I've always had a little soft spot for stick foundations, whether it's a bit of nostalgia (the Max Factor stick foundations were some of the first I used) or just a love of convenience that drives this I don't know but when I first saw these advertised I was very interested!
After some swatching I decided on the shades that I wanted but unfortunately the stockists near me had none available that hadn't had someone elses fingers wiped over them - I've no general OCD about this type of thing but I just think when I'm spending money on a foundation I want one that's unused and clean! So I bought it online from Superdrug*, thank you internet! The shade I got was Natural Beige.
This is marketed as a "gel foundation with an anti-shine powder core inside" which I agree with to some extent. It applies really easily and feels very smooth and soft on the skin. It blends really well and provides light-medium coverage but you can build it a bit if you need to. It doesn't feel heavy at all on the skin which I think is great for everyday wear. In terms of being anti-shine, I do still need to use powder over the top (my skin is more on the dry side but I have an oily t-zone) but then again I prefer a pretty matte look when it comes to foundation. I carry it with me too and do a bit of a top up through the day which is convenient!
Overall, I like this product and I'm happy I bought it. It's not my favourite ever foundation - that's Estee Lauder Doublewear - but it's a good, reasonably priced everyday foundation that is buildable and does what it needs to do. I would happily repurchase this to use on a daily basis and save my Doublewear for special occassions. The fact it's a stick is good for when you're on the go or carrying your make up bag around as it won't leak or crack anywhere. I think it would be a great holiday product and I wonder how good it would be to get some different shades for contouring (something I'm getting really interested in though I don't really have the skills).
