Hi My Lovely Readers,
Today I will be sharing my reviews on a Makeup Stick Foundation from a brand called Olivia which is quite lesser known in the market but its infact the most oldest brand in India which actually came up with skincare and makeup range.
About the Brand:
Olivia Health Care started its operations in the year 1978.Olivia gets its name and inspiration from the ever so fascinating fruit Olive.. They have wide range of products in skin care, hair care and makeup which are made up of natural ingredients and also the products are budget friendly.
Olivia Instant Waterproof MakeUp Stick comes in plastic maroon coloured stick packaging. It has a twist up/ scrolling mechanism to get the product out and to close it. The packaging is quite sturdy and compact so you can carry it anywhere.
The texture of the makeup stick is quite creamy and glides smoothly on skin. Its easily blendable and buildable .You can go from a light to a full coverage depending on your usage. But I prefer not to layer it up much as it gives a cakey finish. It has that typical makeup fragrance which you find in most of the cosmetics.
PRICE: Rs. 120 for 15gm
I am always in search of good budget friendly makeup. So recently I came across this foundation or makeup stick and wanted to give it a try. The product comes in a stick form which makes it quite convenient to apply on face.Its very creamy so it was easy to blend onto my skin.Just take a little product and your good to go for everyday use. If you want high coverage then you need to apply 2-3 layers . If you dont blend this product quickly and nicely, you will end up with a cakey look.
The product gives a semi matte look which is good for oily skin. It stays upto 3-4 hours which is quite good for the price being paid. Initially I was bit apprehensive and doubtful towards it as it was a new brand for me but I must say , it really did surprise me.The added advantage with this product is that, it comes with SPF 12 and it also claims to be waterproof and sweatproof which I felt its atmost true.
It comes in 11 different shades which is quite to suit Indian skin tone. Heres a tip:Those who are looking for contouring and highlighting product, can choose a dark and light shade stick from this range and use it . It claims to be 3 in 1 product i.e foundation, concealer and a base. I use it as a foundation and as base to my eyes. It cannot be used as a concealer as layering of the product tends to crease. But it does evens out you skin and covers slight blemishes and spots.
- Affordable and travel friendly.
- Glides on smoothly over skin.
- Gives a light to medium coverage
- Comes in 11 different shades to choose from
- Easily Blendable
- Waterproof and Sweatproof
- Contains SPF12
- Low staying power
- Ingredients list not mentioned.
- Doesn’t work much as concealer.
- Tends to crease when it is build.
- Not easily available.
Overall I like this product for everyday use and also those who are looking for budget friendly makeup stick or foundation then its a good option that fits your pocket especially house wives or college girls. I feel its a good replacement for a bb cream.
