This makeup did not work for me at all. While it blended pretty smoothly, the dewy finish was not good for my skin. I actually have dry skin too, but this made me look shiny and weird. The color...

Although this foundation applied smoothly and produced even coverage, I found that throughout the day my skin became oily, and the dewiness of the makeup turned into a mess of shine. Like some of...

I like this foundation. I managed to pick it up for less than a tenner in 20w which was only slightly too dark/yellow for me. I love the sheen and glow it gives your face. I've had several...

I use this in 10 watts and i'm NC20 in MAC. I tried 20 watts but found it a bit too dark for my liking. Since my Chanel TI in #10 Albatre was discontinued I have to say that this is the next best...

Kind of disappointed. I'm an NC30 and 30 watts was a pretty close match. I have combination skin. This started to get a little greasy as the day went on in the cooler weather, especially in my...

I have been searching for the holy grail of foundations for years. As i grew older - I hated how any makeup looked on my very (and increasingly) pale skin. I have no wrinkles visible - but...

Oh, Stila, how I wanted to love this foundation! I love the powder formulation for travel, so I thought this would be a great liquid! But no, it was a huge disappointment. The sheerness was...

WAY too light of coverage for me. I have acne scarring all along my jawline, and mild rosacea, so it didn't work for me. The formula was nice, so hopefully it will work for others :)
