Stila One Step Foundation is… Not a Foundation

Got this from a fellow gtalker the ever so nice babyjapnrs of The Pink Thought Bubble because I was on a lookout for a light, non comedogenic foundation that is in a convinient plastic pump form. (My current HG is Bourjois, but that will be on a different post)

I still use this on a daily basis because of how light it is and how lovely it feels on my skin making it look airbrushed. But in my opinion this foundation is more of a tinted primer than foundation. It has sheer coverage and when I try to build it up it ends up being cakey. So thumbs down for it trying to be a “concealer”

My skin is going through a peeling stage and when I use this, the peelings are really obvious so to those with dry skin, do not, DO NOT use this. But this will be best for oily skinned women because it has superb oil control and I only blot once during the day when using this foundation.

I like this foundation because it does not aggravate my already existing pimples and while on this foundie, does not generate new hoard of acne as compared to others. It’s tagged as non comedogenic so that’s another ++. This is not all in one and this is not one step. This will be probably one step if you have good skin already, but for me who have pimples and scars, and dark circles, a separate concealer is needed.

Im using the shade “tone” which is for NC20-25.

    I agree that it's like a tinted primer because it makes the skin smoother than it actually is and helps foundation glide smoothly. 🙂

    I'll be waiting for your Borjois foundation review 😛

    Rumor says Borjois is made by Chanel.

    Thanks @K. I can't find information anywhere kasi. Usually, on a websites 'terms and conditions' page… you will see information on who really made it or to which company they belong to. In this case. (c) Bourjois sya and Borjois ltd.
