New month, new foundation! How 'bout one from Stila Yves Saint Laurent or Benefit?!

Stila Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer - $57 - in 16 shades: Bare 1, Fair 2, Light 3, Beige 4, Hue 5, Tone 6, Buff 7, Honey 8, Medium 9, Caramel 10, Dark 11, Tan 12, Warm 13, Maple 14, Deep 15, Cocoa 16 - it's a high-definition foundation that provides a matte, flawless finish without feeling heavy on the skin. The oil-free, oxygenating formula contains an exclusive combination of botanical extracts that have been shown to enhance blood flow and circulation in the capillaries of the skin as well as help to slow the onset of premature aging and promote a healthy, hydrated and vibrant collection, while a unique silicone elastomer gives the product a natural, skin-like texture that glides on effortlessly, immediately minimizing imperfections with buildable, breathable coverage that will last all day!

What I think is clever is the creamy, full coverage concealer hidden inside the foundation's cap as well as a mini mirror for touch-ups on the go! The easy-to-blend concealer contains Vitamins A & C to provide antioxidant benefits as well as Vitamin E to help prevent premature aging and instantly hides blemishes, dark circles and age spots to create an impeccable canvas.

As an added bonus the kit comes with a professionally-inspired spatula and brush for expect application.
