Guest Post: Review: Bobbi Brown Luminous Moisturizing Foundation


Guest Post Written by Lindsay
We're all on an endless journey to discovering our favorite foundation - From one foundation fanatic to another, Lindsay of 'Lindsay C Makeup' shares with us her opinion on Bobbi Brown Luminous Moisturizing Foundation.



Bobbi Brown Luminous Moisturizing Foundation

I am a foundation addict! I can admit it. I have found many foundations I love or really like but I have yet to declare one my *Holy Grail.* So far, I have been loving my Bobbi Brown foundation.

The Bobbi Brown Luminous Moisturizing Foundation claims:
It gives skin a soft, healthy, even-toned glow as it helps reverse the visible signs of aging. Formulated with a natural collagen boosting, skin firming blend of Hexapeptides and Milk Thistle Extract. Softens fine lines and imperfections. Skin looks and feels refreshed, renewed and beautifully luminous. Offers medium-to-full coverage. For Normal to Dry Skin.

This foundation is definitely moisturizing! It kept my super-dry skin moisturized throughout the whole day. The consistency and feel reminds me of NARS Sheer Glow. However, I feel the Bobbi Brown lasts much longer but a bit more matte than Sheer Glow. It gives a 'luminous' finish without looking glittery or shiny. The website claims it provides medium to full coverage, but I found it to be more light maybe light-medium coverage. The foundation blends nicely with a foundation brush or sponge. Overall, I'd rate it an 8/10 because it gives me a natural glow without fading throughout the day.




Pros
Natural luminous/glowing finish
Long-lasting
Doesn't break me out
Photographs well

Cons
Difficult to build coverage without adding shine
Only suited for dry skin
No dispenser pump
Price Tag of $46

  6. This is a very nice foundation. I've been using it for a few months. And just an FYI - The MAC foundation pump that is sold seperately fits on this bottle. I just snipped off a small portion of the tubing and voila! Perfect fit! I normally won't buy foundation without a pump, but I couldn't pass on this BB one and I was determined to find a pump that fit!

  8. I can't agree that it was long lasting... maybe it was something I missed in putting on (only did primer). But when I tell YOU, for your skin- it's magical. It's especially noticeable that as I'm trying to get rid of all my products before I buy new (beauty on a budget), this MAC is DEF not the same.
