The pros of Quickstick are its beautiful, minimalistic packaging and its full coverage. The cons are its color selection and the fact that it comes off on the shirt of everyone you hug. It's nice to have in a pinch, but not durable enough for everyday wear.

I really like this product! Altough it is pricy for a drugstore brand, but it is worth it! The shade range is pretty good, 9 total shades i think.
After I put this on, my mom commented on how smooth my skin looked.

This ended up too powdery for me, though I like the stick for ease of application.

Yet another HG from L'Oreal! This is the only foundation I have used that actually has a shade light enough for my skin (I use the Soft Ivory) and that doesnt clog my pores. All you need is a little and it stays there, covers perfectly where you need it and is controllable unlike liquids which make a mess IMHO. It has a matte finish, and if you use just enough it doesnt feel like you're wearing any makeup on your face at all. Goodbye war-paint, hello QuickStick!

I truly love how easy this is to apply. So much faster than liquid. The finish is nice, and since I get a little overexcited with liquid and put too much on frequently, this is great since you can control exactly how much you want on. I stopped using it 3 years ago, thinking it was making me break out, but (having repurchased and worn for the last 6 months) it turns out the cheap stick concealer was the culprit. It has SPF- YAY! Sadly, the lightest color is no longer a good match for my skin. Too dark. Rats. If I ever get a bit of a tan, I'm buying this again, but for now... just too dark. So a 4 for not too many choices of color.

Ok, I've finally decided to accept it. This just does not work for me. After being curious about it forever a super generous MUA'er was nice enough to send one to me! :D The color was Sun Beige. I'm a golden toned MMM/GGG and the depth of the color was perfect but it was a little too pink toned. (Apparantly pink + gold = orange, btw...:p)
The packaging is nice, although I did keep mixing it up with my BE retractable face brush. Grr! I love the whole 'quick' thing but this looks SO bad on me. My skin is normal and somehow this is chalky and greasy at the same time...? Hrm. No matter HOW I applied it, and believe me I *tried*, it looked just oh so very wrong. Masky, thick, heavy...Ouch. So yeah, it covered, but so does clay.
Oh well. Give it a try anyway, some people swear by it so it works for someone...that someone just doesn't happen to be me. :p

I came back to this product after about 3 years, and I still like it. It works as a concealer if you just like a light touch, and if you apply more heavily it gives a smooth finish. Don't know how it compares with the more expensive brands, but for my money it works great. I use nude beige (a slightly yellowish shade) which is good for my fair/rosy complexion.

This stick certainly has coverage but unfortunately the staying power isn't great. I won't buy it again but will use the one I have for touch ups on nights out.

I wanted to like it but just could not. It's a strange product, at least for me, because it was greasy but sort of powdery/chalky at the same time. No thanks.

I decided to buy this b/c of all the raves reviews about it. I bought this in PALE, and it is a really great foundation. I have oily/acne prone skin, and this is perfect for my skin type. It makes me look like I have flawless skin, which I certainly do NOT have. It covers redness really well, and it makes my pores look alot less noticeable. I also love how quick and easy it is to apply. It's also great to carry around in your purse for touch ups. I definitely will continue to repurchase this.

I tried this because I couldn't afford Bobbi Brown foundation stick. L'oreal Quickstick is about a third of the price of the BB. I got sand beige chamois, hoping to duplicate sand in BB. It applies and blends pretty much as well as BB. It is not any more "long lasting" than BB. Edited: At first I thought it was passable, but then noticed that sometimes there were little bits of the foundation on my skin that balled up during the day. Uck. Thumbs down on this for me. I have very sensitive skin and this didn't irritate or itch my skin, so that is worth mentioning. Still, no go.

I didn't believe such a stick foundation even existed!!! long wearing, dead-on color match, controls oil, quick & easy, portable... you name it... wow!!! I finally got my li'l hands on this baby.... woooohoooo!!! lol... I have this stick in my purse always... carry it wherever I go... perfect for both makeup before going out AND a quick touchup... and the texture is wonderful... turns into a smooth powder on the face... an easy 5 lipsticks!!! :D

I don't get the hype on this one. I found very chalky and I have oily skin. I really wanted to like this as it would be great to find a cheaper alternative to my Lancome foundation Tient Idole, but no dice. I hate this stick.

This makeup looked very pretty when I first put it on, but shortly after it settled into my fine lines and looked very bad under my eyes. It settled into my pores and looked greasy around my nose. Stick makeup and compact makeups just don't work for me. I have to use makeup that dries on my face.

For me, this product has its pros and cons. I do not use this all over my face because I really only like to use foundation in key areas to cover redness and large pores. For this is works well. I like using it around my nose and on my chin. It covers the redness in these areas well, and it dosn't settle into my pores...it makes them disappear! I also like how quick and easy it is to apply. This is my very first time using a stick foundation. It is creamy going on, and dries to a powder finish. And it wears well through the day. I think that if I used this allover it would be too chalky for my dry areas, but great for key spots like the nose and chin where I am more prone to oilyness. I lucked out and got a good color match (I am NW 20 and purchased soft ivory). I like that it has SPF 14 (why not 15 though???). And I really love the elegant silver packaging, it definatley looks high end from the packaging. But, for a drugstore product it is pretty pricey at $10.99 (i believe, but I was able to get it on a BOGO free L'oreal sale). I would purchase this again, but with so much product, I don't know when I will ever run out!

I bounce back and forth between Nude beige and natural beige due to the everchanging skintone. Finally, a stick foundation that stays matte on oily skin girls! the price is right too!

I have been using this foundation for the last two years and I love it! A thin coat covers very well and it's so light you don't feel like you're wearing foundation at all. I also like the matte finish it gives. I have pale skin and I use the color Nude Beige (instead of the lighter colors) - it's a perfect match. I highly recommend this one!

Love this foundation, quick and easy to use, blends well and covers most imperfections.
Unfortunately it has been discontinued over here in Aus! Arrghhh... now I have to look for another foundation.

I really wanted to like this product. Actually, I like it, but my oily/combo skin doesnt. I wore it every day for 2 weeks and my skin started to break out in fine bumps on my forehead, chin, and sides of my face, nothing drastic but none the less very annoying to try and treat each night to clear up. Perhaps its the long wearing effect that caused the breakouts? My face was shiny around my T-zone by lunchtime as well. I will still use this as an under eye concealor though. I did like the silky texture and packaging though. I am still on the seach for another "stick" foundations if anyone has other suggestions. Darn!

I kept hearing raves about this, and I had to buy it. Well, I like it, a lot! It is a perfect product for me, concealer, sunscreen and cover in one easy to use stick. I have the pale and while its not an exact match, blended it looks fine. It is perfect for putting under eyeshadows. I will definitely be getting this again.
