I was dissapointed in general with this powder foundation. I guess I expected something miraculous, but it just looked and felt like another run-of-the-mill pressed powder in a pretty tin.

First the packaging: Can you say overpriced? Second of all, the refill part doesn't stay stuck in the compact, the woman at the cosmetics counter had to loop some tape to put underneath the pan. I am wondering if I got a defective one, as other Stila pans use magnets, did anybody else experience this?
As for the product itself, I didn't notice too much illumination, just a lot of heavy coverage that didn't last very long with my oily skin. It was too much for the daytime. Too fake looking, and came off very easily if My fact touched anything. I preferred the MAC StudioFix, but I have decided to avoid powder foundations altogether, though they CAN be handy in a pinch as they go on so quickly and easily.

This was probably one of the most negative cosmetics experiences I've ever had.
First of all, I think it's highway robbery that they make you buy the compact separately. $22 for a container that you can refill with a product *you may never buy again*. It's like you're expecting to make a long-term commitment to this product before you ever use it, or else just accept the fact that you're paying a total of $42 for powder foundation. The compact itself is large, but don't let that fool you into thinking that you're getting more makeup for you're money. You're not.
The next part is not Stila's fault, but I had a horrible reaction to this product. I do not have sensitive skin at all, and I am not prone to skin allergies, but I broke out-- not in pimples, but in large hives and red blotches. I needed to take 2 Benadryl to tame down the reaction.
Overall I think Stila is an overpriced line, and I abhor the way they put their shadows and powders in ultra-cheap packaging to force you into buying their pricey palettes and compacts.

I love this powder foundation so much!! I wear liquid for the office and evenings out. But this is so onderful for the days I had class and for the weekends. Quick and perfect. MAC studiofix broke me out, but this is marvelous!!

Great powder foundation I've ever used. It gives a powdery matte finish, but not ghostly like most powder, it makes my skin very ILLUMINIUM just like it promised.
But not overly glowy/shiny. I am on my second refill... again, this lasts a long time.

This is one of my all-time favorite powder foundations. It goes on smoothly, offers a nice medium coverage, and doesn't look cakey. It also stays put on my oily face even after I blot. I wish the colors were a bit more yellow-based, but they are probably suitable for most people. I love the compact both in form (lovely aluminum compact that reminds me of T. LeClerc but a bit more whimsical) and in function (separate compartment for the sponge for hygienic reasons). Also, I'm glad that I can just buy refills for this product since it is a bit pricey.

I did not like this foundation. I can not get the right color, they always seem to have too much white pigment. I tried and tried, because it is easy to apply and reasonably priced, I just did not like the look of it on my face. Also, I found it to be very drying and I just do not like the entire look of the foundation. I prefer a dewier look, like Water Canvas or Chantecaile Future Skin.

This is a powder foundation that seems to work for me color wise and texture wise. Previously, I used UDSS in vision. The only way it worked for me w/o looking caked or chalky was by using a powder brush. I found this not to be true with the IPF. I can use the sponge and powder brush. The color match was also great (60 watts). My only gripe is the price of both the compact ($20) and powder ($22), which come separately.
