Why We're Feelin' It

(wearing Suede + Espresso)

The Matte Skinsticks are perfect for on the go touch-ups and easy contour/concealer. The formula makes it easy enough to blend out with your fingers or beauty sponge, however, since it is a cream to powder product, some might find it too drying. I love to layer Suede(used in the photo above) atop of some of my creamier concealers. I have also had success using Truffle as a foundation for my light makeup days. The formula is great for combo/oily skin. I wish they came out with a few more deeper shades, though. It seems like a large jump from Cocoa to Espresso and there isn't anything darker than Espresso to contour with.
