For the longest time I’ve been sticking with liquid and cream foundation, or even powder foundation. I was never into stick foundation, because for some reason I just think they go on streaky and dry to the skin. Until one day, I discovered an ultimate stick foundation, Tom Ford’s Traceless Foundation Stick. It’s the one foundation stick that completely changed the world.
The packaging is incredibly smooth and sleek. The gold ring in the middle adds a luxurious accent to the dark espresso casing. The Foundation Stick comes in 15 g for $78.00 and is sold exclusively at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman.
So the color I will be showing you is 02 Pale Dune. There is a total of 12 colors available from this collection and Pale Dune is the 2nd lightest. So you really have a lot of shades to choose from.
There is one thing I found pretty neat is that after taking off the cap the inside was scattered with tiny gold shimmers all around the area where you twist and turn the foundation out. The effect is pretty cool.
Here is how the foundation looks. It almost looks like a tube of nude lipstick or some sort of a concealer.
Turning was very easy and smooth and it’s fully retractable, though I don’t recommend turning all the way out. Below shows you how much foundation the stick comes with.
Applying the foundation brings back memories of grade school. I remember in art class when I use to use glue sticks to glue things together for arts and crafts. This foundation stick is sort of like that to me. While applying the foundation I find the application is extremely easy to my surprise. It was so creamy and glides on effortless. Pigmentation is fantastic while being ultra lightweight. Take a look for yourself below for the coverage with just one single swipe.
Blending is also easy as the coverage is almost flawless. Notice how nicely it covers my blood vein and unevenness of my skin. It feels really moisturizing. The most important thing is, it’s so easy to carry around. It’s also travel friendly so I don’t need to worry about 3-1-1 anymore. For the ones who are not familiar with it, simply put there is a strict regulation about liquid product when you take an airplane. So stick foundation would be the best choice.
A foundation stick is something new to me and the idea is quite unique and catchy as well. I would have never thought that a foundation stick would work so well like my other foundations. It has the most natural finish, not too matte and not too dewy either. It looks almost like your own skin. You don’t see any “trace’ of foundation at all, hence the name traceless. I am quite impressive by how long lasting it is. I have it on all day without caking or creasing. It just stays fresh for over 10 hours. There is only one thing that I wanted from this, if it was a vanilla flavor scent it would have been perfect for my sweet tooth.
