Options

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.

    Comments about Stila Perfectly Poreless Putty Perfector:

    Wow! The look and color did not make me think I would really like it. I like to try different brands and when my daughter and I tried it we LOVED IT!! The coverage is amazing. I used a face brush and my daughter used the sponge and either way you use it your face looks flawless but light weight. To me it did not feel thick and cakey. I think you can use this for summer or winter. WE LOVE IT!!

    Comments about Stila Perfectly Poreless Putty Perfector:

    I was looking for a new low maintenance, everyday face product and came across mostly positive reviews for this perfector. I swatched and bought the Fair color first and it seemed to be the right shade for me but ended up looking too pale. In the pan, it also appears to be my exact shade. I thought the difference between Fair & Light was too much but Light ends up sheering out really nicely on my skin. I wish they had more colors and there was more product for the price. I hate the look of a heavily made up face so I really like that this product looks like natural skin while still covering up some redness and dark circles. I've used it with a couple different primers and concealers underneath and it works well with all of them. I've set it with It Bye Bye Pores pressed and Laura Geller Balance & Brighten. It blends really nicely on the skin and I like how I can actually use the sponge applicator that comes with it. It applies so nicely with the sponge that I haven't even tried to use any brushes with it. I also like how the sponge sits on top of the plastic separator. I'm considering buying a deeper color for when I spray tan. I feel like liquid foundation can exaggerate any texture on my skin so I love the natural look and feel of this product.

        Comments about Stila Perfectly Poreless Putty Perfector:

        Absolutely love this foundation!! It says light coverage, but I have no problem at all building it up to full coverage without any other products. I've had it for about a month and have only used about half of it with daily use. It will emphasize any patches of dry flaky skin if you're not careful (but honestly what foundation DOESN'T?) I prevent it by just lightly exfoliating and moisturizing before application and it's fine. I do use IT cosmetics OMG airbrush foundation brush instead of the included sponge since it's easier to build it up to full coverage while wasting less product, and it gives me a gorgeous natural finish (things can get a little heavy and cakey trying to achieve full coverage with the sponge) you don't really need a primer with this either unless you're SUPER oily. I've got combination skin (kinda dry on my cheeks but slightly oily on my nose, chin and forehead) and I just apply this with a little bit of Tarte's smooth operator finishing powder to set it and it gives me a nice soft semi matte finish for at least 12 hours without any creasing or settling.

        The woman at Ulta picked it out for me. It ended up being too light and gave a ghost appearance when I put it on my face vs. her putting it on my neck. It was hard to cover and I was using a ton of it. I was already starting to see the bottom after 3 uses. It started cracking in the container and I don't think it was worth the money for how little use I would get out of it so I'm returning it.

                  The Perfectly Poreless Putty Perfector is formulated for absolutely all skin types and for adult skin of all ages. Its creamy, blendable texture ensures a natural looking finish, and it is formulated to help smooth and blur imperfections such as pores and fine lines. Its feel is weightless, and it can even be layered over other foundations - no need to worry about caking. For best results on dry skin, moisturize skin prior to application and exfoliate your skin 2-3x weekly to eliminate any flaky dryness.
