NYX Wonder StickRating: 3.5 out of 5
So I have been using these for the past month and have seen all the negative reviews re its use - too oily, doesn't spread well, colour too pale and mostly I agree but there is a really neat way to use this stick to speed up your morning routine.
1. Use a base foundation (ideally a compact) first to even out your face texture
2. Apply the stick as per instructions (I used light/medium) but you can go for a darker tone if you have lighter skin (yes - that shows the contouring contrast better on top of your foundation)
3. Now to remove the "oily" feel of the stick dab your face with transparent matte face powder (I recommend Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder Transparent 1 or even a light shade of Mac's Studio Fix). The matte powder will remove the "oily" feel without affecting your contouring
That's it! Its a really good quick fix for morning routines but I would still using liquid foundation for contouring in general as that gives the best "air brush" finish!
