    Comments about Stila Illuminating Powder Foundation:

    I use this almost every single day. It really stays on all day. I only need to blot once in a while because I actually have oily skin(illumination isn't what I would normally go for), but I love the coverage and it wears so smoothly. I learned how to control the oil so I am able to wear this product and love it. I get compliments all the time. Thank you Stila!!!

        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!

                    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.

                    Hi there,

                    I have a olive medium skin tone. I usually use bare mineral medium beige. Can you tell me what shade to try in this powder? Thanks!

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