color accuracy

doesn't oxidize

just got this foundation the other day and i'm extremely impressed with it, i'm very pale and i was happy to see that it didn't oxidize and make me look orange, because i have that problem all the time, the texture and application is very good,it glides on smoothly and covers any of my spots, it is very dewy so i recommend using a setting power, after that it stays on your face all day, i highly recommend this product

- Tambeauty User

i have tried rimmel foundations which are too pink and maybelline fit me turns orange but this is perfect and works really well with the concealer in the shade c1

weight

heavy

this foundation stick was horrible to blend, it did not matter if i used a brush or sponge, it was very patchy and moved around, it was heavy in some areas and sheered out in others, it has a strange "greasiness" to it, that oil sheets couldn't even get rid of

- Ulta User

it also felt really heavy on my skin after a while

- Ulta User

pore minimizing

not pore minimizing

very cakey it highlights all the pores and textures on your face - too thick of a consistency

- Beautybay User

after just a few hours it settles into every pore, line, and it creases bad

- Ulta User

creasing

creasing

it blends easily during application but settles in fine lines no matter how well you set it

finish

natural

ive been a high end foundation girl for many many years and after seeing popular beuaty youtubers rave about this foundation i thought what can it hurt so i tried it and fell in love it really is better than the majority of high end foundations and in photod and natural light my skin looks perfected and flawless with a beautiful luminosity that is not over done and wears nesrpy all day when i prep my skin

- Ulta User

it gives me a beautiful satin/dewey natural finish with pretty decent longevity when it comes to wear time (8+ hours) but it does transfer easily if not set with a powder

- Ulta User

coverage

medium coverage

i am loving this foundation, i have dry skin and this is perfect, ita has a dewy finish and it's medium to full coverage

- Beautybay User

i love this foundation it's like the too faced born this way but in a stick it's long wearing and has medium buildable coverage and is very lightweight and doesn't show texture

I really like this foundation stick! It’s quick and easy to use and blend. Great for a night out foundation, not so great for an all day foundation. Still love it! Great coverage and very buildable!

The best foundation I've ever tried.

This foundation has been phenomenal for my dry skin this winter. I have it in F10, which I worried would be too dark for my complexion, but since it doesn't oxidize, it's actually been perfect and even somewhat brightening. I use about three swipes per cheek, plus one small stripe on my forehead and one on my chin. Then I blend with a sponge. I also really like it with a primer underneath (currently using Maybelline's Hydrating one). That gets rid of any dry patches, especially on my chin area. I love how creamy and smooth the formula is and how flawlessly it blends. Used with the primer, it lasts all day on me and hasn't irritated my rosacea-prone skin at all. People tend to apply too much stick foundation, especially if they're transitioning from a liquid foundation (or so a sales associate at Ulta told me). I think she was right though. A little goes a long way. I've been really, really pleased with this one and would definitely stock up if it were ever discontinued. I suspect it might be too rich for hot humid weather, but for winter it's been superb. So comfortable and the coverage is fantastic even though it's very natural looking. Perfect 10! « less

Blown away.

I have had the most difficult time finding a good foundation and concealer to mask/hydrate my fine lines and visible pores around my nose (on the inner cheeks). I've tried everything from 18 different "pore-filling" and "perfecting" primers (LIARS) to adding argan oil to my foundation (surprisingly delicious, but still falls short). I grabbed this stick in a rush because it was quick and convenient and I genuinely thought it was a concealer stick. Imagine my shock and surprise when I dot it on my inner cheek area and it makes every single life vanish instantly 😱. Not only that, but it blended out like a full coverage foundation. That's when I looked closer at the product and discovered that I'd grabbed a full-coverage foundation stick and now my life will never be the same.I don't exactly need full-coverage, so I should be clear about the fact that for someone with high-pigmentation or severe blotchiness, this may not be the right product. But for me, having light freckles and mostly just wanting to even my skin tone and blur my pores and fine lines (turning 30 should prove exciting in the skincare department), this was exactly the product I was looking for.A lot of peeps in here complaining that it gets too greasy or doesn't last very long, or that it even breaks up throughout the day: exfoliate your skin, moisturize with an oil-free moisturizer, use a light primer (see: NOT a pore-filling primer; those are heavier), and then after application, use a damp beauty blender to get the excess product off. Dust on a light layer of finishing powder, then set it with a setting spray. This keeps it on for a minimum of 9 hours for me, and I touch my face a lot and have combination skin. Hope this helps!! « less

I wanted to love it but it's a hard pass

I really REALLY wanted to love this product. So many Youtube beauty gurus raved about this foundation, and I was so excited to try it. Now, to be fair, I am a liquid matte kind of girl because I have an oily t-zone (nothing too bad, though) and huge pores on my nose, but I gave this cream stick a chance. I gave it TWO chances in two totally different environments (outside in the Alabama summer and indoors in a cool office all day) and with combinations of multiple products. It just does not look good on my skin. It sat on top of my pores and accentuated them, and even made other pores that I don't normally have a problem with stand out! It settled into my smile lines so badly and the places where I get oily the most (my nose, forehead, and chin) looked SO bad and broken up and cakey. It felt heavy and thick, but I do have to say it was easy to blend out and the coverage was great, which is the only reason it's getting 2 stars instead of one. The shade match (F1) was absolutely perfect for me, too, so the fact that it just looks awful on my skin, which is pretty healthy other than a little oil and large nose pores, just disappointed me so badly. I may try just one more time, but I doubt I'll change my mind. « less

More than I was expecting for the price...

I honestly think this foundation is great, but do keep in mind when reviewing that not always are you going to get a cheap foundation to work for your skin so we need to be fair. This foundation does a great job for the $9 it costs, but I have good skin so texture isn't really an issue. I could see it being a problem for somebody with problematic skin because the foundation doesnt stay put if the zone isnt smooth (I hope that makes sense). Also, i find it very easy to apply if you use a wet beauty blender, I tried other sponges and it came out horrible like it sucked some of the product so the distribution didnt seem even, and with the brush it came out too heavy. I did use a primer, to help me stay more matte since I tend to get oily after a few hours. The foundation didn't stay completely matte, however, it didnt look greasy I looked like a very nice even glow which stayed for several hours even after I got out of work. So, to summarize... use a primer, and a beauty blender if you are struggling with making this work. I love it, and think I found my everyday foundation since using my double wear for everyday is a little too much.

Full coverage foundation for dryyyyy dry dry skin? Do you apply with a sponge or a brush? What brush/what sponge do you use?

I actually use a cream foundation for my dry skin. If you moisturize underneath and then apply and blend with a brush it works beautifully. The only issue is it can slide around some so you need to be careful not to touch your face too much. I have the most issues with slipping on my chin so I bake in that area. I use the Makeup Revolution one in shade F4 which is neutral for light skin tones and it fits me perfectly (why does no one make cool or neutral toned light colors? it took me three years to finally get a good match!).

Any recommendations for foundation for dry skin that covers blemishes, is breathable, and looks natural -non caked, non separating, works well with concealers.....and what primers and concealers do you use with them? #pleasehelp

Revolution foundation stick, (Ulta) it’s like $7 but it has a dewy and beautiful finish. moisturize before! Prep before you prime and apply foundation, use concealer if your blemishes shine through!

Combination Skin

I am looking for an inexpensive foundation stick to contour with that blends very well in the skin and it doesn’t look muddy. I wanted to try the Fenty Beauty Match Stick in Mocha but it is too expensive. Any suggestions on contour/foundation sticks or is it worth it to get the Fenty Beauty Match sticks?
