Full coverage foundation has been feeling too heavy lately – I’m in for a more natural look, so I’ve been sampling a lot of tinted moisturizers lately. I tried Stila’s Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer in Light, since I’m a big fan of the brand in general and hoped it would measure up to BeneFit You Rebel and Sugartint.
The color was a perfect match for my skin (fair with slightly warm/yellow undertones), and I was impressed with Stila’s choice of different shades, since some tinted moisturizers who shall not be named offer only one or two color options. The product blended seamlessly with my skin, and though it seemed thick, it didn’t feel heavy to wear. (It was just the teensiest bit sticky, though.)
Stila Sheer Color lasts all day without melting off, even in the nasty heat and humidity (which I fortunately don’t encounter much of during a Phoenix winter). In fact, my only disappointment with this product came in the matte finish. I love a little subtle shimmer in my tinted moisturizer to give my skin a glowing effect, but I’m sure lots of you girls would prefer the matte look anyway. Not me! I gotta glow, baby.
The verdict: 9/10 – A great every day product with only minor complaints from this corner.
Stila Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer sells at Amazon for $34.
