        Comments about Stila Illuminating Powder Foundation Refill:

        This project I was very iffy about mainly because of the packaging but I mostly use it to set my under eye concealer and it's amazing!! I love the way it gives a more natural matte under eye and doesn't make it look cakey. Throughout the day it stays on very well though some small creasing (I think it might be the concealer I'm using). I also use it to set small parts of my foundation like my t-zone and it works wonderfully!

          Comments about Stila Illuminating Powder Foundation Refill:

          I didn't really like this product, there wasn't enough coverage, but it was light enough for my super fair skin. I ended up returning it, because I have a Mirabella powder that covers and is light enough for 1/2 the price.

            This is one of the best foundation powders I have every used. It does not take a lot to achieve a flawless look. Makes not so perfect skin look great, makes good skin look airbrushed. Expensive - but completely worth it. I would not be without it.

                      I returned this item once I read the ingredients list which stated carmine as an ingredient which is crushed up beetles. Unfortunately, Many companies use this for an irridescent glow. I am careful with the brands I use for the animals and my health. They claim to be a cruelty free brand yet contain animal bi products and chemicals. I'll be using Zuzu and Pacifica until this company becomes vegan, cruelty free and natural.

                        I have very dry skin and I'm nervous about a powder looking flakey on me. I use this as a light coverage finishing powder more than a foundation. I like that you can buy inserts so that brings down the cost a little.

                          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?

                            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.
