Stila One Step Makeup Review

By  |  14 Comments

So this isn’t really a first impressions video considering I tried it before I filmed the video, but oh well. :) REALLY loving this product, especially for those “OMG I have literally 2 seconds to get ready!!” moments.


I had a few people asking questions about this that I forgot to put into the video, so here are a few extra things to add:

  • The feel of this reminds me a lot of MAC’s Studio Sculpt foundation in that it’s super thick, almost like a gel.
  • According to Stila’s website:
  • this is made from 100% mineral pigments
  • paraben and fragrance free
  • is great for all skin types.

I was asked to do a video applying it, but really it just applies like any other liquid foundation, the difference is it combines all aspects of a foundation routine (except moisturizer and sunscreen, but I put those in skincare over makeup (but theyre important!!)) It sets to a silky powder finish rather quickly, which rarely happens with foundations.

This is available from Stila’s website or Sephora and is sold for $44. Yes, I agree it is expensive, but if you want to use it instead of a primer, concealer, foundation, and powder, it saves you both money and time. :)

    I got a sample of this from Sephora and I’ve been waiting to use it. Now I definitely have to try it but does it sweat off?

      Sally, I think it goes for $19.99 on all cosmetics wholesale, if they’ve got your shade I’d say its a pretty sweet bargain.

    First, let me say I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product. And thank you so so so so so much for bringing it to my attention. If they ever stop selling this I might die ahaha D: not funny.
    Second, what brush are you using? I mean the brand.

    Very good blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?

    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a
    little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a
    free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There
    are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused ..
    Any ideas? Kudos!
