Love the finish not the best to use with a beauty blender but with a very dense brush does wonders! Exactly was I was looking for as far as coverage. I don’t have anything to cover but still love the thickness from it. Creases unless powdered set and had no problems, sucks it transfers easy and rubs off easy but it’s expected.

Review for: Warm Ivory more...
This foundation stick is amazing! It has gorgeous packaging and is a full coverage foundation. I do not have the brush but apply using a beauty blender and it evens out perfectly. Very buildable for a full coverage foundation and feels light on skin. Great for my combination skin as it does not leave patches or cling to dry spots. I received this product free from Influenster!

Review for: Vanilla more...
Oh how I wanted to love this!!! The color selection is fantastic...the formula is wonderful. However I use retin a for anti aging purposes and this made my face look like a peeling mess. Not only does it cling to every dry spot but the way you apply it with a dense brush on circular motions made the peeling a million times worse. This would probable be the best foundation for those with well hydrated skin but unfortunately back to Sephora it goes.

Review for: Sand more...
My rating is actually a 4.5 but I can’t do half stars. Anyway, this foundation is super full coverage and blends out like a dream.

The problem I do have with this product is that it settles into my laugh lines and makes me look super oily by the end of the day. I have normal skin and I can get away with almost any formulation of foundation; but this one in particular makes me look like I have an oil slick in my T-zone and on the apples of my cheeks after about 8-9 hours of wear.

Would I repurchase? Yes, the coverage is there, it’s smooth, makes my face look flawless, and a little goes a long way. Its pricey but definitely worth it whenever I want to look flawless and splurge on myself.

Review for: Ivory more...
This foundation stick is expensive but is it worth it? I’ll let you decide at the end. This product is pretty hyped up in the beauty world. If you ask anyone who owns the foundation would say it’s amazing. Do I think it’s a great product? Yes, this is a great foundation. Do I think you should go out and get it? It depends on how much you’re willing to spend on one product of makeup that you have to buy every 4 weeks ( if you wear it everyday ) or you decide to only wear it on special occasions. Also the shade range is ok , not amazing for darker skin tones.

Review for: Shell more...
I got a sample of this foundation and I'm mad that I tried it. It is definitely one of the best I've tried.

It does need to be applied with a sponge because with a brush it came out a little streaky but it was easily fixed when I switched to a sponge. It blends out easy and it took one coat to cover and even out my skin tone.

The color I got was probably a shade too dark but it was fine.

I will definitely be buying this over and over, I would say it's worth the money.

Review for: Beige more...
Wow! I decided I would finally give this product a try and I am so glad that I did. I was nervous because of all the reviews saying this foundation was suuupperr full coverage, but don’t be afraid. It is more of a full coverage but natural look, the finish is very beautiful. I also have dry skin and this does not accentuate any of my dryness, it actually sits so nicely on my skin. I use a brush to apply if wearing only this foundation alone, and a beauty blender if mixing with another foundation.

Review for: Porcelain more...
The Hourglass Vanish Stick is a fantastic full coverage, long lasting foundation. My shade is Porcelain, Sometimes full coverage foundations are cakey on my dry skin, but this one works surprisingly well. Although it’s full coverage, this foundation has a satin finish that’s very natural looking. Furthermore, It’s really quick and easy to apply. I dab the product directly on to my face and then blend it out with a buffing brush. (I recommend using the ELF Ultimate Blending Brush or the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush.) Yes, this foundation is more on the pricey side at $46 for 0.25 oz of product. However, it’s totally worth it in my book for its stellar performance. Also, a little product goes a long way so I can’t foresee running out anytime soon. When that time does come, I will definitely repurchase this product.

Review for: Bisque more...
One of my favorite foundations. I’m typically a liquid foundation girl, but this formula converted me. It’s a smooth application (especially when used with the veil primer) that gives buildable coverage. The shape of the stick is fantastic. I can get in the corners under my eyes and around my nose. Once it’s on, it’s truly hard to tell I have foundation on. It just melts into your skin. Worth the high price tag and lasts a long time!

Review for: Golden more...
For the Hourglass Vanish foundation stick: I think this foundation stick is okay. It’s not my favorite, but it will Work on a pinch. Like any foundation, or will last if you put setting powered or spray. It holds up well compared to the Lancôme Teint Idole, but my fave is the Tom Ford Traceless beauty foundation stick. I have a review on that too. Would I buy this foundation again? Probably not. But I will use it since I bought it.

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!
