Having used foundation liquid for a number of years, I was convinced into trying the stick as liquid is now discontinued. I'm so disappointed with it though. I loved the liquid, it applied perfectly and lasted all day. The stick does not go on well at all, I've tried using my fingers, sponges and a brush but it clings to my drier patches. It is also does not last the day and I find I'm having to reapply up by lunch time. Sad to say I won't be buying it again.
