I've used this product for years but apparently the formula has changed. What used to be a very smooth, blendable application to the face is now more like putting crayon on the skin. Several months ago I contacted Kryolan.com about this and was told that there were a couple of batches (I sent them the batch numbers I had) that were too waxy. The color I liked (OB1) was no longer available anyway, so I started shopping around for a comparable product - - there are some good ones out there, but nothing as great as TV Paint Foundation Stick. When FacePaint emailed me that OB1 was now available, I ordered it, thinking my problem was solved - and it was, sort of. The foundation is not AS waxy as the others I'd written Kryolan about, but still more difficult to blend. I'm still looking for a stick foundation that's comparable to the Paint Stick I'd been using for 4 or 5 years. That was a GREAT product! Whatever the formula problem is now - - -- they need to correct it.
