11 Foundation Sticks We Can’t Get Enough Of

Why are we so obsessed with foundation sticks, you ask? Well, for starters, you can swipe them on, blend with your fingertips, and head out the door — no brushes or sponges required. In addition to being incredibly convenient, they’re also ideal for all levels of coverage thanks to their buildable nature. And let’s not forget that they’re the ultimate travel beauty companion due to how compact they are. At this point you’re likely wondering where you can get in on these time-saving beauty products, so ahead you’ll find 11 standouts we swear by.
