Stila Ulta Mate Set

Hello everyone! You know, one of my goals for the New Year is to blog 5-6 times a week. But obviously that's not happening as I'm still blogging my 3-4 times a week. Sorry for that. I'm just quite busy.

Anyway, I'd like to show you what I got from a pool order with Her Royal Bleakness: the Stila Ulta Mate Set.

This is really a value for money kit! It comes with an Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer, a  mini Convertible Color, a mini Lip Glaze, a mascara and four eyeshadows!

So here are the actual products:


 Here are the eyeshadows. Of course, they had to include their best-selling shade, Kitten. Wheat and Kitten are quite similar but Kitten is more pinkish gold than Wheat. Both of them would make good everyday eyeshadows for me. Golightly is a pigmented brown while Mystic is sort of an aquamarine color. These e/s have very good pigmentation, except for Mystic which is not as pigmented as the others.


So let's go the the other stuff on the kit. On the very top is the Convertible Color in Peony. This will work well underneath peachy-pink blushes like NARS Orgasm. Below that is the Lip Glaze in Ulta mate pink. It actually goes on very sheer but buildable. What surprised me the most is the Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer. When I read that it was Shade 01, I was worried that it would be very fair. Well, as you can see in the swatch, it's fair for me. However, when I blended it out, it disappeared on my skin! I think it will work well as a makeup base. Because once I blended it out, what was left was a dewy look and a slightly brighter face.

All-in-all, I give a thumbs up to this set! Yey Stila!
