I don’t normally do beauty review posts, but I thought it would be fun to try doing one. I recently splurged on buying the Hourglass Vanish Seamless Foundation Stick, and decided to share my thoughts.
I’d had my eye on this for a while. I had heard about it from Marzia, and general positive reviews from around the internet. As with any beauty product, just because it works for someone else, doesn’t mean it’ll work well for you. But I’ve had a good run with products recommended by Marzia, so I decided to at least try it out. In store, I got matched to my shade (Ivory), and the lovely worker even agreed to fully apply it so I could see what I thought. I really liked it! So since I had saved up already, I decided to get it!
I’ve never used a foundation stick before, but this one was really great to use. It goes on really smooth and fluidly. The foundation’s formula is very concentrated, so you don’t need to use that much. Even though it’s quite concentrated, it feels very light on my face.
I apply a few dots all over my face and use a beauty blender to spread out the coverage. I used my Real Techniques expert face brush for a bit, but I find that a blender is easier to work with. I also apply more where I want to conceal, such as under my eyes. The foundation looks and feels quite natural, while still offering a lot of coverage. It has a kind of dewy finish, and lasts really well throughout the day.
All in all, I’m really happy I splurged and got this! It’s definitely high-end, but to me it was worth it. I hear a lot of praise for this foundation, but some people do have issues. It has been suggested to me to apply an oil before this foundation, to help smooth it out more, but I haven’t had any issues. If you’re able to splurge on this, I say go for it. If not, there’s heaps of amazing dupes out there too!
Have you guys every tried this foundation?
