I have an oily and acne prone skin. I usually use liquid foundation as it suits my skin type. I heard about Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder Foundation and checked out about it's review and price online. The reviews had mixed emotions and about the price, it is super expensive. Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder Foundation comes in a black rectangular plastic box which contains two compartments side by side, one for the powder foundation and another compartment for the sponge. It also has a mirror which is reasonably sized. It is compact and travel friendly. Some people have said that the powder foundation cracked up being messy when they carried it in their bag during travel. Like I said before, the price is expensive. Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder Foundation comes in 20 shades with more number of shades matching yellow undertones. You have to be careful in choosing the right shade for your skin or it will be a total waste of money. The product claims to conceal imperfections, fine lines, and pores. It also says that it gives a oil-free effect through heat and humidity. The product has a creamy texture. It gives a smooth finish and feels light on skin. The application is simple and doesn't need an extra effort. It doesn't give a cakey or patchy effect and gives a oil free look for oily skin as it absorbs excess oil. In case of dry skin, one should use a heavy moisturizer prior this foundation to avoid dry patches. Regarding the coverage, the product itself has said that it gives a sheer coverage. So if you have a clear skin with just a minor imperfections, it will hide out those. But if you have acne scars and blemishes which are red, then you will need a concealer to hide it. The sponge gives a good coverage while the powder fluffy brush gives a light coverage. This product works great as a setting powder. But considering the price, one can think about it. It stays on skin for 4-5 hours and you need a touch up after that. It doesn't set into fine lines if you use this as a setting powder with a concealer and a liquid foundation before it.

PROS

Convenient packaging

Evens out skin tone

Blends easily

Natural finish

Does not sit on fine lines and wrinkles

CONS

Needs touch-ups

Makes skin oily after three to four hours


Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder Foundation comes in a sleek compact with a sponge placed next to the foundation. The packaging is very convenient and makes the whole application process fast and easy.

This powder foundation does not give heavy coverage but just the right amount to give a natural look. It also evens out the skin tone smoothly although it won’t cover individual spots.
I use the sponge to blend because a brush does not give enough coverage.

What I like the most about this compact is the finishing. It is very natural and blends like my second skin.

One downfall though, is that this powder foundation makes my face quite oily after three to four hours. I expected it to stay matte for long. Also, blotting can make the foundation patchy.

Overall, my final verdict is, this Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder Foundation is meant for a natural look. So if you are looking for good coverage, this one is not right for you. But if you want a natural look, please go ahead and give it a try.

Decent coverage but gets messy if you try to build it up

Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder Foundation is great for the days I am in a hurry but still want to look good. It comes in a sleek compact with a small sponge. I don’t use the sponge because I have a thing for makeup brushes. So I use MAC foundation brush and get decent coverage. It gives light coverage. Once I tried to build it up, but my skin looked powdery, and it just got messy.

Some people also complain that the powder tends to crack and fall apart if they travel with it. I have not had that issue, but I do not store it in my check-in luggage.

I have been using this powder foundation for almost a year. I just love it.

Good coverage without a cakey look

I was looking for a lightweight foundation with medium coverage for my combination skin. And then I was introduced to Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder Foundation. I have been using it for the last six months, and I really like it. I use the makeup sponge provided by it, and it works very well. I am so glad that a sponge is provided because it saves me extra expense of buying a brush or a sponge. The powder foundation has good coverage for my light freckles without giving me a cakey look.

I would suggest checking your skin tone properly before purchasing as one of my friends was in complete loss for getting the wrong shade.

Becomes very patchy

Weightless

Not long-lasting

Gets flaky

Becomes patchy

Does not suit all skin types

I bought this product because I needed a mild daily foundation. I thought it would be excellent because everyone seems to be giving it a good review. When I first put it on, I was in love! It was smooth and matte and comfortable.

But later that day, I noticed a lot of flakes. By the end of the day, it was nearly all gone. Some of it was still on my face but in small patches, and my skin looked orange. I would definitely not purchase it again, especially for the price.
