  • The first thing I learned is that the powder foundation is sold separately from the compact, which is refillable and adorable

      TRUSTWORTHY

      I originally purchased this several years ago after hearing that it was a powder foundation that would also provide the illuminating glow that I was looking for. I had never before tried a powder foundation and was interested in giving it a try. The first thing I learned is that the powder foundation is sold separately from the compact, which is refillable and adorable.

      However, this is an added expense, especially if it turns out that you do not repurchase the foundation, in which case you will have no need to refill the compact. The compact is round with a mirror on the inside of the top lid and contains


      two tiers.

      The top tier is intended to contain the foundation disk and the tier beneath that contains the slim sponge applicator. Although I have used the sponge that came with the compact, I have more often applied this foundation with a fluffy brush.

      Furthermore, I have found that I did not get enough coverage from Stila Illuminating Powder foundation even though I really do not have any serious skin issues, and merely wish to cover a little redness. Therefore, I have found myself using it instead as a finishing powder.

      For that purpose, I have found it to be adequate, but not my favorite. I just ...


      • don’t think it gives enough of the illuminating glow that I desire.

        I have found another limited edition Chanel powder that provides the glow that I like so I know that it can be done and that Stila Illuminating Powder foundation just falls short for me in that area. If you decide to purchase it, you should be aware that it can be used either dry or wet.

        I have never tried it wet so I cannot say whether that would improve its performance or not. Stila Illuminating Powder Foundation is not inexpensive, especially when combined with the separate refillable compact, and I think that there are better

        powder foundations out there as well as better finishing powders.

        After several years, I have now reached the last crumbs of my Stila Illuminating Powder Foundation and, since I have decided not to repurchase, I am one of the people who will now have an excess empty, refillable compact whose fate is not to be refilled. If you are contemplating whether to purchase Stila Illuminating Powder Foundation, I recommend that you definitely try it before committing to the purchase.

        While this powder foundation may be great for you, I suggest you seriously try to gauge how well it will work for you in terms of coverage and illumination before committing to the full purchase.
