I’m in lust with Stila’s newest lip and cheek stain Cherry Crush! I’m about to give a raving review to you for this new product! Yay!
Ok, before I rave I have to rant as that’s the proper order of the day for the Muse! This is a multitasking product that you can use to stain your lips or your cheeks which is where my rant comes into play! The idea of using this on my lips and then smoothing it on my cheeks and vice versa totally grosses me out. Sorry but it’s just not entirely hygienic to use it on my lips and then proceed to put it on my face. Easy enough would be purchasing two, one for your face and one for your lips! I plan on doing just that but it’s somewhat expensive at $24 USD. That’s my only minor rant now I can rave!
This comes in a click style pen so basically you’re clicking for the color! I’m not particularly a big fan of click pens as I always find they distribute way too much product at one time. Anyway! When I got this I proceeded to click and swiped the color from the brush onto my fingertips to use on my cheeks and I’m happy to report this is very deeply pigmented so it gives your cheeks a lovely flush of color! The texture is a moisturizing gel! It slides onto your face easy enough, rub it in, and you’re instantly blushing! Beautiful!
The remaining of the time I’ve been using this I’ve avoided using it on my face as the brush included on the end of the pen has been touching my lips way too often so as I said I’m utterly freaked to use it on my skin now! I’m a big fan of staining my lips and cheeks prior to blush and gloss so this is a great product for me! Again, it’s just as pigmented on your lips as it is on your cheeks! I’ve heard many rants about how stains cause dry lips, I’ve personally never had that problem but with this you can safely avoid dry lips as the formula is very moisturizing and lovely! It not only stains your lips but it also has a knack for making your lips look fuller and glossy! The stain is not overdone in anyway and it gives just enough color to make it look quite natural on and not clowny. The color is a subdued red so it looks as if you bit your lips or have just been kissed. My lips are rather dull and pale without gloss or stain so this is a great solution for me during the day when I’ve bitten off my gloss and lipcolor! Pop it out, swipe it on, beautiful!
Overall, it’s a really cute product! I’m slightly disappointed that it’s not entirely multitasking as I had hope for because I seriously doubt anal folks will be swiping this on their lips and proceeding to do so on their cheeks but aside from that and the slightly high price tag it’s great! Plus it contains a slew of “good for you” ingredients such as Vitamins A, C and E and did I mention it smells and tastes so yummie!? It smells like crushed cherries and tastes just as sweet!
Stila’s Cherry Crush gets a big RAVE for purchase! I’m loving it and it’s most definately Muse Approved for purchase!

I have a mixed review for the Stila Illuminating Finishing Powder for you! I’m currently having a love/hate relationship with these.
The texture is lovely. They are made up of a very fine shimmering powder that glides on your face near perfectly. If you try these on the back of your hand you get a rather gorgeous shimmering effect but sadly that doesn’t apply to your face. Upon applying to your face the shimmer is barely noticeable which is somewhat disappointing. It does however create a rather subtle glow on your face.
The great thing is wearing these on a clean bare face works some kind of magic. I tried it and it gave me a beautiful highlight and it really helped with the shadows and dullness my skin sometimes has.
I haven’t yet tried it but these would probably make a great base for your eyeshadow as well or on their own as an eyeshadow and they are truly beautiful shades!
I’m not entirely sure why I’m not completely in love with them as of yet. I think some of it stems from the fact that they appear so much more beautiful and shimmery on the back of my hand but the same effect doesn’t apply when I use it on my face! However, I have read it all depends on what brush you use when applying these so hopefully with a little patience I’ll find the perfect brush to use!
Overall, they are really pretty powders! Not nearly as good as MAC Mineralized Skinfinishes but not bad either.
At $32 USD per a powder these aren’t cheap sadly however they do have the potential to be great! I’m just testing the waters at the moment so I’m caught between loving and hating them!
The packaging is excellent on these in my opinion. It’s a hard aluminum case with an easy pop off lid! It’s quite simple yet cute!
I can’t yet give these a Muse approval for purchase but I am slowly falling in love with them!
Tell your Muse!
Stila’s Spring Collection is in the air! The collection includes one blush duo and three eyeshadow trios. All are repromotes aside from a new shade in one of the eyeshadow trios. To be honest all the trios look brand new to my eye especially gold glow.
It’s a very nice collection but not prominent on my Spring Collection Wish List!
Cheek Duo in Pink Glow
Eyeshadow Trio in Gold Glow
Eyeshadow Trio in Bronze Glow
Eyeshadow Trio in Champagne Glow (Newest Shade)
I happened to plop this in my cart when shopping for Benefit Throb powder.
Meet Cherry Crush, a brand new lip and cheek stain from Stila:
I’m always on the lip and cheek stain bandwagon and this would be no exception as it looks pretty great. Expect a review shortly when I get mine but for now I will say it’s looking rather nice!
It’s $24 which is a bit much but I’m hoping this turns into the perfect natural red flush for my lips and cheeks!
I know I do! Can’t wait to get my hands on it!
