Most Helpful Critical Review I really wanted to love this...
I was so excited to try this product but it seems to have fallen short from the rave. I have super sensitive skin on top of that I tend to have blotchy skin. I bought this and the Stila stick foundation to compare or try to use together or separately for better coverage. It just didn't work for me. It was easy to apply however it looked cakey and grabbed any imperfections. Plus I'm extremely fair and it looked a little orangey. Stila I'm a huge fan of your products but I'll be returning both of these. :(

I love this foundation. I tried it the first time when it was on sale at the 'beauty store that shall not be named' and was ecstatic to see that Ulta sells it now. It's a beautiful finish that works well with my combo/oily skin. It's buildable so you can use a little for a natural look or layer it on for a more dramatic look. I haven't had any issues with it settling into lines or moving around during the day and I don't set it with power. I love the concealer that it comes with, it's just a bit more difficult to use it when it doesn't come with a wand leaving you to use your fingers or a brush. Either way it goes well with the foundation shade for a perfect match. I would definitely recommend this to those with oily skin to at least give it a try.

My new favorite foundation. I am 42 and push up just a little and apply. You dont need a lot because when you apply it spreads out with good coverage.
Really like this foundation!
Holly from Raleigh NC
I bought this on a whim because it was half price and came with a concealer. I thought it would be great for gym or traveling, because it doesn't take up much room. I have very dry, reactive and fair skin. Porcelain is a great shade match for me. I've done several wear tests now, and I really like this foundation. Used with a moisturizing primer, I did get all day coverage with no caking. As I prefer a more sheer foundation, I only used 1 layer and applied with a sponge. I think you could layer this for more coverage. It gives a more matte finish than I like, but illuminating primer solved that problem. A radiant setting spray would probably help, too. I was able to apply powder blush without using a setting powder. The foundation set enough in a few minutes.
The included concealer is a teeny bit dark, but works well. It blended nicely with my pinky finger and I also applied with a brush. I wore it set with powder and unset. Both applications lasted the same, but I'm no makeup expert. Any little settling in fine lines I just patted out. This concealer is not at all radiant.
I will repurchase this product. I do hope they change the packaging. It's beautiful and compact and I love the outside and appearance. However, I have always found this type of pump to dispense to much product. Trying to gently push down to get a half-pump usually doesn't work and sometimes leads to a situation where the next pump attempt dispenses a LOT of foundation. The serrated well in the top also traps quite a bit of product. Overall, this design, while lovely to look at, is inefficient and wasteful.

Nice to mix
Yes! Yes! And yes!!!!

I bought this make up because it was on sale and I happen to like other stilla cosmetics. I absolutely love it!! I have oily, acne prone skin with large pores and this make up covered all my imperfections nicely. My skin look natural once I was done applying the make up. I was impressed! I am so glad I bought this make up and will be buying it again: )
Lauren from Hinesville
I bought this because it was on sale. I am a bit of a foundation junkie. I like trying them all lol! I have to say I love this! A little goes a long way and it lasts all day. I have dry skin and it didn't go into any fine lines or stick to any dry patches. You will need a good setting powder though. I would have given it 5 stars but I didn't love the concealer. I have a hard time finding anything that beats my tarte shape tape.
Anna from South Carolina
Absolutely love this foundation and concealer!! the only one I'll ever use
LoveBotox from VA
Perfect medium coverage and doesn't feel heavy. The only downfall is that it makes my face sticky. After getting color matched, I drove home with the windows down and my hair stuck to my cheeks and forehead as much as my lip gloss.
Over the next few days I tried more primer, a little powder, buff buff buff. Within a few hours, the stickiness goes away and I'm just left a little dewy if that makes sense.
For color reference, I used Bare Minerals Bareskin in bare natural 07 for years. I bought this in hue 5.
Nadia from Phoenix
One of the best foundations I used. Lightweight but totally high pigment. Needs good setting 👍
My new favorite foundation!!!

Lasts all day... beautifully matches!
I've finally found the best fit for my skin

This is the best foundation I've ever used. It is exactly my color and it is smooth putting on, has dewy glow
Great coverage, skin doesn't breakout
Coco from Temple, TX
I love that it has the concealer section at the top to do some touch up after you apply the base makeup.
Great everyday foundation!
Vanessa from Los Angeles, CA
I use this product as an everyday foundation. The foundation provides medium coverage and works well with my combination skin. Overall, the foundation stays in place throughout the day without creasing. (I've been using for over a month now) I set the foundation with Stila In the Buff Powder Spray which leaves a beautiful finish. I would purchase this foundation again and recommend to those with combination skin!
Kim from Strongsville, OH
Amazing coverage that doesn't feel heavy or break out my skin. It covers my freckles and lasts all day (with a setting spray)
Jen from Oklahoma
I bought this product hoping it would last all day, but it completely breaks down on my t zone. I use the Stila primer with it, and it doesn't make a difference. For me it wasn't worth the money, as it doesn't work nearly as well as some of the cheaper brands I've tried. I'll keep looking for a good long wear foundation.
Yes! Yes! i will buy it again.

It's prefect! I just love it.
Preferred the older version
rebelsoul from San Diego
I think the older version was much better. From what I have read, the only thing that changed with this is the packaging. The old packaging made it a little hard to get out what was in the bottom as it got low, but I got creative and used a long q tip or a long metal cuticle pusher to get it out of the bottom. Another problem with the older packaging was how the product stuck to the inside of the cap after so many uses so now we have this new bottle they have come up with which is very pretty. The difference I see in the product itself is that doesn't seem quite as moist. It absorbs very fast (faster than it already did) and now when I try to put other products on, such as blush, concealer, highlighters, It doesn't blend well with these other products. I always keep a little foundation in a little empty compact container that would fit in my pocket so during a 12 hour shift, I can quickly freshen up without carrying a big bottle but his stuff thickens up a lot in that little container The older version did not do that. Another problem, with the first several uses, as you pump the product out, much more comes out than what you need, I hate to waste it so I put that in the my little container but like I said, that will thicken up super fast. I started adding NYX oil primer before putting this make up on and it makes a huge difference. My skin tends to be dry anyway. Over all, I do love this product, it does what it says, Stays all Day. I'm older and it doesn't settle into the wrinkles the way other foundations do. It doesn't come off on clothing, cell phone, etc..I always loved this product before they changed it and now buying that one on EBAY for the older version. I never really used the concealer.

i have very oily skin and acne and this covers beautifully and stays on all day. i wore it through prom and it didn't budge and looked amazing once i got home!! new holy grail
Not worth the money
Lily from Ohio
I have used this for years and recently I've been noticing it drying out my skin and leaving crease marks under my eyes. Doesn't cover dark circles or redness (never totally did) but I've decided to switch! Somethings changed.
Happy I tried it out
Makeup lover from Fort Lauderdale, FL
I was shopping around for a new foundation (I've been loyal to Kat Von D Lock it Foundation) but wanted to try something else. The salesgirl showed me this foundation and I love it! Compared to KVD, this one looks more natural and she helped me find a shade that blended well in my skin tone. I use moisturizer + primer and it stays all day. The concealer on top is pretty convenient too. I would recommend this to anyone if you're looking to try it.
My fav foundation and have tried it all!
Mandy from Tennessee
Coverage without being cakey and dies a fabulous job of concealing acne and discoloration without the heavy look or accentuating wrinkles.
Dries out skin terribly!
Sherrie from Athens, GA
This was recommended to me by the folks at Ulta by a sales rep near Stila's products - not sure if she works for Stila or not. I was really excited about it at first. I LOVE the dispenser. But I found that as I used it, it became less and less good - it was caking up and showing imperfections, and most importantly, it was drying my skin out terribly to the point that my skin is almost constantly dry, tight, and flaking, which has never been an issue with my skin before. I also bought the Stila primer to go with it and thought that might have been the issue, but even with discontinuining it and using a heavy moistureizer in the morning, my fake is still too dry. I'm going to see if I can return it as it didn't become a noticeable issue until I'd been using the product for weeks. I would definitely encourage you to be cautious if your skin is prone to being dry at all.
This Product is Excellent
Neicy from York Pa
This Foundation is far the best you get both concealer & foundation.I been trying so many different ones over the years and I came across this one and I don't have to look no more.
I didn't think I was going to like this
Krystal Blue from L.A.
The dispenser takes a minute to get used to, but it does allow for a brush or blender to dip, and wipe off excess, and it's nice to use instead of the back of my hand! lol. The shade didn't match as well as I thought, but its just warmer toned than I expected. It'll be fine when I get to have more than 5 min in the sun someday :) I will say that it definatly needs setting powder, or it tends to look unfinished. Perhaps because it IS true to the claim for long wear. Once I started using Stila's pump setting powder over the top, it was there for a 14-16 hour day, without falling into my creases or accentuating flaws.
