Oh, products in stick form, how I love thee. Your simple packaging, easy application, and variety of colors, really what is not to love? Basically nothin' I tell ya. Want to know which made the cut? Keep on reading, babe!
Alright, here's the line up. Now isn't that just nice? Just looking at it makes me happy! Now let's see what I like these babies for, and how they perform.
W3ll People Narcissist Foundation Stick in #1
First up, W3ll People Foundation / Concealer Stick in 1. Now this guy isn't my favorite for foundation, I find it just too thick, but under eye concealer? Now that I get down with. With it's perfect pink undertone and fabulous coverage, this cancels out all of those pesky blue circles. Which come on, I spend far too many nights writing these posts instead of sleeping. The things I do for green beauty! Anyways, I love this stuff. Totally brightening and pretty fool proof with it's stick application. Hail yes. Interested? Sample here, full size here.
Vapour Atmosphere Luminous Foundation Stick in 135
Next in the line up is the Vapour Beauty Luminous Foundation Stick in 135. Sure, it says for foundation, but want to know a secret? I use this bad boy for my contour! I got this in quite a few shades darker than my skin tone(I am 123 for the face for reference) and man is it perfect. What makes this contour so special? Well, it's super natural which is fantastic. Contouring can be so scary because trust me, I have been down the 'looks like you have mud on your face' track, and this doesn't do that at all! In fact, for my fair skinned gals this is a fabulous trick. The finish of this is just like skin, and since my problem area is my cheeks I like having that extra bit of coverage there. Again, total must have. I think this may even be my favorite of the bunch! You want in? Sample here, but trust me, you're going to want it full, and that is right here.
Vapour Aura Multi-use Stain in 'Lure'
Now let's get some color up in here. Another Vapour product, because what can I say? I love Vapour so much! This is their Multi-Use Lip and Cheek Stain in 'Lure.' This is perfectly flushed skin in a cute little tube. The first time I applied this I caught myself in the mirror a few times and thought to myself "guuuurl, now THAT is some healthy looking skin." That's the best way I can describe it! It's as if you just stepped outside into the snow and your cheeks got perfectly rosy. You know, except without all the snow and winter attire. This Floridian approves. Again, samples can be found here, and the lovely full size right here.
Hush & Dotti Chubby Stick in 'Sandy's Tawny Brown'
Last, but certainly not least is a new love of mine, the Hush & Dotti chubby stick in 'Sandy's Tawny Brown.' Now, despite this being way less brown and far more peachy, it still captures my heart. Hush & Dotti is a line I haven't heard too much about (and once I can get my paws on some new releases I will have a full review) but this formula is actually kind of amazing. The perfect product for girls who really don't like cream blushes, but love the ease of application. This product has the perfect cream to powder finish that is blend-able beyond belief. Throw this in your purse for the easiest touch ups, dare I say ever, and you are good to go! They have a variety shades (and I want em' all) which are available right here.
Before I sign out, I couldn't leave you guys without some swatches. From left to right we have the W3ll People, Vapour Foundation / Contour (I know, it looks like jaundice but looks amazing on the face), the Vapour Blush Stain in Lure, and the Hush & Dotti Chubby Stick. Gorgeous, right?! Want to see some of these in action? I used them in a tutorial right here.
