Foundation Review: Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation SPF 15

My go to foundation choice over the past year has been the Nars Sheer Glow foundation in Siberia. I found it works amazingly for my oily skin and even though it has a light to medium coverage I found it worked amazingly at covering any pigmentation or blemishes that I had. So you're probably wondering why I'm out trying new foundations when clearly I already found the perfect one? Well, as much as I love trying out hundreds of different skincare products, I found this love has slowly started moving over to makeup, but more so foundation.

As a fellow acne sufferer, I found it can be quite hard trying to find a foundation which is thick enough to cover any redness and pigmentation whilst at the same time last all day and look natural. Therefore, to help out others in a similar situation as me, I've made it my job to trial and test and report back for my acne sufferers out there about what foundations I feel work for my skin and which could potentially work for you and make it worth your money.
Now, I'm going to start by saying I've never tried anything from Bobbi Brown before. *shock horror* It was always one of those brands I heard numerous people mention, but kind of looked at it as one of those brands which could essentially work great for another but not technically me. The likes of Lily Pebbles and Anna from The Anna Edit go crazy for Bobbi Brown makeup and after noticing the very sleek, as well as more for your money bottle, as well as the amazing selection of shades (if you're struggling to find your right shade for a new brand and don't have a counter near you, I'd highly recommend going to this website) I took the plunge and deposited away £28 (I had a discount) of money to the Bobbi Brown website.
My favourite part about the Bobbi Brown foundation is that it comes with a pump. Unlike my current Nars one, you have to pay for the pump seperate which can total you to about £35-£36 depending on where you purchase it. What I also like about this foundation is the colour range. For someone who is as pale as me, it isn't always guaranteed that the lightest shade of foundation available is going to match with your skintone, so it was nice to see they had a shade which went past porcelain if that wasn't light enough. Thankfully, the shade porcelain matched me well enough and compared to the consistency of the Nars foundation, this one blended beautifully into my skin and looked a lot more natural due to the consistency being quite runny and thin, which allowed for you to go with the bare minimum or build it to your desired opaqueness.

Have you tried any Bobbi Brown foundations? What are your thoughts?
