Quickie review.

I got a sample of Stila’s Stay all Day 10-in-1 HD bronzing Beauty Balm.

Pros-

  1. It is dark enough to have blended nicely. I could have worn it with just powder on top.
  2. The bronzing is not too sparkly.
  3. Nice light scent.
  4. Creamy without being greasy.
  5. Broad Spectrum SPF 30.

Cons-

  1. I have very oily skin and under my MUFE Mat Velvet I got a lot of oil break through.
  2. I lost coverage in a couple of spots.
  3. After about 5 hours of wear I had greasy spots which normally I don’t.

Overall-

If you have normal to combo skin it would probably be nice. This is not a good fit for paler people and might look odd if you are a more pink person.

This is good for medium brown to my shade and maybe darker. 

For people who want a little coverage and are brownish I think this would be beautiful on it’s own with some powder. I would not really recommend this for White folks unless you are tan or closer to olive skinned. I think it would show up quite orange and that’s not a good look.

Overall it’s okay. I would not pay 38 dollars for it because I feel like my skin is too oily for me to use this day to day. You can read about it here at Sephora.
