Good for dry skin but doesn't say on all day

By Nicole

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Blends Well
  • Goes On Smoothly

Cons

  • Doesn't Stay On

Best Uses

  • Dry Skin
  • Light To Medium Coverage

Comments about Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation:

I gave it 4 stars because it doesn't last all day. I would have hoped for the price it would of lasted on my skin longer throughout the day. I do have dry skin though and it doesn't cake around my dry patches. I do use a moisturizer before the foundation. Overall I am happy with the purchase.

      Comments about Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation:

      I have been on the hunt for YEARS for a foundation that will match to my unique skin tone (very fair, olive) and ladies and gentlemen, I've found it. I buy the shade "fair light" and it is perfect. A match made in heaven. It has light to medium coverage and is the foundation that actually looks like skin (not a leather purse) while giving you a dewey glow. It blends well with concealers and ypur other makeup while lasting all day. ONE down side..it's so pricey but honestly worth every penny and it does last a long time.

        I've had a hard time trying to find the perfect color to match my skin, most companies have more yellow tones but I need a pinky tone. The fair was perfect for me. Also super easy application.

          Shade was too light for me. Made me look washed out. Also didn't like the shine, made my face look oily and greasy. Also pores looked more prominent.
