I think most Pinays would dub the good ol' Cream Foundation as their least favorite foundation variant. Why? Because there's this notion that it looks unnatural, feels heavy, and will most likely clog pores. Sadly, most of these are true that's why cream foundation remains quite underrated. Oh, if only a majority of Filipinas can take advantage of this foundation's unbeatable coverage! But then again, comfort should be our utmost priority!
Hmmm..Maybe with Bobbi Brown's Long-Wear Even Finish Compact Foundation, many Pinays would change their minds and can finally experience the benefits of cream foundation. :)
BOBBI BROWN LONG-WEAR EVEN FINISH COMPACT FOUNDATION IN HONEY IN DETAIL
According to Bobbi Brown, this product is just a pressed version of the liquid one, but I beg to differ because its consistency is very much different from the latter already. It's formulated with the Film Former technology which makes it ultra flexible, comfortable, and light despite the heavy coverage. It's also oil- free and water- based, and claims to hold up for up to 12 hours.
Product comes in a fuss- free, chic compact that's thick and solid enough to protect the product from accidental falls. The sponge has very good quality, and you can use it if you want to sport light coverage.
More about this lightweight cream foundation after the jump!
It comes in 21 shades, but I doubt that we have everything here because shade selections vary per region. For morena gals, Warm Beige or Honey suits us best.
Traditional cream foundations are oil- based, thus they feel heavy and a lil' thick, but this one is completely devoid of oil that's why it's super light and feels just like cloud on skin. Coverage is medium to heavy and finish is matte, but not flat matte. Since it doesn't contain oil-the main ingredient that gives cream foundation that slip-you'd have to warm it up for a little to spread it easily.

One commendable thing about this product is it looks very, very natural. Finish is just like skin and doesn't make you feel as if there's a pound of foundation on your face even if you layer it on. It can cover light to dark discolorations, fill in fine lines, but not that effective when it comes to concealing prominent face bumps. I also noticed that it can tame dry areas.
How's the staying power, you ask? Incredible. It lasts all throughout the day with zero creasing and fading. It has very good oil control and doesn't cake on dry areas during wear. I can go out and walk under the sun and I don't feel as if my foundation's coagulating and melting in the heat!
With this product, there's no reason to fear cream foundation any longer! I believe this is specifically made for tropical areas, therefore I recommend it to all Filipinas, especially those who are in dire need of extra coverage from foundation, but sans the "thick" look and feel.
