5 Stick Foundations for Summer

I enjoyed helping my friend with the finishing touches for her wedding, but between the heat, the dress I had on, and the organizing, my liquid foundation wasn’t working for my oily/combo skin.

I don’t know about you but after that day, I decided to kick liquid foundation to the curb and switch to a stick foundation instead during the Summer.

Now, don’t get me wrong.  I love a liquid foundation but stick foundations takes it to another level especially during the heat. 

I already have oily to combination skin, so I don’t need an added glow in the heat.

My first stick foundation I tried was Clinique Chubby Stick Foundation. It gets the three S’s: soft, smooth, and silky. It glides on like butter. They have 8 shades. It’s definitely full coverage but gives you that natural feel and look. This foundation is for all skin types and in the Summer it doesn’t budge. 

Price: $21.70

Recommendation rate: 5/5

I’m currently using Sephora Make No Mistake Stick Foundation and Concealer stick. It’s great but it’s no glide on. It’s drying but it gets the job done. I tried it out because it was during the pandemic and other brands were out. I don’t regret my decision to at least give it a try and I was specifically looking for a stick foundation.

It’s not patchy. The color I use is Koa, which isn’t shown on their website so I guess they’re out. I have caramel skin with warm/golden undertones...just FYI.

This foundation is great for oily/combo skin so I’ll say it keeps me shine free and it’s medium coverage. 

Price: On sale for $8. 

Recommendation rate: 3/5

The last three I haven’t tried but can’t wait to. I’ve added these because I’ve either used their other products before or they’re new and I haven’t heard of them until now.

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation is one I know is great!  Their orange concealer is amazing!  It’s my holy grail concealer.  Their newest one is Ultra HD Self-setting Concealer.  I would usually use this to make my skin tone more even before applying my foundation.  

This foundation is great for all skin types.  It’s long-wearing, buildable coverage, and gives a natural finish.  There are 19 shades.

Price: $43

Recommendation rate: 5/5


Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear 5-in-1 Foundation Stick with a built in Kabuki brush

This foundation is 24 Hour wear, full coverage with a velvet matte finish, great for oily skin, non-transferable, and fragrance free. These attributes make it “5-in-1.”  Sounds like my kind of foundation.  It comes in 22 shades.

Price: $43

Lastly, Yves Saint Laurent Beauty All Hours Foundation Stick.

This is a buildable coverage foundation, oil free with its cream to powder formula, keeps you matte all day, and is weightless.

Price: $48  Use code: LASTCHANCE to get this foundation for 50% off.

I hope you found these options very helpful in choosing the right foundation for you or even trying something new.
