I admit that I’m a bit of a sucker for new foundations. This one sounded right up my alley, “Stay All Day”? Yes! And from Stila? Please!
This foundation is pretty great. Yes, $44 does sound like a lot for a foundation when you can get many great ones for less. But! This one also comes with a matching concealer in the cap (love that) and it also includes a foundation brush. I think that’s a pretty good deal.
The foundation is a bit thick for a liquid foundation, it really is more like the consistency of Cool Whip than a foundation. It comes out of the bottle with a big spatula, and it feels very silky. It spreads easily with your fingers, and I admit that I don’t really use the brush that Stila so generously included with the foundation (I’m a finger/sponge girl for foundation). With a few swipes of my beauty blender (near my nose mostly) the makeup does look pretty flawless. Well, you can tell I have on foundation (the coverage is too much for it to be invisible), but it really looks good.
The concealer is a cake concealer and is pretty full coverage as well. I did think it was a bit too dry for some areas (I had problems with it on blemishes), but it worked really great under my eyes and around my nose.
I feel like we’ve been spoiled lately with so many amazing foundation launches. No more excuse for patchy coverage or incorrectly matched shades!
