Is there anything more exciting than a new line at Sephora?

STELLAR is a relatively new brand at Sephora known for the Limitless Foundation, a product specifically designed to cater to people with medium and tan skin. Today I'll be reviewing the Limitless Foundation and the matching Limitless Concealer.

Wrapped in sleek, modern packaging with a reasonable price.

The Limitless Foundation is $38 for 1 fluid ounce which is on the average to below average price range at Sephora. The bottle does have a pump and the packaging reminds me of a more modern Nars. The bottle is plastic and, although this choice limits the luxuriousness of the product, it keeps it relatively lightweight and probably reduces the cost. The concealer is $27 for 0.2 fluid ounces and has a traditional doe foot applicator.

Products in a rainbow of medium and tan shades.

The foundation and comes in 22 shades and the concealer comes in five. To be honest I think that the shades names and online swatches are very misleading. If you are thinking of purchasing STELLAR's complexion products try to swatch them in store first, or, do as much Googling as possible before ordering.

But some people just don't appreaciate that sort of thing.

There's a lot of shade (no pun intended) being thrown at the Limitless Foundation and Limitless Concealer for not coming in a wide variety of shades. It seems like there are some people with fair and light skin tones that don't appreciate the lack of shades curated for them. If you fall in this camp, then you're missing the point of the entire line. The line has been specifically formulated for people with medium and tan skin tones with more difficult to find yellow, golden, and olive undertones. And that's that.

They're cruelty-free in the best way...

Both the Limitless Foundation and Limitless Concealer are cruelty free and vegan, which is great. In fact the vast majority of STELLAR's line is vegan.

... but are hella synthetic.

The STELLAR line does not in any way claim to be natural or organic, so I'm not going to hold them up to the same standard as I would products from green beauty lines. They products don't have sulfates, phthalates, parabens, or fragrance, which is great. But what they do have is an astonishing variety of silicones. If you prefer majority natural products or simplified ingredient decks, these are not for you.

The foundation is a solid choice for those with hard to match shades.

The Limitless Foundation formula is not revolutionary. But it has a natural finish and buildable coverage that when applied with a Beauty Blender provides the perfect canvas for the rest of your look.

However the concealer is everything I've been searching for.

I’ve only had the Limitless Concealer for a few weeks now, but I'm going to make a bold statement - this is the best cruelty-free concealer I've ever used. It's smooth, pigmented, and most importantly it doesn't crease at all in my very problematic under eye area. If you can find your shade I highly suggest picking it up.
