So, Stila’s latest offering is Stay All Day Foundation and Concealer with the concealer built into the foundation bottle lid. The foundation also comes with a brush if you prefer a brush application for your base. Its a very handy thing to have your concealer built in to your foundation; you never lose it, for one and for two it cuts down room in your make-up bag although I will say, it is one big old lid on this foundation. The inclusion of a mirror in the concealer lid is brilliant.
Better yet, this is an oil-free formula, so anyone with oily skin should be fine to use it, and the formula contains botanical extracts to give a little anti-ageing boost. There is also a silicone elastomer which makes for a very smooth application and appearance. That is both good and bad – I know lots of you don’t like silicones, but I do and they don’t upset my skin so I am lucky with that. Stila stay All Day Foundation and Concealer comes in 16 shades, including very dark for black skin.
But, on the down-side, it is £29.50 which I think is very expensive for a Stila product; I’d personally rather buy into Dior or YSL at that price and it has got one ugly applicator spoon-thing that comes out of the pot product drenched. I get it that it lets you scrape the last bit from the bottle, but really could do with a re-design. As I mentioned, the lid is very long, but the concealer is a very, very tiny amount in relation to the foundation accounting for a tiny fraction of the lid. There is also no SPF (fantastic! claims the make-up artist) which is just odd.
