Easy To Blend x Build
This serum was dewy + moist, but not overly shiny. It was easy to blend x build with my fingers. I made sure to let it sit on my skin once applied so the true color could show through. It spread so easily on my skin x made my face feel fresh. I especially loved the benefits of the built-in SPF + clean skin-caring ingredients.

I've Been Using This For Years

This Product Checks All My Boxes
Call me high maintenance, but I like the base for my makeup to be light, while still doing the job to even out my skin tone – this product checks all my boxes. I can see why this Super Serum is ILIA’s pride x joy. For how light the serum feels, I was surprised by how much ground it covered; all it took were three drops to cover my entire face. While it’s technically a serum, I would honestly use it as my foundation, especially in the hotter seasons.

A Little Goes a Long Way
I really enjoyed the lightweight feel + consistency of this product. As far as coverage goes, as a skin tint it does a great job of enhancing what your skin already has – a little goes a long way with this product. It blended well with my other products x provided a nice base to build off of!

Just The Right Amount Of Coverage
I have a ‘less is more’ mentality when it comes to cosmetics, so I was immediately intrigued that this skin tint contains skincare ingredients + sun protection. The serum gives good coverage while also feeling super lightweight on my skin. I love that there’s a way to find my shade online + it’s made with all clean ingredients.

Packed With All The Good Stuff
I always appreciate a multi-tasking product. This foundation is packed with the good stuff — SPF, squalene, and Hyaluronic Acid — covering all the bases for daily wear. It wears light x is free of that *seemingly* unavoidable SPF smell most of these products tend to carry with them.

Best Glow In The Game
The best glow in the game. I used the color match quiz + was really impressed with how well it blended into my natural skin tone. It feels super light – almost weightless – x the coverage is just right. Plus, something about a dropper feels so sophisticated to me… definitely a bonus.
