Overpriced

Comments about Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation:

I applied this foundation with a brush and true a little goes a long way but he coverage is terrible. I don't care for how it doesn't seem to settle into my skin. I heavily moisturize prior to application but it still looks terrible on my skin. The foundation is overpriced and doesn't offer the glowing full coverage it claims

    Comments about Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation:

    disappointed in this foundation. I was so excited because the lightest shade (fair) is my exact shade match and it is so hard to find a foundation that is pale/pink enough for my skin tone. I wanted to love this, but the formula did not work for me.It NEVER SETS. i repeat, this foundation does not set or dry. It will stay wet and transfer all day long, even after using setting powder. I know some people like that, and it is advertised as a water based product, but i don't know how anyone can stand touching their face and having their foundation come off. I don't have super oily skin, just a slightly oily t-zone, but this foundation completely creases and breaks up with any sign of oil.

        Very pleased

        By Jess

        from UT

        Comments about Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation:

        Over the last year my skin has changed (not for the better) and I have gone through so many foundations, creams, powders, just trying to find a good match for my skin type and concerns. I live in the desert and summer is beyond brutal for any type of makeup in general. I tried UD naked and all nighter, Smashbox 15 hour, Revlon color stay (whipped and liquid), you name it! I do have some combination skin but mostly dry and everything would cake, melt, over dry; even with a primer and setting spray. This foundation is great. It's very nice for my dry skin, not touch staying power in my opinion but it's easy to blend back in on my oil spots with a damp beauty blender or fingers when it starts to crack and separate (all makeup does this on me around my mouth and chin). It is very natural looking and very dewy. Overall I think I'll stick with this one unless something better comes along.
