5 Drugstore Foundation Sticks That Will Help Simplify Your Makeup RoutineMay 03, 2021
Whether you’re rushing to get ready in the morning or you just prefer a minimalistic makeup routine, foundation sticks are the base for you. All you need to do is swipe on the stick and blend it — which you can do with your fingertips if you’re really short on time. Foundation sticks don’t have to break the bank either. Here, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite drugstore foundation sticks that are perfect for when you’re crunched for time or are feeling low-maintenance.
This product comes with a matte foundation on one end and a mini sponge on the other for blending. A huge benefit to stick foundation is that you can use it multiple ways — buy a slightly darker shade to contour with, a lighter one to highlight or a shade that matches your skin tone to spot conceal with.
This gel foundation stick feels lightweight and breathable on the skin while still providing medium coverage. It has a matte finish with a powder core in the middle to keep your skin from getting shiny midday, so it’s perfect for oily complexions.
This creamy foundation stick glides on with buildable, medium-to-full coverage. And while we don’t recommend sleeping in your makeup, that coverage can last for up to 24 hours. As a bonus, this foundation contains broad-spectrum SPF 27.
If you’re a full coverage foundation lover through and through, this is the ideal stick for you. It’s matte, transfer-resistant for up to 12 hours and contains bamboo powder to absorb excess oil. It’s buildable too, so you can apply a little extra over redness or breakouts.
This medium coverage stick blurs pores with a translucent gelling polymer and a soft powder finish. Hyaluronic acid moisturizes and helps the formula glide on easily.
