Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation in “04 Natural” Review, Swatch & FOTD-
Hey my pretties!
I am so stoked 😀 I have coveted Bobbi Brown foundations forever but never had the guts to shell out their mad prices so imagine my glee when my beautiful sister-in-law took me diwali shopping with her & bought this raved & hyped skin foundation from Bobbi Brown ^_^ I am NC30/NW25 in MAC & I was perfectly matched to the shade “04 Natural” in BB 🙂
What Bobbi Brown Says-
This water-based, oil-free formula delivers undetectable coverage and a fresh, hydrated glow for the most natural skin-like finish. In addition to weightless, long-wearing coverage and hydration, the formula minimizes the appearance of pores, conceals imperfections, and delivers broad spectrum UV protection. Buildable formula goes easily from light to medium and is available in wide range of shades for all skin tones.
How to Use-
After moisturizing, apply with the Foundation Brush (sold separately) or fingers where needed to even out skin tone and cover imperfections. For complete coverage, dot foundation on nose, forehead, cheeks, and chin and blend out toward the hairline.
Price: 50$ for 30 ml in USA & 4750/- INR in India
My take on the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation in “04 Natural”-
The foundation comes in a heavy glass bottle with a black pump & a tight cap. I love how luxurious it looks but it is certainly not travel friendly :-/ I will have to pour it out into a small tub while travelling.
The foundation is a dream in terms of texture oh my god- it is so fluid, so watery you can apply it easily with brush,sponge or fingers, the effect will be airbrushed every single time. I stared as the S.A applied it on my face at the store transfixed as the foundation simply melted into my skin & only my skin was left behind with no trace of it- but a healthier, far more glowing skin <3 Thus the name, I suppose.
It is the perfect formula for ladies who have no great issues with skin pigmentation & want a sheerer, glowing finish which poses as their natural skin. This foundation offers just that, my skin but better finish & you can easily get away if you say you are sans any makeup 😉 It IS that undetectable ^_^
The lasting power is excellent & it neither melts nor feathers on my face till I take it off after the entire day 🙂 And oh, did I mention that this is the first time in my life I have worn a foundation without setting it with a loose powder? Even in the humidity of Mumbai– yep.
The foundation comes with a SPF 15 & did not make my skin oilier/drier & did not break my skin out.
The coverage is a buildable medium, so you can get away with only wearing layer of this if you don’t have too many spots ^_^ It also does not look patchy if built up.
Pros of the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation in “04 Natural”:
1> Luxurious glass bottle packaging with pump.
2> Fluid, dreamy , light texture- applies & blends into skin like a dream.
3> Almost undetectable on skin, skin looks naked, radiant & healthy!

Cons of the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation in “04 Natural”:

Swatch of the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation in “04 Natural”-
On me- (wearing nothing else on my skin, no concealer, no powder, no primer nothing)
My Rating: 4.99/5!
Do I recommend the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation?
Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation is undoubtedly the BEST foundation I have ever used & I know, I know, at this price it should better be 😛 Jokes apart, it is a lightweight, glowy foundation which makes your skin look like skin, but radiant, glowing, rested. All the things we wish our skin to be, along with medium coverage, that is what BB Skin Foundation helps us achieve! Do pick this up if you are looking to indulge! I would recommend 🙂
