Review: Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation


Hi Beauties, Bobbi Brown has just launched an additional 12 shades of their best selling Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation. The range now boasts 35 shades for most shades and undertones.

What Bobbi Brown says about their Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation, “A 16-hour wear, full coverage foundation with a natural, multidimensional matte finish that’s comfortable, breathable, and weightless.” 

Overall Thoughts about Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation:

  • Retails for $70 AUD
  • In 2019 this foundation won the Glosscars Best Foundation- so as you can tell my expectations were high
  • I used Temptalia to find my shade and was matched with 4.5. Personally I found 4.5 a bit light for me so don’t judge the shade below.
  • I’ve tried applying it with a sponge and brush and while I normally prefer a sponge, I find this foundation applies better with a brush and then a quick sponge to blend out the brush marks.
  • Its a thicker formula and I use about 2 full pumps which is quite a lot for me.
  • I feel it sits a bit on the skin- but that could be because its a lighter shade I found it more noticeable.
  • As you can see its pretty full coverage, all my pigmentation is covered up just from the foundation alone.
  • The finish is quite matte, so be careful not to get too carried away with powder.
  • Looks great for the first 5 hours especially once your natural oils come through.
  • By the end of the day the foundation completely breaks down around my nose, but still looks good in person, only I can tell it was starting to break down.

Here’s a before, fresh face and sorry its poor lighting.


After- just foundation, concealer and cream contour.


Here’s the finished look.


And here is the foundation mixed with a darker foundation.


I really do like this foundation, I feel it creates an airbrushed look and lasts really well on the skin. I think it would be great for oily skin types, but probably too matte and drying for dry and dehydrated skin types. I would definitely consider purchasing the right shade in this foundation as the finish is flawless! Make sure to get colour matched in store x
