Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation
The main problem with having an oily skin type is always having to touch up a shiny face.
After about 3 hours of wearing my foundation my face often resembles the back of a spoon!
I'm not one for a heavy foundation and often find long wearing foundations are long wearing because they are heavy and cakey.
On seeing the Bobbi Brown advertising slogan "Natural coverage meets 12 hour wear" I was keen to give it a go.
The 30ml pump action bottle comes in a really good range of 18 shades from Porcelain to Espresso.
I have been wearing the colour Warm Honey as I have a slight summer tan at the moment. I find the shades slightly more yellow based but they do settle down and tone in after a few minutes wear.
The liquid blended into my skin easily and was absorbed fast. My skin looked instantly matte but without a dry cakey finish.
Even though I have an oily skin I still like a natural radiance to my skin and although matte my skin still looked like skin with a natural sheen.
I have been wearing this foundation for a few days now and have been touching up with powder a lot less. It does last really well on the skin and oil is definitely controlled well.
The only negative I did find was that I have a few small open pores on my cheeks and after a few hours this foundation did settle into them slightly.
This can be avoided by using a pore refining product or primer but with my oily skin less layers is best for me so I just prefer a foundation on its own.
This foundation does contain SPF15 but I didn't find that it flashed back at all so a good choice for photo shoots, editorial work, weddings or your Facebook profile picture!
Overall a really nice naturally matte, medium but buildable coverage foundation that I would say is comparable to Chanel Matte Lumiere or MAC Pro Longwear.
Available from September 2012 from www.bobbibrown.co.uk priced at £30.00
