Review for: Shell more...
I’ve not tried many stick foundations, but this is one of the best foundations I’ve tried. The coverage is buildable but gives a natural finish. It doesn’t feel to heavy on the skin, and it blends out quickly and with ease (with both a brush and a sponge). It is an expensive foundation though, but after seeing all the reviews and trying it myself, it definitely lives up to the hype. It can show up dryness, so I need to ensure exfoliate well before using - but when it’s been paired with the Bobbi Brown Face Base, it’s simply sublime.

I don’t wear a lot of make up, but I need something to help even out my skin tone (freckles and redness). I don’t have a ton of time for a beauty routine because I’m getting myself ready for work and 3 young kids out the door in the morning. I love this foundation because it’s quick and easy to apply, provides medium coverage I need, and lasts throughout the day. It’s light feeling on my skin and is highly concentrated so a little product goes a long way. This is my new go-to product.

Review for: Golden Natural more...
Definitely not worth $56 (CAD). I've been hearing so many good things about this foundation and I really wanted it work, but no it did not.

- Great shade range. I was able to find the right one for my undertone which I'm happy about.
- VERY full coverage (for those who are full coverage peeps).
- Although it is full coverage, it still feels quite light on the skin... which is great coz I hate having a full coverage foundation that feels so heavy and thick.

- Did not blend out very well no matter how much I added. I always had spots that still looked like they were missing foundation coverage.
- Made some parts of face look patchy and cakey.
- Creases in some parts very fast so it's hard to say what it's like if you leave it to settle for a few minutes.

At this point, the cons out way the pros. Thus, forcing me to return for something that'll actually work. I definitely DO NOT recommend the foundation for combination skin or if you have a little bit of textured skin.

Review for: Golden Tan more...
I normally don’t prefer using stick foundation but this Hourglass vanish stick really changed my perspective on it. The formula is creamy smooth and slides on the skin super easily. Blends out great and provides the perfect amount of coverage. It feels super thin and breathable on my face and doesn’t oxidize funny, even in humid weather. Hands down my favourite go-to stick foundation.

Review for: Porcelain more...
I bought this foundation expecting something dewy and long lasting, with buildable natural-looking coverage. Instead I found it to be dry and powdery looking, it highlights all my peach fuzz like a bad, very matte powder and it breaks up all over my face in a matter of hours. I have tried the product with the hourglass veil primer and the smashbox pore perfecting primer but saw no difference to the wear time with either. For the price I was expecting so much and due to the product being a stick it is impossible to return or sell on. I struggle to see any positives in this foundation as I have tried using it to create a light coverage and building it up to a medium but with both effects I can’t seem to make it work. I would highly recommend trying this foundation in store before you purchase it, as it seems to work very differently for each individual and I think particularly bad on oily skin.

Review for: Chestnut more...
I first tried this foundation a year ago and found it amazing but was unsure about whether to buy it since I'm literally always buying foundations. I have oily skin which also seems to be dehydrated so I'm put off by wearing makeup everyday since I always have to blot and check for oil the whole day. BUT WITH THIS- it was about six hours plus before I needed to blot and on top of that I was able to build on it to make out more full coverage for the evening and it STILL looked great. I totally recommend it!!

Review for: Cream more...
This product had a bit of a learning curve for me. I usually use liquid foundations but I had heard good reviews and thought why not.

For the most part I like this. The colour works well for me and I like that it’s not very messy. You don’t have to squirt some out and smear it on your hand or a palette you can just get directly down to business. It feels nice, it looks nice, the packaging feels like it’s sturdy which is good because this isn’t cheap.

I loved it for quite a while but then I noticed it had started getting a little cakey looking around my mouth by the end of the day. I tried using it a little more sparingly but it still did. I can’t figure out if it’s the product itself or my application or a different product I’ve been using but it’s really deterred me from using it. And also it’s a bit light for me now that it’s summer again

So this is my first stick foundation and I have to say I do love the coverage of it. A little goes such a long way and I love the shade matches to my skin. I used to find it difficult for a brand to match my undertones but the finish and quality of this is excellent. Also love the sleep brown packaging! I think hourglass have hit the nail on the head with that one. Only drawback of this is it doesn’t last around my nose all day. I either need to top up or use a more dewy foundation in this area. I’m not entirely sure why this happens but it is annoying as it seems to separate. I wore it every day to work and although it’s a lot of money, it lasted me 5 months in total. I personally wouldn’t wear this foundation for a night out as it doesn’t have the overall finish I like but it’s excellent for every day use. The coverage is buildable and it doesn’t upset my sensitive skin.

Review for: Ivory more...
BEST STICK FOUNDATION EVER!!! This is an amazing high end foundation. Hourglass is one of those brands that I like almost everything. This is full coverage and it is so easy to blend. This is such a dependable foundation too because I know the coverage it is going to give me every time and I know how it wears. It lasts all day on me and I still see my highlight and bronzer at the end of the day.

The shade matches me perfectly and that is the only exciting part about this foundation. It looks somewhat decent when first applied. I always use a primer and set my make up with a powder. This foundation is a challenge for me! I think partly because it has received so many great reviews, I always feel like perhaps I am not doing something right! I have tried it with different primers - it looks okay when first applied but man o man does this foundation accentuate the fine lines you did not even know you have! It clings to dry patches, it rubs off. I heard that this foundation was transfer proof.. let me put an end to that claim.. it definitely transfers! It sits on top of skin? Like it does not blend properly.. I don't know. I would not recommend it but it may just work for you so I don't know.

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!
