This bareMinerals water-based, liquid-foundation-in-a-stick combines hydrating skin-care benefits and SPF with radiant, medium coverage.

Complexion Rescue Hydrating Foundation Stick Broad Spectrum SPF 25 combines the hydration of a tinted moisturizer with medium, buildable coverage in a convenient on-the-go format. Its easy-to-blend texture melts into skin for all-day wear that's lightweight, never cakey. Use the multitasking formula as foundation, concealer, for touch-ups, or to contour.

How do I use it: Apply directly onto your face, starting in the center, from your forehead, down your nose, and chin. Apply one swipe along your cheekbones and under your eyes. Swipe two to three times in an area for more coverage.

For sheer to medium coverage, use your fingers to blend from the center outward.

For medium coverage, use a Smoothing Face Brush (not included) to gently buff foundation into skin in small circular motions, starting at the center and blending outward.

For buildable coverage, use a bareMinerals dual-sided silicone blender (not included), which was made specifically for Complexion Rescue Hydrating Foundation Stick Broad Spectrum SPF 25. Use the silicone side to stipple and build coverage and the sponge side to smooth, for a soft-focus finish.

To conceal and touch up, swirl your ring finger on top to warm up the product, then gently pat onto areas that need more coverage, such as dark circles, blemishes, or discoloration. Keep patting to blend, as needed.

To contour, select a shade two to three intensities darker than your skin tone, depending on the level of contrast you want. Apply directly on the hollows of your face--below your cheekbones, the sides of your forehead and temples, along your jawline, the sides of your nose, and below your bottom lip.

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Stick Foundation is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 85.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally!!! I love the idea of a stick foundation. I have tried the Tarte Clay Stick foundation (with the brush) - liked the coverage but found it streaky. Not with this BareMinerals! Creamy and goes on smoothly without streaking or settling in any creases. Easy to use, no mess, muss, or fuss. Just a couple of swipes on your face and blend with your finger tips. Buildable for more coverage if you would want. So glad to have it on auto-delivery.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Oh so heavy I have tried this about 8 different times and it still does the same thing. Very very very heavy on the face and does not blend well at all. Was hoping this would give me that moist and dewy skin and well it sure does not...Have tried many of the makeups for the dewy skin and they have all gone back just as this one will...I guess I will stay with the Bare Minerals powder...UGH

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice foundation I liked this foundation once I figured out the shade I needed. I'm fair, with yellow undertones. First I tried the Vanilla and it was too dark and orange on me. Tried the Birch and it was a good match. Light, but good coverage and doesn't settle in lines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this foundation!! This product took so long to be available and sent out, I was ready to cancel my order! So glad I didn't, I'm patting myself on the back!! I love this foundation! I ordered the Opal as I'm fair. The color is perfect, goes on so smooth, and looks great! I'm 69, so, of course, have some wrinkles. It didn't settle into my wrinkles, maybe because I didn't apply it that thick. Just wanted normal coverage. I'm planning on ordering the vanilla and maybe the birch for the summertime. Again, so glad I didn't cancel my order. I love this foundation!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Foundation I have been using this for several weeks and love it. The light to medium coverage is all I need. I will not wear a foundation without SPF so I am happy I am getting the protection I need. The brand of stick foundation I previously used did not contain any SPF. This is a winner all around.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's Okay I have been using this product for a few weeks now and its okay. The color doesn't match exactly to the other complexion rescue and if I miss a spot of blending, I can feel it on my face. Also, it takes longer to apply. It is not a bad product so I can't say if I recommend or do not recommend the product. What I can say is that I prefer the original complexion rescue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Give it a chance - you'll be glad you did! This product is excellent! I was using bM Complexion Rescue Tinted Gel Cream for a while but I was looking to reduce my time spent on putting on makeup so I decided to give this a try. First, the color match is perfect! i chose the same shade I was using in the Gel Cream (Chestnut 9) and it's spot on. What took a while was figuring out the best application method for me. I watched a QVC video whose simple demo was to draw stripes and blend with your fingertips. This method didn't provide the coverage I was looking for. For my next try I applied more product and used a foundation brush with a flat circle surface and the result was amazing. No wasted dry down time as with the Gel Cream. I use a large powder brush to top it off with bM Bareskin Perfecting Veil in Dark to Deep and the result is Flawless! P.S. I just read the How to Use section and it provides detailed application methods including the one I came up with. Talking about burying the lede -- finding the right application method is EVERYTHING! It was MY key to foundation happiness!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great and easy product to use. This stick is so easy to use and spreads easily. I usually use the Bareminerals gel complextion foundation, which is also awesome. I would bring this stick on trips as it's easy to use and compact to pack. I can use either my fingers or a sponge to spread the foundation. Yes, this is an awesome product and glad I bought it. I use the same color as my gel complextion foundation. AWESOME!!!!!
