it doesn't at all emphasise any lines or wrinkles, in fact, i'd say it minimises them unlike some liquids which sink into lines

pore minimizing

big improvement on previous compact powder foundation , goes on creamy ,never caked , with medium coverage if sponge used or lighter / translucent coverage if you use a brush , any heavier areas or excess is easily rectified by whisking a face brush over your face after application to give a flawless airbrushed finished , this lasts all day without touch ups 16hrs plus , minimises pores and doesn't settle in fine lines , it's also so quick and easy to have perfect foundation in minutes , good colour rage too

- Bobbibrowncosmetics User

it doesn't have an overpowering smell, doesn't break my skin out and doesn't accentuate pores or finelines, rather it hides them well, and makes my face look flawless

- Bobbibrowncosmetics User



it stays on forever, is not cakey in any way and makes my skin look perfectly smooth in complexion

- Bobbibrowncosmetics User

it seems like a powder & foundation, yet not heavy or greasy like some foundations

- Bobbibrowncosmetics User


not creasing

skin weightless powder does not crease or cake up on me and nor does it suck the life out of skin either

- Bobbibrowncosmetics User

i really love this product for the colour and smooth finish (doesnt settle in pores)

- Sephora User

you have to build and build and build and you are only gong to reach a light to a barely light/medium amount of coverage

- Nordstrom User

this is truly a weightless foundation with perfect buildable coverage

- Bobbibrowncosmetics User



the product makes the skin feel so smooth and it actually stays on the entire day/night

- Myer User

really good product, gives a natural look and very smooth on face

- Neimanmarcus User


poor quality

disappointed that i spent more money thinking i’d get something of higher quality

- Sephora User

d get something of higher quality

- Sephora User


non brightening

this broke apart and looked very ashy on my skin

- Sephora User

sticking with the luminous foundation even tho i'm not nuts about liquid foundation

- Nordstrom User


medium coverage

they both share the same great qualities : they blend in superbly, they are not cakey, they are mat without being drying or powdery and they both give excellent medium coverage

- Bobbibrowncosmetics User

i would recommend to anyone who is seeking medium coverage without looking like they're wearing heavy foundation

Used original for years, now disappointed

Hi, I am a loyal customer of BOBBI BROWN and I fell in love with them because of their “illuminating Finish Powder Compact Foundation.” I struggle with adult acne, oily skin, and I have a very yellow undertone, so for years of trial and error I have struggled to find something that would color match me and have a long lasting natural performance: that is what I found and even more with the original product. Since being notified of the formula change, I had faith and trusted that it would be even better, but that was not the situation, far from it my dear friends. The colors turned to more of a pink undertone and none of the colors matched my face. I even get this somewhat of a grey effect with the new “Skin weightless Powder Foundation.” The grey effect happens when one has a yellow undertone and they wear a pinker undertone makeup on top. The performance was disappointing also, I would get oily quick and touching up was out of the question, cakyness occurs. I am beyond disappointed, especially since I have used the product for years. Now I am on the conquest to find other brands that will work for me. Bobbi Brown if you ever read this, please bring back the original formula, I am going through a makeup crisis. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-389155270909073536-full" data-show="-389155270909073536-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span> userSeptember 27, 2014

FINALLY... My Holy Grail Foundation!

Light-skinned ladies listen up... I have been searching for a foundation that matches my skin tone for about as long as I can remember. I have very light skin and even a classic ivory shade in other brands leaves my face looking too red or too orange. BB products are not sold near where I live and I hesitated ordering a foundation online. However, I will assure you that the makeup artists are phenomenal with suggesting colors!!! I have no idea how it's possible to visit 30 makeup counters in person and get the wrong color every single time and then order a foundation online once, and BAM... it's perfect! If you are like me and you are close to an ivory shade but always find that foundation looks to red or too orange for you, I suggest the Warm Ivory shade. It's absolutely beautiful and it's slight yellow tone (and I do mean slight, not olive) helps to balance out any redness. The coverage is great! I would classify it as medium coverage but is easily buildable to full coverage without looking cakey. The finish is semi-matte and looks very natural. It does a better job than most liquids with controlling oil but I find that I still need to blot and touch-up by midday. It's also not too drying for my combination skin. Because of the formula of the foundation, touch-ups are quick and easy and look MUCH better than if you are trying to touch-up with a liquid foundation, especially after you have applied powder. And, in my opinion, it's a small price to pay to finally find a foundation that's the right color for my skin! No more embarrassing photos or dodging natural light! :) This foundation is ohhhh so worth it! Do yourself a favor and give it a try! If it doesn't work out, BB offers free shipping and free returns on foundation so what do you have to lose? « less

Can't say enough good things about this powder foundation. It gives medium coverage which is slightly buildable (I can apply 2 layers without it looking cakey) but very natural looking. I have the shade Natural and it looked too light in the pan but is perfect on my tan skin. In my experience, go lighter in shade when it comes to powder foundations. They look light in the pan but apply darker. There is only very slight oxidation with this one and the shade I got is yellow-based. It's suuuper flattering..there are tiny shiny pigments in the formula. NOT glitter or shimmer but something so deliciously flattering and gives a wonderful glow. It looks even better as the day goes on and gives me an even better glow. I literally can admire myself in the mirror after an 8 hr day with this on (and my skin is far from perfect). Goes on smooth and doesnt accenuate my dry patches or look cakey..I almost didnt believe that a powder foundation could do that. As far as staying powder, it lasts about 8 hours before it starts to seperate. However it's really based on how oily you get. If I blot with sheets and touch up with powder throughout the day, it still will look perfect for longer than 8 hrs. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-4197356817238229539-full" data-show="-4197356817238229539-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span> userSeptember 16, 2014

Soft Focus Foundation and Setting Powder

First of all, "cashmere" means diffuse, natural finish and not a traditional matte texture. This foundation becomes one with your skin's surface without flattening out facial dimensions like a normal matte foundation. Your skin will look like your skin, but with a softer focus.Second, this really is a long-wear formulation. If you think you can wash off this powder foundation with just soap and water, you are in for a surprise during the toner step. Take this off your face like the long-wear foundation that it is. I can't speak for how water-proof or sweat-proof just yet, but I did make it through a humid, drizzly afternoon without needing to reapply.Also, different application methods will produce different results. A powder brush will give a light-coverage fluffy powder finish. The sponge provided or a make-up wedge leaves behind the diffuse, natural finish at light-to-medium coverage (which is how it looks best). A heavier application will bring a truer matte. A moisturizer or a sunscreen can be used underneath this foundation, but this can make the finish more natural than matte. I like using sponges with a light swiff across a general area and then firm pats to set it down. Patting helps reduce the appearance of pores. True to BB tradition, this foundation also photographs wonderfully.My happy discovery is that this is my new favorite setting powder for the BB corrector/concealers. I like using this as a true-to-skin-tone setting powder that increases the opacity of my corrector/concealer as opposed to a sheer, general toned one.Overall, the worse thing I can think of to say about this foundation is that may not be the best choice for mature skin. Dehydration, lines, and roughness are neither hidden or forgiven, but it won't make them look any worse. In the fine lines around the eyes or mouth, the foundation (by itself) hasn't created brittle creases or caked on me the same way other powder-finish foundations have before. People with oily skin may not be able to maintain the diffuse foundation texture for long without reapplying. Again, I struggle to think of real criticisms about this product that are within the scope of its design.I am really glad I gave this powder foundation a chance. It does exactly what it is advertised to do and even more if you try it as a new setting powder option. « less userAugust 6, 2015

Amazing Foundation!

I've been on the hunt for the perfect foundation and I finally found it! I've never used any Bobbi Brown products until now and was actually interested in trying another brand's foundation when the sales rep at that counter sent me over to Bobbi Brown! I've tried everything from high end brands to drug store cheapies and I can say with complete confidence that this foundation is amazing. I have combination skin and I tend to be on the oily side. I've been searching for a product that keeps me looking matte while still giving my face some definition and this foundation is that perfect combination. Since I am oily I don't expect a foundation to last a full 8-hour work day without having to touch-up, I'm realistic in that sense. That's why the compact and formula are so perfect because you can touch-up your face any time, any where. My skin looks and feels amazing while using this product! I have full coverage without looking like I have pounds of makeup on. This foundation doesn't look cakey at all, it looks so incredibly natural. The only thing I could do without is the smell, I find it smells really makeupy on my face but given all its other benefits, I'll tolerate the smell! In love with this product!! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>
