The makeup stick was a good match for my skin tone. However, it settles into my pores and no matter what I tried, I can't get it to blend out well. I've tried using my fingers, a non-latex makeup sponge, and a brush. The brush worked the best but it's still not that great. I'm disappointed, as I really tried to make it work. Interestingly enough, the Real Deal Foundation Stick was rated 8.5 by beauty editors on Total Beauty's review of the 12 best foundations. However, they did note in their review that it wasn't the easiest foundation to work with.
The blush is such a pretty color, but I also had the problem of it settling into pores. Applying with a brush helped and I think I'll be able to use this provided I do careful blending.
The concealer is highly pigmented, and a tiny bit goes a long way. I tried it under my eyes and it settled into creases, but almost everything I've tried under my eyes does that. It's a bit too dark for an under eye concealer anyhow, so I'll use it for blemishes and other discolorations.
