  1. Disappointed

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    Why discontinue the best foundation on the market? I have been happily using this foundation for years and was until now, very loyal to the brand stila. Lemme guess! You'll repackage it and sell it for a ridiculously inflated price?

  2. Bring it back, please.

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    I am so upset to find out this has been discontinued. This is literally the ONE makeup item I never go without and I get complimented on it constantly. I really hope you'll consider bringing it back. So upset about this.

    just tried to purchase "illuminating liquid foundation" and learned it was discontinued, so upset, best foundation have been using for years, why???

  6. Why is this discontinued??!!!!!

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    Is Stila aware that when you google "best foundation for dry skin" this foundation comes in as NUMBER ONE!!!!!!! What was the reasoning behind doing this? I'm so confused.

  7. Stila Illuminating Foundation

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    Please do not discontinue this item. I have been wearing this foundation for years. When I could no longer purchase it in Sephora stores or Ulta, I was afraid it was being discontinued. I started stocking up online, but also started shopping for other foundations and cannot find anything remotely close to this foundation. Please bring it back!

  8. Mistake

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    You are making a mistake in discontinuing the Illuminating make- up. It is perfect and I will no longer be a customer because of your poor decision.

  9. Need This

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    Tried this... loved it now not available??? What??? I've used a lot of high end foundation and love this! Pleas bring it back!

  10. Unbelievable

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    Horrors! Discontinuing the foundation I've used for years? Unacceptable. Don't like the new stuff, so I guess I will be defecting to another competitor. SUCH a bummer...

  11. Why!?

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    Please tell me you are planning on bringing the Illuminating foundation back!!! It's been my face for over 10 years. Everyone asks me what my foundation is and I have pointed many people to Stila Illuminating for years! Please someone from Stila tell us what is going on with this product.....!

    I used #2 purchased at Sapporo I would love to purchase one but can't figure which one it is by your chart. Help me please asi love your product.

  13. Please dont take my illuminating liquid!

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    This foundation is the only thing that saves my face every day. I'm a latina and the color match to my skin is perfection. The formula is perfection; better than Mercier and B. Brown. If you discontinue this, you will lose a long term customer!!!

  14. I can't believe you are doing this!

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    I am shocked to see that you are discontinuing a solid 5 star product. Everyone who tries this product is in love. I have purchased your new product, and that's the one you should retire. It does NOTHING that we love about the illuminating foundation. It's thick and pasty, and where's my illumination? Gone. Please rethink this move...

  15. OUTSTANDING!

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    This illuminating liquid foundation makes my skin absolutely glow. I lucked out in getting the perfect color (60 watts) when I purchased online and the flawless look is terrific. It is not a heavy coverage - I would call it light to medium coverage with one application over your moisturizer and primer. I let it dry for a few minutes then applied a second coat to get a bit more coverage so the product is buildable for denser coverage. I love, love, love the way it looks; so natural and yet covers the flaws. It doesn't get any better than this.

  16. BEST foundation ever

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    I've been using this for years. I've tried others from low end to high end and nothing compares to this foundation. Makes my skin perfect, light feeling, not heavy or cakey, just pure PERFECTION! Don't ever discontinue, I'd go into makeup mourning! LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!

  17. Please don't discontinue 20 Watts

    4.0 out of 5 stars

    I really like this foundation. I've been using it for a long time. I hope you're not discontinuing the 20 Watts Liquid Foundation. I'd hate to start looking for new foundation again.

  18. please dont discontinue!

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    please dont discontinue! i cant find 30 watts anywhere!! there's no other foundation out there like this. gives me such a young dew finish. i need it!!!

  19. Makes my skin look gorgeous

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    I was in the market for a new foundation. I've tried all the 'prestige' brands including Benefit, Urban Decay, "It" cosmetics, Tarte, etc. I fell in love with this foundation when the Stila rep put it on me. I was not expecting to like it that much. The best part is I have dry skin, and this foundation doesn't cling to pores or make my face look dryer. It brings a beautiful "glow" and feels light on my skin.

  20. This is the perfect foundation for me!

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    I have really dry skin and have tried numerous face cosmetics and lotions and potions to help with the dryness. I was sooo scared to try any foundations because I thought that they would accentuate the dryness under my eyes. Well, this one doesn't do that. It gives me a beautiful glow, and makes me look like I have perfect skin. I am half-way through my first bottle now, and am going to be getting another one very soon so that i don't run out of this wonderful stuff! LOOOVE it and PLEASE don't EVER discontinue it!!

  21. Best Foundation I have used yet!

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    This is my new favorite foundation. I have extremely dry skin and always had a problem finding a foundation that would either make my skin more dry or it would show the dry patches more. Until an associate at Sephora recommended this brand to me and i tried it and I'm in love with it. It is extrememly light weight feels like I have nothing on, for a foundation that has sheer to medium coverage it has excellent coverage and its buildiable so another plus and it does brighten your skin with a light glow. Anyone with extrememly dry skin and wants light foundation this is the way to go!

  22. Great coverage and flawless finish!

    4.0 out of 5 stars

    I've tried many foundations in the past and wasted A LOT of money trying to find the right one. THIS IS *THE* ONE! The 40 watt matches my Korean skin tone PERFECTLY (even when I tan during the summers# and I ALWAYS receive compliments on how great my skin looks! I have a lot of redness on my cheekbones and this, along with the 40 watt powder, covers it well enough without using any concealer. This foundation is great because a little of it goes a long way! And if you accidentally put too much on your face, it doesn‰Ûªt become cake-y!! It‰Ûªs great! I always carry this foundation and powder in my purse wherever I go, although re-application of the foundation isn‰Ûªt necessary throughout the day ‰ÛÒ only the powder I‰Ûªll reapply if I get shiny! One little con is that although they changed the look of the bottle to a black cap #which is great, because the silver-colored paint from the bottle pictured on the website would slowly flake off and would get stuck on my hands and face, and I would have to use my nail to scoop the flakes off), the formula of the foundation changed to a thicker and gloppier consistency, and it now has a more noticeable, slightly unfavorable smell to it than the previous bottles with the silver cap/pump. It still gives the great, even finish, though. Overall, great product, but if the new smell of the black capped bottled formula could be reduced back to the original formula, that would be greatly appreciated! Otherwise, it makes me feel like I‰Ûªve received an old bottle with stale liquid foundation.

  23. Good luminizer

    4.0 out of 5 stars

    While I love the fact that this is a luminizing foundation, it covers little more than a tinted moisturizer. I would say the coverage is between a tinted moisturizer and a foundation - so a light coverage foundation. Since I get breakouts and have dark circles I have to use a foundation over this and a concealer. However, I LOVE the way it makes my other foundation look! It lightens it up a but and keeps my face looking dewy. I purchased 40watts and I have light-medium skin tone, so in my opinion the colors run a bit light. Overall I would recommend to women who don't need more than light coverage, or, if you need more, for use under another foundation/concealer. A bit overpriced for the coverage, but good effect.

  24. Radiance in a Bottle

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    I was surprised that Stila had such wonderful foundation selections. I have a tricky skin tone and always have difficulty finding a color to match. I instantly fell in love with the illuminating foundation. It made my skin look so radiant and natural without looking like I put on a lot of makeup. I found out that Stila really focuses on beautiful, healthy looking skin and foundations. It really shows. I definitely recommend this for the woman who wants a smooth, dewy finish and a natural look.

  25. Great product

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    This illuminating foundation is light and makes a difference on my skin. I love it and highly recommend it. The product is cost effective too and a great value, as a little goes a long way, spreads on my face evenly. This product lasted longer (even with daily application) than any foundation I have ever used. I will definitely purchase this product again. Thanks, Stila, for the quality beauty products.

  26. 70 watts

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    I havent bought another foundation in about 2 yrs, since 1st trying this. It leaves your face looking flawless, not heavy at all, glowy. I love it.

  27. This product is absolute perfection!

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    If you are looking for something that makes your skin look vibrant, young, and energetic, this is the product! I absolutely love how this foundation makes me look and feel!! Would def recommend, you will NOT be let down!

  28. Amazing Coverage, Flawless Look

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    I absolutely love the Illuminating Liquid Foundation in 40 watts and 50 watts. I usually purchase both depending on the season when I need a little more (or less) color. This foundation is the best I have found and I've tried a TON! I love the coverage it gives, not too heavy but definitely hides certain areas. It leaves my face looking dewy and my face has a "glow" about it. Once you try this, you won't be purchasing any other foundation anytime soon!

  29. Best Foundation

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    This is the best foundation I have ever used. I cannot find anything better than this product. It is perfection in a bottle.

  30. Greatest Foundation

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    I've been using the foundation for many years. Its the best! I wouldn't think of changing to any others.

  31. Great product but a little pricey

    4.0 out of 5 stars

    Overall, I love this foundation. I use the lightest shade and the color is a perfect match. But I find that Stila's foundation colors are always a really great match- never too cool, never too warm. As part of the illuminating line, it does make your skin look radiant. And the coverage is great. Light on the skin but gives you a flawless look. My only problem is that it's a bit pricey for one ounce of makeup. A little does go a long way though so I guess if you break it down by how many months you get out of it, it's decent.

  32. This is my favourite foundation

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    This is my favourite foundation and my favourite product from Stila. The shade 20 watts is the best match to my asian skin tone that I found so far. What I like most is the tiny shimmer in it, it brightens my face. It doesn't cover very well though, but that's also what I like, it is so natural that no one can tell I wear foundation. The last but not least, I have dry skin, it moisturizes well too. This foundation meets every aspect of my needs.

  33. Feels great!

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    I am fairly sensitive when it comes to foundations. Many get itchy after awhile. After deciding to switch from my current foundation, I tried this. It was great! It really looked smooth and even on my face and it never got itchy!

  34. Love it!

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    I love the way this foundation gives my face a glow during the boring winter months. It also, has great coverage.

  35. Glowing!

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    Love this foundation- covers enough without being heavy or thick. Gives my skin a luminous glow. Use it every day!

  36. amazing foundation

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    I love this foundaiton! Its light weight, buildable and has a very soft shimmer. It doesn's snk in to my fine lines and doesn't have a fakey luminous shine. It gives a soft dewey appearance that I feel is more age-appropriate for me. It does a good job of evening out my skin ton

  37. Great for dry skin!

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    This is my FAVORITE foundation ever! The best! First off - this is one of the only foundations that actually matches my very fair Irish skin tone. Second, it's very moisturizing and works wonderfully for my also dry skin! It goes on light and is not heavy. Love love love!

  38. HG Status

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    Bought this in high school cause Britney Spears wore it at the music awards, haha, have been wearing it ever since (9 years). I've tried other foundations but this is the best. It's sheer enough to wear year round, yet buildable so that I can get a more full coverage when needed. This is definately my HG foundation.
