Stila - sure it would be rude not to

This is going to be my Boots thing from now on, any time I build up a few Boots points I will be spending it on Stila.  Here is what I picked up lately. 
I have been really intrigued by the idea of self adjusting cheek colour, half of me thinks that it is a complete marketing ploy for ejits like myself and the other half thinks... pretty colour me likey.  I have been waiting on Stilas Autumn collection to come in and the Self Adjusting Coral is part of the collection, of course I snapped it up. The other product is a smudge stick in Peacock.  These were both priced at €17.00 but I used the wonder of my Boots points. 

They are so pretty, look at the little stars on the eyeliner, the packaging on the blush is gorgeous as for the self adjusting aspect I think that perhaps its just like other blushes they look differently on different people.  I applied this to myself and it is a really pretty peachy coral, I applied it on my mam and it was a slightly lighter shade (but she is a little tanned) and to a friend in work.  I have to say I didn't notice a variation in colour at all.  I did ask my male colleague if I could try it on him but he wouldn't let me (boo hiss) I chased after him and everything in a Benny Hill style caper but still no go.  This is a really pretty colour so they don't need to tout it as being self adjusting or magical.

The Smudge stick is a beautiful colour it is soft and creamy it actually look a little like the Avon Glimmersticks Diamonds Eyeliner so if anybody has one of these let me know.
