stila stay all day™ 10-in-1 HD illuminating beauty balm with spf 30

It’s hard to recall our lives pre-BB Creams. We had to employ an army of products to achieve the effect of this single, elegant formula. Stila’s entry into the BB Cream market is as impressive as you’d expect, given the brand’s award-winning track record. Their deceptively light formula has 10—count ‘em, 10—functions, from antiaging treatment and inflammation-reducer to sheer tint and SPF 30. It also has been shown to boost collagen production and reduce the appearance of wrinkles by up to 67 percent. As if that weren’t enough, it blends beautifully and gives skin a radiant finish.

Orange attack

Not fond of this BB at all. I have light skin and this BB turns me into an oompa loomp! It does have some illuminating qualities but I hardly think a glowing oompa loompa is appealing any other day than Halloween.

Not impressed

The texture of this illuminator was like putting on a thick glue on my face, with hardly any benefits. It looked fine for a little while, but it faded off quickly. There wasn't anything particularly wrong with it, but there definitely wasn't anything great about it.

Had high hopes....
Purchased

I was looking for a BB cream that would provide good enough coverage to use in place of foundation on some days. However, I found this product doesn't cover as well as my drugstore brand. I usually use both BB creams or use foundation on top of. I may try this over foundation to get the illuminating effect it promises. I am 48 with light/medium skin and have the uneven skin tone, slight redness but not many wrinkles (yet!).
I will stick with the drugstore brand when this runs out.

This was okay

it not too glittery on the skin, feels really soft and watery when applying to the kin, and it does keep make up last long. I use it on top of my foundation to give me that glow effect.

its ok..nothing special

Ive been using this for a few months now and its only ok for me. Ive used other ones and this was is nothing special. I have dry skin with larger pores around my nose and I feel like this just makes me skin look caked on. Not a huge fan.

It has a mild shimmer, which I like. I think I chose the wrong color. It was really yellow on my skin. It is also really sticky and a little greasy feeling. My acne got worse when I used it. Probably a good product for normal to dry skin, but my combination skin just hates this stuff.

Not for me

Heard great things about this BB but was not impressed. Thank goodness I got a sample from Sephora before purchasing the entire product. Goes on smoothly, color made my face appear tanner which was great and a coworker even commented that my freckles/sun spots appeared to be lighter and not as noticeable. It is not sparkly (don't like sparkly products). Now for the bad, for me it just never seemed to absorb in. I felt like my face was oily the entire day. I could wipe it off on my hands if I touched my face. I also felt like I was shiny, like I needed a powder to absorb it.

just ok

Too light for my skin. I tried this bc I thought it would be comparable to something ive used before. I wish I had just stuck with the other brand.

Good product
Purchased

I liked this enough that when I got a sample, I ordered the full sized product. My skin can get a little oily with this, so I use an oil controlling primer under it. No visible improvement in wrinkles or fine lines after 5 weeks of use.

Beats Clinique

I have used this for about six months now and I love it. I had always used Clinique BB cream (and tried their CC but did not like it for my skin) but now I use this instead.

The coverage is mild to moderate, like one would expect from a BB, but my favorite part is how it smooths the texture of my skin. I have large pores and it does a great job of covering them (without clogging them).

The illumination is perfect too- not too shimmery or sparkly, just slight sheen.

If one was really serious about smooth texture and color coverage, it would be a great product to use as an illuminating primer underneath foundation, but I prefer to use it alone, with a little concealer and some bronzer powder!

I believe that this is a great value because I have used this daily and it has lasted me MONTHS!
