Exactly one year ago Stila produced a beautiful blush with hearts on it. I could not resist. I love anything with hearts on it therefore I fell for it even though the color really was too dark for me.
This year Stila apologized to me by bringing out a new blush with hearts in softer pinks; just for me!! They obviously knew that I couldn’t easily wear the first one and just bought it to admire it so they apparently wanted to appease me and make me buy more. Thank you Stila for thinking so highly of me!
Here it is!!
You can buy this alone for $14 or buy the Love at First Blush Set($20 at sephora.com). “Embossed with hearts in three ultra-wearable shades of pink, this microfine powder has a velvety smooth finish and subtle shimmer for a natural looking blush. A duo of deluxe-size Lip Glaze shades add high shine and understated color to complete your look.”
I couldn’t resist the bargain of the set to get 2 glosses for only an extra $6. The colors are Bubble Gum and Pinkle Twinkle. (These glosses will end up in a Beauty Info Zone contest soon.)
It was the blush I craved. The blush consists of three shades. Towards the top is a pink/lilac shimmer, middle is a matte warm toned pink while the bottom is a darker more rosy shimmer.
I personally start my brush in the middle and then lightly sweep it over the two shimmer shades. I don’t normally pick shimmers for my blush so I’m careful not to overdo the top and bottom. When blended together these three shades give me a very natural pink cheek.
I’ve already put in my order with Stila for the 2013 version. They know that the Marcia Museum of Hearts needs to be added to each and every year. — Marcia
