If you’re looking for an affordable foundation, Avon has you covered.
I’m usually not too keen on stick foundation as I prefer something I can apply to a brush and then blend, but sticks are great for travel as well as contouring your face (if you get a deeper shade). Brand new from Avon is their Magix Wand Foundation Stick, which is a cream foundation that allows you to conceal, highlight, and contour your face for flawless skin.
This foundation, available in 16 shades, is a multi-use makeup stick that gives buildable sheer-to-full coverage, leaving you with a flawless complexion that blurs the look of wrinkles and pores. The finish of this foundation is demi-matte, which means no oil or shine. The formula contains shea butter and Vitamin E to moisturize and provide antioxidant protection. It applies as a cream-to-powder formula and the best part is, depending on the shade you choose, you can use it as a foundation, a highlight, or a contour.
Avon sent me three shades to play around with and I was actually quite impressed with the coverage. This foundation stick is quite small, making it compact for your purse (on-the-go touch ups) and for travel. I like to just apply this directly to the face and then use a buffer brush to blend it all out. The wear is very lightweight and i didn’t find it to crease or cake up after a few hours.
If you are interested in this foundation, it’s currently on sale for C$12.99 instead of $15. The formula is also vegan if you are into clean beauty.
The brand has also released their Magix Prime Face Protector SPF 20 Sunscreen to go with the foundation as a primer. This product is a colourless gel-to-powder formula that can be used as a primer under foundation or by itself to smooth and blur the look of fine lines and pores. This also gives you matte skin for up to seven hours and has an SPF 20 in it to protect your skin against sun damage.
This also retails for C$12.99 (regular price is $15!) and is suitable for all skin types. If you are picking up the foundation, I would recommend looking into this as well.
