I so wanted this to work! I have and LOVE the LSC, concealer, and sesame loose powder. They make my face look even-toned and radiant. The stick, though, isn't working and so am going to have to return it. Coverage is too thick for me, and the product shows lots of separation on my skin after about an hour of wearing (it looks as though the oils are separating from the rest of the product), especially on my nose, and I exfoliate well, so I can't figure out what's going on. Anyway, I am thrilled I found the other Becca products and will keep using them! (LSC-Cashmere, concealer-praline, powder-sesame)
Not impressed. I was initially attracted to this because of the high SPF and that it came in a stick; I figured it would be the perfect portable foundation for my bag. I live in an extremely sunny climate and SPF is everything to me. Unfortunately this just doesn't work for me. For one, the texture is gritty - I thought it was the top layer, but no, it keeps staying like this. I feel like I'm practically exfoliating when I apply this. For another, it feels heavy on my skin and the coverage is all wrong - somehow both too artificial looking and yet not covering enough. I appreciate the color selection and the SPF but this just isn't for me. For stick foundations, I vastly prefer my MAC Studio Stick.
I have this in Butterscotch, which matches my light/medium yellow-toned skintone perfectly. This is what I reach for most mornings - the coverage is great: sheer but buildable. I have to put a rich moisturizer on first b/c I have dry skin and it won't spread at all if I don't. I find that if you hit it with a blowdryer for a few seconds, that warms it up and helps the blendability considerably. Since this is sheer, I use the dual concealer for under my eyes and blemishes. It lasts for me really well if I top it with loose powder. Overall, I really love this foundation.
I love the coverage of this stick foundation: sheer to medium, buildable, and *natural*. I do find it hard to apply though and need to moisturize very thoroughly before applying. BTW, I have very oily skin and have not had a problem with this.
I dont realy like the brown packaging, but the foundation stick is the best ive used. I use it mainly as a concealer, it is creamy and blendable, and gives a great natural finish.
amazing color selection. FINALLY found a great match that's not too orange and doesn't turn orange. stick is a tad dry on me so i need to moisturize first but it stays on ALL day! hate the brown packaging :(
This is my "fail safe" foundation for days when my skin is feeling extra dry or flaky and I can´t use my Armani LSF. It is very sheer and creamy and melts well into the skin providing a natural dewy look. It does tend to slip a bit into my large pores, but nothing a little primer couldn´t fix. I love how pratical and easy the stick is to apply and Praliné is a perfect match for my neutral PPP skintone (LSF #2, Stila B). Would definitely recommend over any other stick foundation out there (for dry skins only though). UPDATE: I ended up swapping this. It felt a bit too oily and I had to set it with lots of powder, which I don´t like doing. Plus my skin does better with liquid formulas. continued >>

Unfortunately I wanted to like this foundation but after a week of using it my skin became an oil slick and nothing I used under or over this foundation helped. The color was a great match but that was the only thing I can say I liked.
OMG is this an oil slick!
I do have oily skin but never has my skin felt so coated....I work at a salon and found myself shying away from looking at anyone for too long as I feared they would ask what was on my face! LOL!!
I just tryed Cover Girl "Aquasmooth" foundation and got complements on my skin all week!!.....way cheaper and looks like satin on my skin! I have uneven skin tone but this blends it so well....anything that pops through was touched with concealer - lasted all day!
