I, Dana from Darling Dee Dee love Valentine's Day! I feel like I am in an AA meeting where I have tto admit all my unhealthy obsessions. I know being in my later twenties I should have joined the, 'it's a hallmark holiday' bandwagon and 'Valentine's Day shouldn't be the only day you express your love', but I will always be a hopeless romantic. Internally, I'm still very much a fifteen year old that loves Nicholas Sparks books and cheesy Rom-Coms. However, one very grown up thing about this wonderful holiday is the annual release of Stila's Valentine's Day themed blush.
The first one I ever bought was 'Love at First Sight' in 2012 and I wore it every day, until I accidentally dropped it and I was heart broken, I didn't think I could ever love another blush the same way. That was until 2013 when'All You Need is Love' was released, it's a delightful mid-tone pink and I still use it 'til this day.
This year Stila released 'Pretty in Pink' and I'm just smitten. The packaging is the best it has ever been. Look at that shiny sliver! The design of the blush itself is so delicate and beautiful, I love the pale pink heart with a lace print around it. I formula is wonderful, there hasn't been a Valentine's Day blush which has disappointed. Stila has always been amazing at creating beautifully pigmented blushes that are blendable, buildable and affordable. This shade is best for light to medium skin tones, it's quite a pale pink. However, you can build it up for darker skin tones.
Do yourself a favour and give yourself a little Valentine's Day present! This blush is just darling.
