High coverage. Natural finish. Longwear.
As a self-proclaimed foundation-phile, I had my eyes on the Traceless Foundation Stick for quite some time. I was immediately drawn in by the claims, primarily the versatile coverage, flawless finish, and natural appearance.
Having owned this foundation for a few months now, I can honestly say that it lives up to the claims! I find I need just 3 swipes (1 on each cheek and 1 across my forehead) for a true medium coverage with the Tom Ford Cream Foundation brush, which I can easily sheer out with a dampened beautyblender if desired. The finish truly is smooth and flawless and I find this wears better than most other cream foundations I have tried (8-10 hours)!
Having combination skin, I find this doesn't become too dewy on my oily t-zone and that it doesn't catch onto any dry patches around my jaw. If you're skin type is very oily, I think you could still make this foundation work, but you will need to prep and set appropriately.
Among my extensive foundation collection, I reach for the Traceless Foundation Stick for special events or occasions as it truly perfects my complexion without any heaviness in both feel or appearance. I also find the shade Natural a befitting match for my NC25 skin tone, or light-medium with a neutral/olive undertone.33 found this helpful.Maree E. Feb 02, 2017
I was worried at first this would be too heavy on the skin, but when I apply with a beautyblender, it goes on flawlessly. It gives a gorgeous air-brushed finish, and makes the skin look radiant without being too dewy. I find that it lasts all day without ever needing any touch-ups.12 found this helpful.Jenni L.

85 dollars for a foundation sounds crazy... until you try it. This is everything I always wanted out of a stick foundation. It has a lovely dewy finish, great coverage and most importantly- it looks like skin. It's quick and easy to apply- dot it on (little goes a long way) and blend. I like to use a buffing brush if I'm going for more coverage or my Beauty Blender if I want a more natural look. I will never use another stick foundation. This puts the others to shame. I appreciate that TF has a good shade selection and a great undertone selection. I'm a true neutral and it can be a challenge finding a shade that isn't too pink or yellow.8 found this helpful.Souhaila E. Apr 25, 2019
So Thrilled! It Exceeded my Great Expectations!
I have to start by saying I'd had this foundation on my wishlist for a while-and especially after trying different products from TF and hearing great things about the finish and formula I was excited to try it. This is actually the first stick foundation I have ever tried. I feel like foundation/complexion besides skincare and brushes of course is a great thing to invest in when you find a formula of exquisite quality that works for you. I am so glad I now have this in my rotation. Firstly, it is a really forgiving formula(you can really feel that your skin is revitalized from using it and you can tell that the formula is luxurious, antioxidant rich) The application is so easy-you only need light application out from the center of the face-it blends SO beautifully! I have several Wayne Goss foundation/complexion brushes to reach for, and I used a combination of my #1 foundation brush and my fan brush(the thicker one from the Synthetic set) after that I simply pressed it into the skin to warm it up a bit. I absolutely love the coverage. It is a very, very natural semi-matte-and it really melds with the skin. It gives me gorgeous coverage and does not emphasize my pores/texture or any fine lines. It is very smoothing which I absolutely love. It really gives you a flawless finish that looks like beautiful skin. It's actually radiant without being thick or heavy in any way. I used it with the TF Illuminating Primer -fabulous!7 found this helpful.Rebecca R. Jan 07, 2018
Natural (looks good on skin) great for normal to dry skin types.
I think this is a natural beautiful foundation and my pores looked softened, but it really didn't give me the coverage I was hoping for. So I had to send it back. If your looking for something quick and natural and feels great and moisturizing on the skin and you have great skin and don't need alot of coverage then this is for you. You can build coverage with this foundation but that's alot of product and money, in the end it's what your looking for and how much you want to spend.7 found this helpful.Matty Z. Aug 01, 2018
This is by far my favorite foundation I have ever used. My favorite previousoy was Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk and I find this foundation to be even more weightless and more flawless than that. I use a Beauty Blender for application and this foundation makes my skin perfect and glowy. Is it worth $87 - YES!6 found this helpful.Vicki C. Oct 05, 2017
I picked up this foundation in Natural last week for a wedding. I'd heard so much about how beautiful and natural it looks on the skin and after lusting after it for a full year I figured it was time. I was not prepared to fall completely in love with it. After application I kept looking at my skin trying to figure out where the foundation had gone to. My skin looked flawless but I couldn't see the foundation what so ever. It was amazing! Life changing! Yes it's expensive but trust me when I say it's breathtakingly gorgeous on the skin. I loved it so much I picked up the color Bisque too which had I find suits my NC 30 completion a bit better right now. I can get away with Natural no problem but as of right now I like using it a bit like a highlighter along with Bisque.3 found this helpful.jenn K. 4 weeks ago
BEST BEST BEST
Best foundation I've ever used. It melts so seamlessly into your skin that its basically sorcery and witchcraft. It hurts having to buy a foundation that is so damn expensive, but boy is it worth it!
Thank God for flex pay and sales.
Aside from the outrageous price, My only two tiny gripes:
1) No matter how careful I am about rolling the foundation down, somehow it always gets a smudge of foundation on the inner top of the lid. (Stupid nitpicky gripe, but I digress)
2) In my experience, the shade range in this particular line seems to run VERY VERY LIGHT. Im usually somewhere on the lightest spectrum in other brands. Unfortunately, due to the covid restrictions requesting samples has been impossible.
The quest to find the correct number that I need using online guessing games and research has been a real royal PIA.
Lots of purchasing and exchanging thru the mail. Theres a ton of options and range here, which is kind of a double-edged sword when you're trying them on blind online.
I have to buy two-so double ouch! 1 for summer/tanning and one for lighter winter mos.
I've tried .5, 2.0 and even 3.5 and they make me look like a ghost which is crazy, bc again I'm normally pretty pale.
So lest yee be warned! opt to go for the darker option, if you're on the fence between which shades to pick. Its pretty forgiving.
I can get away with using 3.5 during summer with a lot of bronzer
Now with that being said, the natural finish, the texture and coverage is so perfect, it is testament to my determination in finding the perfect winter and summer shades in this foundation damnit!
The twisty top packaging is portable, and decent in quality and durability.
