#TrendingNow: Stick Versions Of Your Favorite Makeup
Travel plans or an on-the-go lifestyle killing your beauty game? I remember the days when it was totally normal to pack full bottles of liquid foundation and primers in a carry-on with no trouble at all. We’re making our way through 2016, and you know what? Putting jumbo liquid foundations in our bags, suitcases, and clutches just isn't cutting it anymore. They don’t make it past the third day of vacation!
Lo and behold, beauty geniuses do in fact walk this Earth, and they’re the creators of solid, stick makeup. Yep, that’s right, many of your favorite makeup products have now found themselves in stick or solid form. You can take them anywhere and you can find them pretty much anywhere, too! Take a peek at some of our favorite new drugstore and boutique solid makeup options!
PRICE: $24 at Sephora
THE SCOOP: This quick, easy-to-use formula is perfect for a creamy, sheer tint on your cheeks and lips. The best part? It’s so buildable and blendable, you probably won’t need a mirror! As you can see this is the perfect multi-tasker to throw in any purse or cross-body bag. Heck, we think it would even fit perfectly in your tiniest clutch.
PRICE: $5.99 at Walgreens
THE SCOOP:It’s blush on-the-go! Maybelline’s Glaze Blush is great if you want that effortless glow to your cheeks. Infused with shea butter, it blends easily and gives you a perfectly dewy finish. And as you can see at $5.99 it's a total steal.
PRICE: $39 at Nordstrom
THE SCOOP:You’ve probably heard the term ‘strobing’ once or twice before. It’s essentially contouring, but with a glowy tint to the cheekbones. You can do just that with this product. The Illuminating Multiple is awesome because it’s not only restricted to the cheek region--you can even apply it to your eyes and lips for a pinch of shimmer!
PRICE: $9.99 at Walgreens
THE SCOOP:There aren’t many things in this world more convenient than portable foundation. Some of us have seen the more expensive Lancôme version, and for some we agree, it's totally worth the splurge, but we think this drugstore dupe works really well! It’s super easy to apply and blend, and you can throw it in your purse for quick touch-ups during the day.
PRICE: $24 at Sephora
THE SCOOP:Facial mists are amazing for hydrating your face, and even more necessary with the warmer weather rolling in. Milk Makeup’s Cooling Water is made with seawater and caffeine and gives you this cooling sensation when it’s pressed to your skin. Oh, and you can kiss leakages goodbye!
PRICE: $28 at Bloomingdale’s
THE SCOOP:We’re crazy about anything sun protectant related--especially when it comes in a convenient stick form of creamy foundation. Shisheido has a great rep for giving awesome coverage, and reviews say it’s amazing at giving the skin a dewy glow and smooth finish as well.
