This is a great full coverage foundation that is also super light to wear! My husband kept saying I was looking like I had too much makeup on or it was settling into lines making me look older ughhh just what anyone wants to hear right?! I had a small sample of this I had gotten ages ago. It actually turned out to be the perfect shade for winter, go figure! Well I tried this and he said my foundation looked so much better!

I use my Clarisonic foundation head to apply this and it’s a dream. I tried my beauty blender and it’s a tad hard to do/ takes longer. A foundation brush typically makes it streaky on me since I have a heavy hand. The Clarisonic with this is amazing. I use the hangover primer to give my skin a bit more moisture since I heard it’s not great for dry skin. This is amazing! Hopefully it lives up to the longwear part since I teach and waitress and need it to last.

Review for: Blanc more...
I had been wanting to try a new foundation that wasn’t so dewy like my Cover FX foundation so I wanted to try this after reading so many good reviews over it. My old foundation started settling in what little pores I have, creasing, and looking greasy.

This foundation is my new favorite! It feels lightweight but I can get medium to full coverage. I don’t feel like I’m wearing a thick layer of foundation since I only need a couple of swipes. I haven’t experienced any issues with it settling in pores or creasing.

The shade I have is Blanc and it matches perfectly! I have trouble finding foundations that are light enough and not too pink or too yellow.

Review for: Porcelain more...
I initially bought this foundation before a Vegas trip so I would have a waterproof foundation and I had mixed feelings about it since I had never used a stick foundation before. After using it more I absolutely love both the coverage and finish. It looks like my real skin! I don’t even set the rest of my face with powder when I use it since it looks so natural once it sets. It also has enough coverage to even out the texture on my cheeks if my skin happens to be acting up that day. Will be repurchasing once I go through my first stick.

This foundation stick gives a beautiful smooth appearance to the skin. Complete full coverage. I would compare this stick to the makeup forever HD stick. My only gripe with this Hourglass vanish stick is that it does NOT last too well on my skin personally. It looks great when its first applied but 6 hours later it does not look too great. It will gather around my nose and fades around my mouth. Knowing this I just choose to wear this on days I know I won't need the foundation for a long period of time. Other than that it is one of the prettiest finishes I have come across.

This is one of my favorite foundations ive ever used and the number of foundations i have tried is almost shameful. It is incredibly smooth and creamy, offers great coverage, isnt cakey, and doesnt settle into pores. The finish of this is great, its a beautiful satin finish, which normally doesnt work for my oily skin but somehow does with this. At the price (i think its 56$ if i remember correctly) i cant afford to buy a new shade for how much my skin tone changes because of my on and off tanning habits but if i could i would repurchase this every time my skin color changes.

Review for: Ivory more...
Sooooo tremendously disappointed by this foundation. After watching so many beauty influencers on YouTube recommend it, I finally broke down and bought it after swearing I wouldn’t spend that much on foundation. I have had nothing but bad experiences with this product. I don’t know if it’s just because I’ve got oily skin to start with, but I can’t make it more than 3-4 hours without looking super oily and needing to redo my whole face. By the end of the day it looks like I didn’t even bother to put makeup on. Would not purchase again and would not recommend to others.

This foundation is my holy grail. It made my skin poreless, easy to apply, full coverage, and have good amount of moisture so you can easily blend it using either beauty sponge or brush. Some stick foundation I had to use some oil like farsali so I can blend it, but with hourglass vanish stick foundation...you apply it and just buff it to your face and walla..like magic 😍😍 😍 I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND HOURGLASS VANISH STICK FOUNDATION 😊Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation StickHourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick

Review for: Porcelain more...
I really like this foundation. Stick foundation has been my go to lately since it’s easy to apply and blend out with a brush. However, some of them don’t work with my skin because I end up getting oily pretty quickly or it just feels plain heavy. This one blended quite nicely and covered up the redness in my cheeks. I have sensitive skin too and it didn’t make me break out. I also used. Mattifying primer underneath as well on my t zone since I wore it at work and as a nurse working 12 hour shifts it seemed to hold up pretty nicely. Glad I went with this product!

Review for: Linen more...
I wanted so badly to like this having seen all the hype on Youtube. Admittedly it is the best stick foundation that I've tried, but I still find it mask-like. It's easier to work with and it blends into my complexion better than most sticks, the packaging is nice - solid and attractive - and it would be a great option for travel, but it is still just not a very natural finish and is stiffer than I prefer. If you need a stick foundation, this is worth a try, but it is not as magical as a lot of vloggers would have you believe.

Review for: Golden more...
I actually got this foundation right when it came out, without reading any reviews. The woman at Sephora color matched me, applied it on me, and I loved it and bought it right there and then. 

However, after that initial love I started to hate it. I had to do a lot of searching to find a primer/setting powder combination that worked well with it. Sometimes it would become greasy really quickly, other times by the end of the day it looked like I had no foundation on, and other times it broke up so bad. 

Eventually, when I did find a combination that worked for me, I realized why everyone liked it. It's super creamy, full coverage, and builds up quite nicely. It gives my skin a flawless look that lasts throughout the night. My blushes, contours, and highlighters work well with it also!

I would only recommend this product if you have a lot of primers/setting powders to work with, incase you have the same problem as me. At such a high price it should work well with more products.

I have some good reviews on this product. I read good coverage, not oily, and pretty pricey. My concern is the wear time? How long did anyone had to reapply or if that is a problem with this foundation? Thanks!

I have oily and acne prone skin. How will this work for me? Also how is its coverage for current acne/acne scars?
