        Comments about Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation:

        I really like this foundation. Because its water based, I found that using a brush is the best way to blend it on the skin, because the fingers dont allow it to "break down" on the skin well, and a sponge soaks up too much of the product. It reminds me of the MUA water blend. light to medium coverage, pretty dewy finish so definitely needs a little setting. I love the applicator too, works very well and feels clean to use. I use this for a no-makeup look and for a night out at the same time. Looks VERY skin like and thats why I like it so much!

          I apply this product with a brush, and then top off with mineral powder. Without primer applied first it lasts about eight hours. With primer it looks just as good when I take it off ten to twelve hours later!!

          Comments about Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation:

          I received a sample of this with my order and I am happy I got a sample! This foundation was a pain in the rear to apply evenly and even after I felt it was even, the foundation would get splotchy in certain areas on my face. I applied the Stila primer that goes with this foundation and let it set before applying. I feel the coverage is actually pretty great, medium to full coverage at best. It doesn't fell heavy on my face but after fighting with it, it does look cakey to me. Lasts for a good full work day.

                  Comments about Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation:

                  I have trouble finding a good foundation because I have very dry skin that's prone to acne. I thought I would try this because it's supposed to be moisturizing, but it wasn't. It made my skin so greasy that the foundation would just come off. It also made the dry patches on my skin stand out. I will never use this again.
