New from PÜR Cosmetics, the 4-in-1 Foundation Stick is a velvet matte finish foundation that promises medium-to-full coverage plus skincare benefits for a flawless complexion.
Formulated with good-for-your skin ingredients such as Ceretin Complex, green tea and vitamin B, this stick foundation has been designed to brighten uneven skin tone and conceal imperfections with stay-true coverage that looks natural.
It comes in an extensive range of 24 shades for fair to deep skin with options for warm, cool, and neutral undertones.
When it comes to stick foundations, I haven’t had a lot of great experiences in the past. As much as I love the convenience and portability aspect, finding a stick foundation that’s lightweight with a natural-looking finish and doesn’t cling to dry spots has been a challenge.
So, I admit I was a little wary of trying this newbie stick foundation from PUR Cosmetics. But I am happy to report that I was left pleasantly surprised!
Like most stick foundations, PUR Cosmetics 4-in-1 Foundation Stick comes in a swivel-up tube. The texture is smooth and creamy enough (though not greasy) that it applies and blends easily over moisturized and primed skin.
Whether blended with fingers, or a sponge or brush, the formula is easy to work with. I should mention that using fingers didn’t leave as nice a finish as a brush or BeautyBlender did.
True to its claim, the PUR Cosmetics 4-in-1 Foundation Stick offers great medium coverage that’s easily buildable on areas where you need a little more help. Layering doesn’t make it look heavy or cakey, and it still feels comfortably lightweight without suffocating pores.
The coverage is pretty good so I can easily get away without having to use a concealer. I just layer on a little more foundation on my problem areas, and I’m good to go!
I like the velvety matte finish that looks natural and doesn’t crust around flaky patches on my face. As someone with dry skin, this is definitely a big plus for me!
As far as wear time, this foundation stays put remarkably well throughout the day without fading, even in this hot and humid weather. With my drier skin, I don’t feel the need to set it with a powder.
Not to mention, PUR Cosmetics 4-in-1 Foundation Stick is a keeper even for oily skin gals (like my friend Rachel who has also been testing out this foundation for the last few weeks). Her verdict is also positive like mine!
She found that this stick foundation is long-lasting even on her oily to very oily skin and stays put for the majority of the day (without feeling heavy or greasy). What she likes best about this foundation is its natural matte finish that keeps her skin shine-free for several hours, when paired with a mattifying primer. And the fact that she can skip the concealer because of the great buildable coverage is a bonus!
Here are the swatches of all the shades from PUR Cosmetics:
Overall, PUR Cosmetics 4-in-1 Foundation Stick is well worth checking out. It’s easy to blend on skin, isn’t drying and offers buildable medium-to-full coverage that lasts all day long. Being a stick, it’s incredibly convenient and handy for touch-ups on the go, and even doubles up as a concealer.
If you have been looking for a long-wearing stick foundation with a natural matte finish and great coverage, you should definitely give this one a try!
