Stila has some great Christmas gift sets out at the moment, including eyeshadow palettes and lip gloss trios, but the one which my heart was set (haha) on was the Best of Kitten Set. I had just convinced myself that I didn’t really need it when Truworths sent me an email thanking me for my order (it was a request people, not an order per se) three weeks later and stating they had sent it to my nearest branch. This set costs R450 at Truworths and only R289 on Rubybox, so understandably I was a bit annoyed. Accounts are the devil.
Anyway, this set contains a full-sized kitten eyeshadow, a smudge stick in Angelfish, a lip glaze in kitten (gift-size) and an all over shimmer liquid luminizer in kitten, which all come in a champagne-gold Stila makeup bag. I was really glad to get a full-sized eyeshadow because this is one of my favourite eyeshadows of all time.
The main reason I wanted this set (considering I already have the eyeshadow and lip glaze in kitten) was for the all over shimmer liquid luminizer. We can’t get these in SA yet, and I love highlighters of any kind. I am going to do a proper blog post just on this soon, as it is a more affordable and wearable version of the Chanel sheer illuminating fluid. Suffice to say, if you can pick this set up for R289 on Rubybox then it is really good value and worth it, just for the all over shimmer and the eyeshadow. If you don’t have the lip glaze in kitten it is also a really useful nude-coloured gloss with some shimmer in it, perfect to wear alone or over other lipsticks.
