Bobbi Brown – Skin Long-wear Weightless Foundation with SPF 15 in Porcelain

Hi everyone!!!

Welcome back to I Am Serene L!!! I’m so glad to be back and sharing with you all another beauty product review, but before that I’ve made a whole load of changes to the layout of my blog … So please check it out and tell me what you think of the new style on I Am Serene L, I wanted a fresh layout for the New year and hope you all love the work I put into the blog ๐Ÿ™‚ย <3

Now onto the good stuff! I am going to be reviewing the NEW Bobbi Brown Skin Long-wear Weightless Foundation with SPF 15 in the shade Porcelain (the shade I swatched and matched me to perfection)!!! I picked up a sample of the foundation a couple of weeks ago to trial at a Bobbi Brown store, and immediately fell in love with the colour and the coverage so much so that I ended up buying the full size!!! I went for this one, as I have oily skin, and the Skin Long-wear Weightless Foundation is aimed for oily skin types!!!

The New Bobbi Brown Skin Long-wear Weightless foundationย comes in 30 shades, so you’ll definitely find a shade that will match your skin tone! through testing out the colours, the colour that matched my skin tone was the shade Porcelain & it colour matched my skin tone to perfection!!!

I can’t believe how amazing, how incredible, how smart this foundation is! I’ve never tried a foundation from Bobbi Brown before, and this was my first Bobbi Brown Foundation purchase, but I’ve always been a fan of the brand, as the quality of the beauty products I’ve bought in the past have never disappointed me!!!







From a price perspective, yes this one is a pricey one, priced at ยฃ34.00… but well worth it, and I’ve tried some drug store alternatives that are a fraction of the price, but believe me they are not as special as this one. If you have oily skin this one is perfect for you! The Bobbi Brown Skin Long-wear Weightless Foundation blends into your skin with ease (but you have to be quick with blending as the foundation mattes on your skin in about 10 seconds), so you need to blend quickly. But on the plus side once it dries it dries soft matte on your skin, and non drying at all, and a little pump of the foundation will last a verrrrrry long time. I can use one pump of the foundation for a full coverage on my face, so it’s absolutely pigmented and a little goes a long way. I also love the fact that it’s liquidy when you dispense the product and once you transfer and blend it into the skin it mattes to perfection!!! and after this the following makeup will blend with ease on your face, without any problems or streaking!!! I love the formula for the Skin Long-wear Weightless Foundation and love that it includes SPF 15 to help protect your face against the sun ๐Ÿ˜€ as well!!

You’ll get about 16 Hours + wear out of this foundation as it says on the website, with minimal signs of oil build up, but I believe more realistically it will prevent oil formation for about 10 hours, but after that you’ll only need to lightly touch up your skin. I use my Inglot Freedom System Mattifying Pressed powder, you can check the review here! Or I use my NYX – Fresh Face Blotting Papers to dab away the excess oil build up, especially on my T-zone. You can also check out that review here!

The packaging is even a beautiful matte finished bottle with a pump dispenser, and I love the fact that the bottle is Matte, and the bottle is transparent to see the foundation colour & content, and the Bobbi Brown packaging always looks sleek and professional, I love the black typography and black and white outer packaging on the box!

Heres a swatch of the Shade Porcelain before, and once you slightly blend it into the skin. It’s better to colour match the foundation or your neck rather than your hand for a truer colour match!!!


All in all, I definitely recommend the Bobbi Brown Skin Long-wear Weightless Foundation with SPF 15 asย it is a long lasting, full coverage foundation that offers oil control, and perfectly aimed for those with oily skin types like myself for an easy to wear Matte foundation for the everyday!!!

    1. Ahhh you really need to get this one Rachel!!! You will not be disappointed! it’s incredible and so long lasting :D!!! and it works perfectly for oily skin ๐Ÿ˜€ xoxo

  1. Thank you for this review! I want to try this foundation so badly but I’m always scared of testing new foundations since my skin is a mess and finding an ideal foundation – pale, neutral shade & longlasting is really hard. Have a nice day ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. This will be amazing for pale / neutral skin tones babe :)! This foundation is definitely a recommendation of mine to try especially for oily skin. Thanks so much for the kind words ๐Ÿ™‚ xoxo

    1. Yeah itโ€™s a shame that this one works better on oily skin than dry skin! You can even mix it with a Moisturiser maybe to make it more adaptable to dry skin! Xoxo

    1. this one is so great, havenโ€™t tried any other foundation by them! But honestly this is one I recommend so so so much! Hope youโ€™ll give Bobbi Brown a chance again and give this one a go ๐Ÿ™‚ xoxo
