    Comments about Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation:

    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.

    Unfortunately I purchased the wrong shade for myself but otherwise, the coverage is great, it's super light weight, and I can't even tell its on during the day. The only con is it doesn't stay on very well throughout the entire day.

    Comments about Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation:

    It's super dewy, it feels like my face is always wet, and sticky even when blending multiple times and with loose powder on top, coverage is medium not too much, need a concealer, it's okay but I've used better for the price.

    Comments about Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation:

    I have combination skin and oily in the t zone during summer or warmer months. I find powders to leave my skin a little dry looking in certain areas. This formula blends very well. I use my hands/fingers for quick on the go applications. It took me months to find something I liked. I finish the look off with an illuminizing powder and my skin looks natural, youthful and healthy. This has helped with controlling oil in the T-zone. Although, if you have really oily skin, I don't think this formula would be a good fit. I also use Dr. Feel good from Benefit to touch up the oily areas. I was having a difficult time finding a good color with other brands. The deep tan worked perfect. It covers just enough...not too much for day to day, but enough (buildable) for evening wear. It also does a great job at not rubbing off on my clothes as some other higher end brand formulas have. I really like it! This is the first time my husband has said your makeup looks good! He normally thinks that other brands that I have used tend to make me look "ashy" or give my skin an unnatural finish/look. The only down side is the cost; approx $41 for the bottle.

      Wear to work with a little under eye concealer and light powder on shiny areas. Lasts 12 hours for me. Doesn't look too heavy. Would need to add something with a bit more coverage for night time though.

        Comments about Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation:

        I have searched high and low for my perfect foundation. I have dry skin and this is perfect. I only have to use half a pump for my whole face. It is very natural looking and gives a healthy dewy appearance to your skin. I know it seems pricey but like I said a little goes a long way.

            • Q:

              What undertones do the shades have? As a very fair skinned girl its hard to find something with a yellow undertone so I went with light. The fairs tend to be pink and light tends to be more yellow. Im not sure if thats the case with this so I just wanted some insight. This isn't available anywhere near me so I'm blindly ordering online!

                A:

                It can be daunting ordering foundation online, for sure! We've listed shade descriptions for each shade below, so hopefully this helps:

                Fair: Light with neutral, slightly pink undertone
                Fair Light: Light neutral
                Light: Light neutral with yellow undertone
                Light Medium: Light neutral with warm undertones
                Medium: Medium with neutral undertones
                Medium tan: Medium with warm deep undertones
                Tan: Warm tan with rich warm undertones
                Tan Deep: Deep with yellow undertones
                Deep: Deep neutral
                Dark: Dark with red undertones

                If you're trying to avoid a pink undertone, we suggest Fair Light or Light for you! :-)
