MY EXPERIENCE:
  So when I went to Bangalore Beauty Expo, there I visited this Olivia store and came to know they have makeup line even apart from skincare products. I was curious to try some and the brand was kind enough to send across some samples for me to try and review for my lovely readers. It is important as I know been in college it was hard to spend a lot. So such pocket friendly products comes to the rescue. One such pocket friendly I will be reviewing today.

PACKAGING:
  Olivia Instant Waterproof Make - Up Stick With SPF12 comes in plastic twist up rose-gold coloured stick packaging, which comes in a similar coloured cardboard box bearing all the details in gold fonts. The ingredients list is not mentioned anywhere on the packaging. I wished they have mentioned that as these days I do look for that in particular. A leaflet is also enclosed in it. At this price the packaging is good.

01 RACHELLE: It is pinkish tone shade perfect for very fair and fair skin beauties who have cool undertones.

03 NATURAL: It is beige in colour which matches medium skin tones having yellow undertones.

10 BURNISH AMBER: A dark pinkish brown shade perfect for dark coloured beauties having cool undertones. It can used as blush too if used minimally or for contouring.

  The consistency is quite creamy and stick like and does have a artificial makeup product smell to it, which might be bothersome to sensitive noses as it stick around for 1 hour or so after application.

RESULTS:
  Olivia Instant Waterproof Make - Up Stick With SPF12 glides easily when applied and it does blends easily and gives shine proof effect on the skin. Firstly I suggest you to check the shades properly as both the time I have got wrong shade for me. I wanted Burnish Amber for contouring,  but I can't use it that way. So I will be using it as a blush now. But at that such affordable price I don't complain much.

  It claims to be a 3 in 1 product which acts as foundation, perfect base and concealer. I have used it as foundation and it did blends easily and provided a shine free look and did have light to medium coverage. If more product is build up it might tend to crease, So I haven't used it as concealer as it doesn't hide dark circles much and tend to crease. It does hide small spots and blemishes. It does remains intact under water and is waterproof and sweatproof to an extent. Good thing is it does have SPF12 in it. It does lasts for 3 to 4 hours later on can be fixed by touchups.

PROS:

  1. Affordable and travel friendly.
  2. Comes in 12 shade range covering all skintones.
  3. Glides smoothly and provides light to medium coverage.
  4. Can be used as foundation or base.
  5. Remains intact under water.
  6. Have SPF12.

  4. Doesn't work much as concealer.

Olivia Instant Waterproof Makeup Stick
Swatches (Top - Bottom: Burnish Amber, Natural and Rachelle.)

IBN RATING: 3.7/5.

MY FINAL THOUGHTS:
  Olivia Instant Waterproof Makeup Stick With SPF12 is the most budget friendly makeup stick in the market which can be used as a base or foundation, does have a artificial makeup fragrance to it, which glides easily and gives light to medium coverage.

IBN RECOMMENDATION:
  If your look for the base or foundation which doesn't burn hole in your pocket, then this is for you.
