Once upon a time I was a Stila addict…as in I’d an almost exclusively Stila make-up bag, and so was of course a little sad to see the brand leave Ireland a couple of years back. The good news is they’re back with a bang, and having gotten to try Stila One Step illuminate* I can feel another Stila love affair coming on strong!
This stuff is luminosity bottled. Ultra-cool packaging aside (it’s hypnotic if you stare at it long enough!) the oil free formula is perfect for those looking to control an oily t-zone. The serum-like consistency is composed of a triple whammy of illuminators with varying degrees of highlighting and bronzing magic. The hatric of illuminating and colour correcting primer includes a warming ‘Pale Pink’, the cult-status ‘Kitten’ tone to brighten (which by the way also happens to be my favourite eyeshadow possibly ever) and a ‘Champagne’ element to highlight the skin.
There’s also an impressive skincare element to this primer, which I love. The inclusion of Stila’s Youth Revival Bio-Available Mineral Complex controls oil, minimises pores, hydrates and improve’s the skins texture which is always a bonus. I don’t think a swatch below on naked skin does this one justice- it can appear both pinkish and a little on the sparkly side; which it is absolutely not the finished result when layered beneath your foundation.
Even if light-reflecting foundations aren’t your everyday thing, Stila One-Step Illuminate adds the most beautiful gentle glow that can be teamed up with any day-to-day base. I’m a big fan, especially after a late night and this will definitely be a new staple in my kit for grey days! Have you tried Stila’s One Step Illuminate?
*Stila One Step Illuminate is available from the Stila counter at Harvey Nichols Dundrum, priced €31.60
