When it comes to face makeup, there are few products I cherish more than a multipurpose stick. So when Live Tinted's Huestick in the new bronze shade "Grounded" showed up on my doorstep, I immediately had to give it a go — even despite the fact that I've barely been wearing makeup at all these days. I just couldn't not try it in all of its golden-tubed glory.

I'm sure as hell glad I did, too, because the Allure-approved multistick has quickly become one of my favorite cream bronzers — ever. And I don't drop the word "favorite" lightly, folks. This bronzing stick simply checks all the boxes: It's easy to use, blends seamlessly into the skin, and it looks undetectable once it's dried down.

Plus, the chocolate-brown shade is perfect — it's neither too orange, nor too gray or muddy. Additionally, from the looks of the brand's website, it seems to suit a variety of skin tones, including deeper complexions. On me, it adds significant warmth to my skin, without making it look like I got a faulty spray tan.

This is where I typically apply the bronzer. I like to add some to the bridge of my nose because that's where I naturally get color from the sun.

In terms of how I apply the stuff, it couldn't be more straightforward: I literally just draw on my face as if I were using a marker or crayon, adding it wherever the sun naturally kisses my skin, so the tops of my cheeks, the bridge of my nose, and my temples. I also like to apply some to my eyelids to tie it all together. Then I use a beauty sponge to blend everything out, and bam, that's it.

Another bonus? It's vegan and spiked with skin-loving ingredients like vitamins C and E, squalane, and hyaluronic acid, all of which help to nourish and hydrate the skin. And while I can't say I've seen any noticeable difference in my skin's appearance, it still just feels nice knowing the good-for-you ingredients are in there. Can anyone else relate?

Now, I won't act like I've been wearing this bronzer every single day since I got it — but when I do feel like doing a little somethin-somethin to my face, it's one of the first and only products I reach for, which says a lot considering how little makeup I've been wearing lately.
