WHY YOU NEED THE NEW BOBBI BROWN FOUNDATION STICK
BY CHERIE GILL
The original Bobbi Brown foundation stick was a revolutionary beauty product. Packed with essential oils, it both hydrated the skin and left a beautiful, dewy finish.
Well, maybe too dewy.
We all love Bobbi for her expertise in creating foundations that look like SKIN (shouldn’t be that hard, right?) and a color range that actually includes all skin tones from alabaster to espresso.
Well, here’s the thing… The original foundation stick had an amazing amount of coverage, but along with that came the unfortunate consequence of a sometimes mask-y effect on our clients with beautiful, deep skin tones that carry darker tones around the halo of the face. This made it great for spot concealing, but sometimes difficult for full-face wear.
In addition, the formula was so packed with essential oils that it was a bit too rich and a little difficult to spread on the skin. There. How is that for honesty?
The NEW and improved foundation stick (renamed the Skin Foundation Stick) has every great quality of the original with all of the kinks worked out.
The new line has 4 additional shades, for a total of 24!!! This is a wider shade range than ANY department store brand. How great is that!? Talk about Global Beauty!
To address the mask-y problems, this new formula has a transparent base, as opposed to the white base that the old stick had. This means that instead of insane paint-like coverage, you still get full-coverage that looks more like your true skin tone showing through with a veil of pigment over it.
The richness of the formula was addressed too, by infusing silica into the shea butter based product. This helps to absorb oil where you need it, as well as hydrate where you need it too. It blends much easier into the skin, it wears longer, and is more lightweight than ever before.
I’m satisfied, go get yours!
