|Shades 110, 220|
It looks like Foundation Sticks are making a comeback and that is such a good thing. It's been so hard to find them for a few years , especially since Max Factor took their amazing Pan Stick overseas. Yes, Tom Ford makes one and it's divine, but it's also $ 78. New to the scene awhile back was one from Flower Beauty and now we have Maybelline's FIT Me ! Shine Free Stick Foundation .
Part of the FIT Me ! line these new gel based, oil free sticks like much of FIT Me ! , are lighter coverage. Not sheer but light to light/medium and coverage is buildable . They have a powder soft finish but aren't dry at all and while matte , it's more of a dewy matte. In fact they feel creamy on and then set. As with most sticks these are easy to blend .
The center of each stick has the Anti Shine Core which contains absorbent powder and silica for shine control . I have pretty oily skin this time of year so I could really test that anti shine . Overall they did a solid job. I had less oil breakthrough on the T- Zone and that area stayed looking good for hours. That's good for me.
One of the best things about a foundation stick is the ease of touch ups and that's where I will find the most use for them. It's so easy to carry these in a bag , or grab and dab on when you're about to run out the door but need a little refresh. The size makes for portability without weight or bulk. Each stick measures just over 3 " long.
FIT Me ! Shine Free Foundation Sticks will be available in July for $ 8.99
