Review – Olivia Professional Waterproof Makeup Stick In The Shade Rachelle

Hey guys! So, this is the product I was talking about in my Olivia Compact Powder Review post. I have been using this foundation or makeup stick on a daily basis and here is my review. It claims to be a perfect foundation and concealer combo product. Also claims to remain intact even when it comes in contact with water.  We’ll discuss these points and more! By the way, I have oily and acne-prone skin, which turns combination during winter. So now without further ado, let’s get into the details! (You can check out my Olivia Compact Powder Review after this.)

The packaging of Olivia Professional Waterproof Makeup Stick is sort of flimsy. It comes in a packaging similar to that of a lipstick bullet, yes in a roll-up mechanism. The stick is brown-purplish in color and has details mentioned on it like the shade name and code. My shade is 01 Rachelle. This makeup stick comes securely packed in a box which also contains a small note. However, I do not recollect the mention of ingredients anywhere but box read that it contains sunscreen.

By looking at the first swatch picture you can tell that it does not apply smoothly on the skin. In the second swatch picture, I have smudged it with the help of my fingertip. The cool thing is that you do not require a beauty sponge or a makeup brush to apply and blend this foundation in your skin. Since it blends much more effectively with the warmth of your fingertips. This is very convenient for all college and office goes, isn’t it?

It carries a fragrance which is neither mild nor strong, it did not bother my nose at all. It has a consistency and texture of a thick cream but blends very well with fingertips.

So, I have used this makeup stick on my facial and neck skin for more than 10 hours on a daily basis. And I can tell that it did not cause me any breakouts and neither did it clog my skin pores. The staying power is slightly above than average and it gives a medium coverage. It helps brighten and even out the skin perfectly and can work as an excellent day-to-day under eye concealer too! However, if you have under eye skin dryness or deep lines then the product does tend to make dry patches and lines look more prominent. So the use of a good moisturizer and primer is suggested.

This makeup stick takes a while to set into the skin to match your skin naturally. So while you are applying it might look that the look appears to be made up. But with time as it settles down, it looks natural which makes it perfect for daily usage. As per my experience, the time was 20 minutes. As far as the water stay claim goes, I can say that it does control sweat and oil to some extent. But I work in an air-conditioned environment so I can not conclude the same.

Final Verdict

I like it!

This makeup stick will suit best on normal, combination and oily skin type. Sensitive skin can use it as well as mine is sensitive and I did not face any breakouts. However, for dry skin, a good moisturizer is recommended as this product tends to cling to dry patches. The staying power is good, the coverage is medium and it is oil & sweat proof to some extent. Overall, I do not have any complaint at this price point.

    I can’t remember that last time I used a makeup stick. It’s great that you’re able to blend it perfectly. It matches your skin! You remind me of my friend Thrianne. I’d love to write about you too. ^^

  2. Nina says:

    I’m glad it hasn’t caused any breakouts. That’s very good! I think I would like to try something like this. It kind of reminds me of a primer in that it kind of sets your skin.

  3. Marjie Mare says:

    I have not used a makeup stick for a while as I work from home and don’t use as much makeup as I used too. This one is something that I could definitely give a try.

  4. GiGi Eats says:

    Interesting. I would be curious to see it on problem areas on your face. It’s hard to decide whether or not it is actually a game changer by sampling it on your arm.

  5. MELANIE EDJOURIAN says:

    It sounds like the packaging makes it easy to use without waste. Love that it has sunscreen that’s always a bonus for me.

  6. Stephanie says:

    I haven’t tried this makeup stick in particular, but have used others. They tended to leave me feeling more oily, so glad to finally see one that’s good for oily skin.

  7. Nicole Gilbert says:

    The swatch on your arm looks like there is a shimmer. Did you find that it glowed a little while it was on? Made you look oily?

  8. Ritu Sharma says:

    I have to say that I LOVE it when I buy it! This foundation blends easily and can be a light coverage for daytime and full coverage for night, depending on how much you use. I will certainly repurchase when it runs out.

  9. Amanda @ Healthy House on the Block says:

    Having a foundation that blends really easily is so important. It’s nice that it doesn’t require a sponge to do either. I’ve been searching for a lighter foundation, so maybe this is it!

  10. Karen Monica says:

    It has been sometime since I used a makeup stick. After reading your review, I want to try it out. I like something that blends well with my skin tone.

  11. Hooda says:

    I have oily skin and I think this should do the trick for me. Although, I don’t really use makeup on a daily basis, I also like to find good products that fit my skin. Thanks for this review.

  12. Kate Loves Travel says:

    I haven’t really tried a makeup stick – it looks interesting… I will have to check this brand out!

  13. David Elliott says:

    Yeah, my daughter and I can suffer from dry skin at times. I am sure she would need a moisturizer first before using the product.
