I’m a sucker for anything pink but add a charity donation to Breast Cancer Research and it’s difficult to say no! I also love pink-based blushers and lip glosses, which are my staple makeup products for perking up the complexion, so when I saw this set on the Stila website in their Boxing Day Sale it was love at first sight and I snapped one up!
The colour of the pressed blusher this set contains is a lovely, bright pink. It’s a flat colour but the addition of the lighter, pearlescent pink ribbon motif mixes with it to give a slight shimmer which helps lift the blush. If you’re careful you can also use the two shades separately as a blush and highligher. The blush has a lovely velvety texture and can be built up depending on how much colour you like to wear.
The blusher still retails seperately for £12 on the website.
The Lip Glaze is a very sheer pink called Splendour. It’s quite glittery so it really catches the light but it doesn’t deposit a lot of colour on the lips. That’s fine if you like a more sheer gloss as I do, or if you prefer a deeper colour you can layer this over a lipstick and it gives a lovely shine. Lip Glazes can be bought for £15 and there are a whopping 36 shades to choose from!
I don’t recall how much this was in the sale, but I think the RRP was £13 so it was a bargain even at full price. It’s always worth checking on the Stila website around Christmas as they regularly have limited edition sets and palettes that are incredible value. They make lovely gifts or to keep for yourself!
