The forthcoming Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation is pretty impressive for a reflective, glowy look to skin. It absolutely does that light-catchy thing as well as evening out skintone. When I look at the information I have, the formula has an ‘Electrolyte Balance System’ comprising ionized water, Hyaluronic acid and minerals and the overall effect is ‘real skin’ but better with a complexion gleam when the light hits it. You can build it up from sheer to a medium weight, although iny view it’s pigmented enough for zero build – a single layer looked completely fine on my skin.
It’s hard to get any meaningful swatch when you’re after light catching on a product but this shade is Medium (from a line up of 10) and it’s perfect for my tone.
It’s a slightly different story with Stila Aqua Glow Serum Concealer – for a start, the large-ish looking tube holds only 7ml. The nozzle means you have to give it a good old squeeze and basically, the tube feels half empty from the get-go. And that’s because it is. It’s a pretty average concealer when I put it up against MUFE, so this would be a pass from me on the grounds of all nozzle, no substance. The foundation is £34.50 and the concealer is £19, both from the end of this month.
