Greetings to all IMBB beauties!!
This post is about a product I bought on an impulse and was very fun to use because it is not just an ordinary face balm or a tinted moisturizer, it is an amalgam of a BB cream, sun screen, face illuminator; and also claims to have skin enhancing properties. Keep reading to know more about it.
- Multipurpose beauty balm to produce a youthful-looking, radiant complexion.
- Features SPF 30 sun protection.
- Comes in one universal shade.
Lighten up! Add a touch of illumination with this revolutionary, oil-free formula that uses the smallest particle of coated pigments for seamless, smooth coverage.

My Take on Stila Stay All Day 10-In-One HD Illuminating Beauty Balm:
It is hard to find a makeup product which has beneficial properties and goodness of several products in one tube and hence eliminates the chore of applying one product on top of another – this is one such product which is for the people who hate to layer products on their face or have no time to go through the rigorous process every morning.
Packaging: The lotion comes in a tube-like packaging which is bronze pink in color and has a shiny black cap. The front of the tube tells the full name of the product and the back side tells how to use it and what it does in full detail.
Texture: It is thick in consistency like a foundation; however, easier to blend and feels very light on the face and neck. It does not leave a cakey layer on the face and feels very light.
Fragrance: It has a very mild fragrance like most foundations and face creams, but there is nothing proprietary about it, neither do I expect it to be.
Coverage: It does not offer coverage nor does it claim to do so. It is meant to prep the skin for foundation or a tinted moisturizer, but I felt that it can be used as it is if one does not have lot of skin issues and just need some shine and glam to face.
Staying Power: I wear it during full office hours and it stays intact and by that mean my face still has the same dewy finish I get as soon as I apply this product to face; however, the zone does get a bit too shiny, but nothing I can fix with some matte powder.
This is a good cream which is not harsh on my skin, has SPF, preps my skin for foundation, can be used as is, gives dewy finish, and most of all it suits all types of skin tones and types.
Pros of Stila Stay All Day 10-In-One HD Illuminating Beauty Balm:
- Product comes in a travel-friendly tube.
- SPF 30.
- Blends easily.
- Does not feel greasy.
- Lightweight on skin.
- Acts as a good primer.
- Small quantity is enough for large areas.
- Good under flash photography as well.
Cons of Stila Stay All Day 10-In-One HD Illuminating Beauty Balm:
- One has to be careful while applying as they can easily go over board.
- Gives no coverage and cannot be used as a BB cream.
- Bit expensive.
Would I Repurchase Stila Stay All Day 10-In-One HD Illuminating Beauty Balm?
Maybe not, because I would like to try out such strobe creams from other brands as well but this product is still worth a try and would enhance the look a bit more.
