I've been sitting on this review forever, but Tracy's review inspired me to get off my ass and edit the photos, ha!
I don't typically wear foundation all over my face every day, but I like to get conceal redness along my jawline, and I also wanted something sunscreen-free that I could wear for photo-heavy occasions (like attending weddings). For a while, I was just using concealer (NARS Creamy Concealer), but I thought I'd give a stick foundation a try, because it's easier to travel with (it doesn't need to go in the clear liquids bag for carry-ons).
|In direct sunlight.|
And I think it does that. But I'm also a little bit confused. Here, I'll show you. I apply it in stripes and then buff it out with a damp Beauty Blender. I've also tried it with a flat top foundation brush, which is nice, but a little heavier in coverage. Below, I've shown the effect with a Beauty Blender. (All photos are in natural light, although I realized that I am wearing physical sunscreen in the photos below).
|My skin has been horrible lately, I do not understand. I thought we were through being drama queens, but I guess we didn't leave that in high school, after all. All photos taken in natural light.|
|Same as the photos above, but after bronzer and the rest of the "full face" type stuff - eyes, brows, etc.|
|No weird patchiness obvious here, right? Again, I applied the MUFE stick here mostly along the cheeks/jawline, but I wanted to show you the front view.|
|Did my brows, eye makeup, and blush, and undereye concealer.|
And then a full face, all the makeup shot.
|Full face afterward. Also, I used powder. Lipstick is Dior Frimousse.|
I'd be curious to hear how it compares to, say, the TF or Bobbi Brown stick foundations. Anyone know?
