Stila Love At First Blush Palette + Giveaway

I was in ULTA doing a bit of retail therapy and happened upon these new Stila Love At First Blush Palettes. Stila came out with a similar blush palette for Valentine's Day last year and I was definitely bummed when I missed out on it. This year, they are back though they haven't quite made their way onto the Sephora site which made me really excited to find them! I picked up one for me and one for you guys. If you don't care how the product swatches, then you can simply scroll down to the rafflecopter application and enter to win your very own.
The Stila Love At First Blush Palette comes housed in a sturdy plastic case and comes with 6.2 grams of product at a very reasonable price of $14. Inside is a light shimmery pink, a matte/satin brighter pink, and a shimmery hot pink. Honestly, I could do without the shimmer as it has a bit of glitter but it can easily buffed away.
These are the colors heavily swatched. They aren't super pigmented, the hot pink is the most pigmented of the bunch though it makes the product a lot more wearable and goof proof. I know a lot of people love pigmented blushes but sometimes, a slightly less pigmented product is easier to deal with, especially rushing around in the morning before a busy work day.
You can kind of see the colors swirled together on top but I think I got most of the lighter shimmer color in my swatch. You could definitely angle your brush more towards the hot pink to get more color.

I could do without the glitter to be honest, but otherwise, I think this is a nice treat, especially for the price and it is so adorable with the little raised heart design.

When I was little, my favorite holiday was Valentine's Day. I just loved giving out cards to the kids at school, dressing in my very stylish red heart dotted outfit and decorating cupcakes with little red hots. Oh how I miss those days before adulthood and responsibilities!

Now onto the giveaway...

One lucky Jeweled Thumb reader will win their very own Stila Love At First Blush Palette. Please fill out the Rafflecopter application below and be sure to follow the instructions. Good luck!

My favourite holiday is Christmas, which I celebrate by spending time with family, friends, and at church. Nothing terribly fancy!

I love shimmers and sparkles!
My favorite holiday is Halloween. It's All Hallows Eve (All Holy Evening/All Saints Eve), two days before All Souls, and a lot of it is actually based in Catholic tradition, and I'm Catholic. It's also a few days before my birthday, and at the time of the Renaissance Faire that I go to, where I play a faery. I usually celebrate it with either my family, watching Halloween family movies (Disney and the like) while passing out candy, or at the Renaissance Faire, where my friends and I play with the patrons and vendors, and dance around and cause mischief.

My favorite holiday is Christmas. It's the one season where my family members are able to get together and celebrate the holiday. My family and I go all out for Christmas dinner, we sometimes catered our foods, make homemade foods, or go to a buffet and after dinner we play countless games, watch movies, and go throw snowball at each other outside.

Christmas is my favorite holiday - being able to have some time off work & spend time with family. Time spent eating, playing games, laughing, going to a movie or watching @ home, eating some more. Snowball fights or building a snowman if weather permits!

Cat said...
