i love it!! i currently own 4 lip crushes from the stila line and by far this one is my all time favorite, close call: acai. I love how its a plummy brownish color, very unique. I do prefer to apply it onto my cheeks than to my lips, the formula is kinda drying, but it looks amazing both ways.
i love this foundation. Its like a lightweight cream foundation but with an amazing staying power. The only con i would post is that you have to apply it with your fingers, i havent found a brush that would do a better job at blending it in my skin. the packaging kinda sucks if you travel or if ur a total klutz like me, i broke mine :( but it has a fancy feel to it. truly, one of the best foundations i own. i gave it 4 lippies due to the fact that the price (it was $14 at my walgreens) is kinda high for a drugstore foundation. Other than that, i recommend it. NC35- true beige or natural tan, either one works.

I am a mac NC 30-35, for this one i'm a #45 (i have some pink undertones and i don't love very yellow-y foundations) and if you love a full coverage foundation: this one is perfect for you! At first i didn't like it because i didn't know how to blend it correctly...i use either a stippling brush (the biggest one from mac) a beauty blender (for a more light coverage) or the best one is to use your own fingers. it doesn't look cakey on me, you don't have to use a lot of powder, just on the special spots that u usually shine after a couple of hours. the foundation is not that runny, its more on the dense side without it feeling like u have a mask on. i would recommend this foundation for anyone who loves a seamless/airbrushed look and advise those who have it and hate it to change their application routine to those that i have mentioned above.
