Stila grabs my heart again – Love at First Blush

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.

Stila Make Me Blush from 2011

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!!

Stila Love at First Blush

You can buy this alone for $14 or buy the Love at First Blush Set($20 at “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


  1. I really like the look of this one and have almost pulled the trigger several times but I wouldn’t wear the glosses.

  2. Oh I like this one too ?

  3. Cindy (myfuel) says:

    Same here, I agree with the other Cindy. I’ve been so tempted to purchase the set since it came out, but I’m not going to wear the glosses.

  4. That is just so pretty! It looks too pretty to use.

  5. I just need this… every time I see a post I drool and then cry because I don’t have it!

  6. This looks gorgeous and the set is a great deal!

  7. You can buy the blush alone for $14 which is drugstore price! It’s a gorgeous blush. I only bought the set so I could use the glosses in a giveaway. I didn’t need them but I know someone on the BIZ will love getting them.

  8. I really like this one. And the design won’t disappear like on last years.

  9. It’s rare to find this much for $20 at Sephora!

  10. Carol Schefman says:

    They really made this with you in mind, Marcia! Stila just needs to rename this as “The Marcia”blush!

  11. Someone understands! Thanks.

  12. That is gorgeous!!!

  13. Gorgeous!! I love beautiful blushes!

  14. Melissa Conlin says:

    These are soo cute! If anyone sees this still available can they please contact me.

  15. Unfortunately this is a year old. The new Stila blush with the LOVE on it is very pretty and only $14. If I didn’t have 6 million blushes I’d have bought it.
