    Comments about Stila Illuminating Powder Foundation:

    I love this powder foundation and have been using it for years. I may stray and try other powders and mineral foundations but always come back to this one. I like how you can apply it wet or dry and it never looks cakey. I have extremely acne prone skin and this never caused me any breakouts. I hope they never stop making it.

            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.

                • Q:

                  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.
