“ Brand: Stila / Type: Foundation „
I've always wanted to own something from Stila since I found out about the brand. Its the first blush I purchased at got it at about £13 from strawberrycosmetics.com, it is also available on e-bay and amazon and also the Stila website but for maybe a little more money! It is best to search around for the best deal.
The texture of the blush is somewhat like a very soft air whipped mousse. I apply it using my fingers since its the easiest way to spread it evenly. When I first applied it on my skin, it seemed thick and a bit too dark but after a quick blending with my fingers, the colour lightens and blends in very easily into my skin leaving a natural flush.
It goes on smoothly onto my skin without any colour streaking and the colour is fairly sheer and natural so I think Water Lily seems like a suitable shade for me as others like Sweet Pea might be too sheer on my skin.
I do feel that it is a little bit more on the oily side and it doesn't last as long as I would like. This can maybe be improved by using a finishing powder to hold it in place but I haven't tested it out yet since most of the time I just spread some on and go off to class! Also, don't be fooled by the small pot - a small amount goes a long long way! I've had this for 3 months and its half used.
The packaging of the blush is adorable. A cute glass pot with a metal screw top lid. The sticker on the lid has a flower pattern and 'Stila' written across the top. It is so girly and pretty and looks great in my make-up bag!
Overall, it is good for a blusher, could be better but the sheer colour is probably good for people who are new to makeup to prevent blush overloading!
