        Comments about Stila Illuminating Liquid Foundation:

        This is the only foundation I've used for almost 4 years. I use the 60 watt in the summer and 50 in the winter. I tan in the winter too so I'm not pale. It's seriously the best foundation I've ever used in my life. Well worth the money because a little goes a long way. I use it every day and only have to buy a new bottle every 6 months or so.

          Comments about Stila Illuminating Liquid Foundation:

          I have sensitive and dry skin and have been on the search for a light/medium coverage foundation. Typically I'll use tinted moisturizer because I haven't found a foundation I like. Until now. I got the 60Watt illuminating foundation and I can't believe how amazing my skin looks. I've got the dewey JLo look I've always wanted. My skin looks flawless and I've had no reaction to it with my sensitive skin. This weekend I'm going back to get their tinted moisturizer for lighter coverage on weekends. Can't imagine using any other product after this.

                    I bought this because of the description and was hopeful that it would be what it said it would however that was not the case. I read reviews quite often before making a decision as to whether or not I'm going to buy something. They were mostly good so I went ahead and bought the foundation and was very disappointed. It went on very thin and oily and was difficult to get it to stay put. I had a hard time blending and it broke up after just a few minutes. I tried building the coverage but it was just not working. Normally I would have just found a different one and went on but in this case I thought I'd write a review since they're generally very helpful for me. Also this foundation was very expensive, especially for the quality. I hope this is helpful and I advise against buying this product.

                          Shortly after I began using this product, I developed and am still fighting a massive break out. I have isolated this as an issue due to the fact that nothing in my routine had changed, except for the addition of this product.

                          Oh Stila 10 watt, I really wanted to love you. You matched my super pale skin and did not turn me orange. However, I could not ignore the fact that it didn't even provide enough coverage to cover up the damage it did to my poor skin.

                              I would not call this a foundation. It has zero coverage. I would use it as a highlighter if you want a little sparkle or a dewy look. I would not pay that much for a highlighter, though. This is a waste of money as a foundation, unless you are about 14 with flawless skin.
