Dear MAC Studio Stick, I really loved you. You were my favorite stick foundation ever. Black Opal and Becca were riding your coat tails, but just weren't good enough. You were perfect for every skin type, and it took a few hours for you to get oily. You were creamy enough to blend easily. You were pigmented enough to be light to full coverage. Now, I'll be checking all of my local Cosmetic Company Stores, hoping that I'll find a magical NC50. I'm going to miss you. If you want to try purchase, you'll have to go to Gone But Not Forgotten.
If you still own a stick, here's a step-by-step picture tutorial on how to use it. Also, I couldn't believe how much product was left after I reached (what I thought was) the bottom of the stick. Here's how to scrape out a few extra bucks worth of your stick foundation. From what I've heard from MAC insiders, there will not be another stick foundation coming out, at least through Fall 2010.
