It’s unlikely you’ve met a primer quite like this Stila offering. From the swirled, helix distribution system to the fusion of three radiance-enhancing bronzing lotions, this illuminating face base has something for everyone. One pump of this do-it-all face base solves a multitude of skin issues - fatigue, shine and imperfections fade into the background, leaving a radiant, balanced complexion behind.

It glides on beautifully post-cleansing and instantly preps skin for makeup (although you’ll be looking pretty bushy tailed pre-foundation thanks to its lit-from-within powers).

Not only does it keep you looking fresh and pretty damn fantastic all day, but added goodies such as hyalauronic acid, vitamin E and bio-available minerals ensure that there’s skin nourishment on tap. You’ll wonder what you did without it.
