I am one of those girls who want exact matching shade of foundation, nothing lighter or darker works. Bobbi Brown foundations have amazed me and I have found my dream shade there. Warm Honey blends into my skin seamlessly and looks most natural.
Shade – I have been matched to Warm Honey in Bobbi Brown Long Wear Compact Foundation. Infact I can always find warm honey in all Bobbi Brown foundations and in concealers, no matter what the formula is. That makes my life so much easier. Bobbi Brown foundations come in 22 shades that means one can find their match very easily. Also foundations have yellow undertones so these will suit Indian skintone very well.Texture & Formula – Bobbi Brown Long Wear Compact Foundation has creamy but not greasy consistency. It almost feels solid in the pan. I use my fingers to apply and blend the foundation in dabbing and sweeping motions. Despite of bring a cream foundation it doesn’t feel heavy. Formula doesn’t make my skin dry and I prefer to set it with some loose powder as my T-Zone tends to get shiny in hot weather.
Coverage – Bobbi Brown Long Wear Compact Foundation provides medium coverage that you can build up. It doesn’t look cakey whatsoever. However if you are hoping that this foundation will cover blemishes and scars completely, than you will be disappointed. A concealer is a must while concealing blemishes and marks.Staying Power – In hot humid weather & without primer Bobbi Brown Long Wear Compact Foundation doesn’t stay for more than 3 hours on me. It starts sliding off from my T-zone, however it stays intact on rest of my face. With primer in similar conditions the staying power increases by 1-2 hours. However it stays on for good 7-9 hours if worn in cooler/ air conditioned atmosphere. I was really disappointed when it crumbled on the upper lip area when I worn it for the first time.
Bobbi Brown Long Wear Compact Foundation photographs well and never looks grey. I haven’t worn any concealer in the picture below, just applied the foundation under the eyes. I am wearing Lancome Rose Sulfureuse Lipstick & Elf baked blush in Rich Rose.
If you are looking for natural finish with medium coverage do try Bobbi Brown Long Wear Compact Foundation. I liked the finish which isn’t too dewy or greasy. Girls with Oily skin will have to powder it to keep shine at bay. Also despite of being a long wear foundation and sweat proof (as per the SA) it doesn’t stay on me during hot sweaty weather. I would love to wear it during winters as it will stay on longer and wouldn’t make my skin dry or patchy. Another downside is the price Vs quantity. Quantity is low for the price one pays.
