        Comments about Stila Illuminating Powder Foundation:

        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!

                  Comments about Stila Illuminating Powder Foundation:

                  I have been a fairly loyal Bare Minerals user for many years. However, I have noticed as I am starting to age (almost 40) that my skin just is not the same. I am seeing it change in ways I do not like. I have become very frustrated wtih BM and how it would just "sit" on my skin. I went to Ulta to find a new solution.

                  The employee recommended Stila brand after telling her what my new problems were, dry patches, oily nose, weird acne, fine lines and make-up color that was just off, it no longer looked right on my face.

                  She applied several STILA products to my face: serum, moisturizer, BB cream, and then this foundation.

                  LOVE it. This works wonderfully with the BB cream. I have only used it with the Stila BB cream and the coverage is exactly what I want. Nice and light, covers my problems without me looking like I am drenched in foundation. I use a round flat kubuki style foundation brush to apply. I might lightly wet a concealer brush and use the product wet If I have a blemish or my undereyes look a little dark. I have average fair skin (not super fair) with pink undertones. the 30 watt color worked perfect for me. When I am done I have a very natural looking face with perfect color tone, and it looks healthy!

                  My only complaint is having to buy the cosmetic case separate. The products are not cheap to begin with so I feel I am being nickled and dimed with having to buy the cosmetic case.
