I bought 2 different shades of this because it was on clearance at ulta. This is the first foundation stick/s I have ever purchased and/or used. Surprisingly I really loved it. I don't know the 2 shades off the top of my Start your review of NYX Mineral Stick Foundation!
head but I am pretty light/fair. The one was a bit too light but the other was perfect. These are great for beginners and priced well. I really like alot of NYX products but some can be hit or miss to me (usually hit) needless to say these were deff not a miss and actually I just ran out of the stick that matched me better so looks like I might need to try a new one! Oh and it lasted me almost a year but I didn't use it daily... If u use alot or daily I doubt it will last that long. Foundation didn't last all day for me either but it's good for days when I didn't want full coverage..or had time for a real quick touch up!

It's hard to compare this to another stick foundation as this is the only one I've tried. However I was pleasantly surprised.. as it is a cream I was dreading it being super greasy and just horrible feeling.. but it proved me wrong. It is very creamy but does set down well, especially if you set with powder.. it's staying power is ok but doesn't compare to any liquid foundations I've used. It's definitely worth a go though if your wanting to try a stick as it is pretty inexpensive! My skin is combination/dry at the moment & it definitely sits better than when my skin was oily so just bear that in mind

Review for: Light Medium more...
Try this foundation! Impressive. I was using the HD Foundation which I liked very much, but I found that it was settling into my pores. I also stopped using the HD primer as that created a white cast on my skin. BUT! As a true fan of NYX makeup I wanted to try the Mineral Stick Foundation. I have never used a stick foundation before, but this is wonderful! So easy to apply, coverage is great, and no settling into pores. I use the Medium Biege for now and will switch to Golden Beige for summer. I use the NYX powder foundation in Beige to set the makeup and I have the NYX Matte Finish Spray which I use now & then if it's warm outside. I also use Revlon's CC cream as a base under the foundation - haven't tried the NYX BB cream yet. Thank you NYX for creating affordable and truly great products. I've used all the department store bands over the years but grew tired of the expense. Tried your products and will never go back! Very impressed!

Review for: Espresso, Caramel more...
This foundation is a stick satin foundation. I find that it does a pretty good job with concealing blemishes and dark circles. Although, I have oily so obviously my face looks a bit shiny with this foundation but as soon as I apply a powder my face looks flawless! The only thing I do not like about this foundation is the amount it brings and the price. I mean if it's going to be a stick foundation it should at least be $6 because they're are foundations that are under $10 and they are better than this $10 foundation. My face feels a bit tacky but not to the point where it makes me feel uncomfortable. The foundation has no smell, and the texture is soft and it glides on easily to the skin. The foundation does not last all day. But I'm okay with that because its a foundation I only use for school and keep in my bag so I can reapply this foundation whenever and I'm okay! I honestly, recommend this foundation for people who go to school wearing makeup

Review for: Rich more...
I originally bought this because I was curious to try out stick
foundation for the first time. I was skeptical about the shade I bought
(rich) because I never seem to find a foundation that actually
matches my skin tone. I have the weirdest skin tone because I am a
medium tan shade, with neutral/cool undertones with a lot of redness in
my skin. When I tried this out, I was immediately surprised. I love the
coverage. It's so lightweight and natural looking. It doesn't even look
like I have on foundation when I wear this. This is the first foundation
I've EVER found that 100% matches my skin tone. I definitely will buy
2-3 of these when I run out. I am so impressed! #ThankYouNYX

I actually love using and trying out foundation sticks,they tend to last longer than the powder foundations, I also actually use a shade lighter as my concealer and shade darker than my skin tone for contouring because as I've mentioned earlier that I just love the finishing of this product NYX Mineral Stick Foundation

Review for: Cool Chestnut, Light Medium more...
I bought two of these foundation sticks for cream contouring. I wanted something that wouldn't cause my sensitive skin to react but also wouldn't cost me a fortune and I found it! These are very creamy and blend quite well. I use a blender sponge to apply them and it looks so natural. I am very pleased!

Review for: Warm Tan more...
The foundation sticks give really good coverage. It is easy to use, you only have to put it on those spots and blend it out with a beauty blender and you're done! I used it for the first time and I was really surprised because it's so cheap.

Although it gives good coverage it does feel really oily after you wear it for a few hours, I don't know if it because of my skin type, but it just makes my skin really oily, more than before. It also smears off really quickly. Even though you see brown spots on your fingers and shirt the foundation does stay on your face, so the coverage stays throughout the whole day.
