Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick Review|Swatches

Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick £28.00*

'Bobbi's innovative Foundation Stick is designed for portability and adjustable coverage. Easy to apply and blend all over the face or just where you need it. For all skin types, except very oily.
This is the first foundation I've seen in a stick form since the Kryolan Paint Stick's, there is probably more on the market but I was actually drawn to the Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick. Coverage on foundation sticks are medium to full due to the texture which also means if you have combo skin like mine it is more likely to cling to your drier areas.'

This foundation is Dermatolodically tested and contains 3 main ingredients:
Squalene - A fatty acid that helps the skin retain moisture.
Silica - Helps control oil and reduce shine.
Beeswax - Provides lubricity and slip for ease of application.

I didn't experience no problems with the Kryolan sticks so it was good to see how the Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick would be plus this was my first time trying a Bobbi Brown Foundation. I used this foundation by applying directly to my face and then used Real Techniques Buffing Brush to blend out flawlessly. The best way I find to tackle foundations from sticking to imperfections and dry skin is to moisturise and prime and apply my foundation straight away before allowing them to settle in.

Overall the coverage of this foundation is medium and very easily buildable you apply/blend using a sponge or with a brush, I personally prefer using a brush. The foundation is mega creamy so goes on like a cream blends very easily, I totally agree with Bobbi Brown where they stated 'apply lightly'. The staying power is very impressive and lasts longer than most liquid foundations. I enjoy using this foundation and whats great is that this comes in 20 different shades and the shades are a lot easier to work out than Kryolan's I am MAC's NC30 - NC35 and the shade 'Natural' worked perfectly for me.

  3. I love the foundation stick, it is one of my favourite Bobbi Brown products, I will matched between two shades so I have ended up with both :-) I don't use it all the time as I don't want to run out too quickly & I have a lot of foundations stashed away to use too. Great post xx
