I have absolutely fallen in love with this foundation. I have normal to to dry skin (more on the dry side) and I LOVE a nice, dewy finish when it comes to my makeup application. I heard so many great things about this foundation so I had to try it. To start with the packaging, I do like the stick concept. It makes it extremely easy for travel and makes for an easy application. Also, I love that product does not get wasted like it does with a bottled, liquid foundation. There is a decent amount of product to this and it lasts me quite a while. I have yet to go through an entire stick and I have had mine for almost a year now (granted I do not use it everyday , but I do use it a couple times a week at least). 

The formula is extremely blendable. The texture is very smooth and not overwhelmingly heavy on the skin. I like to apply a couple small swipes to my forehead, cheeks, and one on my nose and chin. I like to use a damp beauty blender to blend out the foundation and it works perfectly for me. It is so creamy and blends like a dream!  It feels somewhat lightweight and provides a gorgeous, satin finish. It really makes my skin look absolutely flawless and natural. I LOVE it! It also lasts me all day long, particularly when it is set with a powder. I have found, though, that if I have some dry patches on my skin, if I don't moisturize well enough, it will cling to those areas. 
The coverage is certainly buildable; I can get anywhere from light to medium coverage, all the way up to full coverage with just another layer! I don't have to apply an excessive amount of product in order to achieve a full coverage, which is something I like. 

To my knowledge, there are about 40 shades to choose from. Which I think is great. Regardless of your skin tone, you are sure to find  a shade that will work for you! 

Overall, this is a really great foundation. It holds throughout the extremely hot summer days without me having to reapply or touch up at all. I always get compliments on my skin when I wear this foundation. It really is a great product that I recommend to anyone. It is not the cheapest option but it definitely is not the most expensive either. I Believe the cost is well worth it and I will most certainly repurchase when the time comes!

I absolutely love this foundation stick. I should start by saying I have dry skin, and it’s perfect for me. I might use caution or set your foundation well if you have oily skin. However, it blends seamlessly-like a dream. It has awesome coverage. I would say closer to medium to full coverage. When I get super tan in the summer, I use it to highlight as well. My skin looks flawless after application with the help of my beauty blender. It doesn’t settle in my fine lines. It’s lightweight-of course, depending on usage, but I have zero complaints. Here’s a could experiment with lighter and darker colors for contouring and highlighting. They last so long! The price is definitely worth it!

Review for: R230 Ivory more...
So I’ve been using the MUFE HD liquid foundation forever and I thought this would be similar but it was not. right when I put it on my face I felt like it accentuated my pores and fine lines even more than having a bare face. I also wore it to work for 10 hrs and halfway through the day it broke apart so bad around my nose cheeks and chin. I had high hopes for this because I have friends that liked it but it didn’t work for me. It clung in weird spots around my nose in places I didn’t even realize. Even just after applying this foundation with a brush, it didn’t seam seamless and even, I could take a mirror really close to my face and see the makeup sitting on my skin. I tested it out for a full week and I had to go back to Sephora to return. :(

Review for: Y365 Desert more...
This has been my go-to foundation for the past year. It has a nice natural finish on my skin (I often mix it with FARSÁLI Rose Gold Elixir for a dewier finish) and is medium-full coverage and buildable. The formula works well for my combination-type skin - it doesn't cling to my dry patches, nor does it look greasy. I wouldn't recommend this for oily skin however, as I do have to set this with powder if i'm wearing it for a full day, especially in the t-zone as that area can get oily in just a couple of hours. When set lightly, (I use tarte™ smooth operator ™ Amazonian clay finishing powder) it holds up well throughout 8-9 hour work days. Granted, I worked retail, so i'm not sure how well it would last outdoors in warmer weather. I prefer the MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Stick Foundation over the liquid MAKE UP FOR EVER HD High Definition Foundation which I tried a few years ago, mainly because the stick is easier to apply and requires less product for the same amount of coverage. I also like the shade selection of this foundation as I found my perfect shade match upon swatching it at Sephora, leading to a prompt purchase despite the high price tag ($43 USD for 12.5g of product). To conclude, i'm happy to say I would repurchase this foundation.

Review for: Y215 Yellow Alabaster more...
Okay, I read a lot of reviews and watched a lot of youtube videos on stick foundations before purchasing this, and I was skeptical as to whether I would really like it, but I was planning for an overseas vacation and wanted something easy to travel with and quick to use, so I bought it anyway. I AM SO GLAD I DID. Guys, this stuff is great! I have combination skin, which errs on the side of oily, and this stuff lasted ALL DAY LONG on me, without looking greasy by the end of the day. And I was hiking, riding on boats, shopping, eating, napping, everything. It is SO quick to use, I literally just slapped it on my face and used a Morphe foundation brush to buff out. It took less than a minute for a full coverage face. I would set with Milani Make It Last setting spray and I was good to go all day. It works really well with concealers and powder products, too. I was really, really impressed. I travel quite a lot so I absolutely love the convenience of this product. Lastly, I was a little skeptical about the shade, as I've always thought I was cool toned, but this quite literally the PERFECT shade for me. I love it. Next on my list is the Hourglass Vanish stick - I've heard awesome things about that one, too!

My little sister owns this foundation, so I’ve been able to use it enough to determine how I feel about it. I’m usually not a stick foundation girl, but this is one of the best foundation products I have ever used. It doesn’t feel heavy on your face, yet provides an awesome matte coverage. It’s extremely blendable, it only takes me a minute to blend it beautifully with a damp the original beautyblender® beauty queen pink original. It also is very long lasting, and makes your skin look especially nice in pictures and film. I can’t wait to buy a stick of my own!

Love this foundation! The only problem I have with it is that it doesn’t stay on very easily. I love how smooth it is and how it smells and how it blends out easily but I struggle with transfer and also, the color isn’t perfectly matching- it’s a little dark and the shade lighter is too light and too pink. Maybe they should work on shade range? Anyway. I can find a primer that will help it stick better for me, I just wish their range was a little better. This definitely looks like skin no matter how much too much you put on.

Review for: R230 Ivory more...
A Sephora employee talked me into getting this foundation because of my dry skin. I contemplated returning it and never did. I finally got something else though and wish I would’ve taken this one back, seeing as how it was somewhat expensive and it got patchy just like other foundations I’ve used. I don’t feel like there’s anything special about this one. It blended well, but only if you worked quickly. Like, you should swipe half of your face (maybe less), blend out, and then repeat until you’re covered. I never could find a setting powder that worked well with it either. I tried multiple brands, including Laura Mercier. I wanted this foundation to be “the one” for me so badly that I kept using it for far too long. It wasn’t very buildable, so where does “HD” come into play when it doesn’t cover anything? I’m sure others love this, and haven’t had issues like I have though. You never know unless you try it, just don’t be like me and not return it before it’s too late if it doesn’t make you happy!

Review for: R230 Ivory more...
I had really high hopes for this foundation especially after watching videos on YouTube and actually seeing how flawless it looked on the skin. I love the stick formula. This has been my go-to foundation for the past couple of weeks everyday. It is so easy to just swipe on my face and rub around with a brush quickly yet still having a flawless finish. It doesn't feel heavy on my face either. However....I have noticed that no matter what primer or moisturizer or powder I set this with, nothing changes the fact that this foundation breaks up on my skin so badly. Granted, I do get a decent amount of wear time out of it, but by the end of the day I look at hot cake face mess. I have used other foundations that don't break up as bad after 8 hr like my Estee double wear or my Wet N Wild liquid foundation. I will continue to use this foundation and try things to prevent it from breaking up so bad but right now I can't seem to figure it out. Overall still a great foundation, just for the pricepoint I was hoping for a little more wear time I suppose.

I've been wanting to try this but im worried it might not be worth it. I have a combination skin and it looks like it might be too creamy. Will it make my face look oily?

Is it really worth the money? How about contouring with a darker shade? Is it easy to blend?
