bobbi brown stick foundation

I can't believe that I have never talked about this product before.

This is Bobbi Brown's famous stick foundation.

I say this because, if you purchase department store cosmetics and love Bobbi Brown, you probably already own this foundation.

It's such a great item to have in your makeup bag. When I'm in a hurry, a couple of quick swipes under the eyes and around the nose are all I really need.

The other great thing about this foundation stick, is the wide array of colors it comes in...from porcelain to espresso. I have even heard of people buying two different colors and blending them together to get a "custom" foundation, especially for those transitional times of the year (for when you go from pale to tan and back again). You could also purchase an additional one a shade lighter than your skin tone, to use as an under-eye concealer.

If, for some reason, you can't find your shade with the Bobbi Brown stick foundation...look no further than your local Target or Walmart. The gorgeous and multi-talented Iman, has recently added her ever famous cosmetic line to both of those stores.

Her stick foundation, fairly new to the line, comes in a great range of colors for Latina, Asian, and African-American skin tones.

Although I have never actually tried her stick foundation, I have heard some good reviews. It's also inexpensive enough ($13.99) to buy more than one color, if you find yourself between two different shades.

If you have tried either of these foundation sticks, please feel free to leave a comment below. We'd love to hear from you and hear about your experiences with these products.
