The newest addition to the Avon foundation lineup is a stick. Yes you read that right, a stick. If your like me, you might be thinking, what?
The description from the web site reads “Poof! Cover + perfect + blur with the simple wave of our Magix Wand. The long-wearing, multi-use foundation stick—and a few sleight-of-hand tricks—deliver complexion perfection”
As usual I was skeptical, but once I got used to using it, I was pleasantly surprised. So you might be thinking what’s the secret? The Magix Wand Foundation Stick is a high-pigment, light-as-air formula that creates a smooth canvas. It actually perfects tone and blurs flaws leaving a soft demi-matte finish.
The Magix Wand has the ability to go from a full-face coverage to on-the-go touchups. It’s a purse-friendly foundation stick lets you easily conceal, highlight and contour.
The best recommendations I have for use is to apply directly ( from the stick) on to clean, moisturized skin. The key here is to apply shortly after your moisturizer. I usually give about 3-5 minutes after my moisturizer to allow time for my moisturizer to properly absorb.
I use 3 different sticks, one color as a base color. This is a shade that “disappears” on my face when blended in. Meaning that it is essentially invisible. I use a stick that is two shades darker as a contour under my cheek bones, and temple areas. I use a stick two shades lighter as a highlighter on my upper cheeks, tip of my nose, and upper lip area. I also use a light shade as a concealer under my eyes.
Although I usually blend my foundation with my fingertips, I’ve found that the Magix Stick blends much better with a sponge.
I find that it actually smooths and evens my skins texture, and blurs the look of pores and wrinkles. This might be due to the shea butter and vitamin E that helps moisturize dry skin and provides antioxidant protection. The best part that I like about the Magic Wand Foundation Stick is probably the fact that it blends almost effortlessly and leaves a silky, matte finish.
When ordering, I recommend you find the color that best matches your skin tone, and also order a stick two shades lighter, and two shades darker. Not only will you probably find your best shade, but you will also have colors to use as contour and highlighter.
