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.

      Worst foundation I've ever used

        • Pricey / Poor Value
        • Too Greasy

        Best Uses

          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.

              Comments about Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation:

              Tried on with store tester and it seemed to slide on. Took product home, shook it a lot, but it was so difficult to spread and went on so stiff and yet faint facial spots showed right through. Very weird. Pores I usually don't see (normal-dry skin) became obvious and I found wrinkles I didn't even know I had. Tenaciously impervious to buffing. Tried applying /without primer, both with brush and with fingers. I know how the dispenser works but had to struggle to get dropper to dispense product which was thickish for a serum even after multiple sessions of extensive shaking. I see on you tube that others younger, even with combo/oily skin, complained of difficulty spreading the product. Perhaps there are vastly different production lots in circulation.

                  I was not very happy with this. Seems like it never dried/set. Slid all over the place and transferred into everything. It did cover well tho. I returned it cause it didn't sink into my skin, it just seemed to sit on top of it and slip and slid everywhere.

                      Wow, this stuff was extremely heavy and my face felt like it was covered in grease within an hour or two of application. This is on end of the only products I've ever returned, I wouldn't suggest this if tournament skin gets oily at all.
