Hey there beautiful girls! I have had a few questions about the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation stick and how it wears, photographs, etc. So, I hope to address those questions here! For those of you wondering, I am in the shade Golden because that matches the rest of my body more closely than the shade right below it (Warm Honey). I was matched at both Sephora and Nordstrom. I anticipate that once the weather changes here...I will have to go with the Warm Honey shade. As of right now, I am very sunkissed so Golden works perfect for me.
Does the foundation stick oxidize during wear? No, it doesn't. It is the same shade from application until the time I remove it.
How do you apply the foundation? I apply the foundation stick directly onto clean, dry, moisturized skin only. I then blend in the foundation with a flat top foundation brush. You can use any flat top foundation brush of your choice. I have also used it once with my hands but I much prefer using a brush to blend in the product.
Does it feel heavy on the skin being a cream foundation? Not at all! I was so surprised by the feel of it on my skin. Once it is on and blended in, I cannot even tell I am wearing foundation.
Is it your favorite foundation? OMGosh, yes! I have not worn any foundation more than I have worn this one since discovering it.
Is the color range friendly for women of color? I personally believe Bobbi Brown definitely tried their best to incorporate a wide range of shades for women of color. I am very pleased with the shade selection...from Alabaster all the way to Espresso they have us covered.
Does it work on your oily/combination skin? Yes, it works perfectly because I know exactly what to do to make it last on my skin. I first prime with Benefit Porefessional on the sides of nose where I have the largest pores (IMO). I then use the Ben Nye Luxury Banana Powder as a primer in my T-zone area and the other areas I tend to get oily during the day. After that has settled onto my skin, I proceed with applying the foundation. I tend not to powder after the foundation is applied. However, on the days I do powder, I lightly powder my t-zone and cheeks with the URBAN DECAY Naked Skin Ultra Definition Loose Finishing Powder.
So now to the photos that I took yesterday!
As you can see, it photographs very well both with flash and in natural direct sunlight without flash. If you are curious, I am wearing the HOURGLASS Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Empress.
I hope that this post helps answers any questions you may have had regarding this foundation! I will try and do an updated foundation routine when time permits.
Let me know if you have any additional questions that I did not address in the comments down below!
