Rather than categorising people, closing that gap and treating everyone the same, no matter their skin tone, is so important.
Everyone deserves to feel included. We pride ourselves on being a multicultural country, so to see that reflected in our beauty products would be a beautiful thing.
So, What's My Global Shades Foundation?
What: Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Long-Wear Foundation SPF15 - A 16-hour wear, full coverage foundation with a natural, multidimensional matte finish that’s comfortable, breathable, and weightless.
Why I love it:
I’ve been a pretty committed dewy finish foundation-wearer for a while now. Many matte foundations I've tried in the past have made my olive skin look quite dull, but not this one.
This Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation has me a changed woman.
True to its name, I found it to be a lightweight formula that delivered more of a matte finish, while simultaneously leaving a subtle luminosity (visible only in the sunlight). It actually enhanced my own complexion. Kind of genius, really.
The oil-free, buildable texture worked kind of like a skin corrector, I noticed right away how it softened the appearance of my pores.
Best of all, I discovered the ‘long-wear’ claim was more than just clever marketing. I applied the foundation at 10am, went for a jog at 7pm (weather was hot and humid) and at 10pm, my makeup still looked fresh.
If you have oily skin and want a matte foundation that doesn’t compromise on radiance, this one’s for you.
