The Illuminating Finishing Powder by Stila is about as subtle as a spot-light

19 Aug

This Illuminating Finishing Powder by Stila is about as subtle as a spot light and is probably best used as a high-lighter, rather than a finishing powder.

If you want glitter – and by ‘glitter’ I’m talking Christmas morning at the North Pole after Mrs Claus has had one too many sherries while decorating the tree – then you’ll love this.  Me, I prefer to keep the decorations for the holiday season on my Christmas tree rather than my face.

Maybe if I were dark skinned this product and all its glitter would look good, but I’m a pale-faced pixie living on the edge of the western world who has never has a real tan (lots of fake tans of course, I am Irish after all) and glitter on a chlorinated skin tone is not hot.

My advice, for what it’s worth – avoid.

    This made me laugh out loud – honestly – hilarious. I agree, it would probably look good on a tan.

    Brilliant! Lovin’ it. You need to post a pic of yourself wearing it. 🙂 Thanks for making me smile.

    I use the bronze in this product but you have to be very light with your touch and it really is only for night time.
