I love clever cosmetics. Multitaskers especially. And housing your foundation and concealer together is very smart indeed.
I have shade 03 light, and it’s about a shade deeper than what I would normally wear. It blends in well and adds warmth, but I’m not a fan of adjusting your skin tone by means of foundation. I think I’m more of an 02 fair girl, though, and I definitely want to test it next time I’m in Woolies or Truworths.
Nevertheless, the cream texture is great – it’s blendable, non-drying, semi-matte, and once it’s ‘settled’, you’ll hardly require a touch-up. There’s also the added value of the brush, which is great if you want to achieve picture-perfect application (and if you have the time; foundation application by hand takes me 1 minute, by brush takes nearly 10 because I end up faffing – just me?). I also kept misjudging the amount I needed – a little of this foundation goes incredibly far.
The part that I’m COMPLETELY in love with is the concealer though – it’s creamy, so it doesn’t cake, but it’s a full coverage concealer that manages to stay in place for hours on end – I absolutely love it.
Stila cosmetics are available from Truworths and Woolworths, and Stay All Day Foundation and Concealer is R395 – well priced for a high quality foundation, concealer and a brush. Available in 16 shades.
