I am usually a brush girl for applying any and all of my face makeup, but I recently hopped on the Beauty Blender train for applying this stick foundation and have had fantastic results. Yes, there are some things that applications with a sponge really can make a difference. I have medium skin with olive undertones and I have found that Warm Beige is the perfect shade for me. My natural hair color is a medium ash brown (but I am currently having fun being blonde) and I have blue eyes. I know that this foundation doesn’t work for all skin types, but it works well with my sensitive, combination skin. I just make sure that I set my T-zone with my Hourglass ambient lighting palette and I don’t have to worry about my base makeup and can focus on whatever makeup look I am trying to achieve for that day. I believe that this particular Hourglass foundation is best suited for those with normal or combination skin. Hourglass does have a few other foundations (one that particularly caters to oily skin, dry skin, and even aging skin). But there is definitely an Hourglass foundation that will play well with whatever skin type you have. Also, Hourglass has amazing customer service, so if you ever have a question about which foundation to choose, what shade is right for your skin tone, etc. they are extremely helpful and knowledgeable. This foundation will forever be in my foundation rotation. And don’t let the small size of this fountain fool you, a little goes a long way. And even with wearing this foundation multiple days a week, I have haven’t used up my foundation stick that I bought more than a few months ago.

If you want a foundation that makes your skin look like SKIN, and is QUICK and easy to apply with little to no waste -- look no further. Even with my combination skin, this foundation does not wipe off or transfer like many other "mattifying" foundations claim not to do. True, it is not as long-wearing as EL Double Wear, for instance, but it also looks a heck of a lot more like skin than EL does, also. When first applied, it looks almost as if you have nothing on, and as if your skin is just perfect, which is the kind of skin I've been leaning more towards these days, even if that does mean I need to sacrifice maybe 1-2 hours of wear time at the end of my day. Despite it all, even when it does wear down, I do not have visible patches of separation or breakdown, and there is no noticeable areas on my face where the foundation has failed... it still looks like great skin, which honestly looks better than having nasty fluid caked around your nose or your fine lines or wherever your oils have seeped out and broken down your makeup. This foundation applies itself with dignity, and it fades away with the same dignity. While the price is fairly high when you consider the amount of product you get, it should also be noted that the amount you're actually applying to your face in comparison to a liquid is considerably less as well. When pouring a liquid out and having to stipple and pounce it all over like paint, you'll most certainly need more product than you do with this magical stick, because for whatever reason, the emollient texture and high pigmentation of the cream seems to lend itself a heavy hand when buffing itself out and into your skin, and you actually end up using very little... it won't be an equivalent wt by wt comparison. They recommend to "dot" the foundation stick on, but swiping it on will work much better still, and buffing it in with a foundation brush will be the way to go, but you won't need a heavy hand since it blends out so beautifully. Highly recommend this, and I was such a die hard EL DW fan until I began using this, too...

Review for: Beige more...
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.

THIS FOUNDATION IS DEFINITELY FULL COVERAGE! Don’t get me wrong, I am a full coverage gal, but this is like nothing, I’ve ever used. It evened my skin out with one application & my acne scars & discoloration with a light second application in those targeted areas so it’s definitely buildable. No need for concealer unless it’s to brighten, but make sure to use a light hand bc all these products can start to get a little cakey or heavy. Nonetheless, it looks absolutely flawless & beautiful. It didn’t cling onto any of my dry patches & didn’t dry me out throughout the day. I did use the hourglass serum underneath though. Upon application it is a satin finish, but did get dewier as the day went on so I’d recommend for dry to normal skin types. Overall, it is a great foundation, but may just take getting used to your preferred application & the $46 price tag.

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.

I have been dying to try this foundation so I finally broke down and decided to purchase it and I am so glad I did! The coverage of this foundation is AMAZING! I love the fact that it’s a stick product so I feel like I don’t waste as much as I would if it were a liquid! It makes my face look flawless! They have so many color options that you are bound to find one that matches your skin tone perfectly! It’s a very matte foundation so if you have oily or combination skin this product is perfect for you! As far as the price goes, it’s reasonably priced and the fact that you don’t waste it is worth it!

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.

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?
