    Comments about Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation:

    I have been wearing this foundation for a few weeks now and I really love it. It gives such a healthy radiance to the skin. It has good medium to full coverage and I find that it does a good job hiding any blemishes. I have some oily parts of my face on my nose and chin, and I find that I need to set these places with powder when using this foundation. But that is something at doesn't bother me in the slightest. I prefer not to set the rest of my face, and the foundation stays on well throughout the day, while giving me a more dewy, glowy finish. I find that this foundation does not break me out and I have acne prone skin. I don't think there is anything else I would want in a foundation. I HIGHLY recommend to anyone who loves a good, natural glow on their face but still wants some coverage.

      Comments about Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation:

      I tried this because it was on sale and I love some of my other Stila products. I usually wear Estee Lauder or Mac foundation. My daughter said my face looked dewey,fresh and younger. The only problem I had was when I would touch my face the makeup would rub off onto my fingers. I will try using something to set it better on my next application.

        I love this product. It has a dewy beautiful glow to it. The only issue I have is it wipes off easily, so I just have to make sure to set it with a powder and I keep powder on me to touch up spots through the day.

            The only complaint I really have about it is that it is very oily. I always have to apply a layer of setting powder over it because it makes me look greasy. However, after I throw the powder over it, it looks fantastic!

                  Hi Jesse,

                  Use your normal moisturizer. Once it has absorbed into skin, then follow with your favorite primer, or just jump right into the foundation step. This formula should not affect your skincare adversely, but advance the benefits with additional hydration and balance on the surface of the skin!
