Stila – All Over Shimmer Duo in Kitten
This post may contain affiliate links.
I’d been looking for a good shimmery highlighter powder for ages, so when I saw this All Over Shimmer Duo in Kitten from Stila I was smitten (plus I managed to get 20% OFF it from M&S on Bank Holiday weekend)!
I love Stila as a make-up brand, their products are always good quality (if a little pricey) and their packaging is simple, pretty and sturdy all at the same time. This little pocket-sized compact is no exception, the pearlised lid has cute little embossed stars on it.
All Over Shimmer Powder is marketed as a multi-use make-up item, it can be used as eyeshadow, cheek colour or highlighter – I love anything that can multi-task! Plus the mirror inside the lid means you can use it on-the-go.
The two shades in the compact complement each other nicely – the paler shade is a champagne cream and has just the right amount of shimmer, the darker shade is a gentle bronze. Both of the powders are micro-fine and apply smoothly to the skin.
You can apply the two shades separately to the skin, perhaps if contouring, using the paler one on the top of the cheekbones and the darker one underneath to add some definition – although this is quite difficult unless you use a small brush (the compact is only small and it’s difficult to sweep your brush over only one powder without picking up the other). Or you can swish your larger brush over both of the powders at once to pick up a shimmery gentle bronzing highlighter and use it all over the face or decolettage (upper chest area).
I absolutely LOVE the All Over Shimmer Duo from Stila, it’s definitely going to become my go-to highlighter compact. I love how the powders are so fine and just add a subtle glow to the skin, they’re not too overpowering. I like to keep an eye out on Stila’s website though to see when they’ve got special offers and discounts on, as I do find that they’re a bit expensive for some products.
