I got a chance to test out two of Bobbi Brown’s best selling products, so I immediately jumped at the opportunity to review them here. I received Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick in 4.5 Warm Natural ($50 online, in Sephora, Murale and Holt Renfrew) and Corrector in Peach ($30) and have been using them for a week so it’s time for a closer look.
Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick in 4.5 Warm Natural / Corrector in Peach
The Foundation Stick in Warm Natural has strong golden undertones, and so it warms up and brightens my complexion nicely. It’s a great match for my skin because I am on the yellow side of the spectrum. It’s been a while since I have used a cream foundation, and so I can certainly tell that this feels heavier than the lightweight liquid foundations I’ve tried of late. It is an incredibly versatile formula; it can be sheered out by using a wet sponge (I used a damp Beauty Blender) or can be applied as a creamy full-coverage concealer. It’s no wonder that Bobbi Brown recommends it for everyone’s purse. It lasts an exceptionally long time, easily wearing through a normal work day.
The Corrector in Peach is fantastic for cancelling out darkness under my eyes and around my mouth. This is a hard but creamy formula (say what?!), and needs to be set with a powder in order to stay in place. I think it is the perfect base for a concealer. I know my favourite under eye concealer, NARS Radiant Creamy, will look even more radiant on top of Peach Corrector.

So the first thing I do is draw a warrior mask on my face with the Bobbi Foundation Stick. 😉 You can also pick up product from the tube on to your brush, but this is how I use it with a Beauty Blender sponge. I concentrate around the nose, mouth, and cheeks area where I need the most coverage.
I’m a warrior. RAWR!
Once that’s blended, I dot the product on areas that need more coverage (blemishes and redness). I pat that in with my finger.
I then apply the Corrector in Peach under and the corners of my eyes.

The Foundation Stick doesn’t set on the skin and feels tacky after application, so a light dusting of powder is definitely recommended. You can see that my skin looks very dewy with the Foundation Stick and Corrector alone.
Without powder / With Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light (review)
I know it’s not meant to be a setting powder, but I love to set my makeup with Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light all over my face for a little extra sumthin’ sumthin’. I think these products go so well together, don’t you think?
Me? Wearing makeup? Nah. 😉
