Bobbi Brown makeup and my foundation switch

I just found a new everyday product and kicked an old one to the curb. Remember my post on Dior foundation? Well, it was time for a change. After having two friends and my mom in the same week ask me what I thought about Bobbi Brown products, I knew it was time for a review.

I went to the Nordstrom Bobbi Brown makeup counter and talked with an incredibly nice guy about my foundation needs(something lightweight and non-oily that can be layered for heavier covered but is natural for daily wear) and he headed straight for Skin Foundation SPF 15, the same thing the Bobbi Brown experts online had recommended.

Skin Foundation is so named because it’s supposed to feel exactly like your skin. I like the fact that they kept it simple, no crazy alluring name or elaborate bottle and packaging. (Although, not going to lie, I’ve been a sucker for both of those things in the past)

He did a color match and found Warm Beige was the winner. I bought a bottle and left the store really happy with the quick test makeup he’d applied.$feed$

I LOVE it. Seriously, I don’t swoon over products very often but this one is swoon-worthy. To the point where I’d confidently say if you need a light-coverage foundation, you need to try this. I’ve been using it for a solid week now and can’t seem to find a thing wrong with it. You’ll notice there’s been an update here, to my everyday product list. This one is going to stick around for a while.

DiorSkin Nude Foundation: Love/Hate Relationship

Ladies, I’ve wanted to write this post for a long time. It’s a long-standing issue I’ve had with my (so far) favorite foundation. I’ve been using the DiorSkin foundation for over a year and love it. It’s a great match for my skin, it delivers the perfect amount of coverage and it never looks too matte or chalky. However, there’s one big reason why it doesn’t deserve a permanent spot in my makeup drawer. 

After using a bottle for 2-3 months, it becomes chunky and granular when it comes out of the bottle. (See photo below) I have taken it back to Sephora for replacement bottles three times now because I just love the stuff, but it never lasts more than three months. Is that because you’re supposed to replace your foundation that often? Is it because Dior wants you to replace your bottle? I have no idea. But every single time, without fail, it becomes clumpy.

So ladies: what foundation should I replace it with? I’m really considering Guerlain Lingerie de Peau but what others would be worthy tests? Let me know in the comments!
