LOVE this! I am 48, dry skin and fair in tone and ADORE this foundation. I take very good care of my skin and get regular facials and peels: most recently the VI Peel. This foundation loves "good" skin. It is so easy to use and apply and "goof" proof!. I bought two colors to use as my skin changes for the season; warm and tone and BOTH work great and blend incredibily well. No line of demarcation. Looks smooth and lasts all day. Nice coverage; not too heavy but covers what needs to be covered. Very convienient that it encompases foundation, primer, concealer and powder in one package. They all do the job and I would not be without this. My new FAVORITE. A tad pricey @ 44 bucks but worth it.

I hate to be the odd one out on this foundation but i just didnt like it. My skin in usually oily and this foundation actually made my skin tight and dry. I flaked the day after i stopped using it. The finish was beautiful i wanted so much to like it. Staying power on this was amazing. Consistantcy was creamy and very mousse like. Great packaging with air pump. Color selection was very limited but i happened to luck out with medium for my nc30 skintone. Price was too steep at $44 dollars for 1 fl oz. A no go for me.

I really like this foundation. I normally stick with powder foundations because liquid feels too heavy on my skin but this one is very light and breathable. It blends wonderfully and I use my Sonia Kashuk Flat Top Blush Brush to apply it and and it lasts all day. The finish isn't quite matte and looks more satin-y on my skin.
I use the shade medium and my skintone is NC30-35, leaning closer to 35 right now b/c it's almost summer. I haven't noticed it drying out my skin at all and I have dry skin but I do put on a rich moisturizer (cetaphil moisturizing cream) before I apply this. I got a smaller bottle that came with my "The Makeup Player" and I would definitely buy it again but the price makes me a little iffy because its $44 for a full-sized bottle. I probably would've given it 5 stars if it cost a little less.

I was looking for a foundation that would save me time in the morning, so my first inclination was to find a powder foundation so that I could make the foundation and powder all one step. I'd been using MUFE Duo Mat, but, true to its name, it was way too matte. Then I tried DiorSkin Forever Compact and Fresh Luster Powder, which both kinda sucked. I have a lot of freckles, and none of these gave me the coverage I was looking for. So as I wandered the aisles of Sephora not really knowing what I wanted, I spotted Stila's One Step Makeup. Ooh, "One Step"? That's what I'm looking for! Turns out it saves even more time than a powder foundation because it also serves as a primer and concealer -- and, yes, it actually works! After I wash and tone my face, I apply my usual TwinLabs NaPCA Spray, let that dry, and then apply one pump of the Stila to the back of my hand. I dip my Sephora 55 Airbrush into the makeup and basically buff it into my skin; I have to re-dip a few times to cover each area. Then I use what's left on my hand on my undereye area (using my finger) and to spot conceal (using a concealer brush). Absolutely flawless, and it lasts for hours. It is expensive, but I guess when you consider it's four products in one, it's actually kinda cheap, relatively speaking! BTW, I use the "Light" shade, and I am on the pale side of NC20; in MUFE, I wear 20 in F&B and 115 in HD. The "Fair" shade in Stila was slightly too pale for me.

Overall, a very nice foundation. It has a mousse like quality. Velvety feel. I've applied it with fingers and brush and found my fingers work best. You don't need that much. It doesn't wear all that great but the first few hours are wonderful. I have in medium which is perfect for my NC30 skin which is slightly tan. I like chantecaille future skin better which is more like a gel.

Wow. What a great foundation! I put it on 6 hours ago, and my skin still looks noticeably great. It glides on, dries to a powder finish and covers all my flaws. It makes a wonderful smoothe base to put on blush. I top it off with a dusting of Bare Escentuals Clear Radiance.
When I first tried it on in Ulta, I liked it, but I put it back due to the price. Then I went out to the car, looked in the rearview mirror and promptly went back into the store to purchase. It really is worth the money, and you can feel the powder and the primer in it.
The only thing, I'm not crazy about the bottle ~ I'd like to see better how much is in there.

I've only used this a few days but so far I love it. After NARS Sheer Glow broke me out I decided NO MORE foundation with cyclopentasiloxane and I was thrilled to see that a NEW foundation was coming out that was cyclopentasiloxane-free so I had to get it.
Package is fantastic especially coming off the stupid NARS Sheer glow that has no pump at all and a glass bottle..ugh. This has a perfect airless pump. Yay Stila!
The color light is perfect and I mean PERFECT for me NC 20-25 skin. It is yelllow for sure. For reference I also wore MUFE HD 120 (also broke me out), I had Ceylan in the Sheer Glow, Mixed CS Buff and Nude, Halo Light. The Fair color is probably the best color match I've ever had for a foundation so that made me very happy (I usually have to buy two shades and mix.)
Anyway, I love the finish on this. It's very soft. Matte but not dry looking. However, I find the coverage to be light-medium so I'm not sure why they say this replaces concealer. It does not. Now I like a light coverage so this works well for me. I did not need powder on my combo skin which is nice. It seems to last very well.
I am applying this with my Trisha Sawyer foundation brush because of the mouse-like texture. I will play around with my 187 and BB sponge but the TS brush works very well here.
Fingers crossed this does not break my out in cysts. I'll update if that happens. Otherwise, I think this is a winner for me.
Edit: Taking my rating down to a 3. I don't have dry skin or bad flakes and this just seems to grab onto everything and after a few hours I look very patchy. I am thrilled it didn't break me out but it just doesn't look very good on my skin after more than a hour or two. Boo. Still, if you find everything breaks you out this one is worth a try.

I came across this product during some research to find products that do not contain parabens. I was delighted to discover that Stila made a foundation! I went to Ulta and sampled some shades. It seemed like the medium would be best. At first when you put it on it is orange-y, but you have to blend. Then it turns into the most beautiful finish! Your skin will look amazing. GO AND GET THIS PRODUCT!!!! It will change your life. And it is good for your skin. I do not use this for concealer, as I need much lighter concealer to brighten my eyes. FYI- I have tried over 20 foundations and I think I might actually buy a 2nd bottle of this. This is a first for me!!!

Love the airless pump on this packaging because you don't waste product and I like that it's a mouse like texture...however, it looks a little bit dry on the skin. One pump is more than enough for the entire face and I feel like it's more of a light to medium buildable coverage. It is long wearing and does control shine though there is something off about the texture because it is hard to blend in. I still need powder to set it though... would not recommend to someone with dry skin.... it will accentuate it even more...better for oily to combo skin.

At first i didnt like it because it made my "peach fuzz" on my face stand out but when i added my stila illuminating tinted moisterizer to it... OMG IT WAS GREAT!!

ok a mineral based foundation that has the feel of a primer, has full coverage and is waterproof? yes. a thousand times yes.
i can not even describe my love for this. it looks flawless on the skin it dries and doesn't budge.

After searching for the ultimate foundation, I've finally found it! Stila's new 1-step makeup has primer, concealer, foundation and powder all in one. Its AMAZING. I have combination/oily skin and so i always get a shiny t-zone, but I skip moisturizer and just use the 1-step makeup. It works wonders; it really gives you an airbrushed look!

OK. Prescriptives discontinued Virtual Skin. I have used it for years and loved it. I probably would have used it the rest of my life if Estee Lauder didn't kill the line. But that's another story. Since I heard of the closing of Px, I have literally sampled 25 different foundations and Stila's One Step is the only one that I have been able to use. I have very, very sensitive skin and even though I found nice foundations they all either burned my skin, left welts or didn't match.
I didn't have much hope for the Stila One Step but asked for a sample at Ulta in the lightest shade Fair. For reference, I wore Cream in Virtual Skin, MUFEHD 117, Revlon CS Buff, and shade B in Stila concealers. The One Step looks very orange but on my face, it blended very nicely. It looks like my skin but better. They claim that it's a primer, foundation, concealer and powder in one but I didn't find that to be the case. I still needed concealer under my eyes (Stila Perfecting to replace my Px Camo Cream) and used a little finishing powder (Px Custom Blended).
After several days I have had no burning, irritation or breakouts. It's like a small miracle. This product has no sunscreen or "anes" which for me is a huge bonus. It looks lovely on and wears wear. I definitely will be purchasing this right away. I an neutral to warm and don't think this would be a good match for someone who is cool. There are 8 shades and the Fair might not be light enough for extremely light skin.
If you are sensitive, give this one a try!

I am not a fan of this foundation. I am caramel in Revlon colorstay, and this makes my skin look ashy. I like the idea, but am not impressed. It may work better for a lighter skin person. I received this in the Stila Makeup player, so I do not feel like I lost any money because I like all the other products
