Hourglass Vanish seamless foundation stick review

The Hourglass stick foundation has quickly become a favourite of mine.

what colour I wear?

I am about a Mac nc 40 and I got the colour golden, which I picked because of the yellow undertone! Its SO yellow, and I absolutely love that, it cancels out most of the discolouration around my mouth area, without a corrector! They have a massive range of shades for you to choose from!!

how much is this product? 

56$ cdn ( sephora.com)

Why I love this product? 

Its full coverage! which is ideal for me! The formula is so concentrated, therefore it offers ultimate coverage! It is waterproof and wears 12 hours, which I can stand by. I sometimes wear my foundation for 18+ hours and this does last! It covers all my scaring/discolouration better than any foundation I have previously tried. its not drying when applied, its a super soft texture that melts into my skin! also on days where I don't feel like wearing a full face, I take a very small amount and really buff it around and I can get a very natural coverage or the "no foundation look" with it as well! I do use a brush to blend this I do prefer this with a brush not a beauty blender. I did purchase the brush that hourglass came out with, however I felt it streaking and I just didn't like the finish! I use the it cosmetics foundation buffing brush, and together these two are a dream. since I have purchased this foundation ( re purchased 3 times so far) I haven't picked up another foundation! Also the shape of the stick allows you to get into all those hard to reach areas! I love that it blurs pores without looking caked or heavy, it really feels weightless.

what I don't like about this product? 

It does come at a higher price point and doesn't last that long! It isn't the best for oily skin, however its still manageable with primers and setting powders to control oil! I usually set with a translucent powder, and blot my t zone 5-6 hours in!
