Blends nicely, medium coverage

Pros

  • Blends Well

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Light To Medium Coverage

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Play Sticks:

    I'm a fair-skinned red head with many, many freckles... I need sheer coverage so that some freckles show through or else I look quite odd. This foundation stick has a little more coverage than I'd like and I'm not so sure the stick format is my favorite... I feel like it requires a lot of effort to blend appropriately. So I'm not sure I'd buy this again. (I much prefer the "some kind of gorgeous" product better, but it's hard to come by and runs out quick). Otherwise it feels fine on my skin. It's just a so-so product for me.

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Play Sticks:

        Love the product and will buy again because it has such great coverage. It's great for all day coverage. The only downside is the product itself does not have a lot in it. I went thru 1 tube in just under 3 months. The product I used before lasted at least 6 months, but not as great of a coverage.

                  This product is great! I don't like spending too much time putting on make-up so this is all concealer, foundation and powder to me. The only thing i would complain about is because it is a stick, when applied directly to the skin I have to smooth and blend out the product a lot with my handy dandy beauty blender. I'm not a professional make-up artist but I used to apply it with a foundation brush, from the stick to the skin but I felt that a lot of the product was left on the brush. Honestly though, I don't think I would change it. I was sooooo happy that they came up with jump rope for us medium toned gals. Before they only had the light one and dark.

                      I bought this product on a whim to cover dark spots on my face. It does a good job and stays on the entire day. Will definitely purchase again. It's a bit costly that's the only downfall.

                        I love this product but realize that they've narrowed down the color selection from what it once was. If I used "Paper Doll" shade before, would you recommend I go with the light or medium color now?

                          Hi gorgeous!

                          "Paper doll" was a light ivory shade. "Spin the bottle" is a light beige and is the lightest shade of play sticks available. If "spin the bottle" is too dark for you, check out our hello flawless oxygen wow liquid foundation in petal or champagne! This oil-free brightening liquid foundation builds from light to medium coverage for a natural complexion you can believe in.

                          Benefit does not test for or claim that their products are hypo-allergenic (least likely to cause an allergic reaction) or non-comedogenic (does not cause pimples & blackheads). If you have a specific allergy, please consult your physician to determine if a product is suitable for your skin.

                          Benefit Play Sticks is formulated with a long wearing, stay-put formula, so that it should not settle into fine lines or wrinkles. It is suitable for skin of any age, and using finishing powder is optional. This product is blendable with a satin-matte finish for a totally natural look.
