Stila One Step Makeup

The newest addition to my morning makeup militia is a product that is as easy to use as it is effective. Say hello to Stila's newest, One Step Makeup.

 

One Step makeup is the be all, end all foundation for us busy gals on the go. One Step is a primer, foundation, concealer and powder in one, that smooths pores, controls oil, covers up imperfections, and lasts all the live long day. The texture is that of a thick gel, which once applied dries down to a smooth, silky satin finish. 
  

Waking up with only 10 minutes to go from dead to presentable, it is nice to have a product that incorporates several steps into one easy process.  I found the coverage on this to be light to medium, which is just right for me on a day to day basis. I simply apply it post spf moisturizer, and I am set on coverage from sunup to sundown.

My only complaints? My true shade (fair) washes me out a bit, though to be fair (hehe, get it?), I am pretty ghostly pale to begin with. I also wish this had SPF built in, because I am just that lazy. All in all, One Step gets a big thumbs up from me.

Swatched: fair, unblended:
  

Blended into my skin, this is what it looks like:
  

Notice the satin finish, minimized pores, and silky smooth appearance to my skin? Beautiful, da? Stila One Step delivers the pretties, and gains points for being quick and easy too.

How do you like this compared to the Dior Airflash foundation...

They definitely need to broaden their color range. None of the colors would come even remotely close to my skin tone and I'm not even that dark! :(

I wasnt sure how well it would blend down from looking at the unblended swatch, but it looks amazing :) very natural

Krista, I feel like the coverage isn't quite the same, with the Dior giving me more of an airbrushed, flawless appearance. One Step appeals to me on low maintenance days.

Glamourandlove, very true. I am sure that more colors will come with time.

J-ezzy, it is great for those days when you just need to get up and out. Definitely check it out and let me know what you think. :)

Krasey Beauty said...

Silhouette, it is definitely very blendable, and very buildable. :)
