Okay, I have so many great things to say about this foundation. But first I'd like to do an ingredients list and a product description:
mineral oil, ozokerite, ethylhexyl palmitate, bis-diglyceryl polyacyladipate-2, euphorbia cerifera (candelilla) wax, tocopheryl acetate, propylparaben
Cl77891, aluminum starchoctenylsuccinate, talc, mica, Cl77492, Cl77491 (and) Cl77499, Cl77499
This product is (i'm reading from the box) is said to be both foundation and concealor, dual purpose, full-coverage, vitamin E enriched formula (i debate this, i don't clearly see vitamin E in the ingredients list, but then i'd have to be knowledgable about what each ingredient contains and im not so, i'm just sort of accepting it for what it says it is), Available in natural looking non-ashy shades. Flawless Finish, Easy to Apply. Hypoallergenic & Oil Free (i debate this as well, since the ingredients list does seem to contain mineral oil, which is not a bad thing but may anger more oilier skin types).
My take on this foundation (and concealor?):
Despite the fact that the packaging description is a little misleading, I really like this foundation. I don't use it as a concealor (i hardly ever use concealor) but it does cover my spots very well (no Retin-A here!). The texture is smooth and creamy (it does contain oil, which is good for my normal/combination skin which has the tendency to peel), it doesn't settle to a powder, which is a downside of many cream makeups. They claim that they are creamy yet they settle to a powder (fashion fair's does this, so annoying!). Although it goes on really nicely, i doesn't hold the whole entire day, touch ups are needed, but thats reasonable given that this foundation is a 10 dollar drugstore makeup. The color selection is also great (it does sometimes get hard to find good foundations for women of color). The colors go from Fair to Deep, I wear this in the light-medium. This is my HG drugstore foundation, i think (i don't think their is anything else that exists that would come closer to my needs). I did like covergirls clean sensitive skin makeup, but i was just gettiing tired of wearing liquid foundation.
The only thing I don't like about Posner's 2-in-1 makeup and concealor is that its packaged in a way that if your not careful placing the top back on you could completely ruin the top of the makeup. I hate foundation sticks that stick out from the top of the container. The top cover casing is clear so i'm guessing its a design element. But i would appreciate it more if the entire makeup went down into the case itself so that the makeup could be protected. However, I will still use this if ever I am out of my Elizabeth Arden cream and am short of money.
I would recommend this to normal and normal to dry skin types. I would not recommend this for oily and very oily skin types.

for a while now i have been experimenting with different foundations... fashion fair, iman etc. this one is the cheapest one that i've tried..however it's my favorite! my skin tone is medium brown w/ yellow undertones- the shade medium is a perfect match. the makeup goes on so smooth and looks so natural. it doesnt feel heavy on the skin at all. i have hyperpigmentation and this makeup covers it well. however, in order to get full coverage you do have to spend time building the makeup.my only gripe is that i have oily skin and this makeup offers zero oil control. so if you have oily skin, you will need to set this with a shine control,mattifying type powder.
this makeup is just much too greasy for oily skin. it has petrolatum in it, which is vaseline. im pretty sure thats the culprit. i tried wearing it with several different powders,i even went out and bought an expensive mac powder and none of them could tame the oil that this makeup caused. like clockwork,everyday by noon i was dripping with oil. this is a really good makeup though. when used with a kabuki brush,it concealed my flaws in no time. i highly recommend it to people with normal/dry skin. i read somewhere that the posner cover creme in the small pot is a better choice for oily skin. i may try that at some point and report back.

I have only been using this product for a week, but I am really impressed. It's already hot in my area (in the upper 80s) and I really don't want to slather foundation on my whole face. I usually don't even wear moisturizer on my face in the summer time. But of course, I still want coverage for some areas. I think this is it!
I bought this cover stick in medium (I am NC 45). I have been dabbing the stick on the areas where I need coverage, then blending with my fingers. I only build up the areas that need it. After my blemishes are covered, I power my face with Revlon Colorstay powder. I have examined my face in several different lights: outside in sunshine, at work, under fluorescents, and am really impressed with how natural this looks on me. I blot my t-zone during the day, reapply powder all over, but I have not needed to touch up the areas on which I used Posner cover stick (cheeks and jaw).

I got this in Medium Deep shade to cover some dark spots i had as a result of a breakout and i this gives some pretty decent coverage and it being a stick foundation its easy to carry around, it covers and goes on pretty easily on the skin and looks natural if blended properly. Very good product im a NC45 in mac just in case someone is wondering what shade i am.
