Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 351.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Take the time to learn how to best use it I've had the vanish stick for about 3-4 months now and I thought it was OK, but I didn't love it - I had other foundations I preferred. The coverage was fantastic, but it seemed to age me a bit and look cakey on my skin. I also bought it during the summer where my skin where foundations tend to slip off a it more (I am normal-leaning combo in the usual areas). However, I have figured out how to make this look great for my winter skin months. I start with a hydrating serum, top of with a moisturising SPF and apply the Drunk Elephant's D-Bronzi serum (I only bought this to make me look a bit more tan, but it does something amazing to any foundation that I put on). Then, I dot on the vanish stick in a few areas - not too much, otherwise it'll look cakey. I buff the product in with a flat top foundation brush and only add a tiny bit more coverage where I need it. I also use the stick as a concealer (coverage = amazing) and it blends in seamlessly with your base because you're using the same product rather than a separate concealer. My skin is looking the best it ever has when I do this routine. I have knocked off a star because there isn't a lot of product for the price compared to other stick foundations and I haven't found the foundation to be as effective in the summer months for me, despite the 'long-wearing' claims. However, I'll need to try it again with my 'new-found' routine I mention above. I would definitely repurchase because it is definitely good for both foundation and concealer (not under eyes, only covering up areas on the face).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My skin but better. Got shade matched at Covent Garden store and purchase in the colour Sand. Pricey, but I don't use a lot. Dot it around my face and blend using Real Techniques face brush. It gives me a natural finish and I dont need to use powder to set. The key to success with this product is to make sure your skin is moisturised before. I also use a hydrating primer by Fenty before application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My only foundation - the best! I have normal/combination skin. I wear foundation in the evenings or when I want to look 'pulled together'. This foundation is THE BEST. I've been a big fan of Laura Mercier over the years (espceially oil free silk creme), but this just takes the lead. The price is expensive, the packaging is gorgeous. The product inside is fab. I use warm ivory. I find the warm shades in this are a beautiful tone. It blends in fabulously (I use the Hourglass buffing brush- can't comment on other methods of blending). It gives a soft/radient finish that is high (buildable) coverage.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No thanks I bought this foundation a couple of months ago and honestly it was just so disappointing. It looked okay when I first applied it, but after an hour or two it started breaking up on my nose, chin, forehead and by the 5th hour even my cheeks looked super cakey! I used a really thin layer of foundation each time I tried it, but it just looked awful. No thanks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely foundation I like this foundation a lot though I tend to use it on special occasions rather than for everyday use as it is quite heavy. Blends well, lasts well, I enjoy the stick format for a change. A good product from hourglass, and much more wearable than their otherwise overly shimmery range.
