    Comments about Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation:

    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.

        My daughter has very fair skin & matching her skin tone was difficult, except for Stila. Love their products & it matches her skin perfectly. Wish they would bring back their face wash & moisturizer!

        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.

            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.
