Hourglass Vanish Foundation Stick Review 

Standard

Hi guys! Welcome back to our blog. Christine is posting tomorrow so that is exciting! Anyways, I have been doing so many reviews but I have just been picking up so much new “cult favorite” products lately that I have to let you all know what I think about them! Here is my answer to whether this hourglass foundation stick is a good investment:

Promise: long lasting foundation stick with the fluidity of a liquid, coverage of a concealer and weightlessness of a powder for light and full coverage (sephora)


Overview:

  • Cruelty free!
  • Price: $46 (pretty high end)
  • Medium to buildable full coverage
  • Satin finish
  • 26 shades available (😍)
  • Can be used on all skin types according the the website

My skin type: dry to normal and mostly clear

My shade:


This wears beautifully for me and does not come off until the eleven hour mark. I absolutely love that they actually had a shade that matches me because I’m usually never able to find anything light enough! This really was one and done, I didn’t need concealer or powder afterward at all. It is soft and not dry at all when coming straight out of the tube and it doesn’t look unnatural which I love. It blended well with my neck and did not look like a mask at all. The coverage for me was medium to on the fuller side when I applied it with a stippling brush.

Swatch:


Pros:

  • Fast to apply
  • Good coverage
  • Cruelty free!
  • Good shade range
  • Satin finish is really pretty!
  • Good wear time
  • Looks so natural
  • Blends easily with any tool
  • Isn’t dry when coming out of the tube

Cons:

  • can get cakey if you let it sit too long before blending it
  • Sticks slightly to my dry patches but that is fixable if you moisturize right before

How I apply it:


The cons definitely are outweighed in this situation and I absolutely love this foundation. It is what I use whenever I need more coverage than usual for an event or just because I feel like a dramatic look, and I would recommend it to all of you guys! Also let me know if you want a review on the charlotte tilbury shadow sticks that I picked up, do you guys want to see that?

  1. I used the Anastasia Stick Foundation and found it was to drying. This looks nice! I usually don’t like a satin finish but I would opt for it if I was only going out for a couple of hours. Plus, I’m a sucker for packaging and this is so sleek! Good review and post. xo

  2. Great review! I thought about purchasing this (and I still might) because I wanted to give the whole stick foundation trend a try. I was hesitant because I wasn’t sure if I could use a beauty blender to blend it out as I don’t LOVE brushes, they always seem to irritate my dry patches. But I may read up a little more and give it a go! xoxo

  3. I’ve heard such great things and this foundation, definitely tempted to give it a try. I didn’t realize how full coverage it was until I saw the swatch on your wrist. It looks so impressive. Great post, girl!

    • I hope you do! Read some other reviews just in case before you buy because it’s so expensive! Girl, this brand is amazing, their line is all so luxe and great quality. Thank you so much!
