I have it in bare and light. It's medium coverage, moisturizing, easy to blend, stays all day even after sweating without any darkening!
Neat packaging, great C/P (Got two shades during 50% off. )
Definitely a re-buy!

This is the first tinted moisturizer I've ever used so I can't compare it with other TM and I've been using it for about 2 months now. I can say that I like this tinted moisturizer. I have fair skin with yellow undertone so I use bare. My face is clear so all I need is to make my skin tone even and this really work, just the perfect coverage I need without feeling heavy. The only thing I dont like about this is it doesn't make the pores on my cheek smaller If I wear it alone, so on top I apply my Shiseido loose powder which really makes pores smaller and set it with face spray to remove the powdery look and if I want a dewy finish. Now I look flawless and fresh! :) I've read that a lot dont like the glitter but for me I dont mind. I like it :) The tube goes a long way too.. still searching for a TM that would hide my pores. But still a highly recommended TM :)

Don't get me wrong when I say this is great tinted moisturizer. It's a perfect color, it's creamy, it has surprisingly great coverage. I really really love it. I HATE the sparkles though. You have to apply minimal product in order to avoid the "Edward Cullen" look (as someone mentioned). To apply it this way, and I like to apply liberally, doesn't work for me. While I'll get great coverage and texture, the sparkles are just nonsense. If this had no sparkles I would repurchase in bulk.(LOL if I had the money of course $36 a tube) also, this is perfect for oiler skin. I have normal to dry, but in the warmer months I prefer a tint like this :)

I purchased this yesterday at Ulta, with a 20% discount. My skin is very pink and light. The color chosen was Tone, as Light had a very yellow base. I tried this on today in bright, natural light, and it's gold glitter, reminiscent of the JLo glow. If that look is what you are shooting for, here's your perfect product. On me it looks like sweat sheen. It's going back, obviously.

I absolutely love this TM! I have skin that is somewhat dry but breaks out easily. This product doesn't make me break out and makes my skin look like it's dewey and glowing. It has very sheer coverage that isn't very buildable, so I don't recommend it for anyone looking to cover blemishes. Also, it's a little shimmery, so if you put too much on you will look like a character from twilight if you step in the sun, if you use a nice sheer layer it'll be just enough to even your skin and give you a nice glow. I get so many compliments when wearing it!

Finally, a great tinted moisturizer for my sensitive skin. Chemical sunscreens tend to break me out but this one has only physical sunscreens and gentle on my skin. It blends in beautifully and although coverage is minimal, it does even out my skin tone very well. I don't find it moisturizing and use over a moisturizer but I have pretty dry skin. It doesn't dry me out like many foundations/bb creams do.

I find this superior to LM or any other TM. Firstly, unlike LM, this does have UVA protectiong; dirty little secret is that LM does not!. What use is that? The colors are better too. I am NC25 and use tone. This gives good coverage, as much as a sheer fdtn,and it wears with primer underneath all day. Great buy and a good price.

I at first really enjoyed this product, but as time went on I noticed that it began to look cakey on my face, didn't last all day and didn't actually moisturize. I'll probably be looking for something cheaper next time and less glitter.

I tried this product in "Light" for several days. So far so good. Fingers crossed! I have a hard time finding a tinted moisturizer or BB that is light enough to match my skin. Most go on too dark and show up slighty orange. I used Pur Minerals in "Light" for months. The formula blended.fairly well, though it was a tiny bit too dark and orange. The Stila Light Tinted Moisturizer blends well. I ALWAYS have to use moisturizer before any foundation, BB or tinted moisturizer. I use CeraVe cream, a rich moisturizer, on freshly washed skin. Then I use Smashbox color correcting primer in green to combat redness. Then I apply small thin dabs of the Stila product either with my finger tips or a sponge wedge. The TM in the shade light has yellow undertones. My skin is pale with slightly yellow undertones with redness. I would advise almost everyone to use an appropriate moisturizer first, unless you combat very oily skin. Next, apply a primer that is appropriate for your needs. Finally, apply and blend in this product. I am NOT a morning person & have little time to get ready but even with those three steps, I would guesstimate I spend 2-3 minutes max putting on face makeup, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara & lip gloss or lipstick.
*** Update: I have used this product for a while now and am still very pleased. It does seem to wear off by late in the day at times but it is the best color and formula match I have found to date. I still use Smashbox green Color Correct underneath. I sometimes just wear Color Correct or no makeup. I don't need a lot of coverage. This product evens the look of your skin tone without making one look made up.

I absolutely love this stuff. I'm super fair, but with neutral to yellow undertones (NC15 in MAC) and Bare works perfectly for me. A lot of the reviews state that this over moisturizer feels like too much, and I would agree, because this IS a moisturizer! It has SPF20 too, so I don't feel that I need to layer another moisturizer underneath it just for sun protection. I literally just apply this directly to my face (no primer or moisturizer), set it with a powder, and go.
I love that it's a little more coverage than your standard tinter moisturizer but a little lighter than your standard liquid foundation. I have really good skin so I only need to even out a few red areas and make everything look fresh. In the event of a blemish, I'll apply this as usual but dab a little bit of my MAC Pro Longwear foundation onto the trouble area with my finger or a foundation brush. Then, again, set everything with a light translucent powder. Love!

I didn't notice the sparkles in the store but when I got home and applied it this morning I noticed glitter on my finger tips! Not happy about that. Also, the coverage is too heavy. It caked up in places. Now at the end of the day it feels greasy. Sometimes cheaper is better - CoverGirl's Smoothers is better in my opinion, it blends easier and has no glitter.

I have been using the Laura Mercier TM, but it was just too greasy for my oily skin. This is absolutely perfect. Decent coverage but not too heavy. Great color selection. Some reviewers last year wrote of shimmer, but maybe they changed the formulation because it was matte with no shimmer that I could see. I absolutely love this!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Brown
I think this was just too heavy. I put on my moisturizer (that soaks in really nicely for me) before this, and it still felt like it just sat on my skin. After blending and buffing properly, it still just looked cake-y and foundation-y, which is exactly what I don't want in a TM. Even with the moisturizer, it still felt and looked way too dry on my cheeks and chin within a couple hours.
I was not impressed, and before I was even done with the bottle I had to purchase something else. If you're hunting for something that's truly sheer and lightweight, I would not go for this.

I have a hard time finding foundations that are light enough and pink-toned enough for my skin, and this is even harder with tinted moisturizers, which usually come in a narrower range of shades. I was thrilled when I saw this at Sephora and it was close to my skin tone. I quite like it and have worn it a lot this summer, either alone or over primer or sunscreen. You can apply with your fingers, but I prefer to use a sponge or a foundation brush for better evenness.

I love this product and have repurchased twice. I use the medium 02 shade which has a slight yellow tone which suits my skin colouring.
You need to use a base moisturiser first as the oil free version doesn't blend easily, but once you've done that the Stila product glides on. It's like a fantastic lightweight foundation and sunblock all in one.
I have the old 'hard case' packaging which I know some people have complained about, but I believe that it's been repackaged recently into a squeezable tube.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
I have tried a million tinted moisturizers and this one has been the best for me. I had it in Bare and now use it in Fair, both shades are light but Bare is more yellow and Fair is more pink...I'm neutral and both blended in pretty well but I think Fair brightens my complexion a little. I have an oily t-zone and this lasts several hours before I need a quick touch up w/ an oil absorbing sheet. I have repurchased it several times. Every now & then I'll try a different kind, but then come back to this. It goes on smoothly, sinks in rather than sitting on top, doesn't accentuate my fine lines, just lightly evens everything out. Used with a little blush and some loose powder, it's great.

The good: Unlike the other tinted moisturizers I've tried while attempting to replace my beloved Clinique Almost Makeup (RIP old friend), this product has shades available for both cool and warm skin tones. The "light" shade is a great match for my NC20 skin.
The bad: This just doesn't work with my oily skin. It feels heavy and looks shiny. Not for me.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Neutral Hair: Brown, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Hazel
I just bought this at Sephora in medium. I figured I would need one of the fairer shades, but medium is a perfect match for my skin, which has some slight yellow undertones. I am so impressed with the blendability - it looks incredibly natural, and makes my skin look so much more even. It does not cover obvious blemishes, but I didn't expect it to as it is only a tinted moisturizer. I will update if it causes breakouts or any other skin reactions, but so far so good!
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Brunette, Medium Eyes: Grey
I really wanted to like this tinted moisturizer. The coverage is sheer but quite build able, and it's consistency makes it easy to blend. Stila also offers it in a great range of shades, so finding a match is easy. I was absolutely in love with this product until one of my friends pointed out that it looked like I was wearing glitter. I hate glitter! The very fine particles of shimmer are hard to see when on the face, but are easy to pick out when the moisturizer is swatched on the back of your hand. If you like this sort of thing, then I would definitely recommend this tinted moisturizer. If you don't, look for something else!

This is the first (and only) tinted moisturizer I ever tried, so keep this in mind when reading my review. :)
I've tried several (mostly drugstore) foundations in the past, liquid, mousse, powder, and I've never been able to achieve a satisfying look. I have oily and dehydrated skin (very dry during winter), so anything I've tried always made my dry patches stand out more. Honestly, though, I don't really need coverage. I have some redness around my eyes/nose and on my cheeks, but it's nothing that a little bit of powder/concealer can't take care of. Regardless, I thought that a tinted moisturizer would be best to deal with my dry skin while giving me a more polished, flawless look. Soooo, last time I went to the U.S for a conference (I'm from Montreal, Canada), I decided to try out different TMs at Sephora. I'd never buy anything like that here because the prices and taxes are ridiculous, haha. Stila's new TM in Fair ended up being the best colour match.
The shade Fair appears to be extremely pink out of the tube, but it blends into my skin perfectly (for reference, I believe I am around NW10-15). The texture is light and smooth, and it's a good base for setting powder and blush. I prefer to apply it and blend with my fingers. I rarely use it all over my face, but mostly under my eyes (it brightens nicely), on my cheeks and around my nose. It's a bit sticky at first, but when it sets, the coverage is natural, makes my skin glow and doesn't make my dry patches stand out. I like that it's shimmery, but as the previous reviewer stated, it might not be for everyone.
However, don't be fooled because this is definitely not a moisturizer. For optimal results, I have to wash, exfoliate and moisturize my skin properly before applying this TM. As long as my skin is smooth, it's not going to cling to dry patches and such. I also rarely apply it on my nose because I think the glowy effect is too much and makes it look oily instead. I've been using it for approximately 6 months now, every other day, and I still have at least half of it left.
I'm glad I tried this TM first and I recommend it. I already bought a back up, but I may look for something else after I'm done with this one (just to change things up a bit).
