Review : Bobbi Brown Brightening Powder Compact Foundation SPF 25 PA+++

I have been loving this since Feb '13, I just realized that I haven't post a review about it. Why oh why?

I actually wanted to buy the corrector ONLY but somehow I ended up buying this too. Well, that kinda thing do happens every now and then so just prepare yourself. :P

This compact powder is one of the products in the Bobbi Brown's Brightening Collection. I think the range is inclusive of 6 items including the compact powder.

I personally do not use liquid foundation. I only use BB Cream or CC Cream as my base. And I use powder foundation to set  my makeup because it gives the extra coverage to my face. You might think this is a bit odd or weird, but I really like the result of combining those two.

Formulated with Vitamin C complex and natural extracts such as grape, mulberry and scutellaria extracts to help diminish the appearance of dark spots and provoding the skin with clarity luminosity and radiance. It also contains natural minerals that helps to minimize the appearance of uneven skin tone and reflect light for a flattering glow.

Please don't mind the dirty sponge, I do wash it whenever I clean my brush but the stain is a bit hard to remove.

I got the shade in Natural. I've been using it since February everytime when I do my makeup but I still haven't hit pan.

Can you see the difference? This is only a thin layer, can you see how the colour matches my skin perfectly? I can definitely see the brightening effect.

Bought at : Bobbi Brown, One Utama. You can basically buy it at any other outlet.

RM Damage : RM160 for the refill, RM40 for the case.

Why I love it :
1. It's a long wear foundation because it controls my combination skin for good 5 - 6 hours.
2. It does not look cakey.
3. I usually use it with my BB or CC Cream, but when I use it on its own, it does give a  decent coverage with brightening effect. I do notice some sort of a glow to my skin.
4. The shade matches me perfectly.
5. Multi task product because I can use it as foundation or as setting powder.
6. It has SPF 25 PA+++

What I don't like about it :
1. I get it that it's a high end brand hence I don't mind the price but please do something about the casing. I paid RM40 for the casing and the Bobbi Brown wording has already started coming off. The casing looks cheap, that's all. Improvised!

Repurchase : Yes.
