Benefit Play Sticks ($34) why we love it: A cream to powder foundation stick that helps promote a healthy complexion while giving natural-looking coverage. Scribble in any fun shape and blend for a satin-matte finish.
what else you need to know: With a variety of silky-smooth shades to choose from, there’s a play stick to flatter every skin tone!
I got this foundation because I needed/wanted a foundation I could just toss into my bag and quickly apply when I was in a rush. A lot of people really like this foundation, but I don’t. When the Benefit SA applied this on me, it looked awesome! It provided great coverage and was long lasting. It wasn’t greasy or oily, and you could hardly tell you had it on. The following couple of days I gave this foundation a try. For some reason when I applied it, I didn’t get the same great finish and results the day I bought it. It really accentuated my dry spots, and I had difficulty blending it. It just did not go on smoothly. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong, because I used the same exact brush and technique as the Benefit SA. I haven’t chucked it yet. I’m hoping the bad results had to do with my funky skin. Because I really want to like this foundation, I’m willing to give it a second try.
