Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder Foundation (Warm Beige) Review

When I mention the brand Bobbi Brown, the famous Gel Eyeliner always comes to mind!  Next, I would probably say, their liquid foundation (they are really good!)  I realized, I never tried any powder foundation from Bobbi Brown!  So when I got my hands on their newest Skin Weightless Powder Foundation last year, I knew I had to give this a try because I am a powder foundation gal!

And it doesn't hurt that this is called "Weightless", who doesn't like weightless makeup?  I know I do!

I was told by Bobbi Brown staff that the powder shade is a bit unique so you really need to test it on your cheeks and neck before you pick the right shade for you!

I got myself a Warm beige shade because I like my foundation a shade darker than my face to match my neck!

Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder Foundation says ---

Skin Weightless Powder Foundation begins as a creamy liquid and powder blend that’s baked for 12 hours. This advanced slurry technology combines the softest and lightest-weight powders, swirled into an emulsion like formula that feels weightless and maintains moisture for an “unpowdered” look and natural matte finish. The result is a powder foundation that’s light and creamy—the perfect balance between comfortable texture and healthy skin finish. Skin Weightless Powder Foundation seamlessly melts onto skin, blurring imperfections and pores for a natural-looking complexion. Plus, coverage stays fresh and true all day through sweat and humidity. Available in a sleek compact so you can look flawless—even on the go.

In the Philippines, you have 8 shades to choose from/ Worldwide 20 shades

  • Packaging.  I am in love with the sleek black packaging.
  • The powder is indeed lightweight!  You don't feel like you have makeup on.
  • Blends into skin seamlessly, I look like myself!  Without the obvious powder finish.
  • Buttery-smooth powder that is very easy to blend.  
  • Can be layered for better coverage.
  • Works for all skin types!  
  • Does not flake, cake or sit on pores!
  • None of the white cast if you picked the right shade.
  • 8 shades to choose from!

    • Coverage may not be enough if you need to cover extreme redness or undereye darkness.
    • Oily skin users may need to touch up midday as oil-control isn't that of a heavy duty.
    • Bobbi Brown is doing great in creating spot-on warm based foundation that works for most Asians. 
    A smooth powder foundation that can be layered for more coverage!  It never appears cake-y and gives a natural effect.


    • For better coverage, use your favorite liquid/cream foundation first and use the Bobbi Brown Skin weightless Powder Foundation as setting powder.
    • For more coverage, use the sponge and apply with a patting motion.
    • Used as setting powder, pick up a big fluffy brush and gently roll the sides of the brush all over your face.
    • If you bought the wrong shade, you can always adjust by wearing a lighter or darker foundation underneath.
    Will I repurchase?

    To whom do I recommend this to?
    Normal/combination and dry skin users may give this powder a try!  If you have extremely oily skin, it is okay to use this powder as long as you don't mind touching up midday!

    Warm Beige applied at the back of my hand.
    The shade melts into my skin making it look like I'm not wearing any makeup at all!

    Differences (Encircled for your convenience)
    My skin looks like "my skin", the effect is very natural and you don't see any presence of powder at all!  What I love about the Skin Weightless Powder (aside from how it feels weightless) is how it can samrtly cover some red spots around the sides of my nose and cheeks!  It lessens (but not totally cover) undereye darkness which is fine by me because I love to apply concealer prior to powder foundation application.
