Stila Tinted Moisturiser – An Old Favourite Rediscovered

stila

I forgot how much I loved this product! I used to wear it loads way back in the day when I was still in my twenties and living in Australia. I recently received a deluxe sized sample and thought I’d give it another try. Ooh la la! It’s so fun to see my skin again! I feel like it gives me just the right amount of coverage to even out my skin tone but still have it look like my skin. If I have any blemishes I just pop a little concealer on over it and everyone is happy!

I know that this product isn’t for everyone. If your skin leans towards the oilier side I’d recommend looking at the Laura Mercier tinted moisturisers. If I’m feeling a little shiny I put a little MAC Mineralised Skin Finish Natural over it and it’s perfection.

As far as lasting power goes, I’ve been pleased. It’s even better if you set it with a little powder. Being a tinted moisturiser, you can warm your skin tone up a little with it as well so you look like you’ve caught some sun without exposing yourself to any actual damage.

Stila isn’t the easiest brand to find in the UK anymore. You can get it online here at lookfantastic.com.

I have been using The Face Shop's makeup base which acts as a great tinted moisturizer but I have been wanting to try the stila one since long. I guess I will now.

I have this too. I picked it up at a discount outlet for a very low price and I like it a lot. Unfortunately the shade I have is so pale it's only good for winter when I have no colour at all. The moisturising element comes in handy then though.
