        This is a great foundation for a dewy look if you have even skin texture, if you don't, it will streak and doesn't fill in lines or acne scars. Also dries flaky in those areas, but I've tried it on people with even texture and it's perfect if you like a dewy look.

          Comments about Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation:

          Overall I like this foundation. It applies nicely with fingers or a brush and you need very little. Serum foundation is not meant to be applied with a beauty blender due to the consistency. I have dry, mature skin and this leaves a nice finish but is not overly dewy. This is not for oily skin or those desiring a matte finish. One negative is that the color does darken a bit upon drying so keep that in in if deciding between two colors. Coverage is definitely light to medium so don't expect more. This foundation is meant for those that want their natural skin to show through.

              Comments about Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation:

              I've tried almost every foundation. I just tried a sample yesterday and I swear it covered everything. My skin looked flawless. I usually have visable, very fine lines around my eyes and slight ones on my forehead, when I wear foundation. With this one, I had none. I also use smashbox photo primer which helps a lot too. Love that stuff!!!

                  I love this product. IBefore, I used only MAC Studio Tech. I just purchased my second bottle of Aqua Glow and I don't imagine myself switching anytime soon. It is the most beautiful foundation i've ever had. It has golden reflectors in it that gives you a natural looking highlighted effect (even if you don't highlight). It has a beautiful dewy look. This is not the foundation for you if you prefer a cleaner matte look. I use to like the matte look until I discovered this product. If you're interested in it, I def recommend at least going to your local Ulta store and trying it on.
