Stila Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer FOTD!

Hi My Loves!!!

I picked up a sample of the Stila Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer in the color Tone ($44.00 at Sephora) because my favorite girl that works in there was wearing it and it looked so nice. SHe said that she was impressed, so I thought I'd give it a go :)

Here's what the actual packaging looks like:

I think it's nice that it has everything in one container. The foundation on the bottom and the concealer packed on the top. How convenient! For $44 you get the 1 oz foundation, 0.02 oz concealer, a spatula and a mini brush shown above.

Here's what Sephora claims:

What it is:
An oil-free foundation and creamy concealer—the ultimate multitasking duo for flawless, breathable coverage.

What it does:
This pairing features an oil-free, high-definition, high-performance foundation that stays all day and delivers a flawless finish. Unique oxygen technology leaves skin hydrated, nourished and helps prevent premature aging. The formula’s synergistic 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 foundation glides onto skin, immediately going to work to help minimize skin blemishes and imperfections. It is also enriched with an array of skin-loving ingredients, and unlike other long-wearing formulas, innovative extracts help to slow down the onset of premature aging. This multitasker also contains a creamy, full-coverage concealer inside the foundation’s cap and a mini mirror for touch-ups. The easy-to-blend concealer instantly hides blemishes, dark circles, and age spots creating an impeccable canvas for flawless makeup application.

This set contains:
- 1 oz Foundation 
- 0.02 oz Concealer 
- Spatula
- Mini brush

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Synthetic Dyes
- Petrochemicals
- Phthalates
- GMOs
- Triclosan

For my FIRST IMPRESSIONS of this foundation and an APPLICATION....

I gave it the Flash test on the camera to see if it gave me the dreaded "white cast".... here's how the picture turned out:

There was no white cast and I think the picture turned out really nice. It's tough to get a foundation to look the same as your self tanner with flash photography so I say this passes the test for events where there will be a lot of pictures taken :)

It's been a realllllllly long time since I did a FOTD and breakdown of everything that's on my face, so I figured why not do it?
