--What does the promo say?--
"Give cheeks that wind-blown, barely-there flush, anytime of year, with this sheer gel stick. The formula is gel-based and oil-free so it hydrates skin while acting as a protective barrier to the elements. Uncomplicated and easy to apply and blend."

Small and perfectly formed. It's a plastic see-through squarish canister with the Stila logo and product information printed on in black, with a silvery lid and base. The silvery base has a click wheel that you use to push the blush up and down, and it's always nice to be able to see the product through the packaging.

As promised, all very uncomplicated. Pull off the lid, twist the click wheel to push up the blusher, and apply straight to the cheeks (or, for a unified look, feel free to apply carefully to the eyes and lips too). Blend as necessary and voila.

Smooth, and slightly glossy without being sticky.

Looks very natural and there's a shade there for every skin tone. Gives you dewiness without shine.

As with most gel or cream-based formulas, it's never going to last all day, but you need to use so little each time that I'm more than OK with this.

--Value for money--
Pretty good, especially if you can get it in the sale. A stylish, fashionable brand that's affordable and of a high quality, with products for everyone.
