I am light-Medium toned and was disappointed that online they only had the Ivory 01 color. I tried it anyway...and it works! I thought I'd exchange it in the store, and sampled some of the Beige but actually like the Ivory better. So if you are fairer than Medium the 01 Ivory will be perfect. It really is not a heavy tint and will not change your skin color like foundation....it just gives a light natural glow.

It really depends on your skin tone. I am fairly light, so I go with the 01, but when I wear it in the summer, when I've gotten some sun, it still works well and helps to even out my skin tone. I hope this helps!

I have hazel eyes and medium light complexion with pink undertones. I chose shade 02 which is the light beige and it seems to complement my skin rather than contrast with it. I think if it's too dark you could use a lighter shade of loose powder to set it. I recommend Make Up For Ever's micro powder which is colorless. It helped with the shinyness too.

I use the ivory on my fair-to-light skin and it's great; very forgiving. I think beige would be better for medium to olive skin tones.

Question
Extremely fair skin. Will Shade 1 be light enough?
I'm very fair, and often have trouble finding shades to match my skin. Since there are only two shades of this product, I'm not certain it will work on me.
Have any other super-pale ladies given this a shot?

I am more light-med to Medium toned, and I bought the 01 - it is just fine! This does not have a heavy tint, so don't expect it to cover blemishes or noticeable redness or uneven tone. But if your skin is good, it will give it a healthy glow without having to wear makeup. If you need coverage, I would use a foundation, concealer, or heavier tinted moisturizer (I like Tarte Smooth Operator or Origins VitaZing) then maybe finish up with this Stilla for an extra glow if needed. 01 should be perfect for fair skin.

I am *not* super pale and shade 01 works for me. I have a combination of yellow undertones and a slightly flushed appearance when my skin is dry (which is a lot...sigh...) and this works for me. I say try it...you can always return it!

I have fairly light skin too and I noticed you have to be very very careful to mix this in and check that it hasn't left any lines. You should be ok with the fair shade, but be aware it may leave lines if you're not careful

I am super fair and shade 1 is perfect for me as long as I don't apply too much. If your goal is to get some actual coverage from the product, as opposed to a hint of color and a glow, there is a possibility that it will be too dark.

I started out with Origins VitaZing spf 15. It blends to virtually any skintone and has light coverage with illumination. I got compliments from strangers! Then I discovered Tarte Smooth Operator - it also blends with any skin tone but has a lighter coverage than Origins. It has become my go-to. It has Amazonian Clay in it which is healthy for your skin and keeps it even-toned - not oily in spots. I've noticed now when I switch back to Origins the VitaZing feels heavier and tingles a little, but it's good if you have small blemishes or uneven color and need a touch more coverage. My latest love is Stilla Illuminating Tinted Moisurizer - it is very lightweight and silky. It doesn't really cover, but I like to use it as a highlighter over any other foundation or tinted moisturizer - it adds a very nice glow as a finishing touch. If you don't need coverage or don't have noticeable uneven color to conceal, Tarte or Stilla would be my suggestion.

I would definitely recommend the Stila Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer. It's a wonderful product, and I would recommend it to anyone. The person who recommended it to me is in her mid-fifties and it works great for her. Of course, not all skin tones and types are the same, so you should try it out at the store first. It's always difficult to find good products, but I think this is definitely worth the price. It is around $32 a bottle, but it lasts me about 3 months, and I use it everyday.

I bought this online based on several "glowing" reviews. I have a medium complexion with some rosiness on my cheeks and chin. I thought this product woul tone that down. Instead it added a glow to my skin and emphasized what I was trying to downplay. I'm 59 with salf and pepper hair, hazel eyes, and while the shade was good it was too slick for me. I recommend you try Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 15 sunscreen. It's pricey but has great coverage. I use Light Beige.

Not sure I would say this is a tinted moisturizer, because it's so sheer it really doesn't give much color, it's more of just a glow.

Get the Ivory 01. I am closer to Medium skin tone and the 01 works great. It really is not a a heavy tint, it's more of a light glow - I use it as a finishing touch over foundation or heavier-tinted moisturizer to add extra brightness. It won't cover, and it won't alter your skintone like foundation would.

I think it depends on your skins undertones. The 02 is a bit pink. I like the 01 which is more neutral.

With your skin tone either the TM#1 or TM#2 would do fine. Use the TM#1 for a 'no color' effect or the TM#2 for just a lift. If you tan or are any darker than lt-med it will be too light for you unless used as a highlighter of sorts.

1.7 oz (50ml) This will last you into the next century! Such a tiny amount goes a long way, it is so light and silky. It does not "cover" if you have blemishes or uneven tone, but does give anice overall natural glow that diffuses the light so effortlessly that it camoflauges wrinkles or uneven tone. I will sometimes use a heavier tint or even foundation on 'bad skin days' but always finish off with a touch of Stilla for natural glow.

Question
Active ingredients - mineral sunscreen?
Could someone please tell me what the sunscreen is in this reformulated version, directly from the box or tube? The old version (SPF 15) contained chemical sunscreens, but I thought the new version contained titanium dioxide and zinc oxide instead. I received a sample of the new version and thought that is what it said, but I used up the sample and dont have it anymore. The Stila website might have an old ingredient list since it still lists chemical sunscreens, but if you have a tube, could you please confirm that it indeed has changed to titanium and zinc? Thanks!!!

The full-size product and the sample have different sunscreen ingredients, for some reason. They are both SPF 20 and the sample contains Titanium Dioxide 5.0% and Zinc Oxide 5.0%. The full-size product contains Octinoxate 7.0% and Oxybenzone 3.0%. The shades differ between sample and full size too, even if it is labelled as the same shade.

The only 2 active ingredients (both listed as sunscreen) are something called Octinoxate 7% and Oxybenzone 3%. At the bottom of the inactive ingredients list it says it MAY contain mica, titanium dioxide and/or iron oxide. Hope this info helps you.

I'm reading of the tube, which I just got about 2 weeks ago, so I guess its the latest one? and the active ingrediants (suncreen) are Octinoxate 7% and Oxybenzone 3%.
After the list of ingrediants it adds that it may include mica, titanium dioxide, and iron oxides?
Hope that helps!

Hi. I just tested this moisturizer on the weekend. The Illuminating is different from the original Sheer Color SPF15. The Illuminating has shimmer-very pretty if you like sparkle-it does catch the light. I can't comment on the formula further because I stopped testing when I noticed the shimmer. The tube is soft (original had harder plastic), seems very packable, and sundress-worthy especially with the illuminating texture. Hope this helps.
