Recently pulled this from the back of the makeup drawer. At my age coverage is to heavy caked this thick. I will use as spot concealer for the odd red bump. I tried a few different applications damp beauty blender, foundation brush not pretty. Very drying and shows eye lines nicely.

As a self-professed makeup connoisseur I felt slightly ashamed that I had never tried this before. Apparently its been around for a long time and was Bobbi Brown's first foray into foundations thus acquiring something of a cult status in the beauty community. Stick foundations aren't really my "thing" but I was attracted to the convenience factor for a quick makeup application. Swipe a stick over your face, blend it out and your foundation is done in 5 minutes? Sounds great. Not to mention the Sephora website boasting a skin-mimicking finish with versatile coverage and 30 perfectly calibrated skin-true shades. Seemed like a far cry from the Pan Stik formulas from back in the day. So I trundled down to the shop and purchased the Skin Foundation Stick and the new Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation in the shade Porcelain. So long story short I really wanted this to be a new staple for me and I put in due diligence to make it work i.e different moisturizers, primers, setting powders. Unfortunately no matter what I did this wore unattractively in the t-zone area every.single.time PROS - Sleek and classy packaging. Looks expensive (good because it is expensive) - Can be carried around for touch-ups, good for travel etc- Comprehensive shade range with realistic undertones - Applies somewhat easily but still requires a fair amount of blending with a buffing brush - Beautiful demi-matte finish that looks like natural skin. Not greasy or heavy looking - Good for beginners CONS - EXPENSIVE AF - Looks lovely when first applied but wears off in a strange way i.e loses coverage in the t-zone and goes patchy and cakey - Can grab onto flakes even after exfoliation and moisturizer - Wouldn't say its much quicker than applying liquid if you are someone who is used to applying foundation and can get in done in 5 mins

I didn’t like it whatsoever. I wanted to love it, I really did but I just couldn’t. It sat on my face like clay and maximized my pores. It wasn’t very blendable and sticky.

I love this foundation! I'm normally a devoted fan of liquid (specifically MUFE Water Blend) but I wanted something portable for travel. I tried the Hourglass Vanish stick, which is waaaaaay too yellow for my neutral/cool skin, and I almost bought MUFE HD Stick, but I couldn't get samples...I found samples of this BB stick on eBay and I was off to the races -- I picked up Cool Sand 2.5, which is an excellent match for my NW20 skin. To repeat, I love this foundation. It's SO easy to apply -- I just swipe it on and blend (I use my HG foundation brush, MAC 170), then I buff PF mineral powder on top and then use setting spray to soften the look. This foundation gives low-medium coverage which is perfect for me -- my freckles shine through and I feel like my skin looks really natural and pretty. Lasting power is above-average: it looks pretty good after 10 hours of wear, and it's easy to do a touch-up. I haven't had any skin issues from this product (but I'm not acne-prone), and did I mention how easy it was to use and travel with? It's also perfect for those times you just need to slap makeup on and be out the door...like when you hit snooze four times and it's 7:15 and oh sh*# I need to get ready for work! Hahaha. I will definitely repurchase this...although the stick seems huge and I don't use a lot so I hope it lasts a long time. Retails for $46 at Sephora, and is well worth it, IMHO.

I became a foundation wearer thanks to buying this for the first time last year. I was actually planning on buying another Bobbi Brown foundation but they only had the foundation stick in my shade, so I opted for the foundation stick. I really enjoyed the fact you can use it very sparingly, only on the areas you need (for me, the reddishness in the t-zone) and I found a shade that perfectly suited my skin tone (2.25), so it blends in nicely with the rest of my face.I typically use it on my nose, chin and forehead just above my eyebrows, and blend it out with a Shiseido foundation brush (which is very similar to the Bobbi Brown foundation brush but significantly cheaper). It blends to a powdery, natural looking finish. I sometimes use a light powder over it since my combination skin does tend to get oily around the nose. It wears nicely throughout the day.Because I only use it for the areas needed, and I don't have to go "full face" every time I use it, I find you can get a very long use out of it. The price is high, and I would love to find a cheaper dupe that matched perfectly in both tone, texture and finish, but right now this product it very much worth re-purchasing for me. Some days I still go without foundation, but the days when I want to even out my skin tone and look "perfected", this really is a great go to product.

I've been using this product for several years now and I really find it great, it goes on smoothly and it's easy to apply to the areas that need it without doing your whole face, especially if you just need a quick fix. Most of the time I dab or streak it on my face then use a damp beauty blender sponge and sometimes I just use my fingers, either way works well. It lasts a lot longer that you would expect and I like that it's not in a bottle which over time becomes contaminated. I just bought new one but did happen to notice on here other companies also have foundation sticks so would maybe like to try out another brand in the future.

It gave me polka dot pores on my nose, even with Dr Brandt Pores No More primer underneath.

I generally have normal to dry skin, and I did not have problems with this stick foundation. My morning make up routine is so easy with this product- a streak here, here and there, and blend. I've tried other products since and I've returned to BB. Although, I have never found any Bobbi Brown representatives helpful in color matching.

I never planned on buying this product because I wanted to get the hourglass stick foundation. Since hourglass isn't available in my country, I gave it a thought that I should give this a try as to see whether stick foundation works on me or not. To be honest I was a little bit scared after reading some reviews about how this foundation kind of gives a cakey feeling and even cause breakouts in some cases. Add to that was the fact that I had to buy one shade lighter because they ran out of stock for my shade. The foundation is in stick (for an obvious reason). I believe it comes in 15 shades which is quite a lot, so there is something for everyone. I apply directly out of the bullet into my face. I did half face with beauty blender and half face with buffing brush. I personally feel that buffing brush creates more universal look. I did not see how this foundation gives you a full coverage. I applied the foundation generously and felt that it gives me a sheer towards medium coverage. I tried to build it up and it gives an extra coverage but not as much as I would hope for. It is not hydrating but definitely light weight. I like how I am able to squeeze 6 hours of this foundation. I never had to do touch up or blot my face and after 6 hours the foundation is still intact and true to color. It really paid of trying out this one.
