Fiona Stiles Soft Cheek Veil: Making Us Blush?

This is a blush I’ve been eyeing for a while. We’d always see each other in Ulta, make a little polite chit chat and go our separate ways. Each time I walked away, I wound up regretting it more than the last time. Finally, I had to go for it. No more holding back. Before we find out if I made a love connection let’s go over a few quick facts about the brand:

  1. The brand is the brainchild of celebrity makeup artist Fiona Stiles, hence the name.
  2. The brand is currently doing some “housekeeping”. Seems Ulta isn’t what they expected it to be. 
  3. The brand is currently exclusive to Ulta.

Now let’s get blushing like brides. I picked this up for $5.00. The regular price is $20.00.  Now the packaging is what first caught my eye. It may not look like much but it’s brilliant. It’s a deep navy chrome with a nice metal feel. There’s a magnetic latch making opening and closing it a breeze. 

I picked it up in the shade ‘Pomander Walk’ which is described as a bright peony. 

This is honestly the pinkest shade I have Ever attempetes to wear on my cheeks. It’s a beautifully bright pink.

*The Pink Print ๐Ÿ˜‚

It has a very nice feel to it. It feels very finely milled. It reminds me of a loose pigment somehow. 

I figured this wouldn’t be for me. I thought my skin tone and a pink this bright would not be friends at all. Luckily, it was love at first sight. This added a beautiful flush of color to my cheeks. Even though it seems really pigmented, it’s actually quite soft. It looks really natural.

*I hope this picture didn’t freak you out๐Ÿ™ƒ

I’m super happy with the outcome. It looks like I’ve found a new makeup soul mate. 

Take a look at my hand. Do I have a royal blush? ๐Ÿƒ

Until Next We Meet
