I have been using Iman Foundation since I was in high school which is nearly 20 years. As a women with melanin, it is often very difficult to find foundation shades that compliment my skin tone and still looks natural and not caked. The fact there are several darker shades beyond what I wear is a testament to the brands understanding of melanin infused skin. And I’m hear for it. 

With this this stick foundation a little goes a long way. And it is a semi matte texture so in the areas that my skin is dry it dies not make it look dryer (which is GREAT). I also enjoy that thus foundation is build able for the times when I am having issues with hyperpigmentation.

Amazing! Finding makeup that matches my skin is hard af sometimes . I discovered Iman's foundation sticks many years back and have been obsessed ever since. The coverage is amazing, smooth finish & the colors are a wide variety for women of color. Love it

The Second to None foundation is expensive ($16) for a drugstore foundation.  However, if you have darker skin and hate foundations with red/orange undertones, I highly recommend the  IMAN Stick Foundation .  In warmer weather, it's a quick way to get ready in the morning.

To find your perfect shade, I would suggest going to findation.com or using the Iman app.  I matched with Earth 4 and was shocked to learn that only one store in my area had the shade in stock.  I'm glad I bought this foundation stick when I did because there were only 2 left at the store when I arrived.  When I actually applied the foundation to my face, I couldn't even tell I was wearing any product at all.

You can use your ring finger,  beautyblender original makeup sponge , or a foundation brush to blend this in.  It tends to blend a bit easier with a brush.  For sheer to medium coverage, I apply 3 dots on my forehead, 2 on my nose, 2 on each cheek and 1 on my chin.  For fuller coverage, I apply 2 swipes on my forehead, 1 on my nose, 1 on my chin and 2 on each cheek.  I spray some  MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ onto my  Sigma F80 - Flat Kabuki Brush and blend the stick outward for the smoothest finish.  When I set my face with powder and spray, I can get at least 6 hours of wear from one application.  My pores don't feel smothered and my face doesn't look like an oil slick.  I'll definitely be buying more!

If you are curious about the shade categories: Sand is for olive skin, Clay is for dark olive to light brown skin and Earth is for medium to ebony skin.

I actually have all the colors since I use this foundation a lot in my makeup kit. Smooth texture and great coverage. Would recommend these foundations if you are looking for something different from the typical store brands

I'm just in love with this foundation. I started using 2 years ago and it's still my all time favorite. I've tried so many expensive foundations and nothing can beat this! I have sensitive acne prone skin . I use it everyday and i love it. I have a flawless finish also full coverage

To me, IMAN is the one of the originals when it comes to black beauty. My grandmother used it, my mother used it, my sister used it and now I've also seen the light. I used to think I had to spend a lot of money just for a good foundation, however this is the best $14 I've spent on any makeup. Not only is the colour match spot on - which is a first for me - but I'm also getting full coverage, and for once i have no issues with an oily tzone unlike when I've used other foundations (primarily liquid). My only issue with this foundation is that it's not as creamy as I would like so sometimes blending can be a hassle, but makeup application is all about blending and patience. To make my blending easier I just dampen my foundation brush with my NYX setting spray and then I'm good to go. At this point I don't see a reason for me to switch foundations unlike I've always done in the past because I'm looking for the right one. I'm 100% happy with this!!

Always wanted to try the stick foundation, I'm a fan of the bb creme. And because of the price I'm a bit hesitant. Do you think that is worth the price?
