Most Helpful Positive Review I would buy again, blends so well
So I've heard a lot about this brand through Instagram and wanting to support more black owned businesses plus all the positive things I've heard I wanted to give it a try. Looking through the reviews I see that they're pretty mixed but for me personally I really like it. I sometimes I have a hard time finding the proper shade for me because I'm light-skinned so either the foundation makes me look like I have a weird tan or way too white but I got shade stick in Bolivia and it is one of the best color matches I have ever had. it Blends seamlessly also a little definitely goes a long way. I have dry skin and sometimes foundations will leave me with dry flaky spots but unlike what I've read some people say I had no issues with that which I love . The only thing is the other color that I got as my Contour I wish I actually had gone a bit darker because they're mid shades actually seem to look lighter than they do in the pictures so I would recommend if you're getting one to do your Contour to maybe go as far as four or five Shades Darker than your foundation color.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for me.
I wanted to give this product a decent shot. I am 27 years old and I have very dry, very sensitive skin (just as a disclaimer). I purchased this foundation stick in store. I've heard great things about Juvia's eyeshadow pigments and the affordability of this line alone was enough to bait me into a purchase. I bought the stick in shade Tokyo. Here's what I've decided:
-The formula is, at first, creamy and smooth and easy to apply. With a wet blender I was able to achieve a nice sheer coverage not unlike BB creams and balms- which are my preferred coverage.
- Appears dewy and velvety at first glance.
- I applied a light veil of finishing powder to set my makeup and INSTANTLY saw cakey/flakey spots on my forehead.
- Cakey/flakey condition just worsens throughout the duration of wear.
I KNOW that I have dry skin, I know that my skin is sensitive and needs to be babied a lot. With that being said, I can dump literally EVERY moisturizer in my arsenal onto my face. I can keep a wonderful regimen for my skin, and it will look dewy and healthy. The SECOND i put this foundation on: all of that hard-work is out the window. It is drying, I literally have rough spots that are flaking off of my face after only a few hours of wear.
I would not recommend this product to anyone with dry or sensitive skin. It will not do you any favors.

Tried this as a full face and instantly sunk into my fine lines/expression lines on my forehead. As for a contour stick though this does the job!!
I will buy this product again

Monica from Milwaukee
I could not recommend this product unfortunately. I do enjoy the brand overall!
Not for oily skin!!
Hannah m from Texas
Super sticky and not in a good way, looks really cakey. I'm a big fan of Juvias place liquid foundation so I thought I'd like this one as well and I was very wrong , it is also very hard to blend in with skin and looks terrible with powder. Will be returning.
This is definitely a win for me!
Karle from Fresno
So I bought two shades, Barcelona and Lima. I knew Lima would be lighter and would be good for winter, and Barcelona would be great for summer. Due to COVID I couldn't try it in stores but it matches perfectly. Because it is a stick foundation I was weary (I've never used stick foundation before) but I love it! I don't like my face to feel caked or heavy and this product feels so light and looks great on my skin!!
Ema from AZ
Super easy to blend and matches my skin tone perfectly and medium coverage, so far my favorite foundation ever!!
Whitters from Rialto, CA
I use this for cream contour and it's beautiful! Very creamy and easy to blend.
Axel from Utah
I used with a brush and it was beautiful and even and very very full coverage
SO CREAMY pigmented and blendable
Makeup mama from Atlanta
This has got to be the best stick foundation I've ever used! It's blends like a dream and does not give me a grey cast. It's beautiful for contouring as well and you only need a little bit of product so I know this will last me a long time.
My new holy grail!
ChiChiR from Louisiana
This is now my holy grail foundation. I am 47 with fine lines, melasma and some broken capillaries on my cheeks. I also have a tricky skin tone and I've struggled FOR YEARS to find a decent shade match. This brand nailed it!! The formula is so customizable and can be as sheer or as opaque as needed. i can apply it lightly all over then spot conceal where needed. And it looks like skin. I am now that person that will order back ups to keep on hand! LOVE!!!
Jrain from Boston,MA
The product arrived broken, and it smeared all around the tube and inside of the box. Because I touched and I was able to see the consistency, which Was pretty thick.
Liv from NC
Came broken and doesn't blend evenly
Leodiva73 from Maryland
I was excited to buy this foundation stick. I got the color Jacmel. couldn't wait to use it. I was so disappointed because it oxidized so bad on me making me look orange and oily I want to try a lighter color but dont want to waste my money when my black opal foundation stick is cheaper and is the bomb. I also got the foundation in Punta Cana but scared to try it. I am open to any suggestion because of covid I can't test any other colors!
Dani from Orange County, CA
My new favorite contour stick. I would definitely look at the different shades on the Ulta App to see all the colors and shades. I determined which one I should get based on the short description it had. I'm using it as a contour stick so I got it in the shade Brasilia. I have medium beige skin. It gives creamy warmth to my skin and it goes on smoothly. Overall it lasts the whole day and performs great.
Love it! from Texas
I love mixing the two shades I received. Love the Dewey look and the coverage! Stands up pretty well to this Texas heat too. I love how my blush just blends in so well.
Booskie from MICHIGAN

makeupbar from USA
I blend this in with my fingers and the result is beautiful.
Why would t it be awesome?!?!?
Liz from San Antonio, Tx
You don't need to pound this product on, after awhile it becomes cakey* I use under my eyes because I live in Tx, and a whole face makes no sense...also a whole face just dirties my mask! Over all this product is awesome, and I would recommend for people of color
Excellent medium coverage stick
Scorpiojas from NC
Easy to blend and pretty good color match.
Excellent foundation for me, am very fair.
Stefanie from Boca Raton, FL
Apply with a sponge all over face and set with finishing powder.
Kait from Lexington
Used this as a cream contour, maybe that was my problem. I can't imagine it would be any better as concealer.
irene from massachusetts
I love that it doesn't take much to cover your whole face, and you can make it look more natural or more glam depending on how much you use. It looks beautiful but doesn't feel great on the skin, it is very greasy and probably not the best for oily skin.
This is the best foundation stick I've found!
Missi from Alpharetta, GA
Love this foundation stick! My shade is Zambia and it is a perfect match! It gives me a beautiful, dewy, natural skin finish and last all day!
pretty good! combo skin review
lavender from CA
got mine in shade Manila and it matched pretty well. Got Boliva to highlight and it looks nice! slips and slides if you don't set it with Powder. my skin tends to be more on the dry side but I can have an oily T zone sometimes. overall good! in juleps 5-1 complexion stick I am 220 Sand for reference. I am more neutral with some warmth to my skin.
