I did not know much about foundations, but in recent years I have suffered an acne crisis. Though it is all gone now (thankfully), I still have marks that are unpleasant to look at. This episode of my life has made me look at foundations. Since Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation SPF 15 was highly recommended to me, I followed my gut and got it.

I have combination skin, so by evening, my T-zone becomes very oily. The shade 4.5 Warm Natural suited me perfectly. Before applying this foundation, I wash my face clean. Then, I apply primer. After applying the primer, I wait for a minute. After a minute, I apply Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation SPF 15 in dots all over my face. I don’t use my fingers to blend it. Instead, I use a sponge to do so. And it blends so easily and gives a very fine smooth texture. But sometimes, when I am in a hurry, I go ahead and blend it with my fingers. It does good work, but I still prefer sponge over fingers.

Coming to how it works, Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation SPF 15 is a very easy foundation that hides all my pores and makes my skin look glowy but not oily. But regarding the coverage, although Bobbi Brown claims to do so, it does not cover all my acne marks. I still like this foundation because it makes my skin look good. Almost a glassy look. The texture is light, almost creamy, which makes it easy to blend.

My verdict for Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation SPF 15 is, it is a good foundation but does not give full coverage. So for those who are looking for good coverage, this is not your foundation. I use this foundation for daily use but till date, it hasn’t let me down, and it stays for a good number of hours. Like I said earlier, my T-zone gets very oily during the evening, so I need a little touch up with my compact. The bonus is the SPF, so no need for any sunscreen. It is a good buy, guys. Worth the price for me.

My advice:

Don’t go for this foundation if you have lots of marks
For dry skin, use it after moisturizing.
Always carry a compact.
Keep on smiling. It’ll enhance your beauty!

No powder required!

PROS

Light texture

Long-lasting

SPF

Flawless finish

Buildable

Comes with a pump dispenser

Does not crease

CONS

Need to moisturize before applying it if you have dry skin

Contains lavender oil


I have extremely dry and dehydrated skin, and most foundations don't work for me. But this foundation is really beautiful. It has medium coverage which is buildable and does not crease at all on me. The texture is rubbery and not the lightest feeling, but not too heavy either. I apply it after I use my daily moisturizer. Without the moisturizer, the foundation does not stay long and becomes patchy. So a moisturizer is a must!

I love that I don't have to powder anything when I use this foundation. The only reason I'm not giving five stars is it contains lavender oil, which isn't great for skin and has the potential to irritate it.

Needs touch-ups frequently
1/5

PROS

Convenient packaging

Relatively good coverage

CONS

Lasts only for three to four hours

Needs to be touched up


I’ve loved Bobbi Brown’s makeup for a long time, so I was hoping that the foundation would be equally as good as the other products. But unfortunately, I did not feel the same way about Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation SPF 15.

This foundation does not last long. I live a very busy life and cannot continuously touch up my makeup throughout the day.

Becomes very patchy

PROS

Pleasant lavender fragrance

Elegant packaging

CONS

Not long-lasting

Expensive

Patchy finish

Light coverage


I heard so much about Bobbi Brown and with high expectations, I purchased Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation SPF 15. I wanted to like this foundation, but it gives becomes patchy and streaks horribly if I am in a humid environment. I stopped using this foundation halfway through the bottle and moved to another foundation.

How to choose the right shade?

Amanda JonesJanuary 14, 2019

Amanda JonesJanuary 14, 2019

It is best to know your skin tone and your undertone, that way it will be much easier to choose your shade. Otherwise, take a small amount of the foundation and blend it on your jawline. Don’t try it out on the back of your hand because it is not the same tone as your face.
