MAKE UP FOR EVER – Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation
Price: $50 CAD
Size: 0.44 oz
Shade: 120 = Y245 Soft Sand
Recently I was watching a lot of NikkieTutorials on Youtube and loved how this foundation looked on her so I went and purchased one for myself.
The foundation comes in a thick plastic ‘stick’ much like a lipstick it twists up and down. The casing is solid black with a clear top so you can see which shade it is. The cap clicks into place when closed which is always a plus and closes pretty tightly so chances of the cap falling off is low. Overall, the packaging is travel friend, comes in a good side, and has a cap that clicks well into place. (Also because it is creamy it will not leak all over your makeup bag).
The foundation is a creamy stick formula that makes application easy. You can apply the product to the specific area you want and blend it out lightly. Because of the stick formulation I found that you can slightly contour your face with these sticks just by applying a darker shade to the outer area of your face and the lighter in the inner portion. The foundation’s creamy texture makes it stick well to the skin and therefore does not slide around during blending making it a high coverage. The foundation is also quick and easy to use – it applies smoothly and blensds out quickly (however I do recommend that you use a beauty blending and not a brush to blend this product). Though it is a high coverage foundation the product did not dry out my skin or become oily. Also it lasts the whole day and stays relatively put without any touch ups. On the down side I would say that this foundation is not a ‘natural’ looking foundation and is not for day to day use or a ‘no make’ makeup look (if that is what you prefer). The foundation is more of an instagram or photo friendly foundation as it looks great in photos. Overall, I recommend this product if you like a high coverage that does not look overly cakey. It also is pretty comfortable on the skin for how thick it is and wears great throughout the day but is definitely a foundation I would only use for photos or a higher ‘glam’ or heavy makeup day.
**side note I purchased the shade Soft Sand and found that the foundations do run slightly lighter than what they look like in the tube. They especially do not look as dark as they do online so I would recommend going to the store and getting colour matched before purchasing. Besides that the range of colours are decent and I was able to find one with a yellow undertone.
