Question
Color match for foundation Warm Sand 2.5
Which color powder should I try? I use Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation in Warm Sand 2.5, which puts me in the light to medium category, I believe.

Question
What color for summer?
I think I should use the pale yellow because I am very light but I was wondering if I should go one shade darker to soft sand for the summer?

these are translucent so you won't get much coverage out of this powder. if you are looking for coverage, there is a powder foundation (and you should get matched). pale yellow should be fine if you are a light complexion. soft sand may turn a little dark if you get oily or sweaty :-)

What kind of coverage?
Curious about what kind of coverage this product gives? Is it buildable?

This is a sheer setting powder, so it does not offer extra coverage. This is very sheer and finely milled.

I'd say this product works very well especially with a tad bit of concealer. I have begun to skip using foundation...something I could never do in the past.
This powder delivers what it promises whilst looking natural. Excellent product!

The first ingredient listed is talc. I have had other powders look cakey on me, too, but this one does not.

Yes it does contain talc but it really does not look cakey or greyish at all. It's really a pretty amazing product and also you can put it on lightly and slowly to build your coverage. The only thing is if possible I would get a color match at Bobbi brown if you have one. Worth the money!

Question
does this product make sensitive skin breakout?
I have acne prone skin and though I've heard great reviews about this product, I'm scared that it'll just make me break out. I can't tell for sure because the list of ingredients isn't listed, but does anyone happen to know if this product is okay for sensitive skin/acne prone skin?

I have sensitive skin and this product has never broken me out. It's not cakey just gives a natural sheer coverage.

I suffer from cysts and regular acne and haven't had any problems with this product at all. Make sure you regularly wash your brushes and let them air dry. And rish out the sponge once a week to keep the bacteria levels down. I'd suggest trying a non-pressed/loose powder if you're concerned about acne, though. It's harder to clean the compact applicator than it is to clean a brush.

face powder
Is the bobbi brown face powder in the white really white or does that just mean translucent with no color at all because I am looking for no color.

It's really white, but if you have fair skin don't be afraid of it. It does look a little white on my skin at first, but it quickly disappears into my skin and gives a perfect, matte, oil-controlling finish to my BB porcelain shade foundation and concealer. I'm VERY glad I gave it a chance. Use it a little sparingly and it's an excellent product.

Thought I would also add, the powder foundation is more on the powder side. It's not creamy. It would be your best bet.

Try her powder foundation. This powder will not give any coverage. I love that it is very fine powder, so it sets make up well without looking cakey, but it doesn't get rid of shine too well.
