Finding My Holy Grail Foundation with Bobbi Brown


When it comes to Bobbi Brown products, I've always been a bit of a fan - recently however I started using a product of their's which has made me a complete Bobbi Brown convert. I've found my favourite foundation ever! Keep on reading to find out more.

I've gone off the primer bandwagon for the time being, but that doesn't mean I still can't find a use for this product. While it is marketed to double as a primer, it is also a moisturiser which is what I've been using it for. I find the formula interesting - it feels quite thick and hydrating, like something I would use as a night moisturiser and yet when it dries it sinks nicely into the skin and does leave a more matte finish than your typical moisturiser. I've been trying to cut back on wearing foundation to work everyday and this is a great option for me for those days to give my skin a matte, less oily look. I also love the scent of this product and while it seems quite strong in the tub and when you first apply the product, the smell does subside.

I've found my favourite foundation of all time (at least for the time being that is)! I was first impressed with how well this settled into my skin upon application - it took no time at all to look flawless and stayed that way as I applied the rest of my makeup. The thing that really sold it for me though was how it looked when I checked in the mirror after spending all day at work - it was still all in place! While I had a little bit of shine coming through (nothing is ever going to completely stop that) it hadn't separated around my forehead, chin or nose where foundation usually does and it still looked completely on point - I was shook! I didn't even need to use much of the product to get myself a good coverage and this is a great buildable foundation, so you can go a little lighter some days or go full glam if you're feeling it. Seriously go out and get yourself a sample and try this for yourself!

I don't usually like to end things on a negative note but we're going to have to this time around. This is the only product in the Bobbi Brown range that I've tried that I haven't gotten along with and just can't get on board the hype with. Maybe it's because I don't have any major dark circles or blemishes that I'm trying to correct on a daily basis, but I find this concealer way to thick and full on for my liking. While sometimes I don't mind caking the makeup on a little harder for a night out, I find this concealer so thick that it's quite hard to work with, and when I use it under my eyes it leaves them looking instantly cakey. I know so many people who have sworn by this concealer but I just can't keep on board this boat this time.
