BEAUTY|bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Hydrating Foundation Stick Review

21 August 2020

Some products are favourites because they look pretty or because they are from your favourite brand. Foundation Sticks are one of my favourite products to use because they are so easy and versatile. Over the year I've own them from various places and brands from High End (Hourglass) to Mid Range (Lush) and even Budget Friendly brands too like Revolution Beauty.

The bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Hydrating Foundation Stick is described by the brand as "A clean, water-based liquid foundation in a stick that combines hydrating skincare benefits and SPF with naturally radiant, medium coverage". It applies very similarly to other foundation sticks that I have used in the past and I do agree that the coverage it gives is a medium coverage. Once applied and blended into the skin, the foundation has a light feeling and doesn't appear or feel cakey or blocking on the skin, which has happened previously.

Application for this product is quite simple, you either can apply to a brush and blend in that way or you can do what I do which is to apply straight to the skin and then blend out that way. I prefer applying straight to the skin as that way I get to draw things on my face before making them disappear. My personal preference is to draw cat whiskers on my cheeks as I feel that gets the product where it needs to be PLUS it's fun and that's the real reason we apply make up...for the fun of it.

This foundation comes in 20 shade ranging from 01 Opal for fair skin with cool undertones to 11.5 Mahogany for deep skin with neutral undertones. For reference I bought and use the first shade Opal and it matches perfectly.

Overall I really enjoy this foundation and I have been impressed with it so far but as I said at the beginning for me a stick foundation has to be rather poor for me not to like it. It is also perfect to travel with due to its size and compact shape so I will be definitely be using it again on my next trip.

Again there is a few possible FAQs at the end of this post in case you want to know anything but for this post I shall leave you here.
