I normally buy all of my make up at Sephora but I saw this in a local grocery store and decided to give it a try. It is unique with the powder center and wet foundation in the stick (which is a great concept. It has a semi small variety of shades but I did find one that matches my skin perfectly.
When using this product I applied a solid line around my forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin. I was absolutely amazed of how it sat on my skin and rubbed in for a natural look. It covered my dark circles and acne perfectly. You can’t even tell you’re wearing any foundation because it is so natural looking. Over the course of the day it did not run or sweat off, it stayed on my face with no problem. It was gentle and didn’t cause any allergies. My skin remained smooth and not oily all day. At the end of the day when I washed my face, it all came off and did not seem to clog my pores.
It is definitely worth a try, especially if you have difficulty finding the right foundation or skin difficulties. The price is just right too. I absolutely love this foundation stick and will probably switch to this one specifically. I have extremely oily skin and this stick worked perfectly, there was no struggle between the foundation and my skin. It does only come in a small variety of shades but I think it blends so well that it isn’t a problem.
