Not worth the $41 in my opinion...
I used a Sigma F80 to apply this foundation, & I did set it with a powder. Pro’s: - Good pigmentation - Good coverage - Nice & creamy - Easy to blend - Can double as a concealer Con’s: - Clung to dry patches, making them stand out - Got a little patchy/seems to break down as the day progressed Overall: This is a good foundation, however it did not work as well for me as my drugstore Revlon Colorstay or my Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse, so I would not consider it worth the $41. I have pictures & swatches on my beauty blog here: http://shelberrycupcake.tumblr.com/post/21634713505/bobbi-brown-foundation-stick
Great coverage but tends to get oily
I recently rediscovered this in my makeup drawer and I've been trying it out for the last couple of days. There are a lot of things I really, really like about it: the form is super convenient (no pumping liquid out onto your hand, etc etc), and the coverage is really great. It's very thick and creamy, and feels great to put on. I also like that it's very easy to blend out and it somehow manages to be both full coverage and natural looking. Finally, I always feel like I won the lottery when I find a foundation that's a match to my very, very, very pale skin (NW10 for MAC is almost too dark...)
The major problem I have with this foundation is that I have pretty oily skin, and after just a few hours of wear, this foundation seemed to start breaking down. I really couldn't make it the whole day without blotting, and it was really pretty bad. Even using powder a couple of times during the day the oil just seemed to really go nuts.
Bottom line: if you don't have oily skin, this is a fantastic full coverage foundation you should try! I'm going to keep trying with different primers, but sadly I'm afraid this isn't for us oily skin girls.
