      Comments about Stila Aqua Glow Perfecting Primer:

      This product is very disappointing. Usually Stila is a good company, but this let me down. As soon as I applied it, it didn't hold any foundation, made it difficult to apply, and caused the rest of my foundation to split up and become patchy. It's not worth the price. Never buy this. I will be returning this the first chance I get.

            Comments about Stila Aqua Glow Perfecting Primer:

            I ended up returning this. The first day I used it, it was one of the warmest days we had last week and my face was extra oily. I did think my makeup looked ok, but my pores were noticeable which is one of the things I want my primer to reduce. I tried it again on a cooler day and the oils were less, but I could see through my makeup in the cheek area where I apply my concealer to highlight. Too pricey for minimal effectiveness. I can also see this running out sooner due to the packaging although it is nice. It does feel cool on skin and blended well.

                  This product goes on super smooth, it feels silky and then feels like it fades to a soft powder. Hides pores, wrinkles and excellent base for make up. I use it for a natural smooth look alone.

                    I tried this instead of the one-step-correct to get more of a glowy look. I found it hard to tell if I had gotten "everywhere" on my face and it felt really filmy. I did like the cooling sensation and it did give me a glow, but I am paying for it in breakouts.

                      Love, love, LOVE this primer. It's lightweight and cooling, which is great for my dry skin that ends up like a grease pan by the end of the day. It keeps my skin feeling fresh all day. I have my fingers crossed that someday Stila will expand this primer into different versions - i.e. one that can tame my redness, but for now it works great.

                            Hi Tiffany,

                            Yes, this primer is fabulous for all skin types. If you are more oily, I think you will absolutely love it. The texture is totally weightless and fresh feeling on the skin, so there is no slippery silicone texture left behind. You will also love the skin-smoothing effect it has if you want to reduce the appearance of any skin texture or pores.

                          I use Stilas One Step helix primer. Would I be able to use this product in conjunction with that primer, and if so, in what order? Or is this meant to be used alone/take the place of any other primers used? Thanks for the help!

                            Although you can use them together, for best results, we'd suggest choosing one or the other, based on your primary concerns. If your primary concern is color-correction, choose One Step. If your primary concern is hydration, choose Aqua Boost. If using together, Aqua Boost works best applied first before One Step.

                            The "glow" that Aqua Glow provides is a hydrating, redness reducing effect thats lasts with or without foundation over top. If you are seeking a dewy finish with foundation, we recommend using in conjunction with either Stila Illuminating Powder Foundation or Stila Illuminating Liquid Foundation.
