I recently picked up the Wander Beauty Flash Focus Foundation Stick to add to my foundation Friday video series on YouTube. I had been wanting to try the Wander Beauty Flash Focus Foundation Stick for a while but had read and watched some really mixed reviews on this foundation. Because I was still on the fence, I wanted to give it a try and see how it worked for me. In this post, I share my thoughts on the foundation, show how I applied it, and how it wore throughout the day.
Claims: “The Flash Focus Hydrating Foundation Stick glides easily onto the skin for a flawless, smooth finish. Perfect for all skin types, the buildable, lightweight formula calms redness and reduces discoloration. Portable and precise, it is easy to apply on-the-go. Versatile enough to deliver sheer, medium or full coverage that looks natural, this creamy formula can be used for spot treating imperfections or all-over coverage from day to night. Its unique complex of coconut oil, hyaluronic, and vitamins C and E deeply hydrate your skin, locking in moisture and leave a youthful-looking, perfect complexion.”

The Verdict: The Wander Beauty Flash Focus Foundation Stick is, sadly, one that I will be returning. It felt really nice on my skin and early in the day it offered very nice coverage. My skin looked even and glowing. I had really high hopes for this cruelty-free foundation stick in the first half of my day. Sadly, after that things went downhill. Watching this, I feel like the foundation looked a lot nicer on camera than it did off camera. Off camera, there was barely any coverage. When I went to remove my makeup at the end of the day, it showed that hardly any was left on my face.
I think that this foundation could work for you if you have very dry skin and are looking for a cruelty-free foundation and offers medium coverage. The formula was really hydrating and it did feel very nice on my skin. In fact, I would say that my skin felt more hydrated at the end of the day than in the morning. However, that’s not enough for me to love the foundation and I don’t feel that it was a good fit for me.
