I am always very skeptical of stick foundations like this, but decided to give it a try anyway. I actually really love it. It has great coverage, matches my skin tone well, blends well, lasts all day, and doesn't feel too heavy on my face. The price point is pretty average for a prestige brand foundation ($39). I would say it's worth it. I bought mine at Ulta, but I know it's also available at Sephora and on the Tarte Website.

This product is flawless if you apply it the right way for your skin type! Since I have combination type skin I have to dab my beauty blender into some moisturizer and then blend the foundation out, i love the finish this foundation has but it’s a bit tricky at first if it is your first time using this product. Otherwise it is amazing!

Review for: Light Medium Neutral more...
I like the natural finish on my skin. It does not feel heavy at all.. I forget I am wearing it sometimes. I did have to play around with this for a while to figure it out though. I blend it on my face with a brush to get the coverage I want. But it seems like a medium coverage foundation. I then use a sponge to press it into my skin to get it to last.. then apply the setting powder and setting spray.

This foundation is amazing. The application is so smooth but I have to use a brush rather than a beauty sponge to blend it out. It is matte but it' s not drying at all. It is comfortable to wear all day.

I was so upset when @benefitcosmetics discontinued the play stick foundation it was my all time favorite stick foundation. I tried a few other sticks but they weren't living up to my standard's. Then I tried out this stick foundation and fell back in love. It is so creamy and not heavy what so ever. Buildable and pigmented. It is long wearing but you do need to set your face. Great for dry skin!

Really great medium to full coverage foundation. Glides onto the skin so smoothly and blends perfectly. I definitely find it hard to match my shade using a single foundation stick, I usually have to blend so it would be nice to have some more variety in the shades. Give a dewy finish but is easily mattified with setting powder. Overall, I would definitely recommend.

Review for: Fair Neutral more...
This one is not for dry skin. It looked very patchy and cling to every dry area I had. I’ve tried using it with oils which was a bit better at first but then still got dry and clingy as the day went on. This does have a pretty finish and looked nice and flawless from far away but up close this was a mess! I do think it is due to my skin type so I would say more oily to normal skin types may have a better experience.

I never used a stick foundation before until this one. The formula is very creamy and blends amazing for a stick. My pores are not accentuated at all and my skin looks very smooth. It's about medium coverage however it is buildable. It needs a little more lasting power to be a go to for me but I do like it, unfortunately I get a little shiny about the 6 hour mark.

Review for: Light Medium Neutral more...
i’ve only used this a few times, but i’ve noticed as you put it on it shows all your pores. once you blend it out it’s not so mad, but i would definitely say this is medium coverage, but it’s buildable. i haven’t used it with a beauty blender yet. this feels like it just sits on the skin, rather than sinking into my pores. i will update as i use it more.

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?
