After reading all the raves on Makeupalley and various blogs, I finally caved and got the new Stila Stay All Day Foundation and Concealer, an ultimate multitasking duo for flawless, breathable coverage.
Packaged in a 30ml clear bottle with a built-in spatula, the foundation touts an oil-free, high-definition, high-performance formula that utilizes an unique oxygen technology to leave skin hydrated, nourished and to prevent premature aging. It is also enriched with botanical extracts to enhance circulation and blood flow, resulting in an increase of oxygen delivered to the skin, along with an array of skin-loving ingredients and innovative extracts to slow down the onset of premature aging.
There are 16 shades available that run from light to dark, with both yellow and neutral undertones. I normally wear the third lightest shade in Stila and Hue, a light to medium color with yellow undertones, was the perfect match for my NC30 skin.
Compared to your regular liquid foundation, this has a slightly thicker, almost cream-like texture that felt surprisingly lightweight. It glided on and blended easily with both fingers and the #35 Flat Brush that was included, without highlighting dry patches or fine lines. The coverage was medium and very buildable with a satiny, skin-like finish that gradually turned dewy – but not oily – as the day progressed.
The concealer on the other hand, reminded me a lot of my favorite Bobbi Brown Correctors and Concealer. It was cleverly hidden inside the cap and came with a mini mirror for touch-ups. It felt insanely creamy and moisturizing and provided great coverage. The wear, just like the foundation, was excellent and managed to stay on without caking or turning orange even after 10 hours.
Overall, I love the Stila Stay All Day Foundation and Concealer. I have been using it every day since I got it and highly recommend it for those with dry to combination skin.
Stila Stay All Day Foundation and Concealer is available at Sephora and Beauty.com for $44.
