I like this product. I use shade 0. I found that this blended well, and worked well to cover up my blemishes and things. I dont imagine it would be good for full face wear, and would probably be even better with a brush.
My only (slightly silly) complaint was how quickly the " Bobbi Brown" came off the side of the stick.
A cream foundation which is very thick, heavy and difficult to blend. I purchasd this in Sand which was very yellow in colour and looked very unnatural and obvious.
I first bought the foundation stick a couple of years ago and didn't really use it then as it seemed to emphasise any dry areas. But at the moment I am doing well with my skincare and as my skin is in a lot better condition now I thought I'd try it again. As another reviewer said, as long as my face is well-moisturised when putting on, it goes on beautifully sheer and the colour is great. I use warm ivory as I have very pale, but yellow based skin. I find it is essential to set with powder if I want it to stay on, which is a shame in a way as the finish loses some of the glow when first applied. However as the colour is a good match I will stick with it for now.
I'm really undecided about this. The color is great. It blends really easily, especially with a brush. But it's gone almost before I get out of the door. Using powder to set it is hard to judge. A little and it doesn't last, a little more and it's cake-fest for your face. I don't hate it, but I don't think I'd spend this much again for something that's just an okay product.
I only use this product as concealer and think it's just OK. It seems to heavy for the rest of my face. I am a tinted moisterizer type of gal, since I don't need a whole lot of coverage. However used as a concealer it's OK. Very yellow based but also flat & matte. No luminosity or glow, which looks a bit odd for everyday wear. Tends to crease into fine lines. I would definately wear it for photo make-up though because the coverage is so nice. Overall, I just would rate it average IMHO. Would not repurchase. continued >>
amazing finish in photographs - even if i have horrible zits, red scars on my cheeks and forehead and huge-y eyebags, this foundation stick makes me look oh-so-fresh. texture is a little oily though (i am a combo person), and coverage is not as thick as i like. staying power is average and doesn't slide and slip off like some reviewers have mentioned - then again, it's not a stand-alone product judging by the oiliness and should be topped off with a setting powder.
after looking forever for a natural looking foundation that doesn't feel heavy, i was very pleased to find this. i had never tried a stick before because they usually tell you that sticks provide heavy coverage, but since you can put on as little as you want, it is perfect for me to just cover up my redness and even out my cheeks. i also used a foundation brush for the first time, and the combinaiton has worked really well for me. as background, two weeks earlier i had bought the BB tinted moisturizer, but even though tinted moisturizer is touted as their lightest coverage product, it was really heavy to wear in the summertime and hard to blend, even with the foundation brush. this stick was much more natural looking.
i have not tried other foundation sticks, but i will probably stay with this one for a while because the color works so well with my skin.
I have this in almond and it matches my skin well and blends in swimmingly. Not as much coverage as I would like but it helps achieve the desired look. Love the ease of use and travel as well.
This goes on quite well, it has a lovely creamy texture and i can blend it in with my fingers quite well, porcelain matches my fairer than fair skin perfectly.
I went to the makeup counters today in search of a foundation stick. I already had a sample of Bobbi Brown's Natural, and I tried a MAC foundation stick but I thought it was too creamy and it felt heavier on my skin. I would not usually spend $38 on it, but I do tend to splurge on skin care and face makeup. It's a good sized tube that's easy to tote around, and gives just the right amount of coverage for redness on the cheeks or around the nose. Definitely don't forget to use a powder to set it or it will melt right off.
