring or marks, for that, additional concealer is necessary. It is able to conceal redness and minor blemishes if built up though, usually two full layers. The finish is a beautiful natural-looking satin that truly looks like skin. Even when built up, there is absolutely no sign of caking. Did I mention I noticed minimized pores when I wear this even when I skip on primer? Yup.
WEARWithout any primer or powder on top, Skin Foundation lasted well over 5 hours before noticeable sliding off on my T-zone. When I set the foundation with loose powder, it ploughed through 8 full hours with me. I did have to blot twice on my forehead in between those 8 hours, though, so I suggest wearing an oil-controlling primer underneath.
FINAL THOUGHTSBobbi Brown Skin Foundation is best for normal skin types without major acne problems but being on the combination side of the spectrum with battle scars in tow, I still found Skin Foundation to work well on me. As evidenced in the before and after photos, it concealed my redness and scars pretty well despite not being full coverage. The after photo shows two layers of the foundation sans powder so the satin, natural-looking yet polished finish is very apparent. For those that are oily-skinned, a dusting of powder is much needed to prolong wear and prevent premature-oiling up. I believe this foundation is made for those who love their natural finishes yet don’t need much covering up. If you’re a tinted moisturizer fan but feel that coverage is lacking, this is your best bet. It’s a hydrating and moisturizing base so those with dry skin would love this as well. However, if you’re looking for a higher coverage base with a more matte finish, I would recommend the other best-selling Bobbi Brown base – their Long-Wear Even Finish foundation. All in all – being a first time user of Bobbi Brown’s foundations, I’d have to say I’m impressed! I’ve been using the Skin Foundation for weeks now since I got it and I haven’t broken out from it despite wearing it all day. In times when I feel like reaching for my Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, I found myself slapping this on instead.
