I have already used foundation in stick form by the German brand Kryolan, but when my eye caught Maybelline‘s version of the stick foundation, I had to give it a shot.
Product Description: It’s one-step perfection. The first of its kind – lightweight gel stick foundation with an anti-shine powder core
Packaging: It comes in a cylindrical swivelled tube; the transparency of the cap allowing a peek into the shade of the foundation.
My thoughts: Talking about its formulation, its creamy and a perfect one, but the fact that it it meant for oily-skin is downright a wrong claim. I kid you not guys, I have a kind of oily-skin that you can even fry an egg, and this foundation really doesn’t sit well with it.
I just slather it over my face and blend it with a beauty blender. Speaking of this, it blends really well and quite easily. However, after only 3-4 hours, my face looked as if I had a bottle of oil toppled over my face. The element “shine-free” , sadly, wasn’t there. To add more to my disappointment, it oxidizes real quick and bad. *sigh*
In my view, I believe its opposite the claim that it is formulated keeping in mind the oily skin, i.e., it would be more suitable for a lady who has dry skin. But still, longevity issue is a problem as it only lives up till 3-4 hours.
-Not meant for oily skin
Price and Availability: I got mine from Imtiaz Superstore. Other than this, it is available at all Maybelline booths at leading stores nationwide. It is priced at PKR 1699.
