    Comments about Stila Illuminating Powder Foundation:

    I never buy anything full price; however, this product is never on sale, nor applicable for discounts beyond rewards. That said, this is the ONLY foundation powder I buy for the past several years, as it is perfect for my skin (sensitive, oily & dry in different zones, easy & great application & coverage)...it's the only 1 I buy anymore!

        I was looking for a nice matte finish powder that wasn't too thick or cakey. I love this over my tinted moisturizer. Great coverage and light weight feel.

            I originally came in for a Lorac foundation that I had been wanting forever. They didn't have that, so I looked for something similar. This was just like the product I was looking for. I have extremly light skin, and was having a hard time finding something to match, but this works great. It gives me full coverage without leaving my makeup caked. I put it over a liquid foundation to give me a sheer finish. I don't have anything bad to say about this product.

            This powder foundation is part of my everyday routine. It offers medium, lightweight coverage and it looks like I do not have makeup on. It provides enough coverage to minimize (but not fully cover) my age spots, and works well over my mattifying primer (I have an oily t-zone) so that I am mostly shine free for most of the day. I do have to reapply for evening. I am Asian and this color works well with my natural skin color.

                It says you can use this wet for more coverage, (they don't explain how to wet it and use though) Any suggestions or pointers on how to successfully do this?

                  A:

                  Yes, to apply "wet", using a dampened makeup applicator sponge, press and swirl into the powder, then apply all over the face until you've achieved your desired level of coverage.

                  50 Watts, for medium skin with neutral beige undertones, may be your best match.
