Stila 20th Anniversary Cheek Duo in Creamsicle

Did I need a new blusher? No. Did I need a new Bronzer? No. Did I get sucked in by the too cute for words packaging? I think we all know the answer to that one.

Seriously though, I don't think Stila could have made nicer packaging if they tried, I just love it and it's perfect for a pastel and cutesy magpie like myself! This cheek duo is a limited edition product from the ice cream collection to celebrate their 20th anniversary and as well as there being another shade of this there are three different eye shadow trios to choose from (I also don't need any more eye shadow either but Mocha Chip is calling out to that magpie side of mine!) and they're all housed in the same gorgeous paper compacts. Creamsicle is half bronzer and half blusher which is ideal travelwise because you've got all of your cheek needs in one little palette. The bronzer side has got the most use from me as I've found it to be the perfect contour shade even though in the swatches it looks a bit glittery and golden this doesn't transpire onto the skin at all once blended. I use the Real Techniques Duo Fibre Contour Brush to sweep it over the hollows of my cheeks and give this moon face the illusion of cheek bones. The blusher side is a peach pink and this hasn't got as much love as I thought it would have, the colour is lovely but I did find it to get a bit patchy as the day wore on but I'll definitely persevere, maybe now Autumn is on the way oily summer skin will be a thing of the past and my makeup will have an easier time staying on my face!

You might not need a new blusher or bronzer but you do need this packaging on your dressing table and it's limited edition so get yours quick before they're gone!
