The Advice Sisters snagged a Powder Blush and an Illuminating Powder. The compacts are simple and black, with clear flip top lids so you can see the products within. The blush is a medium true pink embossed with radiating stars, and sprinkled with a bit of silvery sparkle (but not so much that you couldn’t wear it, daytime). The color is fairly intense, but is goes on smoothly and can be blended out to a natural flush, or layered for intensity that works on every skin tone. Fabulous! The Stila Illuminating Powder is a soft shimmery gold, the pan of pressed powder also embossed with a set of radiating stars. It looked almost too pretty to mess up with a brush, but once I lightly dusted some of this glow on my cheekbones, I felt a lot more glamorous. Use a tiny bit (it goes a long way), or add more and glitz with more intensity, wherever you want it. Try dotting a tiny bit on your bottom lip to enhance a pout, or dot some mid-lid with an earthy or nude eye look.
