Yes, we went to the outlets again, and I did some damages to my wallet. At the Cosmetic Store Company, I hauled a few items for myself and also for my friends. This Bobbi Brown extra repair foundation caught my attention as I sampled it at the back of my hand.
At $38.50, it's not ridiculously cheap, but comparing to a hefty $55 at Neiman Marcus department store, $38.50 for 30 ml of product seems very reasonable!
Though the description of this product said this is for dry or very dry skin, and while I have combination skin, I experience dryness during times I have allergies.
This product is a thick cream with a lovely scent to it (actually I found out later from the ingredients list that this nice scent comes from natural fragrance oils like primrose, rosemary, etc...) I am really loving this scent!
The color I picked is in 2 Sand. Swatching it at the back of my hand:
Spreading it outwards, it seems a little light at this point:
Fully blended into my skin, the repair foundation matches the color of my skintone pretty well.
And a little bit of this repair foundation goes a long way. So the 30ml jar will last a long time!
