Summary
I first bought this foundation, in shade ‘30 watts’, about ten years and thought I had finally found a yellowy based foundation that looked natural on my fair skin, not orangey or pink looking which I had found with most other liquid foundations. This then became my every day (and night) foundation for many years until they stopped Stila in the UK suddenly and without warning! I was glad to see this back in the UK in Boots, and online, 18 months ago or so and stocked up again on my favourite illuminating foundation, hoping it was still as skin perfecting as I remembered.

Although this is a very good match for my skin tone (their range seems to cater well for neutral to cool, yellow tones) it offers little in the way of coverage, which is fine if you don’t suffer with blemishes or break outs.
It’s very sheer, lightweight and does helps to even out skin tone and any redness, giving a luminous, healthy glow to the skin. It does not however cover blemishes well, so if you do suffer in this area you will need some concealer on top.
This works best on normal to dry skin as it can appear quite shiny on oily skin types because of the illuminating particles and sheen finish. It is a subtle shimmer though, not an obvious glitter.

I have tried many illuminating foundations over the years, including Nars Sheer Glow, and find this Stila product one of the best for achieving that healthy glow. I think it works well if you have pretty decent skin in the first place due to it sheerness and light coverage, but it’s a super base if you just want something light to give your skin that glowing, healthy look and to even out slight imperfections, discolouration, redness and dull looking skin.

It does have a strange chemical smell which isn’t particularly pleasant but certainly not off putting and fades quickly. The product comes in a weighty glass bottle with pump dispenser.
