I’m usually a liquid foundation gal but lately I’ve wanted to venture back into the cream foundation world. Not long ago OFRA Cosmetics introduced their new foundation sticks and I picked up a few at The Makeup Show NYC.
So the OFRA Cosmetics Foundation Stick comes in 7 oil-free shades with silk peptide and vitamins A, E & C. I chose shades 22 and 29. Why these two? Multipurpose reasons of course! By using a shades lighter and darker than me, I can blend the colors to create a match all year long regardless of tanning. Contour and highlight is also another reason. It also lightens my makeup kit since I don’t have to carry numerous foundation colors.
I find it easier to control coverage using cream foundation and I don’t have to rush to blend like I do with liquid. I also have less breakouts and allergy issues. I don’t know why but with most liquid foundations I seem to sneeze a lot shortly after application. Weird! I find these foundation sticks less messy than the pans and compacts I’ve used in the past so I really like the packaging. The size of the twist tube is user friendly for my child size hands and the cap is easy to pop off yet snug enough to protect the product when not in use.
OFRA foundation sticks already have primer in them so I simply used my vitamin C cream to moisturize as usual. Then I used both foundation sticks, blending just enough for medium coverage instead of full coverage. Afterward I applied some matte finishing powder. Done! No heavy look or feel, no creasing, no transfer and my makeup lasted 7 hours before I washed it off. I’m pleased. OFRA Cosmetics Foundation Sticks retail for $29.95 at the OFRA Cosmetics website.
