Review for: Natural Tan, Natural more...
This product offers a very nice creamy medium-to-full coverage. It lasts pretty long, but not as long as my holy grail, Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup. This I can maybe get 8-10 hours of wear. It does get pretty shiny by the end of the day, as you can see in the photos. I have tried to keep it matte with my Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder and even my BECCA Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder.. it is a more natural matte rather than a full matte finish. It can get cakey, so I use the M.A.C Cosmetics 170 Synthetic Rounded Slant Brush to buff the product and spread it. Start in the middle and work outward shows the best results. Definitely recommend for more dry-to- normal skin types. I am a dry combination, with my nose area and cheeks getting oily throughout the day, but this does not cling to my dry patches around my forehead and chin so that’s a plus!

If you are looking for a cream foundation stick that looks natural, dewy, and medium coverage, this foundation is for you. I would suggest to lightly set it since the product could be a little too creamy. But all in all, this is a great product that you don't need to use so much of. This foundation works well with sponges or brushes.

Bobbi Brown made a new updated formula of the foundation stick years ago and I had both formulas and for my recollection, there wasn't much of a difference that I notice. The performance of how long the foundation last is about the same, the newer formula last a tad bit longer.

If you have dry or normal skin, this product would work well for you. If you have oily skin, I suggest either set the foundation or check out another product for this may slip and move on the skin.

Review for: Cool Ivory more...
I was skeptical about this foundation stick because a lot of foundation sticks tend to feel heavy and some can also be really greasy. I was really impressed when I finally tried it out. The color match is great. I have dry skin so this works out really well for me to provide some hydration without looking greasy. It doesn’t cling to my dry spots and it doesn’t feel heavy at all. It has a great medium to full coverage and it sits well on the skin. I also picked up a shade for contouring and it works really well for that too!

Review for: Porcelain more...
So so good. Wonderful foundation for summer! Lightweight, medium coverage that feels like sheer coverage, and a super natural finish that is easily made to be dewy. Great shade range (alabaster is lighter than NARS Siberia but darker than Mat Velvet 15 and dark colors seem to run pretty far down). Builds up extremely well and easily, hardly any caking occurred with doing so on my dry skin.Downsides: Probably not the best for oily skin unless paired with a mattifying primer or setting powder. It's faintly moisturizing for that skin like - dewy finish so it could be oil town for some. Also won't last longer than around 5-6 hours without a setting product of some kind either but that's pretty normal for products of it's type IME.

Review for: Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick Almond more...
More often than not, cosmetic companies do not offer foundation options for those of us with fair skin and warm undertones. Bobbi Brown's Warm Ivory has been a game-changer for me; no longer do I have to worry about the dreaded "line" dividing my jaw and neck. Not only is the color perfectly complementary, but it also makes my skin look lit from within and oh-so healthy. It looks like my skin, only better. I'm usually open to new products, but I think I've found my foundation soul mate.

Review for: Warm Sand more...
I really feel that this foundation is not really for oily people because the foundation is pretty much like butter. It has a buttery consistency, but not as slimy as butter. The foundation stick glides on my face really well (like butter) and I blend it out with a brush, giving me the most radiant, skin-like finish. However, after a couple of hours, I do get greasy areas in my t-zone. This is when the makeup will slide right off, because it get so oily that it'll come off by the slightest touch. I really need to invest in a matte primer or a finishing spray over the foundation. Also, the amount of foundation is so scant, but it is so expensive!!! I understand it has really good ingredients in the foundation, but I'm going down the stick very quickly. Maybe I need to use less each time, and just go for a light to medium coverage.

Review for: Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick Porcelain 0 more...
One of the only foundations that looks great all day. It doesn’t break me out and I love the natural finish. It’s great year round and is never too drying. It’s definitely on the dewier side of foundation sticks but it looks like skin! It looks great in pictures with no flashback. I would definitely recommend setting with powder if you’re on the oilier side.

Review for: Porcelain, Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick, 0.31 oz Cool Beige more...
It’s good for on the go touch ups, but slides around on my combo skin. Also my BIGGEST con about this is the cap AlWAYS falls off.. and then I lose it and the foundation gets dry and not sanitary to use with not cap. This issue with the cap has happened every time..It allows for a lot of product to be wasted.. because I just end up throwing it out.. for the price of this foundation stick, Bobbi brown should have a better cap to this stick. It’s ridiculous. I have repurchased this twice, but due to the above issues. I would not repurchase.

Review for: Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick Natural 4 more...
I really liked this foundation stick. It gave my skin a very natural appearance and was not too hard on my skin. It’s a light to medium coverage and perfect for everyday. My only compliant is the price. It’s pretty expensive for minimal product. Apparently, the ABH foundation stick is comparable for a fraction of the price. However, I have never use it!

Review for: Golden Honey more...
Not gonna lie, I wasn't sold on the idea of a stick foundation at first but once I tried this one I was sold! One thing I do love about stick foundation is how you have more control over how much product you use and where you place it. I have a flawless finish, it blends easily and it has staying power. Bobbi brown never disappoints.
