This foundation stick is very dry. I constantly have to wet my beauty blender with setting spray to allow this foundation stick to blend out upon my skin. It is very full coverage though!

I have oily skin and this was just a big no for me. It oxidized, looked patchy, wouldn't blend, and made my pres look huge even after using a pore filling primer.

I love this product soooo much. It medium coverage but can be built up to full coverage. The product lasts all day, it is more on the heavy side but most medium to full coverage foundations are. Its not very hard to blend out with a kabuki brush and even easier with a beauty blender.

I love this stick foundation. I in general do love stick foundations for the amount of coverage they give. I think you get a good amount of product in here compared to Hourglass stick foundation. this is long wearing and I love the color range. There are so many undertones to choose from!

This foundation is amazing for combo skin! It's not greasy or oily, and it's medium coverage. It blends out so great and makes my skin look amazing! One of my favorite foundations.

I really wanted to love this foundation. I gave it multiple tries and different applications. I originally liked it when I tried it on in store but as I wore it throughout the day i felt it getting greasy on my face and accentuates my pores. I used it with different primers and powdered it with my holy grail laura mercier translucent powder. But this might only work for SUPER dry.

This Foundation has a dewy finish. It's very good for dry skin it feels very moisturizing. A blend very well with a foundation brush. The foundation holds up very well all day if set with powder.

Review for: Light Medium Neutral more...
This is an average product, it does not compare to the hourglass stick foundation however I was not extremely disappointed by the way my face looked after using. What I disliked most about this foundation is that it left my face feeling oily at all times and it is not a long-wearing product. I would not buy this again.

What type of coverage is this. I really want to try a stick foundation but I don't love full coverage. I prefer a medium or sometimes a light:)

I have an extremely oily t-zone. I love full coverage to hide my dark spots and I expect a matte look. Would it meet my expectations?
