Reviewers say they love the convenience of Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick because it easily slips into their purse for on-the-go-touchups. It can also double as a concealer. It has a creamy texture that provides medium to full coverage. Users say that the 20 available shades look natural and match skin perfectly. Paula Begoun warns, however, that those with acne should steer clear of the stick foundation because it can clog pores. She says this formula is best for normal to dry skin. If you prefer a liquid formula, L'Oreal Paris True Match Super Blendable Makeup SPF 17 (*Est. $9) is an affordable option.
