In a world saturated with foundations, it can be hard choose a favorite and even harder to find the right one for you. We’ve tried many over the years, and can confidently say that we’ve finally found the One. bareMinerals just launched their Complexion Rescue Hydrating Foundation Stick, and it’s a package deal! Because sharing is caring, we’re sending this gift from the makeup gods to 5,000 lucky Influensters in an upcoming VoxBox.
What makes it special?
This is the first-ever liquid foundation in stick form. Most foundation sticks are built with oils, but Complexion Rescue Hydrating Foundation Stick is made from 30 percent water. The water base provides the hydrating benefits of a moisturizer and the SPF 25 protects the skin like sunscreen. The easy-to-blend texture actually feels like liquid foundation and can be used for medium buildable coverage. Plus, its multitasking formula functions as a foundation as well as concealer. Here are some pro-tips for applying the product:
- For sheer to medium coverage, use fingers to blend from the center outward.
- For medium coverage, use the Smoothing Face Brush to gently buff foundation into skin in small circular motions, starting at the center and blending outward.
- For buildable coverage, use a makeup sponge to build coverage and smooth for a soft-focus finish.
- To conceal and touch-up, swirl your ring finger on top to warm up the product, then gently pat this finger onto areas that need more coverage (such as dark circles, blemishes, or discoloration).
Additionally, you’ll notice how non-cakey and radiant the finish is. The lightweight formula combines the hydration of a tinted moisturizer with medium buildable coverage, in a convenient on-the-go format. Speaking of the formula, this foundation is also entirely vegan and cruelty-free. If you’re interested in clean beauty and natural makeup that truly works, Complexion Rescue Hydrating Foundation stick is perfect for you.
