The Stila All Over Shimmer is new for summer. It is a liquid highlighter/blush in a bottle with a brush, kind of like nail polish. Rose Gold Shimmer is exactly what the name says, it is a beautiful rose gold highlighter. It looks mighty pigmented in the bottle and also swatched as a lump, but once it is blended out, the colour is more natural and quite beautiful.
The colour blends pretty easily and dries down to an almost wet powder, which is interesting.
A couple of downsides, I dislike the brush applicator because I don’t think it is very sanitary, I would have preferred a pump or squeeze dispenser. Also I found that once it is blended out, it feels a little bit gritty, as in there is some glitter.
Overall I think this is a nice blush/highlighter to have, but definitely not a must-have if you already have a highlighter you usually go with, due to the fact that there is some glittery feeling and also the packaging. It is still worth it to take a look if you happen to have a Stila counter near you.
The Stila All Over Shimmer is available now at your local Stila counter or on StilaCosmetics.com for $24. It comes in 4 different shades – Pink Shimmer, Bronze Shimmer, Rose Gold Shimmer and Kitten Shimmer.
