I purchased this foundation only because I found it at tjmaxx for $12.99. I didn't hold high hopes for it. I applied this with a brush, and I was a little scared at first because it came off greasy looking. But once it settled into my skin and the rest of my makeup was on i loved the finish. It has a better first impression than my clinique foundation. I have 50 watts, which is a touch too dark, but I'm hoping to get back so I can get the lighter one they have as well.
I didn't give this a real go yet, as I had put it on at night to try it out, so I'm not sure of the wear. It does say it's a sheer to medium coverage. I find it to be more on the medium side. It also says it's buildable on areas that need more coverage. This did not oxidize on me. If you deal with oily skin this is not for you. I also did not try over a primer yet. Powder products went on beautiful over this foundation. I also didn't notice any odd creasing.

Found this at tj maxx for only $12 so grabbed it. I got it in the shade 10 watts which I'm assuming is the lightest. It comes in a little pump bottle which is very helpful. The coverage is light to medium and you can build it up but I prefer one layer for a nice sheer look. Gives you that nice glowing summery look. Has some shimmer to it which I don't mind in the summer, wouldn't wear it all year. Makes you look dewy and fresh. Didn't make my skin oily. Stuck to a little dry patch I had though, not very noticeable.

I found this for 12.99 at Tjmaxx. I have used stills eye shadows in the past so I was really excited to try this foundation. I really like the glow i get from this foundation. It is a super light dewy foundation. It smells like raw potatoes to me so that's displeasing. If you like a light low pigment foundation then this is the perfect one for you. I personally like more pigment in my foundation but will definitely use this on a day I want to look more natural.

Super natural and illuminating. It is a perfect match for me. I am rating this based on my range of use. This is not a product that I currently use every day. It is more for summer days when a lighter coverage is desired. My skin is combination and I found this comfortable to wear. It doesn't feel like I am wearing makeup.

This foundation was a mess for me. I tried applying it several different ways, and it always looked like a glittery mess on my face, with almost chunks of what looked like dry foundation. Not long lasting, made me oily, and I would not recommend this. However most of other Stila products are great

I just recently got this foundation. I'm not one for spending $38 on a 1fl oz bottle of foundation. But, i found this at Marshalls for only $13. I'm absolutely in love. It's a light/medium coverage and makes my face glow like I use an illuminator underneath, highly recommend it.

How does this compare to other foundation? Is it cakey or heavy?

Does this foundation oxidize, or does it mostly look the same all day long? Also, does it stay on pretty well, or will it leave marks on my shirt collars and phone?
