Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation

Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation
 The latest trend in foundations recently seems to be the 'serum' foundation. Described by Bobbi Brown as foundation and skin care, they're nourishing and generally better for the health of your skin, then a standard foundation.  I originally called at Bobbi Brown to repurchase my Skin Stick foundation (review here) which I adore, but when I had a play with this, I had to try it for myself.

The packaging is sleek, chic and minimalist, everything I love and expect of Bobbi Brown. A coated glass bottle with the product details scribed in white lettering, simple and sophisticated. The pipette applicator is a new one to me, one squeeze of the lid loads the pipette with enough product for one full face application. I have read a lot of reviews, on the Bobbi Brown website, slamming the applicator but I personally love it. It gives you the right amount of product and it's extremely hygienic as you can drop the product straight onto your hand or  brush without making contact with the pipette.

The coverage is light to medium, but extremely buildable, I use one and a half pipette applications to get a coverage I am happy with. The formula is so light and thin it blends into your skin within seconds and leaves your with a natural dewy finish. I typically do not like a dewy finish on my combination skin, but with this foundation I love the way skin looks when it catches the light. The wear time is not as long as my other heavier foundations, but this is to be expected with a dewier finish, but so far I've worn this for a maximum of 8 hours, and it still looks damn good when I come to wash my face.

The actual foundation formula itself is jam packed with skin loving ingredients such as lychee and bamboo grass extract, which give your skin a youthful and airbrushed appearance. The unique oil free formula means even those with oiler, or combination skin types, like myself, can achieve an oil free dewy finish.

The price as you would expect from Bobbi Brown is on the higher side, at £39 this is one of the most expensive foundations I own, but so far it's worth every penny.

What are your thoughts on serum foundations?
