If you’re new to Beauty IQ and not familiar with my beauty routine, I want to stress I’m not a foundation person. Yes, I absolutely appreciate the invention of foundation, and it certainly has it’s place in my makeup kit (reserved for special events), but I don’t wear foundation on a daily basis.
Who likes the feeling of having a thick layer sitting on top of their skin? Not me. But I recently tried out Bobbi Brown’s newest foundation - full coverage, might I add - and um, I actually forgot I had it on. I never thought I’d say that about a full coverage foundation, but no word of a lie, this formula is breathable, comfortable and weightless.

What You Need To Know:Bobbi Brown's ultra-silky Skin Weightless Long-Wear Foundation features a perfectly balanced blend of skin-loving ingredients, oil controlling actives and skin-true pigments. Sounds too good to be true, doesn't it?
This 16-hour wear formula has a natural-looking matte finish
It’s incredibly smooth & easily blendable for a second-skin feel
The shade range is designed to deliver natural-looking coverage for all skin tones
Lasts through even extreme heat & humidity to offer waterproof coverage
The formula won’t crease or crack & is resistant to colour change
Helps to control excess oil & shine while delivering hydration
Flexible coverage means the skin feels comfortable throughout wear
This foundation is non-comedogenic, vegan-friendly & paraben free
Pro Tip: This foundation is designed for normal to oily skin types. As I’m much more on the normal side, I chose to wear an illuminating primer underneath for an extra bit of hydration and glow, as I prefer a dewier finish to my foundation.

★★★★★ Definitely deserves 5 stars! - Gessy"I cannot put this foundation down! I have tried two other Bobbi Brown foundations and this just like the other two did not disappoint. For me, it worked well with and without a primer, the foundation stayed on all day and it didn't seperate or get cakey. I did wear two layers and still felt super light weight. I have already been recommending people to try it! I have received a lot of compliments about how natural and smooth my face looks!"
★★★★★ Sometimes I forget I'm wearing it - Mai"My skin is oily and acne-prone. I have used it for a week now and the results look so radiant and natural, but the same time matte. I can tell that the oil control does work, but it does not dry out my skin. It is medium buildable, but more on the natural looking side, which is perfect for me. The foundation is so weightless on my skin, sometimes I forget that I am wearing foundation. Overall, I recommend this foundation for anyone with combination and oily skin."
★★★★★ Highly recommend this! - Judy"I absolutely love this foundation! I've received A LOT of compliments on how flawless my makeup looks. Bobbi Brown have my shade (which is generally hard to find) and it made me look so even. It also lasts a really long time which is great! It is lightweight and matte which I need as an oily girl."
