BOBBI BROWN: The New Skin Foundation Stick Review!

A couple of years ago I was a complete Bobbi Brown virgin, but they are now popping up in my makeup bag more and more.  I’m now a sucker for their base products; foundations and concealers especially, so when I heard about this new Skin Foundation Stick I couldn’t resist!



I really adore this product and it has become a staple in my makeup bag, not only for main foundation application but also for touch ups throughout the day.  It’s easy to use in a stick format, which twists up easily when you need more.  I’ve found in the past with some stick foundations that they really accentuate and cling on to dry skin but with this one it blends perfectly into my skin, leaving any imperfections covered, but my skin also looking natural and not cakey at all (as you can see above).

I’m really impressed by the shade range available – from the palest ivory to darker tones there is a shade for everyone.  I find getting a good foundation shade really difficult because I’m super pale, but I’m a ‘Porcelain’ in this product which is the second from lightest shade.

To apply, I simply draw lots of lines on my face, especially around nose and problem areas, and then buff into the skin with a Real Techniques or Zoeva face brush.  I also think these would be perfect for contouring – as they are in stick formula, you can choose one a shade lighter and some shades darker to add some definition to your face shape.

The new Skin Foundation Stick is available for Β£29 from Bobbi Brown – I highly recommend!

Have you tried any Bobbi Brown Foundations before?

    I've not tried Bobbi B's stick foundations before, but their liquid ones are always a favourite πŸ™‚

    I've never tried a foundation stick, for some reason I've always had this idea that they would be difficult to use but the finish looks gorgeous on you :o) Xx

    I don't have any Bobbi Brown foundations but this one looks amazing! I swear by their colour correctors though, amazing for under eye bags xx

    I've always been intrigued by stick foundations but I've also held off because of dry skin concerns; however the finish it gives in the photos above looks gorgeous! Plus I can imagine how easy it makes touchups. Thanks for this review!

    I was looking at these in selfridges yesterday and couldn't believe how many different shades were available, definitely something for everyone! I have a bobbi brown concealer, powder foundation and liquid foundation and love them all so will definitely be trying these πŸ™‚ Great idea to use them for contouring/highlighting too! I may have to get 3! haha

    I have never tried or come across a stick foundation before so this was interesting πŸ™‚ I always thought a stick foundation would be difficult to apply and uneven but this sounds gorgeous and very creamy!! I might give this a try πŸ™‚ xx

  13. May 2, 2014 / 10:02 pm

    I haven't tried anything from Bobbi Brown but I am tempted to after reading this post!

  14. May 2, 2014 / 10:07 pm

    This product is amazing. I love it and also use it in my makeup bag. I never used to do too many touch ups, but this makes it so convenient and easy.

    Love the foundation, looks great on you! By the way, what lip stick is it you're wearing? It's a lovely shade!

  16. May 2, 2014 / 11:16 pm

    thank you so much for this post! i've been thinking about getting this for about a month now, but im pretty sure im going to get them πŸ™‚ it looks great on you, are you wearing concealer?

  17. May 3, 2014 / 5:44 am

    No I havent but I really wanted to try some! This one looks very nice in the skin but maybe i'll go for their liquid foundation just because I like liquid better. They better be good! Hehehee

    I am a huge huge fan of the original foundation stick! This one looks great on you or may be your skin is great? πŸ˜€

    I have never try bobbi brown before, looks really good im going ti have to try it now!

  22. May 3, 2014 / 6:47 pm

    I've never tried a stick foundation before. The result looks great on your skin though, so maybe I'll give it a try as well. I am just kind of afraid that it will be too difficult to blend and tug on my skin.

  23. May 4, 2014 / 5:08 am

    Ooooh this looks good! I usually have only used foundation sticks for contouring but your foundation looks so great here I might have to try this one out! Great review Katie! : )

  24. May 4, 2014 / 8:28 pm

    I always feel like stick foundations will run out so fast?! This one looks interesting though so might have to try it! xx

  25. May 5, 2014 / 8:29 am

    Wow! The foundation looks so natural on you!

    I've never actually owned any bobbi brown products but I'm always in search of good foundations/concealers. I might have to check this out next time I'm around a bobbi brown counter.

  29. May 12, 2014 / 11:24 am

    I was thinking weather to get this, now I think I'll give it a try πŸ™‚

    I love Bobbi Brown products, they are excellent for fair skinned girls like me! Does anyone know how this differs from the old stick foundation though in terms of finish/longevity?
