Whether you get into Valentine’s Day or not, you have to admit that every year one company or another comes out with something super cute and heart-related around this time. Last year it was Stila with the Make Me Blush palette (see that here) and this year I think the award goes to Stila yet again.

Isn’t she adorable?! Last year’s version had gold over spray hearts and leaned much more coral. This version is a definite pink and while it doesn’t have an over spray, two of the layers contain shimmer. If you don’t care for shimmer in your blush than this isn’t for you.

The outside of the palette also has a cute little ‘xoxo’ from Stila. I think it’s a nice touch, actually. It makes the palette so appropriate for Valentine’s Day.

You can see the definite shimmer here. It’s a nice medium pink shade, not too light or too dark. Bright enough to welcome spring, and warm enough to be flattering on most skin tones. The powder is smooth and easy to blend.

I think this palette would be a nice little treat for yourself or for a friend this Valentine’s Day. It’s budget friendly at only $14 and can be found on Sephora, Beauty.com, Nordstrom and Macy’s. It’s worth it for the cute factor alone, right? But the powder itself makes it oh-so-easy to give in to.

Have you spotted any other cute Valentine-themed makeup items?

  2. Pretty!! I’ve only tried Stila Cream blushers ever, never a powder one. Maybe after the blush ban!

    What a perfect treat for valentine’s day— the color is really the color I’d imagine pink hearts to be. I’m sorely tempted <3

    I love the look of the blush but I think it’s a bit pink for me. I tried one from the latest mac collection but wasnt brave enough. I stuck with the MSF’S instead.

    I hadn’t really noticed before but your cheekbones are really nuts, Danielle! I’ll just pretend it’s because of this blush and that I can get your cheekbones with it ;)

  6. I like the colour, and it looks great on you… but glittery hearts on a blusher is pushing it a bit too far for me! Will wait for them to release it in a more subdued version!
