Love it: Stila Stay All Day foundation and concealer


I don’t often wear foundation during the day, but when I do I’m super fussy about what I do layer on and have a few different formulas to play with depending on what I need it for.
One that I am loving this winter when my skin is drying the hell out is Stila’s Stay All Day foundation, which has the perfect velvety texture and moisturising properties that I’m looking for when I want something that stays… and stays.
In essence it’s an oil-free, high-definition, high-performance foundation that stays all day and delivers a flawless finish. The creamy formula includes unique “oxygen technology” keeps your skin hydrated and nourished, whilst a combination of botanical extracts have been shown to help enhance circulation and blood flow, resulting in an increase of oxygen delivered to the skin. 
This means that this foundation glides onto skin, immediately going to work to help minimise the likes of blemishes and imperfections. It is also enriched with an array of skin-loving ingredients, and unlike other 
longwearing formulas, innovative extracts help to slow down the onset of premature aging.
It is lovingly formulated without Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Dyes, Petrochemicals, Phthalates, GMOs or Triclosan, so gets a major tick from the cancer survivor me. It also comes with a creamy, full coverage concealer cleverly hidden inside the cap (along with a handy mirror) that you can use to cover blemishes, dark circles and age spots, although I find that the foundation has coverage enough for me to barely use the magical little extra.
The thick consistency of the foundation itself can be a little difficult to work with at first and judging the amount to use takes a bit of practice, but I’ve found that a small amount gives full coverage without being really heavy/cakey and the formula is so beautifully buildable with the right brush that it doesn’t take too much time to master at all.
This beauty is available now online and instore at Mecca Cosmetica - so what are you waiting for?
