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.

Find your perfect shades of Stila's Complexion Collection.

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

      I absolutely love this product. I wear it every single day, and it lasts so long! I get about a month to a month and a half of use out of it. The only con is that I find myself reapplying it throughout the day. But it looks awesome and covers the face naturally. I have never used a better product.

      Cons

        • Combination Skin
        • Full Coverage

        Comments about Stila Perfectly Poreless Putty Perfector:

        This product is absolutely amazing! The formula is super unique - It's a wet/dry formula. The product looks like a regular powder in the packaging, but when you use the sponge to apply it - it goes on kind of like a soft cream but instantly blends into a soft matte finish, kind of like a powder. It's pretty hard to explain (I suggest swatching it at the store), but it's a wet/dry formula - that's all you really need to know.

        It applies super easily, blends instantly, and has no "drying time". I can finish applying it to my face in like 2 minutes. It's a super quick and easy product to use. This is a really great product for everyday use. It leaves the skin looking flawless and airbrushed. It's super lightweight (I can't feel it at all), but the coverage is still buildable to meet your needs. I have a TON of redness/pink skin and this completely covered it all. I was shocked that the coverage was so awesome. I'm really into full coverage foundations, so this was perfect. I have combo skin and it did not cling to dry patches and it didn't get oily.

        Bottom line: This product gives you full coverage, but with the natural look and feel of a lightweight foundation + super quick/easy application

            Comments about Stila Perfectly Poreless Putty Perfector:

            This is a product i absolutely must have 24/7. I got it the first time being very skeptical because its a weird texture/formula but once i learned how to use it i was in love. I originally got it as lazy make up for days when i dont feel like putting on a full face of make up i can just buff this on top of primer or BB cream and it gives me that smooth flawless finish. Even tho i do have some texture on my skin this product works really well at hidding it. On days when i do wear a full face of make up i'll use a beauty blender to to pat this on the areas where i have a lot of texture or want to be more matte. I love the fact that it doesnt settle into my smile lines and even tho my skin changes depending on the weather i can be very dry to very oily this product works for me all year round regardless of how my skin is acting. I have acne probe skin and i can say i have not experienced any break outs with this product either. It stays put for my 8+ hr days in the humidity of Texas weather. Its Talc free which i love and it lasts me for about half of the year because you use what your sponge/brush picks up without the product flying all over the place. All in all highly recomend it and will continue to buy!

                      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.

                      Hi Joann,

                      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.

                      Yes, this foundation works well to smooth skin texture and pore size. If you have deep scarring, I would suggest using this in conjunction with your Porefessional Primer that you love for optimal results!

                      Yes this foundation is hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic! It's amazing when used as your primary foundation or even a foundation primer beneath a liquid foundation because of the smoothing formula. It's truly a must-have,
