Spring is almost always my favorite time of year for Makeup launches. The return of pastel shades, softer applications and glowy skin have me frothing at the mouth, and aggressively stalking Instagram for new launches. This year is no exception - and the new Stila Aqua Glow launch has me chomping at the bit!
This foundation comes in a 30ml bottle and retails for $59.00 CAD. The self loading dropper makes for a perfect amount of foundation everytime, and the texture is amazing. The formula is very fluid, and filled with skin loving ingredients like ionized water and hyaluronic acid. Not only do you get an immediate glowing complexion thanks to the reflective pigments, but your skin will be more hydrated with continued use of this foundation. The coverage is light to medium but definitely buildable, and even with a few layers on, it never looks cakey! One of my favourite things about this foundation is even when set with powder, it keeps its glowy finish. It by no means is the longest lasting foundation out there, but with the help of primers and setting sprays, I don't feel the need to touch up throughout the day while wearing this. I wear the shade Fair/Light and I have experienced no breakouts or reactions! I am definitely a fan of this product, and I think it would make a great addition to anyone's collection who might be looking for a fresh glowy complexion for Spring!
The concealer also comes in a very serum based formula, and boasts the same skin hydrating ingredients as the foundation. I am satisfied with the coverage, however this concealer tends to crease under my eyes in a really bad way. If I use the baking method with my trusty Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Loose Powder, this problem is no longer an issue, so it's not a deal breaker for me. The color range of both products is great, and there really is something for everybody. Below I will post the shades, as you will see the lighting is completely different in this one shot for some reason, but you can still see the shades!
Again, I use the shade Fair/Light in the concealer, which retails for $35.00 CAD for 7mls of product.
Overall, I am very happy with this launch. Besides the issue of the concealer creasing under my eyes, everything else is a green light for me. Glowy skin, light/medium buildable coverage, and a great color range!
This is just the start for Stila, they are really launching some great new items, and if you've noticed they have also gone through some renovations with the look of their line. The new classy gold packaging is amazing! Goodbye to the drab cardboard packaging and hello luxury!
