NARS' FIRST FOUNDATION STICK

French company Nars Cosmetics has created its first foundation stick.

The Velvet Matte Foundation Stick is a convenient and fuss-free stick foundation that is especially handy for on-the-go correction.

The stick is available in 20 shades from light beige with pink and yellow undertones to dark brown with espresso undertones. It also comes with a removable touch-up blender.

The smooth foundation is easily applied and blended on the skin and creates a soft-matte finish. The label says the formula does not dry, streak or look cakey.

It costs $70 and is available at Nars counters.
