Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good companion to play around I was getting bored with Terry and Nars. Wanted to give Hourglass a chance and purchased golden amber, which is a true match to Taho in Nars I can understand the mixed love hate reviews with everyone who's got their hands on the product. If you are used to liquid foundation, working with this stick is like chasing an illusion. Yes it vanishes on the skin and you don't have much time to play around. I use very light makeup. If I wish to look like a Geisha I will use the product all over my face. After few trial and errors, I now use this product as a concealer and use it mostly in my T zone and under eye. Then use Nars or Terry cover expert for coverage. My face literally looks as if it's photoshoped. I love the product since I figured how to work with it. It's still easy to blend with warm fingers but using a brush could lead to striking and waste, as its quite dry. A bit like watered chalk. Would not recommend it for dry skin or pimple prone skin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Little goes a long way This is one of my favourite foundations of all time. It's extremely buildable and versatile, you can get a really full coverage or a light coverage just by changing how much you apply and what you use to apply it. My favourite way to wear this is sheered out over a hydrating primer, using a dense synthetic brush to blend it out. I wear this to work, school, the beach, events, everywhere. My only issues with this foundation are that it does cling to dry patches, and can sometimes exaggerate my pores if I go for a full coverage look. It also has quite a high price and I go through it rather quickly, which is disappointing, but something I have gotten over. Other than that, beautiful finish, great colours, easy and fast to apply. Love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great foundation but made me oily I was a bit nervous about purchasing a stick foundation as I was worried it was gonna be a bit thick. However, when using a dense brush it came off really nice on the skin and made my pores really hard to see. HOWEVER I have combination skin and this foundation comes off really oily and only gets worse throughout the day, even with the use of mattifying powder on top. It's a bit of a let down but it can be dealt with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Colour match! Finally a foundation that perfectly matches my skin tone! I love the shade 'Blanc' on my skin and have not found another brand which carries such a pale foundation. The coverage can be adjusted by method of application and there is honestly no need for concealer. Although it is a little pricey for what you get, I will continue to buy this as it's the perfect match :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to foundation! I was so excited about this product so I went in store and asked the last if she can help me colour match it for me. She did a great job! I love the colour match of my foundation. It doesn't oxidise like the other foundations. Its looks thick but its very light on the face. I find that using a kabuki brush is better to blend this foundation than a beauty blender. I love this foundation and its going to be my "ride or die foundation".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Move over Nars I have been using NARS sheer glow for the past 2 years, loved it, but found during winter it was not enough coverage for me and since finding out that they won't be considered cruelty free anymore I was reluctant to use it. My skin had also become super stressed out and congested, itchy and red. The lady at Mecca recommended hourglass vanish and WOW I feel like a doll when I have this on, and not only that, it has changed my skin for the better. It seems like it just sits on the top of the skin instead of going into my pores. It's my holy grail. My only downside is that it is a very drying makeup, so dry skin ladies stay clear! Amazing for oily skin/acne. Try with and without a primer just to see how it works with your complexion :) And the best thing about it- CRUELTY FREE

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love Wasn't 100% sure about getting this, but decided to bite the bullet and get it. In the shade porcelain, I find this foundation blends out best with a dense, buffer brush. I tried it with a beauty blender but found that one of my angled buffer brushes worked best. The coverage is amazing and it blends out seamlessly. Only complaint is that it settles into my fine lines after about five hours, but I can avoid this by setting my lines with loose powder.

how well does this foundation cover acne? because I really want to buy it but I have extremely bad acne and I need to know if it will cover it well

Asked by: beautyjunkie225
It covers everything really well! Only thing is it will cling to dry patches, which was an issue for me initially until I started applying a serum before the foundation now it doesn't dry my skin at all.&nbsp;

I know this foundation is meant to be full coverage, but does anyone know how good this foundation is for rosacea/redness? Thanks

Asked by: MaddieJane16
If you have severe Rosacea then this will not cover it with just one layer of application. You would need to be generous and use tapping motion or dabbing with fingers or sponge to achieve full coverage. During the day your natural skin will eventially start to show through so you would need to use a powder to help it last longer.

Would this foundation be suitable for dry skin?

Asked by: Jan08
I had dry patches at one stage, this foundation definitely clung to them and it was as obvious as day. I recommend gently exfoliating and thoroughly moisturising the night before to even out your skin and make this foundation look flawless.

I have dry skin but during the end of the day i tend to go oily in the t-zone, is this a foundation you set with powder too? i've tried it in a sample and loved the finish but they give you such a small amount its hard to get a good read on it.

Asked by: ggamorr
I am the same, and I think no matter what your skin type you absolutely need to set this as it doesn't dry by itself. If it's not set it will slip and slide and transfer off your face at the lightest touch.

Approximately how long does this foundation last with near daily usage? I keep hearing that a little goes a long way but just how long would be helpful to know. Thanks! :)

Asked by: erinstevie
Hi :) I've bought my second HOURGLASS foundation stick end of December last year. My first lasted almost exactly 4 months and second one is looking to be the same. I use it daily (excluding most weekends) sometimes twice redoing my makeup in the afternoon and hence doing a second coat. Really recommend the brush too (vanish seamless foundation brush) - I know it gets a bit pricey but it really does give you a perfect finish! Hope this helps!
