Stila Set & Illuminate Baked Powder Trio for Summer 2012

Tsk, tsk! We’ve warned you before Stila, we do not like Kitten brushed on our faces. Our eyes yes, not our faces. We might just fancy your new Stila Set & Illuminate Baked Powder Trio just not in the Kitten shade selection, deal?

Stila Set & Illuminate Baked Powder Trio is a new baked powder in a sleek cheese grater grinder/shaver compact.

The formula promises a sheer, lightweight baked setting powder adds an illuminating glow on your face that can be worn alone or over foundation.

The powder consists of three brightening powders with pearls and pigments, that work together to set and illuminate the skin. The pale pink shade warms the complexion, the champagne shade highlights the skin, and Kitten brightens and illuminates.

Shade Selections:

  • The Illuminators (pale pink/ kitten/ pale gold)
  • The Bronzers (kitten shimmer/ matte bronze/ bronze shimmer)
  • The Correctors (peach/ lavender/ green)

Ideally I’d probably try the correctors but avoid the shades with Kitten. I look like Saturday Night Fever when I wear Kitten on my face, it’s not pretty.

This is $34, is a paraben-free formula, and will be available shortly from Stila.

    Perhaps I’m the only one but a little kitten on my cheeks really doesn’t look like I stepped back into 1975. Maybe its that I use just a tad bit to give my skin a healthy glow.

    I just bought this yesterday and I’m quite on the fence about it. I got the correctors – I think it makes me look paler than normal but I can’t swear too it because I haven’t used it enough to tell.

    RIght now I have on the corrector primer thing, the perfecting concealer, and this powder. THey sold me concealor that I think is too light and I’ve ahd to reapply it 2 times already and I need more now – NOT good. My tarte stuff seems to last way longer, has SPF, and is a good color match. I”m going back today to exchange for a darker concealer and possibly the foundation but I have a feeling everything may be going back. My face feels a little grimey right now and i usually don’t get the oilies.
