This first-to-market, skin-perfecting, natural matte foundation has an innovative bouncy, putty texture which allows perfect pickup and buildable, undetectable coverage that looks like skin, not makeup. It goes on like a cream and blends seamlessly with a powder-soft mattified finish that doesn't feel like you're wearing foundation. Complexion instantly looks smoother, and imperfections and uneven skin tone virtually disappear, for a poreless, perfected skin appearance.

Can be worn alone, layered over other foundations, or used throughout the day as a mattifying, quick-fix, touchup for oily skin.

      Writing this for my teen daughter. She has used makeup for years. Has tried most brands and sometimes (most times) she abandons because they are too much trouble to blend well. She adores this foundation and has used it consistently. I love the look of it on her skin and it is so soft and smooth! She is combo with oily T zone like me. It performs well for her. I can enjoy this as a no make up look, but a am usefd to full coverage of my age spots, so this is not my preferred foundation. Perfect for lunch gut to medium coverage. Really surprising. I'm growing to love this brand.

          I normally use Bare Minerals powder and have been wanting to find something that covers more. A lady from ultra suggested this product and it was everything she raved about and more!! Coverage is exactly what I wanted! My only con is that it is a little more expensive than I would like, butttt worth it!!

            Very Pleased

            Comments about Stila Perfectly Poreless Putty Perfector:

            First off there is NOT 0.42 oz of product as mentioned on Ulta's site. There is 0.38 oz. Re the product, I am pleased with it. I don't use it alone because I need FULL COVERAGE and this alone does not provide enough to cover my Malasma. I would have to layer and layer, therefore it would look thick, heavy and dry. However, I use it for extra coverage on top of my full coverage cream foundation. My malasma is on my cheeks so I use the putty to take my foundation to the next level covering the Malasma that peeks thru. The putty 'sets' (somewhat sets) my foundation since the putty dries into a powder. The putty does make my pores look less visable and it gives me smoother looking skin. I use my dense flat top synthetic Kabuki brush to pat the putty onto my cheeks over my foundation. I only use it on my cheeks since I am using the Putty for the extra coverage for my Melasma and a tiny bit for under my eyes. I use a small tiny dry egg shape sponge to pat the putty under my eyes. I set under my eyes and my entire face with a very fine loose setting powder doing the "bake" technique on my cheeks and under my eyes and the result is very nice and smooth. I only use the sponge that came with the putty for touch ups on the go. However I don't really need to do touch ups since the steps I do make my overall make last for 13 plus hrs. I just take it with me for "emergencies". By using a soft napkin to pat oil off my face when I get oily is really all I need to maintain my look. I say try the putty on top of your liquid or cream foundation, either all over or in the areas needed for that additional coverage and then set it with a loose fine powder, either lightly or baking. I have done the water test on the putty as well and it passed. When I mist water on my face, water beads up so my makeup is repelling the water. I tried this with the putty alone and with my foundation, putty and setting powder. I got the same result.

                  This is the best complexion product I've ever used. It's got a unique, bouncy texture, specifically, it's a putty, just as its name describes. Those who complain about the consistency may have overlooked the name of the product. I find this product applies superbly with a dense, short-bristled brush, just like the narrorator describes in the tutorial included in the product description (above). I personally use the Real Techniques Expert brush and it works wonders. I'm impressed by the versitility of this gem: it can be used as a primer, a foundation, or a mattifier for touch ups throughout the day. This is super easy to apply, wears evenly, requires almost no maintenance, and it comes with a decent round sponge applicator conveniently stored in a separate compartment of the compact. I am 35 with combo/dry skin, clear complexion, and large pores. I end up a little shiny later in the day, which is the best result I've ever had with a foundation product over the years. The only downside is the limited shade range. I prefer light to medium coverage and consider this to perfect for me, and probably a variety of skin types as well.

                  Comments about Stila Perfectly Poreless Putty Perfector:

                  I love how this goes on. It's flawless and has great consistency. I just use a mineral foundation brush and it works great. It's a bit pricey but a little goes a long way. After 8 hours of wear though it starts to look patchy which really bums me out. If it wore longer/better I would give it 5 stars. I do have very fair, sensitive, acne prone skin and this hasn't bothered it in the slightest. Which is also a plus. I will continue to use it, and maybe try different moisturizers underneath. I really want to be able to give it a 5 star rating.

                      Hi C,

                      This product is waterproof and high performance for sure. If you get caught in the rain or perspire, it won't run or disappear. If you're submerged in the pool or a body of water for hours, and rubbing your face, I would say not much would be left.

                      Instead, try our Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Illuminating Beauty Balm instead. We guarantee that the makeup and sunscreen is waterproof for up to 80 min.

                      I use the sponge inside for touch-ups on the go. You just gently swipe sponge across product and then roll sponge onto skin. You can also Stila's "Double Ended Blending Sponge" damp to apply and literally melt the product into skin.
