Bobbi Brown Luminous Moisturizing Foundation

Bobbi Brown Luminous Moisturizing Foundation - Selfridges

Hiya guys! So as you know I was away for 2 weeks and from that I have come back pretty tanned so therefore thought it was the perfect opprotunity for me to try out a new foundation! The foundations which I normally use are Mac Pro Longwear Liquid Foundation and/or Nars Sheer Glow. It all started with a little trip to selfridges and me ending up at the Bobbi Brown counter. I told the lady who served me that I have quite normal skin which gets a little dry with weather changes like especially in the winter and that I like a more dewy finish rather than a matte. 
She ended up first matching me up with their stick foundation which led me to the colour warm honey. This is such a nice gorgeous colour compared to my face. What annoys me Is that my forehead and the area around my lips is a little darker than the rest of my face so they normally tell me to get two foundations but I really don't have the money to be buying two when they cost more than £30 each. So I always go for the darker shade to save me some money! She then asked what kind of coverage I like, I obviously answered with full which she said I didn't need so offered to do half my face with the stick foundation which is full coverage and then half with the luminous moisturizing foundation. Surprisingly I preferred the medium coverage one more and therefore ended up purchasing it.

After a week and a bit of wearing it I really have grown to love it! I definitely prefer it over Nars Sheer Glow!! However I prefer my Mac for full coverage so for days/nights where I'm going to special events. I would definitely recommend this foundation my only flaw was that I have noticed a few more spots on my forehead and near my nose however I don't know if I can blame this completely on the foundation as I have been pretty lazy when it has come to removing my foundation.

To sum it up the foundation is really really good and is buildable! They have a lot of shades so it's easy to find one that matches your skin tone. It's also really light and makes me feel like i'm not wearing much at all on my face. It definitely leaves my face very dewy and glowy.

That's all for now! Hope you're all well :)

  9. I wish I could afford a high end foundation, I've heard so many amazing things about it. Do you know if it comes with a pump as I could see tipping it out the pot being quite hard towards the end?
