Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick Review and Before & After Photos

Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick
0.31 oz. (9 g)
$41.00 US

Keep Reading for a Review and Before and After Photos!

What it is: "Bobbi's innovative Foundation Stick is designed for portability and adjustable coverage. Easy to apply and blend all over the face or just where you need it. For all skin types, except very oily".

Packaging: What makes this foundation so portable is it's packaging. Because it is a stick foundation it is convenient for touch-ups throughout the day (if needed). 

My Thoughts: Let me be honest, when I first heard of this foundation stick my first thoughts were cakey, heavy makeup. And how wrong was I. The creamy formula feels like satin on the skin and blends beautifully.  The coverage is light to medium but can be built for more coverage. As with other foundations I tend to prefer using my finger tips rather than brushes. I find that using my finger tips helps the product blend evenly, especially with a cream-based product. What makes the foundation stick so innovative is it's versatility. It can be worn as an all over foundation, as a concealer on certain areas (to cover redness, discolorations and/or blemishes) and for touch-ups. The finish is natural and a bit glowy. After setting it with Laura Mercier's Translucent Loose Setting Powder I get a satiny finish which I love. The foundation contains no SPF which makes it perfect for photos!

There are 20 Available shades to choose from- Got to love Bobbi Brown!

Before- Foundation was only applied on these areas (cheeks, around the lips, nose and a bit on the forehead). For under my eyes I used BB corrector and LM secret concealer. 
After
Eyes:
Laura Mercier Eye Basics in Buff
MAC Ricepaper all over lid and brow bone
MAC Espresso on the crease
MAC Haux on the crease
MAC Blacktrack Fluidline
LORAC Multiplex 3D Lashes

Lips & Cheeks:
Revlon Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Natural Beauty


Have you tried the foundation stick or any other Bobbi Brown foundations?

  2. I loved the results that you obtained from this foundation! Your skin is so flawless :) I don't think I have ever tried stick foundations. I always think that they are going to feel too heavy on, or drying. But, after seeing your results, I may just have to give one a try someday *_*

  8. This is my colour too! Great coverage but not OTT or cakey at all! They were sold out when I got colour matched :( Does the stick foundation stay put all day and do you think it would work well for combo skin types? Thank you xx
