I wouldn't waste your time on the sticks.
I used them when I first came in the Military about 14 years ago and over time came to appreciate the compacts much better.
Not just for a better variety in shades but ease of application and removal.
The sticks worked, don't get me wrong but don't waste your money just because they were once issue items(remember when the chips are down and your life is at stake, the equipment you were issued was made by the lowest bidder). That is why most people I served and still serve with usually purchase their own items.
Anyway, I digress. Go with the sticks if you will, but IMHO they are no better and in some ways worse than the compacts.....'nuff said.
