Foundations are so cool, they conceal and cover our flaws and give a flawless look. These days, foundations are used on a daily basis rather than using on occasions since it is extremely important to look presentable all the time. Foundations come in many forms these days, liquid, solid, foam, stick foundations, and much more. Today I will be reviewing the newly launched nykaa skin genius foundation stick in the shade creamy bisque. The liquid foundation was a great hit among the people. Read on to know if this Nykaa Skingenius Foundation Stick met my expectations or not.

My experience with Nykaa Skingenius Foundation Stick

Nykaa Skingenius Foundation Stick 2

Packaging: it comes in a circular lipstick shaped container which can be rolled up to reveal the product since this is a stick foundation. I love the packaging and it is travel-friendly too.

Color and texture: the color is called Creamy Bisque. It will suit you if you are the lightest shade of pink undertone. It is a solid stick and can be applied to the skin and blended using fingers itself.

Fragrance: it has a pleasant minty smell and is the foundation-ish smell. Not too strong on the nose.


There are many international brands available on nykaa which we usually purchase. But nykaa recently launched their own line of makeup and girl, who expected it to be such a huge hit among people? The liquid foundation has been a great product, everyone is praise for this product since it blends so beautifully and stays really long. They also launched lipsticks, and stick foundations. I never owned a stick foundation, so I wanted to try this. I apply it on my face and blend using my fingers or beauty blender and voila, I am good to go. It blends so well and the best part is that it is cruelty-free. It can be built on to give more and more coverage and contains SPF also, which means it can be used during the day in that dreaded heat as well. It won’t melt off. It stays for a good 5 to 6 hours without feeling sticky or flaky. For people who have dry skin, first, apply a moisturizer and then use the stick. It does have moisture in it but for some dry skinned people, this won’t be enough. I was surprised when I saw the product since I expected it to be of much lesser quantity. I am actually very happy with this nykaa product and I might purchase their other products as well.
