Bobbi Brown’s Skin Foundation Stick is the latest edition to their lineup of foundations. This is a reformulation of the older foundation stick in the Bobbi Brown line. It retails for $44.00 and contains .31 oz. The Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick comes in a variety of 24 shades and it is available now at Bobbi Brown counters and online.
While I find the idea of a stick foundation fascinating, I have not found one I can use. The two I have tried, Benefit’s Playsticks and Maybeline’s Fit Me did NOT work for me. I did test Bobbi Brown’s older version of their stick foundation a few times and while I enjoyed it I never purchased it. Enter Bobbi Brown’s Skin Foundation Stick, which is my first foray into Bobbi Brown’s line if foundations.
Bobbi Brown’s Skin Foundation Stick is the latest in their line of foundations. It is touted as long wearing and appropriate for all skin types. The Skin Foundation Stick is formulated with emollients like olive extracts and shea butter. It contains light diffusing powders and oil-controlling minerals. What does that mean you ask? Bobbi Brown’s Skin Foundation stick claims to not only keep your skin moisturized while providing you coverage and keep the oilies at bay. Sounds like a wonder product?!?!?
Bobbi Brown’s Skin Foundation Stick really is one of those products that lives up to the hype surrounding the product. This is an AMAZING foundation for me. Using this foundation is simple and quick. The Skin Foundation Stick blends effortlessly into my skin and it really does provide long wearing, fabulous results. You just simply swipe this on your forehead, down your nose, on your cheeks and chin. Blend with your preferred method of blending and set it with powder if you are super oily. When paired with a primer it wore for well over sixteen hours with some wear on my nose which is the oiliest spot on my nose. On its own it wore for eight hours with some wear on the nose and chin.
The look of the Skin Foundation Stick really does mimic skin. When I tell people I am wearing foundation, they are shocked! It is light on the skin and I cannot even tell I am wearing it. The coverage Skin Foundation Stick provides is medium but it can be built up to a fuller coverage without appearing cakey. You can also use this to spot correct as opposed to using it all over the face with the same fab results.
While I do love the Skin Foundation Stick there are some drawbacks. It was suggested by a sales associate to use my fingers to blend the product because the “warms” of my skin will warm the product allowing me to blend it seamlessly. I found when using my fingers I was taking more product off my face rather than blending. While I normally do not apply foundation with my fingers one of the big draws for me was that I could use my fingers to spot blend when using this just to color correct as opposed to an over face foundation. I also think it is rather pricey for the size but Bobbi Brown is a higher end line and this foundation is priced evenly with others in the line.
Overall, this has become my go to everyday foundation. I love that it is easy to use and provides natural results that can fool even a trained eye. While Bobbi Brown’s Skin Foundation Stick is pricey, it is as close to skin as one can get from a consumer friendly product. And the shade selection is on point. Just a note that the smaller Face Touch Up Stick is not the same formula as the Skin Foundation Stick.
