    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Play Sticks:

    Pretty good but you need to apply a powder to set. It doesn't seem to stay on long and won't cover up my light melasma for very long. Last around 3-4 hours for full coverage after that u will need to reapply.

            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Play Sticks:

            I Love stick foundations. I had used Mac's sticks in the past and when I ran out I bought maybelline's fit to hold me over then decided to try play sticks as an upgrade. I figured for the price it'd be an upgrade from the fit stick but it had the same texture, lasted just as long then after a few days I started breaking out. I didn't even think it was the play stick until after a few weeks of using it and continued breaks out as well as my skin drying out. I read some reviews and realized other users had the same issue so I stopped using it and my skin started to clear up. So don't waste your money or risk your skin.

                      A:

                      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.

                    Will this product settle in deep wrinkles? Is it recommended for aging skin 60 and over? Do you need a finishing powder with Play Sticks? Will this product look natural? Thanks!

                      A:

                      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.

                  • Q:

                    Will it give full coverage? I am looking for something that gives full coverage. In the past I had been using Loreal Quick stick foundation, which has been discontinued now. After that I have tried so many foundation sticks but haven't found like that.
