In July, I went to the Stila warehouse sale. I did a post on it. You can check out my haul if you like. I'm so glad I went because I got such a good deal! I thought they would only sell the discontinued products, but they actually sold products that are being sold. One of the products is the Stila Set & Illuminate Baked Powder Trio.
Product Review: Stila Set & Illuminate Baked Powder Trio
Where to purchase: Sephora, Ulta, and online at stilacosmetics.com
Price: $34 for 0.16 oz/ 4.5 g
Made in Italy
Description on the back: A new "twist" on setting powder, this 3-in-1 innovative baked powder brightens, highlights and warms the skin for a radiant complexion.
* light gold - highlights the skin
* pale pink - warms the complexion
* kitten - brightens and illuminates
Twist the shaver in a clockwise motion to release powder. Using a Stila #24 blush brush, lightly press brush into shaved powder and tap off any excess. To brighten and illuminate the face, apply a light dusting to the cheeks, nose and the center of the face. For an all-over luminous look, sweep onto neck and decolletage or all over the body. Can be used alone or over your favorite Stila foundation.
Before I talk about the product, let's talk about the packaging.
Since the compact is so bulky, there's a lot of space inside between the shaver to the mirror. Whenever I open the compact, I notice powder everywhere. It can get messy. Then again you can just use a brush to clean the powder and apply it onto your skin.
Now for what I thought about this product... I think it's cool to own. It also illuminates your face. If you're darker than myself, MAC foundation in NC30, I don't think it'll show up on you. I think this product is better for fair to medium skin tone. It gives off a glow but not overly noticeable. I like it's more on the natural side but not too natural that you do not notice it on you. I can't say if it lasted all day since I blotted my face like crazy these past couple of days from heat. It's insanely hot nowadays *sigh*! Even though I'm not 100% sure it last all day long, I can tell it's actually a decent product. In my opinion, it will last all day long if you have dry skin. If you're oily, I doubt it from my experience from sweat. I also like that the three colors are mixed to work together, warms and highlight at the same time.
* Stila; a brand I trust.
* Simple packaging.
* Comes with a mirror.
* Three in one; warms, highlights, brightens and illuminates.
* Shaves the product.
* Finely milled powder, velvety finish.
* Vitamin E and jojoba oils.
* Last all day if dry skin.
* Powder spreads inside the compact.
* Does not come in a variety.
Would repurchase: Yes, but I think it'll last me a long time.

I haven't been posting my nail swatches, because I feel that it's hard to see at times. If you disagree and you want my nail swatches, please tell me and I will continue. I decided I will do nail of the week (NOTW) so you can see the nail polishes, as well as, how it applies on my nails.
