Swatches ~ Stila Natural Finish Oil Free Makeup and Illuminating Concealer on Brown Skin


Stila Natural Finish Oil Free Makeup and Illuminating Concealer
 Stila Natural Finish Oil Free Makeup (discontinued) is definitely a hidden treasure in the world of foundations.  This particular natural finish oil-free makeup is being discontinued so I decided to post my recommendations just in case you wanted to try it while it's marked down to half price on the Stila Website. Update: This foundation has been replaced with the Aqua Glow Serum Foundation.

There's a range of colors from dark to light and my perfect color happens to be "k".  As you can see, it has  yellow undertones which means it might not be a good match for many African American women who are known to have orange undertones in their complexions.

I'm one of those that also has orange undertones and i've learned how to work with many foundations by applying a slightly darker powder foundation over it.  I normally use Mac's NW43 over most of my foundations to tone them down a bit and even them out.  As a women with oily skin, I use oil-free foundation religiously during the summertime and this is one of my favorites.

This is such a beautiful creamy concealer and i'm absolutely in love with it.  I should mention that it's been discontinued and is no longer on the Stila's website, however you can still find it on Amazon for a really low price.  I'm not sure why it's been discontinued, it seems like whenever I fall in love with something... it becomes obsolete, I guess that's why we have to buy backups!
