Bobbi Brown is a brand which has intrigued me for a long, long time. I've tried a few Bobbi Brown products, the Almond blush being a favourite every day product for me and after having the 10 Step Pretty Powerful Lesson I was super intrigued to try more. I can be a bit fickle where foundation is concerned. Jumping from one to the next like their nothing more than a TV show to get hooked on before moving on to the next. But every once in a while, whether it's a foundation, a blusher, a bronzer, an eye-shadow, I find myself with a product that leaves me utterly weak at the knees and ready to declare my adoration and love to the World. Step in Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation!
With a built in SPF15 this foundation has a pretty impressive list of benefits. A Bobbi Brown best seller, the Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation is a natural-looking and long-wearing foundation which feels comfortable and light on your skin, hydrating and has a medium to full coverage with a fantastic oil-free formula which never looks cakey or masky. It contains glycerin and shea butter which help keep your skin feeling moisturised while the gel base creates a lightweight finish which stays colour-true. It has a lasting power of up to 12 hours, which I've well and truly put to the test and think it goes far beyond 12 hours on long, busy days, and it's great even on days where the weather can't decide whether it's going to be cold, wet, hot, sweltering or hurricane windy. It protects skin from future damage with it's build in SPF15 and even has antioxidants and vitamins C and E! Pretty darn impressive, right?
If I'm out all day long, this is the foundation I reach for. If I have a date with a friend, an evening out with my partner or a meeting to attend, this is the foundation I reach for. If I am travelling the Country left right and center for Uni and day trips, this is the foundation I reach for. It leaves the most beautiful 'my skin but better' completely naturally looking finish, the shade is a perfect match for my skin tone and it lasts. Boy does it last. It's perfect. It's love. It needs it's own Twitter and Facebook fan pages just so I can publicly swoon over how amazing it is. I am besotted. You can find the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation on the Bobbi Brown website and a 30ml bottle costs £30, and is available in 18 shades.
What caught my eye with Bobbi Brown?
There is quite a history to Bobbi Brown so if you fancy finding out a bit more about this high-end brand then the Bobbi Brown Biography over on the official Bobbi Brown website is a lovely read. It's inspiring how far people can come! Bobbi Brown has been a brand I am aware of for quite a while now, mainly for the fact of their lovely and wonderfully bright Makeup Manual always being on display around House of Fraser stores. I actually picked up the Makeup Manual when I had my makeup lesson and it's been a lovely read. Let me know if you would like a review of the Makeup Manual as I would be happy to do one.
