Bobbi Brown has reintroduced her iconic foundation stick so if you like the original, chances are you’re going to love the new one.

When it debuted in 1992, Bobbi’s foundation stick revolutionized the beauty industry as the first-ever skin tone correct foundation on the market with a creamy skin-like texture. Twenty two years later, Bobbi’s done it again with her new Skin Foundation Stick — an update of her iconic formula and packaging, modernized for better performance, wear and finish on skin.

The foundation has multiple layers of new elliptically shaped sheer natural mineral powders and color pigments that allow more light to penetrate, for more perfect, natural looking full coverage.

It glides onto the skin without drying or adding excess oil. Spherical powders give skin a natural-looking soft focus effect – skin texture looks flawless and the appearance of pores and fine lines are reduced, providing a natural, healthy finish. Silica, in combination with one of the spherical powders, diffuses light and camouflages the appearance of imperfections. And it moisturizes while controlling oil.

 Now available in four new shades — for a total of 24 shades. Cost: $44 at Bobbi Brown cosmetics counters.
