This cute little compact is a new release from Stila for summer 2012. Set & Illuminate Baked Powder Trio contains "illuminating and light refracting powders" beneath a plastic grinder that helps to dispense fresh powder on demand.
This is a seriously weighty compact - perhaps a little too weighty to be carried around in a handbag every day. Inside the sleek black packaging, you'll find a reasonably large mirror as well as the powder and grinding mechanism.
There are three shades included - a pale pink to add warmth, champagne for highlighting, and Kitten - Stila's ever popular brightening shade - to add radiance and illumination.
Many illuminating products give a glitterball effect, instead of a soft, barely noticeable glow. This powder, thankfully, isn't glittery at all - the effect is very subtle, brightening and glowy but in no way sparkly. The swatch above was pretty heavy and had to be photographed in bright sunlight to even be a little bit visible, so there's very little risk of ending up looking too sparkly with this stuff.
At £24, Set & Illuminate isn't cheap, but nor is it your average radiance product. If you've looking for a setting powder which gives a genuinely subtle glowy effect, this is well worth a try. Find it at Stila counters and concessions, and online via their new webstore.
