W3LL PEOPLE Narcissist Foundation Stick

If we were reborn as morning people, maybe we’d get up early enough to meditate, whip up a green smoothie, and have time left over to apply our makeup. Unfortunately, we love our snooze button even more than our healthy-living fantasies. Thanks to this creamy foundation stick, it’s easy to get an even-toned, glowing complexion in a hurry. The all-natural formula is full of skin-loving ingredients, and the retractable tube ensures mess-free application. For us, that’s about as Zen as it gets.

Should have bought this a long time ago!

I'll admit I was very skeptical about this foundation. It looked like the consistency was a bit hard when I watched people apply it, and I didn't see how it could be both a concealer and foundation in one. I finally took the plunge and bought this and I am SO glad I did. First of all, I debated for days which color I should get. I'm light skinned with pink undertones but live in Texas, so even though I am religious about SPF, I do get a little darker in the summer. I decided to go with #2 because I knew I could return it if I absolutely had to, and to my surprise, it's the most perfect matching foundation I've ever used in my entire life. That alone was amazing enough, so I couldn't wait to apply it. I'm normally not a big fan of using my hands to apply foundation, but I knew it would work best with the consistency of this foundation. It is a tad bit tougher than liquid foundations since its in stick form, but once you apply it and start rubbing and/or tapping it in with your fingers, it basically melts into your skin and just looks and feels amazing. It not only feels wonderful, but also looks SO natural! It is definitely blendable, but it is not cakey looking at all. I didn't even look like I had face make up on! After applying the foundation, I just rubbed a little on my finger to use as concealer, and wouldn't you know it works amazing for that as well. This is also the only foundation I've ever used where I felt like I didn't need to apply it over my entire face, only the places that need it. I've been impressed by a ton of products that I've discovered through Birchbox, but this has got to be the best one yet. If you're even thinking about getting this foundation, just go for it! I wish I would have bought it a long time ago.

The Best (for no make up make up) and sensitive skin

I love the BB carries well people, because the flagship store is in my town, buuuuut i don't get points for shopping there. So i've been using the narcissist stick foundation for longer than it's been in the bb shop.

I've noticed that some people describe it as cakey and flakey. So i just wanted to preface this 5 star review with 2 things : 1) I apply the stick directly after moisturizer (like when my face is still dewy). 2) I do not wear foundation all over my face. I wear it on my nose, under my eyes, on my chin, and upper lip. Then I smooth out from there. I have never noticed it being flakey or cakey. I have SUPER fair neutral skin so I wear 0&2 in color, and then mix them if i need too (between winter and summer i flux between those two "extremes"). It travels well, its easy to swipe on. It holds all day. It matches and looks great. Plus it's all natural so my SUPER sensitive skin doesn't break out because of it.

Love love love!

I love the way it goes on you can increase coverage by applying more bit since I like to have a natural look a little for me is good. Makes my complexion more even and looks like I have a glow! Not drying at all and not greasy. Love love love that it's good for my face because it's all natural organic! I think It last long too. I am a light medium with yellow undertone and tan easily in sun. They had recommended #4 for me but it was too pink and a little too pale so I returned it for a #5 and perfect! Don't worry if it doesn't match you, birchbox customer service is so good you just return it they give you a refund and you can order another color!! :))

my favorite

My skin goes from dry/normal in the winter to combination in the summer, and this is great all year-round. I have some scarring from my past of cystic acne and I layer this to cover up the darker spots. I wear this with the altruist foundation powder on top and the two of them together stay in place all day.

It's a very dense product. I prefer a more sheer, light product and this was too heavy for me. I have very large pores and this product made them even bigger. I can use it for spot treatments when a part of my face is too red if I just put a little on my finger and it works ok.

Great as concealer and light coverage

I don't use this stick for full foundation, but I use it as concealer for under my eyes and to cover minor redness around my nose. It works great and is super quick to apply. It isn't drying and lasts all day.

Really nice

I liked this very much, good coverage but natural. I use it with a beauty blender. I had been using the W3LL people concealer, and decided to try this as well. Good brand nice products.

Pretty good foundation

I'm giving this product four stars. I love that it is natural and has skin perfecting ingredients, the color is also right for me. The down side is that it makes my oily/dry skin look flaky in the spots where my skin is very dry. Other than that it is a pretty good foundation stick.

I had high hopes for this with the other reviews. I was disappointed. The foundation stick is really dry and drying, too hard, and doesn't blend well at all, would never recommend. Also the color was somewhat unnatural looking. To say I hated it would be an understatement. I don't understand the good reviews.

Love it! But makes my skin oily

Really good foundation, makes my skin looks flawless! But it makes my skin super oily to where I have to dab my face with a tissue frequently, and I don't usually have oily skin problems (my skin is very sensitive to dryness usually).. I'm reluctantly going to look for a different foundation, but this is a really good foundation
