The latest addition to Benefit's foundation line comes in oh-so-convenient stick form. The long-wearing formula has light to medium coverage that you can build up to your desired intensity. Lightweight powders and shea butter in the formula ensure the foundation goes on smoothly and blends in seamlessly so you never have to worry about cakeyness.
This stick foundation goes above and beyond by offering some serious skin care benefits. The formula is chock-full of powerful anti-aging ingredients including ceramides, which help repair your skin barrier, and peptides, which plump and tighten skin. Color pigments are coated in amino acids to provide medium to full coverage.
For medium coverage with a matte finish, look no further than this vegan stick foundation. Seamlessly cover up redness and unwanted tones with this creamy formula, which contains Amazonian clay, a signature Tarte ingredient, and vitamins C and E.
Hyaluronic acid is beloved, thanks to its incredibly hydrating properties — and now you can find it in this stick foundation. The moisturizing formula can be used as a foundation, concealer, and contour product. Made especially for normal to dry skin, this stick foundation imparts a major dose of dewiness for those who need it most.
