Stila Angel Light Whitening Powder Foundation Review

Stila Angel Light Whitening Powder FoundationStila Angel Light Whitening Powder Foundation (~$47) was an Asian exclusive but thanks to its super cute packaging, I went through great lengths to get it.

The powder comes with SPF24+ and whitening properties to brighten your skin. I did not see any whitening effect but the high SPF is definitely a plus. The finish is also very matte yet it does not accentuate any dry patches.

The one thing I do not like, however, is the color. While I got it in my usual Stila shade (C), the foundation is very yellow and when it oxidizes, it gets darker by almost a shade.

As much as I love the cute packaging, I will not repurchase after I run out.

  1. I purchased this product at a store called ‘Dealz’ which is a branch of Poundland basically, they do different famous brands every week (Revlon, Sally Hansen and Rimmel are common). I seen Stila and had to pick it up, not realising how much I had saved. It cost me €1.50! I love this foundation, it’s not cakey like other powders and leaves a flawless finish, overall happy with the product!
