I’ve written about Stila stuff before, I love their products and their packaging. I was impressed when I noticed the other month that TK Maxx were stocking little packs containing 3 products for £7.99, especially when I found out the Convertible Colour Cheek and Lip tint I got retailed for £16.99 on it’s own in Boots! So needless to say the fact they were selling Stila goods in the POUND SHOP had me a little bit excited.
The first thing I cracked open was the Jade Blossom Hair Refresher. The box to this is so cute in a nice dusky pink tone. The trademark Stila font dominates the front of the box with pretty little green flowers all over it. I was expecting the product to be a spray bottle but instead it was a bottle of fine powder which has the most lovely delicate floral scent to it. It seems to be a lot more effective than dry shampoo for de-greasing and volumising yet does leave a slightly more powdery residue at the same time. But then again, what can you expect when it’s a powder?!
The two face powders I literally bought for the sake of it. I knew neither would match my skin tone at all as they were both Shade D which is a slightly dark tone. I would say that maybe when I become a bronzed goddess in the summer I will be able to utilise them… But then I remember I live in England and erm, yeah…. Needn’t say more about that.
The first powder is a pretty standard powder foundation. The second one was called ‘angel light’ which says it’s a whitening powder. I was wondering what that was all about so after a quick google I have determined it’s aimed at mainly Asian and Korean markets who strive for that brighter and whiter western skin tone. I did think this may counteract the darkness of the colour but alas it didn’t and I still looked a bit like I’d gone mad with the bronzing balls or something after application.
