(Please ignore the state of the concealer, it's clearly well loved and pretty much all gone!)
Stila say : 'Product Description
I say: Before going cruelty free I was an avid user of the Revlon Colourstay foundation for oily/combination skin. Since going cruelty free I have tried various other products which have not come close!
This foundation however, I really like. It does stay most of the day as it claims to, although I do tend to get a little oily towards the end of the day. I don't mind this though as that's easily fixed and it stays exactly where it's put, unlike other foundations I've tried.
As I have oily skin, I can't say for definite what it would be like for dry skin. However it doesn't dry matte - I would probably say it's in between matte and satin. I think it would be fine for oily, combination, normal and maybe even mildly dry skin types. I would say that it's medium coverage, but definitely buildable. I personally find that I have to have a mattifying primer on underneath this otherwise the foundation tends to sit on top of the skin slightly, instead of looking natural like I would like it to. I really love the finish, not too shiny for an oily skin, but still allows me to have a slightly dewy looking skin, which I have not found it any other foundation. I'm so happy that I have found this foundation that I could sing it from the rooftops!
The packaging is pretty cool, it comes with a little spatula that's built into the lid which means you can scrape all the last bits out! No waste, woohoo! It also comes with a concealer which is GREAT! It's pretty creamy, which is perfect for my undereye area which tends to need a little more moisture. Warning though, if it's not set with a powder it WILL crease. It's a pretty good coverage concealer and covers everything I need it too, without looking cakey.
I purchased this from the website and it was £29.50, which I think is a darn good price, considering the quality of both the products you receive!
On contacting Stila about their animal testing policies, they replied with this email :
Stila does not test on animals, and neither do their suppliers. They are owned by a finance company, so no animal testing there either.
The products are vegetarian, but not vegan.
I hope this helps.
