NYX Cosmetics Mineral Stick Foundation
I bought this foundation on a whim while browsing ULTA. I recently started traveling more so i thought this was a great option. I wanted to take products that i knew were not gonna make a mess and possibly spill everywhere. Its super easy to use; you can apply apply it with a beauty blender or a brush. I prefer a brush because its faster and covers more area faster. Also, its totally build-able. If you need more coverage in a certain area, just swipe it and blend. So easy and convenient. I will mostly be repurchasing this if i continue to travel. I have other foundations that i like more but this is a good one if im running late and just need something fast and easy

For a less high end product, this one works surprisingly well. Like with most foundation I have to use a primer or it will move and transfer. With a primer it stays put and won't clog my pores. It is a tiny bit on the thick side but I tend to be able to use less of it because it blends out so well. I tend to keep this more for personal use and I even sometimes get it in a lighter shade to use as a highlight and map out my face. Even with my sensitive skin I still manage to use with no problem. I plan on purchasing again and recommending to my more on the go friends and clients.
I was really excited to try this product because it comes in a shade that exactly matches my skin color and tone, plus it's so easy to apply. That's all that's good about it though. I have combination/problem skin- my pores are huge and my skin is very textured- and this only accentuated these problem areas. I used two layers and it still wasn't full coverage. It also lasted less than 5 hours and left my face looking and feeling oily.
This is one of the most amazing product that I have used up until now I love it because it gives me a nice light to medium coverage and it really just conceals flawlessly. I would definitely recommend this for normal to oily skin. Aside from using it as a mineral stick foundation you can also use it as cream Contor. It is really nice and blendable and really works well to make it look like a subtle contour for the skin.
This foundation has great coverage. I like the stick form because I don't have to dirty an applicator sponge or my finger to apply it like I do with liquid or a compact. I would recommend wiping the foundation tip from time to time as it touches your face directly and you don't want to transfer dirt and oil each time. I wish the price of this was consistent between higher-end stores and drug stores.
I use these sticks every so often. I prefer using liquid foundation. But these sticks are very convenient if you want to take your makeup on the go. I always moisturize and prime my face before every use. It applies evenly and goes on smoothly. It is medium cover so anyone battling with acne may want to find a fuller coverage foundation stick, speaking from experience.
I love this product, however the formula is not condusive for all-over blending. I find myself using mine more as a highlight, especially during the summer when my skin is tanner and it doesn't quite match my skin tone. I don't hate it -I just think it has better uses than an all-over foundation. It also works wonders as a concealer under your favorite foundation!
Review for: Fair
Love this product especially when doing drag makeup, this product provides high coverage without feeling heavy. This product blends onto skin evenly and can be used with a darker shade for cream contour and highlighting. I do recommend setting with a finishing powder to complete the the or prior to applying a powder highlight/contour for a more drastic look.
Review for: Porcelain
I am so ecstatic I have found this product! It's so easy to apply and lasts all day with out oxidizing! I use this color as well as the Caramel stick for contouring! Absolutely mess free. It applies straight to your face then easily blends with a beauty blender! If you've been looking for a new foundation, this is it!!! Fantastic coverage.
Q & A
How long does this last? Is it sweat proof/waterproof?
Do you use a blender to spread it through the skin?
How well it's the coverage? I have really porous skin and greasy I feel like with any stick foundation it makes my skin look cakey and it makes my pores show even more has anyone try this that has the same problem as me? And would you recommend it
How is the coverage and what type of skin type is this best for?
If i have oily skin will it work on me?
