Some girls don't like it because it feels too oily but I have oily skin and it didn't feel oily at all an my skin!Also I have sensitive skin and I'm allergic to many foundations,like MAC,but with this foundation I didn't have any allergic reaction!!
Sounds interesting.. Is it new? Maybe Trisha might have some info for you Liz!

it has similar cover to a TM and is really meant for dry skin but if its work for your skintype and you are not dry then fab!

it has an SPF and the "ink" pad is antibacterial.

Very quick and easy to apply x


pivotal skin

A multi-use formula that gives sheer coverage and protection of spf 8 in one sweep. Minimizes pores and reveals an inherent dewiness with a finish so complete that powder is unnecessary. Touch and sweep on fresh, youthful skin.


Touch sponge pad gently and apply with fingertips, working with a small amount of product to keep it sheer. Over application defeats the luminous quality of pivotal skin.

Really Trisha?Pivotal Skin is only for dry skins?I have combo to oily skin and when I used it it didn't fell greasy at all!!Can you explain that?

If it works for you then its cool, you should get it! The only reason i cant wear TM's or Pivotal is cos i get stressed at work and get even more oily¬ x
I know what you mean!When I get stressed I get more oily too! What Stila's foundation is better for oily skins? What you wear for your oily skin?

The best ones we currently do for very oily skin are the powder fndt's, Illuminating Powder and Smooth Skin. x
Oh it's going to release a new foundation stick and a concealer?The concealer will be stick or cream?

That's good news!!I think I will love this concealer because I have a huge problem with dark undereye circles!!
what is the difference between the illuminating liquid foundation and just the liquid foundation?
