      Comments about Stila Illuminating Powder Foundation:

      I was anticipating a great light coverage with a porcelain finish. It looked great in the store. I got out in the humidity and then looked in the mirror and I looked oily and have blemishes that were not there before. I was completely upset and extremely disappointed.

            Easy and quick to apply. Good color match. Did not know prior to purchase how "luminous" my face would look. Prone to shine which made the luminosity just look oily. Needed to blot a lot throughout the day.

              I've been using this powder for years now. I tried to switch to Benefit last year when Sephora was out of my color...but it just wasn't the same. I have fairly great skin so I just need something to touch up my problem areas. This does the trick in seconds. I'm a no maintenance girl and this powder is perfect for my mentality.

                I have sworn by this powder for nearly 10 years! I get so many compliments on my skin. My face always looks flawless and I don't feel like I'm wearing a ton of makeup. Such an underrated product!

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