I was nervous to try this. It's so creamy and easy to blend around using a brush. It lasts pretty well throughout the day and the coverage is decent. I think this would be nice for all skin types

I love this stick foundation! I used to use the Hourglass stick but I ran out and just didn't want to pay that much money again. Since this is also available at Ulta I used a coupon on it to get a better deal and I love it!. I use the Too Face Hangover Primer with it and it always leaves my face flawless! I have combination skin and it works! 
I love this stick foundation! It glides on like a dream. It is so creamy without ever being cakey or thick. The only thing that is does negatively is accentuate dry spots. So if you have dry skin be sure to moisturize before using this obe! Another perk to this stick foundation are the skin loving ingredients in it's formula. So natural and healthy!

I never tried a foundation stick before this so I really didnt know what to expect. It was a lot easier to work with than I thought, it buffed out really well with a foundation brush. It has medium to full coverage, definitely buildable, Only complaint is that it clings to dry patches so be sure to use a hydrating primer or a moisturizer before hand.

The Tarte Amazonian Clay stick is amazing! I was skeptical about it but, holy moly it’s awesome! It goes on so smoothly, buildable coverage, hydrating, made my skin feel & look airbrushed & it covered my blemishes. I highly recommend this foundation! As a freelance makeup artist, I will be purchasing several of these in multi skin tones to add to my kit!

Review for: Fair-Light Neutral more...
This feels weightless and natural on the skin, it does blend nicely. The stick makes it easy to apply, I am usually not a fan of sticks they tend to be dry or cakey but I like this one! I had to apply two or three layers to get my desired coverage. Blemishes and discoloration still showed through one layer. The shade matches perfectly.

This foundation was super buildable, and very easy to blend. The only issue I had with it was that it’s difficult to apply the correct amount the first time. Like I said though, it’s buildable so even though it’s a cream and not liquid, you can still get the coverage you want. It also works very well with my skin which is combination.

I really like this product I mean for a stuck foundation you only have to use a little bit because if too much gives a cake look which isn't my goal but it's a good foundation

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?
