The Pale Skin Diaries: The information in this post is only correct at the time of posting. I apologise in advance for any messy counters and testers, you know how grim they can be sometimes! All of the products are swatched on my hand for the purpose of being able to see them clearly but please be assured I also test everything on my cheek for accuracy. For reference purposes I am slightly paler than MAC's NW15. Please note that I am not reviewing all of the products in this series I am simply illustrating and discussing how fair the palest shades really are. Apologies for the lacking photo quality which is due to the photos being taken with my phone as many stores will not be DSLR friendly! I hope you enjoy this series :).
When I think of Stila I think of their gorgeous eyeshadows (Kitten, I'm looking at you!), their Kajal eyeliners and gorgeous style and packaging. It's a brand overall I love and love purchasing from. One thing I haven't really checked out is their foundations and concealers, so one by one, I'm going to swatch and show you all just how good, or not, they are.
Stay All Day Foundation and Concealer- Bare
Illuminating Liquid Foundation- 10 Watts
Illuminating Powder Foundation
CC Colour Correcting Cream with SPF 20
Overall feedback on pale foundations at Stila: I would recommend trying and testing the Illuminating liquid and powder foundations as the 10 Watts shade seems very good for fair skin and is worth exploring. Otherwise everything was too dark or yellow toned for me to recommend. However, if you have fair skin with a yellow tone perhaps go and swatch for yourself and see. But overall I will stick to Stila for everything else just maybe not face products for me personally. I'm afraid the counter I visited didn't have the CC Colour Correcting Stick, the Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Beauty Balm (though I have used a Stila beauty balm before and it was actually very good for fair skin!) or the Perfecting Concealer.
Overall score: C+
I hope you all found this helpful and I'll be sure to be back with a new post soon. For the record, I want to stress how much I love Stila Cosmetics for their gorgeous eyeshadows, eyeliners and palettes. Plus, their packaging is divine!
