The Stila Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer by Stila is an oil-free, high definition, high performance foundation that "stays all day" and delivers a flawless finish. It was recommended to me by a friend Make-Up By Kim Porter when I told her that I was in the market for a new foundation for the Summer.
FYI - I hate wearing foundation in the Summer. Sometimes when it is really hot outside foundation can be a pain and cause you to look oily, sweaty. I try to avoid it but when it comes to attending events, going on a date, special occasions I'd like the option of applying something so I can look fabulous! When I'm not wearing foundation (casual day, grocery store run, lounging in the house) I'll either wear nothing at all or some concealer in problem areas or a tinted moisturizer that is very light in coverage if I'm headed out for a bit.

This foundation I love because it adheres to the skin leaving a smooth surface. It is excellent at providing enough coverage to minimize skin blemishes and imperfections, without leaving your makeup looking heavy or too "cakey." More importantly it is long lasting and really does what it says "stays all day."
This packaging is great because in addition to the foundation it also contains a creamy, full coverage concealer hidden inside the cap with a mirror on top. I've tried a variety of concealers in the past and this one is the best at hiding puffy eye circles and dark areas! It also does not crease which is an issue I continuously had with the concealers from MAC.The set also provides you with a spatula to apply the product on your skin but I prefer to use my beauty blender sponge for a more natural look.
Overall, I am very happy the way it turned out. I am in the color Dark, 11
