Rants

My biggest rant is seemingly the limited color range: The line only features five shades: Sultry-Sand (light), Timeless Tawny (med-light), Alluring-Almond (med), Heavenly Hazel (brown) or Bangin’ Bronze (rich brown). There’s a good chance that you will fit into one of these five shades, but there’s also a chance that you will not. On the flipside, when you look at most brands, take Maybelline, for example, their shades for women of color only span 4-6 shades. So maybe it’s not a bad idea after all. Nevertheless, I wish there were three or four additional shades.

 

Raves

We can definitely rave about the formula. It is ultra creamy, smooth and applies like a dream. I have not encountered a foundation stick with such a smooth formula in a long time. It’s like butter. If you are looking for heavy coverage, this is your foundation. While this foundation provides heavy coverage, it is seemingly weightless and does not feel heavy on the skin. The finish of the foundation is dewy, which I love. I did test and use Alluring Almond. In Mississippi heat with a primer, this foundation lasted about 10 hours before it started to crease around the eye area.

We can also rave about the bronzers. Kudos to the developer that created a bronzer that compliments the each foundation shade. It really eliminates the guesswork in finding a bronzer that suits you best. Of all the bronzers, the one included with Banging Bronze was gorgeous. I can see a dark skinned woman applying this and having such an ethereal glow.

I can also rave about the price. $23 for a foundation/bronzer combo is really nice. Find these sticks on mixedchicks.com right now.
