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.

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.

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?

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.

go to your local sephora not wearing any makeup.. only your daily sunscreen... and get color matched by a lovely sephora employee... they will help you.. walk outside and look at the color that you like the most in natural light... so don't go at night.. :) i like to do half of my face in the 2 colors that i think are the closest match to my skin tone and then decide from there..

hope this helps .. have fun..

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. :)

Don't wear any product with Titanium or Zinc for photography. It will give a whitish cast to your face.

To assure you don't look pale in photos, the trick will be in what you put on after this foundation! :-) I have the warm beige in the Skin Foundation and don't think it looks ghostly in the least. It's a great light coverage that does not reflect.

For extra color on your nose, cheeks, chin and above the brow, I'm a huge fan of the Dior Nude glow enhancing powder. Sunset is very dark, but Sunrise could help give you extra glow for photos. Here it is on Sephora.com: http://www.sephora.com/diorskin-nude-tan-healthy-glow-enhancing-powder-P309702?skuId=1414184

Hope that helps!

Bobbi Brown Skin foundation shade
Hi. I am a NC20, Px cream. I've been matched to a few different shades in Bobbi. Online sites put me in a few shades (warm ivory, sand, warm sand). I have blonde hair, blue eyes and no pink tones. What would you suggest as a color match? Thanks.

I have a similar skin-colouring in the winter time and I would recommend either 2 or 2.5. Bobbi Brown tends to lean more yellow than other brands, but the lighter colours tend to be less yellow. 2 is lighter but more neutral than 2.5.

Impossible to say for sure, without seeing you, but the Sand and Warm Sand have a very yellow undertone.

The ingredients are listed on the box the foundation comes in, not the actual bottle and I would imagine that most people have thrown the box out and therefore are unable to list the ingredients. Perhaps you could go onto Bobbi Brown's website and find an ingredients list. However, I do know (because I purchased it and checked) that there are no parabens in it, at least there weren't at the time of my purchase. Hope this helps!
