        First of all, "cashmere" means diffuse, natural finish and not a traditional matte texture. This foundation becomes one with your skin's surface without flattening out facial dimensions like a normal matte foundation. Your skin will look like your skin, but with a softer focus.

        Second, this really is a long-wear formulation. If you think you can wash off this powder foundation with just soap and water, you are in for a surprise during the toner step. Take this off your face like the long-wear foundation that it is. I can't speak for how water-proof or sweat-proof just yet, but I did make it through a humid, drizzly afternoon without needing to reapply.

        Also, different application methods will produce different results. A powder brush will give a light-coverage fluffy powder finish. The sponge provided or a make-up wedge leaves behind the diffuse, natural finish at light-to-medium coverage (which is how it looks best). A heavier application will bring a truer matte. A moisturizer or a sunscreen can be used underneath this foundation, but this can make the finish more natural than matte. I like using sponges with a light swiff across a general area and then firm pats to set it down. Patting helps reduce the appearance of pores. True to BB tradition, this foundation also photographs wonderfully.

        My happy discovery is that this is my new favorite setting powder for the BB corrector/concealers. I like using this as a true-to-skin-tone setting powder that increases the opacity of my corrector/concealer as opposed to a sheer, general toned one.

        Overall, the worse thing I can think of to say about this foundation is that may not be the best choice for mature skin. Dehydration, lines, and roughness are neither hidden or forgiven, but it won't make them look any worse. In the fine lines around the eyes or mouth, the foundation (by itself) hasn't created brittle creases or caked on me the same way other powder-finish foundations have before. People with oily skin may not be able to maintain the diffuse foundation texture for long without reapplying. Again, I struggle to think of real criticisms about this product that are within the scope of its design.

        I am really glad I gave this powder foundation a chance. It does exactly what it is advertised to do and even more if you try it as a new setting powder option.

        Im using the illuminating finish powder compact foundation previously and really dissapointed when it is discontinue. The powder make my face so natural like no make up at all but just look better. When i my foundation ran out i replace it with skin weightless powder. To be honest, i still prefer the illuminating powder. That powder more weightless on skin compare to this so call weightless powder, somewhat the color doesnt match my skin perfectly. When im using, it does look my face grey. When i change to 1 tone deeper than my first purchase, it turn my face darker than actual. Beside, this powder also make my face more oily and when touch up it become ugly. Everytime i use this powder it will bring acne to my face. I need to buy more disposle sponge to avoid acne but still cane out. I need to alot wash my face. Bobbi, if you read this, please im begging you bring back the illuminating finish powder!!

        The Best BB Foundation for Oily Skin

        By 

        from Kentucky

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder Foundation:

        Absolutely love this product especially for oily skin. I've pretty much tried all BB foundations including the newest Skin Long Wear Weightless Foundation and find myself coming back to this one. I use this as a foundation and not a setting powder because for me it provides the most beautiful, natural finish. I get compliments everytime I have it on. I use the vitamin enriched face base underneath and then apply it with the full coverage brush. A little setting powder, bronzer and blush and you're good to go!

        I'm in love with this foundation. I've never found another product that leaves the skin feeling light and free, but looking polished with full coverage.

        I CANT LIVE WITHOUT IT

        By 

        from Washington, DC

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder Foundation:

        I've been buying this non stop for 3 years. It works wonders. I have psoriasis which makes any foundation look flakey on my face, this does not. Goodbye dark circles and pores! Maybe all of these ladies who break theirs have a VERY heavy hand or maybe they drop their compacts, but mine only ever crumbles when the compact gets very close to being empty.

        Loved it, but it ended up breaking up in so many small pieces. It wasn't salvageable. :(

        Nice for touching up

        By 

        from Grass Valley

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder Foundation:

        This is a very light foundation. I actually bought it because my face has been going through a very oily period. It is a beautiful light smooth powder, typical from BB to have a silky soft perfect powder. I use it on days I don't need a lot of coverage. And also really great for touching up in between.

        Lightweight

        By 

        from Tampa, FL

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder Foundation:

        Have been using this product for over a year now and absolutely love it. I will put it over my liquid foundation for a full coverage or where it on its own. I always keep the clear plastic insert in place when not using it and have never had an issue with it breaking. I have oil/ dry skin and this works great for absorbing oil in the afternoon and never leaves my skin feeling greasy. The only thing that I wish this product had was SPF. Many of the other BB products have SPF in them and when I wear this foundation on its own I wish it offered some protection.

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder Foundation:

        I love BB products. I love the powder but after my second purchase of this powder it broke into pieces so easily shortly after purchasing. I prefer a pressed powder, and I wish there were other options as I love the BB products

        Like the foundation but falls apart fast

        By 

        from Toronto, ON, Canada

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder Foundation:

        The colour and texture of this powder but the powder broke into pieces shortly after I bought it and eventually broke into even smaller pieces as I continued to use it. You cannot continue to use it once it breaks or cracks because it breaks even further and the little pieces get stuck in my foundation brush. I was very disappointed because I love BB products, have been using them for years, and switched to this instead of a loose powder.

        Nice powder, poor quality

        By 

        from Budapest, Hungary

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder Foundation:

        This was my first Bobbi Brown purchase and I was excited to start using the powder foundation right away! Unfortunately this is not a product I would recommend. The powder and case are extremely delicate. I've been using it for a month now and during a recent trip I opened my case and the powder was broken into several pieces, I had other makeup in my case nothing else was broken. For the price and longevity of the product I would not recommend.
