I was in the grocery store yesterday and there was a whole, giant display of those shitty soft, frosted cookies. You know the ones, nobody knows what they are made of and they are usually slathered in an inch of neon frosting. I find that people either really love these cookies or they really hate them, there is no middle ground. I don’t love them, I think that the frosting always tastes like soap but I think that there should be a flavoured coffee that is Shitty, Soft Frosted Cookie flavour. I think that could work, or Birthday Cake flavoured coffee – I would try that. I don’t add sugar to my coffee so I enjoy flavoured coffees, nutty caramel is currently my favourite.
Not terribly long ago I was seeing this putty highlighter all over social media and for some reason I was convinced that I needed the putty highlighter. All other highlighters paled in comparison to this new, cutting edge, putty highlighter. Well, it turned out, I already owned this putty highlighter and just never noticed its puttiness (I am playing a drinking game using putty or derivatives of the word). Maybe it is because I never crammed my finger into the pan – when did everyone start manhandling their makeup? I own two pans of stila Heaven’s Hue Highlighter and I don’t know if mine is old but it just feels like super, soft powder to me – it isn’t bouncy and has no putty-esque quality to it. I do still really enjoy these highlighters, I own Kitten and Transcendence, both shades are equally lovely. Kitten looks very pink in the pan but does not impart any colour to my face, it just provides a soft, subtle glow. Transcendence does have a little colour to it, this is not the deepest shade but is a touch too dark for me – I can wear it with a really light hand. These powders are very soft and fairly easy to work with, I have run into some issues with applying too much and ending up with a wet looking streak on my face. I love the formula, I am not as crazy about the packaging as it is a tad clunky. I like the gold packaging that stila has but I think they could have slimmed this compact down a tad. The compact does include a nice mirror but I can’t say that I would travel with this.
The cost is comparable to other high-end brands at $32 each which I do think is pretty spendy for a product that I don’t use everyday or very much of. There are three total shades, their is a bronzier pan that is apparently just called Bronze (kudos to that creative team). stila is also officially cruelty free again which was one of the reasons that I had decided to splurge and try a few of their products and picked these highlighters up in the first place. Overall, I really enjoy them!
Thanks for stopping by <3
P.S. These cookies, didn’t think that was coming full circle – did you? Poll – do you love them or hate them?
