How to Use
Rated 4.23 out of 5 stars
I used an ELF primer underneath as my base. I used a brush to blend it out first, then buffed it out with a blending sponge. I found if I only used the sponge it took longer to buff and blend out the foundation. I have tried setting it with (Covergirl Olay) powder and I have tried not setting it at all. It takes around 20 minutes to settle into the skin. After that it has a silky kind of texture similar to Tarte Amazonian clay stick foundation. Overall, I like how it moisturizes my skin and doesn't patch up. I work in a procedural area in a hospital. My mask did take off some of the product around my nose but it was not very noticeable. It just seems like I use a lot of product when I apply. I have been testing its use out for a week and using it every single day means I would need to buy a stick about once a month. My use this week was daily. I used about 2 grams of product. It has some vitamin benefits in it that help prevent my skin from drying out. It was very easy to use. It is great for travel and doesn't take up a lot of room. Very fair cool is the color I bought. I when it first goes on it looks a little pale, but it did oxidize a little and matched my skin tone. I would suggest trying the shades out in the store in person and seeing how they react with the air. Overall I am satisfied with this product and It is a more reasonably priced foundation if you are looking for something similar to Tarte's stick foundation.
I bought these in 3 different shades in order to use for contouring. I saw a youtube video of someone who used them. I bought one of each of these: medium, medium tan, and deep. Anyways. The medium was perfect for my skin tone. The others though were very orangey. Like fake tan orangey. The stick is also extremely creamy. No pressure and it rubs off. Which was great at first but even after applying a powder contour and setting powder over it, it stayed feeling heavy and wet all day. It felt even heavier after the natural oils start coming through and if I even touched my face, I could feel how heavy it was. I tried it again with minimal application but the same result. This product is best for someone with very dry skin. I wouldn't recommend the darker shades but who knows. Maybe someone does need some orange tones. Either way, I returned these and ended up getting the tarte shape tape concealers.

The coverage from this tiny stick of foundation is amazing. It feels great on the skin. The color match was perfect. Amazing product for the price. I will be buying again! Just wish it contained SPF, then it'd be perfect in my book.

I was finally able to find a great foundation match which makes me so happy. To be honest I didn't have many expectations for this foundation stick but I'm so glad I decided to buy it. It is so creamy and easy to blend and it feels lightweight and hydrating. I have combination skin and some texture but this foundation doesn't emphasize any of that or my pores. I use a hydrating primer spray pore-filling primer beforehand and set with powder. It's my new daily go-to foundation.

Couldn't find the exact shade I needed so I blend two.
I really like it though and will continue to purchase it
Currently trying different primers under and over the foundation
Be sure to clean you face before bed to keep your pores healthy, which you should be doing anyway :)

This is actually a pretty decent little foundation stick. The first 3 times I tried it, I didn't like it, AT ALL. Your skin definitely needs prep work prior to use. No dryness, it will totally amplify any patches of dryness you have, even with a primer. Honestly, I found this works best without a primer. The lasting power is great. I fell asleep with this on for 3 hours and it barely had any transfer. I'm incredibly fair and I was totally impressed with the shade and undertone. (I'm fair, lightest with neutral/cool undertones). Most light foundations have a yellow undertones, these offered true neutral undertone.

I brought this on a whim. I am just in love with it, and I have used so many different brands. This is affordable as well as it works! It blends very well, and I don't need to keep reapplying.

This foundation stick really surprised me, it offers some great coverage and is very blendable at a great price point. My intention was to use it as a contour but it turns out that I am just so fair that the Very Fair Cool shade is a perfect match for me. Even with it not working for my original intention, I am pleased with it enough to keep it for quick make up days.

I have this in two shades (winter and summer) and love how easily it glides on - I use a foundation brush and a bit of facial mist to blend. It doesn't cake up and stays put all day. Extra plus; the contents are made in Japan; known for their quality cosmetics. I stock up when they are on sale.

Really great product. Absolutely loved it the first time I tried it!
Reed from Indianapolis, IN
I used this product twice, and both times it left my face a greasy disaster after a few hours. It didn't feel uncomfortable or heavy, but my face looked very oily. I have combo/oily skin. I think this would work much better for someone who has drier skin than me. I like how easy it was to apply and blend.
Heidi from Florida
My absolute favorite foundation. I hope its never discontinued. Gives a flawless look . I apply directly over face and blend with a foundation brush ! Smooth look never blotchy looove it . Medium neutral on my medium to olive skin.
Chevotah from nebraska
Best foundation I have ever used! It blends easily and looks so natural. LOTS of shades. NEVER EVER will be cakey. Sometimes I set with powder and sometimes I don't. For a cream stick foundation, it is very moisturizing where most stick foundations look cakey, this does not.I love it. No flakey skin!
Jstu from PA
So far so good! I was looking for stick foundation & didn't want to break the bank! I blended it with my fingers and I like the way it looks; it doesn't feel too heavy!

I purchased this to try a stick foundation for a 1st time. I had read reviews and thought I had made a bad choice after the fact. Well it works for me. The color I chose was also perfect. Would repurchase.
Sam from MA
I loveeee this foundation!! I will buy over and over and over again. Nothing else works for me but this stick!!
enska from Minnesota
I love this foundation. Stick format is my favorite. I've been having trouble matching because I didn't understand undertones, but I finally got it right and ordered Light Neutral. Perfect match!! I have dry skin and this formula is great. It somehow blurs my pores quite well even with no prep/primer. I was pretty pleased.

Ms V from Columbus, GA
I use this for full coverage and it doesn't take much. A little goes a long way. Can use fingers or sponge to apply. I've never been a fan of liquid and I'm very happy that I've found this. I'm normally in the medium beige range, but found that I really like the Medium Tan Warm for summer shade. Also bought Medium Warm for my winter shade.
