Over four years ago, I formed an inseperable bond with one foundation. I've gone through enough bottles to declare it a holy grail of mine and never felt compelled to try another formula. Even today, given my role as a shopping writer who constantly tests products, no others have been able to rival it — that is, until now.
Huda Beauty's Faux Filter Skin Finish Foundation Stick has officially replaced my go-to foundation. It makes my problematic complexion instantly look flawless, and any large pores or uneven texture are suddenly indistinguishable — something no other foundation has been able to accomplish. The second-skin finish is anything but cakey, even when I build up layers for additional coverage. After hours of wear, it looks just as intact as when first applied.
Whether you're a beginner, a makeup connoisseur, or somewhere in between, the creamy stick foundation offers no-fuss, foolproof applications. A beauty sponge, a brush, or your fingers are all capable of blending it seamlessly into the skin and can take it from natural to full coverage in a matter of seconds. For those who have sensitive skin like myself, rest assured the formula is non-comedogenic and fragrance-free. Not to mention, it's waterproof, humidity-proof, and sweat-resistant.

Despite only arriving on the beauty scene this past fall, the Faux Filter Skin Finish Foundation Stick has already garnered plenty of praise from shoppers. One reviewer claims it works like "magic" on transforming their skin, while another said it will "change the way you see other foundations."
"The formula and texture is SO buttery and smooth and wears super well," wrote one reviewer. "Love the colour range — loads of choice and undertones. Surprisingly it covers imperfections easily without that heavy feel. It's my go-to day-to-day foundation."
"Phenomenal. I've used everything from Chanel to Elf, and this by far is one of the best," said another. "This feels so lightweight on the face that I hope they never stop selling it."
