I've tried about 15 different foundations, at least. I've tried liquid, loose powder, pressed powder, etc. I don't usually wear face makeup, except for the occasional lipgloss. But every once in a while I like to have a "pretty day" and cover up the acne scars on my face, or dress up to go out. My forehead is significantly darker than the rest of my face, but you don't really notice it until I'm wearing foundation normally. Even other foundations that have been a very close match have never looked this natural. My boyfriend and roommates, at least, could always tell if I was wearing foundation before I found this one. I'm a big fan of the natural look, so that didn't sit very well with me. Even on times when I thought I'd found the right foundation that matched (which in the light, it usually did, and people would say it was fine), in pictures my face looked like it was a different color than the rest of my body. And I love my freckles, but want to cover my scars. So, needless to say, it's been a difficult run to find the right foundation for me. I have NONE of those problems with the Stila foundation! Although my scars still show through a bit (I have yet to go and get the matching concealer since i'm on a budget), I can see my freckles and it has good coverage. The only area where people can usually tell at all that I'm wearing foundation is around my lips if I forget to wear lotion and when I put blush on before the foundation has a few minutes to settle properly onto my skin. At last, the search is over!
