Alright so stick foundations isn’t really a trend I cared to get in on for overall application but I think they would be super convenient for contour, especially since you would likely get more product than you would from a concealer. I picked up the Anastasia Beverly Hills foundation stick in the shade Almond, for dark medium tan skin with cool undertones.
It’s actually not as dark as I was expecting when I look at it in the package; I wanted something more “brown”, this foundation stick is actually pretty close to the bronzer that I currently use for contouring. I guess I should have guessed that it would be like that since it says “dark medium tan“. The packaging is really nice; it feels good in the hand and I love the rose gold. Doesn’t really seem like there’s a ton of product for $33 CAD but I did get it on sale during the VIB Rouge 15% off. 0.32oz of product, a liquid foundation would have 1oz + on average. Price wise, not something I would buy if I were applying it to my whole face every day.
This is far too orange for me. My first try it went on very thick and pigmented, it wasn’t like I could put it on lightly and then build it up. It wasn’t as creamy as I would have liked so it didn’t blend very easily. For my second try I turned it and applied using the edge to get a thinner line. This worked a little better, but still didn’t blend as well as I would like and it’s very orange.
They do make shades intended for contouring so next time I will just wait for those to be in stock.
