Holy sparkles

By ms.mk

from Ohio

Comments about Stila Illuminating Liquid Foundation:

The coverage was light and creamy, but so. much. shimmer. The glitter that they're using to 'illuminate' isn't subtle. I would rather not take a side of sparkles with my foundation, please.

        The BEST foundation I've ever used

              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.

                          Comments about Stila Illuminating Liquid Foundation:

                          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.

                                  We suggest 10 Watts for the fairest of fair, porcelain skin tones, and we suggest 20 Watts for fair-to-light skin tones. Please note that all shades can be tested at your nearest ULTA store, if you prefer:

                                When I use this, it has a dewy finish. I love it but it also transfers easily because I feel like it doesn't set completely. I am paranoid that it will rub off on my clothes. What do you recommend I do?
