The texture of this Foundation Stick is mousse-to-cream like. Quite dry to touch, not overly creamy which means it isn’t a breeze to blend with the fingers (which I am quite a fan of). This is one of those foundations that you’re definitely better off blending with a buffing brush as it gives a more seamless finish. I use the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush and Buffing Brush alternately with this foundation and they work perfectly.
I find that it tugs a bit on the skin while blending, even with the brushes, as the texture of the Stick and my skin don’t meld well together. The best way for me to get a really smooth application is to apply this after putting on my moisturizer. It’s much more workable this way.
The coverage is definitely medium as you’ll see in the photos below. With this, I find that I don’t need to pile on the concealer because it does a pretty good job covering up the dark circles on its own. Right after blending, I initially thought the foundation looks a bit too flat on me and almost to the point of cakey but after 10-15 minutes – it sets to a softer, more natural-looking finish.
So don’t be scared when you apply this and feel like how I felt above, you have to give it time to settle down fully. An issue I encountered with this though, is it has a tendency to cling on to dry patches so you have to moisturize prior, let the moisturizer dry down a bit and then put this on. It will give you the most beautiful medium-full coverage that doesn’t scream “I’VE FOUNDATION ON, PPLZ!”

This foundation is amazing for dry skin. Its so smooth and blends so well on the skin. I just sweep it a couple of times on my cheeks, forehead, nose and chin and just blend it using a beauty blender or just my fingers. it blends equally well using my fingers also. It does not dry out the skin at all and keeps it looking so hydrated. i set using a light powder and lasts really long. Coverage is awesome and be built thought i feel just one layer is enough even for a formal night out. I prefer to use this during the night since it photographs so well and doesnt have a flash back. The packaging is also really chic, comes in a black lipstick kind of the bottle and you can twist to get the product out. Pricewise it is a little expensive but i find it totally worth it. Makes the skin look satin soft.
