STILA AQUA GLOW FOUNDATION

Hi everyone!

I recently picked up Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation to try out. I purchased it online at Sephora. However, for those of you who didn’t know (I didn’t know this before my purchase), Sephora is cutting ties with Stila and it will soon be dropped from their website. For Canadian girls, Stila will still be available at Shoppers. For American girls, find it at Ulta!

This foundation claims to be luminous, lightweight and buildable!

The product blended nicely, and I would say it gave me a light to medium coverage. It doesn’t look cakey, but with some primers, it’ll ball up. The finish is definitely luminous, but after about six hours, it begins to look oily on my dry skin. In my opinion, I preferred a beauty blender with this foundation, however, due to it’s thin nature, the sponge does soak up a lot of product.

Overall, this foundation is nice…however, it isn’t a holy grail. Here are some of my pro’s and con’s:

PRO’S:

  • Beautiful packaging with a convenient dropper
  • Natural
  • Luminious and glowy
  • Blends well

CON’S:

  • Does get oily
  • Likely won’t work for oily skin types
  • Temperamental with some primers and balls up
  • Doesn’t cover all of my redness

Have you tried this foundation? Or do you have any suggestions for a girl that loves a glowy look?

DISCLAIMER: After trying this out, it was brought to my attention that Stila tests on animals. For me, that is enough to not repurchase. Unfortunately, this will be my last purchase with Stila. I still wanted to post about this product incase anyone is interested!

    Great post, could you review the still liquid lipsticks? I’m thinking about buying them but I want a second opinion! :)https://lilypixtheblogger.wordpress.com

      I’ve tried Patina by Stila and I quite liked the formula. It didn’t ball off on my lips like a lot of liquid lipsticks! I prefer Kat Von D over Stila though!

    Love this review! I’ve heard so many amazing things about it, especially from people with dry skin! I didn’t know that Sephora won’t be carrying Stila products anymore! I wonder why? I love all your photos with the fuzzy white blanket in the background! Very pretty! I’d love to see more of your blog’s photos so please feel free to follow me on Instagram if you have one. My username is makeup_by_makena and I’d love to follow you! xoxo

      Wow thank you so much for taking the time to read! And I’m not sure why, I think there was a falling out between companies…at least that’s what the sales person said!

    Thanks for the review! For a glow, I’ve heard great things about NARS Sheer Glow Foundation and NARS doesn’t test on animals, yay. I had no idea Stila tested on animals. Luckily enough, I only have the odd lipstick. XO
