Questions & Answers for Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation SPF 15

Question
Which shade is right for my fair skin?
I have fair skin, brown hair, blue eyes. I normally wear i.d. bareminerals in fair (1c). I'm not sure what my undertones are. I've tried the Makeup Forever high def. foundation in ivory (115) and it made my face look too pink and was a little dark for me. I then tried Makeup Forever in marble (117), and this looked pretty good, but it's just a tad too yellow and dark. My face is a little pink from all the stuff I use to combat my acne, so I need a color that will neutralize that and help my face to match the rest of my body. I've heard a lot of great things about Bobbi Brown cosmetics, and I would love to try this foundation, but there seems to be a lot of options for fair skin, and I'm overwhelmed. I don't have a Sephora store near me, so I can't try an in-store sample. Which shade is right for me?

I would definitely recommend going into a Sephora store and asking one of their specialists. I was pleasantly surprised when I went in and asked about foundation in general and she directed me straight to Bobbi Brown. Also, I was a darker shade than I thought I was. I've always been quite pale with pink undertones, but instead of being like, one of the porcelain fair shades, I ended up being Cool Beige.

This doesn't exactly answer your question, but in regards to MUFE HD you're probably 110!

My closest shade in MUFE HD is 117 also, and I wear Sand 2.0 in Bobbi Brown! The shade right underneath that, Warm Ivory, I could wear also, but it's quite a bit more yellow! Hope that helps!

I have fair-medium skin with yellow undertones. In most foundations I wear the 2nd lightest shade. In Bobbi Brown I wear 2.5 warm sand. It sounds like your skin is quite fair and neutral tone. If I were you, I'd buy the 2 lightest shades and return one (0 and 00). The third shade (1) is a 'warm' and will probably be too yellow on you, but if 0 or 00 are too light you could try 2. Sephora has an excellent return policy. I also have problems with adult-acne and redness and this foundation evens me out quite well. It's also buildable so I can put a second layer on the reddest areas and it covers well but still looks natural.

Question
What Color to Select?
I would like to purchase the Bobbi Brown skin foundation but am not sure what color to use. Currently I use Bare Escentuals in Fairly Light or MAC NW20. Could someone suggest which would be appropriate for Bobbi Brown?
Thanks.

No it won't. I bought this not knowing that products containing spf can make you look like a ghost in photographs but thank goodness this wasn't the case with this foundation. Skin looks great both in professional and phone camera pictures.

I find this to be a light to medium coverage foundation. It will cover some redness but any dark blemishes would need some layering or use of concealer before-hand. It won't give you complete coverage.

Yes, it covers my significant acne scar very well. Build up the coverage with layering. However, if you have problem with your skin texture with boxcar dimples or bumps, like I do, the skin will still not be completely smooth. The pigmentation can be covered.

Oil free? color help please :)
Hi there! This foundation sounds great, but I have a few questions. Is it oil free? What would be the correct color for light skin with pink undertones? Last, but not least does BB produce cruelty free products? Thanks for any help that you can give!

I have light skin with pink undertones and Cool Beige is perfect for me. The colors seem to run light and a bit yellow, but I was pleasantly surprised that Cool Beige was the best color match I've ever had. I don't know if it's oil-free, but I have adult acne and it doesn't make me break out at all.

I also use NC35. Remember that ALL of the BB foundations are very yellow, but some more than others. You could go with Beige (VERY peachy) or cool beige, which is NOT cool, more neutral on the yellow side - I did that. If these are too dark, which I doubt, you could go with Warm Sand. But those are the options. I think Beige is ridicolously peachy. BTW, this is an awesome foundation.

I would suggest going into a store and having one of the employees match up your color. That is what I did and I am glad I did, I got a perfect match.

Question
Good over pigmented acne scars?
I've suffered from persistent acne for over 7 years, and now, though I'm glad to say the huge amount of breakouts have pretty much disappeared and my skin is now basically smooth, I still have many concentrated clusters of dark scars on my cheeks. I'm not exactly looking for a foundation to cover them by itself (because any foundation that is supposed to do that is WAYYY too heavy, and I do NOT want to look like I'm wearing foundation), but I'm looking for one that will still look natural with concealer over my cheeks.
Would this foundation work for that? If not, could you recommend another? Right now I'm using NARS Sheerglow.
Thank you!

I have acne scars and I find that this foundation has a great amount of coverage and has a very natural look. Make sure that you get matched with the appropriate shade and I think you will like the result. A concealer could be used if the acne scars are very dark, but this foundation really is very nice for uneven skin.

I have used both foundations, and i'll have to say I love BB Skin Foundation a little more. With the Nars Sheer Glow I find it breakdown after a while (probably about hr 8), which is still a great foundation, but i think BB is more long wearing. It is also a little more natural looking. Either one is an excellent choice though.

I tried Nars sheer glow and found the color wasn't exactly the right match for me. With BB skin, it was a perfect match. Both products felt great on the face but BB blends better. I use very little or no setting powder with the BB.

Shade recommendation?
My local sephora doesn't carry Bobbi Brown products do I can't be matched. I also don't have a Bobbi Brown counter near me. I wear Nars Sheer Glow in Deauville, Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer in nude and Bare Minerals Fairly Light. Can anyone help me with what color I should buy? I was leaning toward Sand 2 after looking at swatches online. Thanks for your help.

Lightweight, but full coverage, doesn't become oily or dry and cracked. This is my favorite foundation ever and I have tried just about everything. I found this quite by accident. Sephora sent me a Bobbi Brown sample a few months back and it was happily ever after since then. I have light/medium combination skin. I use the 3.5 Beige or the 4.0 Natural. For comparison purposes, I use Medium Beige in Bare Minerals. Works great with creme blush and powder blush alike. Young gals and older gals alike- this money spent well. I hope I have provided you with a fair, objective and helpful review. :)
