Stila – Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer

Stila – Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer retails for 57$ plus tax at Sephora… Question is…
      “Is it worth it?”

Well here is what this foundation has to say:

‘An oil-free, high definition, high performance foundation “stays all day” and delivers a flawless finish. State-of-the art oxygen technology leaves skin hydrated, nourished and helps prevent premature aging.’

This formula is free of:
– Parabens
– Sulfates
– Synthetic Dyes
– Petrochemicals
– Phthalates
– GMOs
– Triclosan


-Medium, buildable coverage with a matte finish. (Completely true)
-Helps minimise pores, even skin tone and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  (Not so much… Well I haven’t noticed)
-Oxygenating ingredient has been shown to help skin breathe, helps promote healthy skin and helps slow down the onset of premature aging.
-Lasts for hours and “stays all day”. (Stays well for about 8 hours or so, as long as you don’t touch your face… this foundation will last longer if you set it with a powder)
-Oil-free & fragrance-free. (It’s oil-free and the foundation smells like lotion so it’s not bad)


-Full coverage and easily blendable. (It really is easy to blend)
-Rich and creamy texture. (Creamy indeed)
-Vitamins provide antioxidant benefits, while vitamin E helps prevent premature aging.
-Oil-free & fragrance-free. (It is oil-free and it doesn’t smell like anything)


I personally love this foundation only because its a medium build and you can build it up.
I have acnes scars and it helps me cover it when I apply 2 coats. I don’t use the concealer that it comes with because I have my M.A.C Prolong Concealer that I really like, so I just use that.

There are 16 different colour tones available to best suit your skin tone.

When I don’t fake tan I would be Bare 1.
(In M.A.C I wear NC15)

But when I do fake tan I would be Light 3.

In the picture above you can see that the bottle is not a pump but a scoop, it helps a lot when you want to scrape the foundation off the wall of the bottle. The concealer comes in the top lid.

In the end for this price tag you get 1 oz foundation, 0.02 oz Concealer and a Stila 35 brush for application. Can’t complain.

You can purchase this at Sephora and other beauty stores.
