Hello! Sharing a few of my current faves from Stila today.
Ahh, it's always happy days with Stila Cosmetics! I think my first (none-drugstore) eyeshadow was "Kitten" by Stila. It was so pretty and it was named "kitten". In marketing speak, "it sells itself."
|My collection of stay all day liquid lipsticks & plumping primer|
The stay all day liquid lipsticks are amazing. They lasted through-out the day and even through a bowl of laksa (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laksa). They do slowly wear off a bit but evenly and there is a bit of a stain left which is still quite pretty.
When paired with the lush lips primer, the colour of the lipstick is intensified. There is a slight candy scent to them which is not unpleasant. There is no taste to them, meaning neither sweet nor waxy like some lipsticks. The texture is smooth as you apply it. It does set fairly quickly, so I would suggest using a matching lipliner or a lip brush to pick up the colour to line your lips, then fill it in using the applicator.
It is not uncomfortable on the lips. Nor drying. I would recommend using the primer or a lip balm first to prime you lips so that it does not settle into any lines (if you do have them).
|Got Inked Cushion Eye Liners|
It's innovative, but also necessary because the formula of the liner is that it is watery. They are a slightly more watery liquid eyeliner. Hence the need for the cushion so that they could sell it in the "pot" style packaging. You use it with their La Quil eyeliner brush (my favourite) or any eyeliner brush.
That being said, most liquid eyeliners do come with a brush, for example the famous K-Palette eyeliner.
|A very popular Japanese product|
As for lasting power. AMAZING.
|Beautiful huh? Applied on bare skin (no primer)|
That's pretty cool.
|Aqua Glow Water Color Blush in shimmering lotus|
I've also been enjoying the aqua glow water color blushes. They are SO pretty.
The effect of these blushes are a bit like the iope cushion blushes but without the sunscreen.
I would not recommend using a brush. It will get very messy.
They both have tiny tiny shimmering gold micro-crystals in them.
Lasting power: pretty decent. Through out the work day.
It feels most refreshing applied on a hot day.
Downside, again, hard to apply on the go due to the packaging design. I think the iope one is better suited for touch-ups. I carry those in my work bag.

So what are your favourite Stila products? I've just got the new convertible colour palettes and I've yet to test them. Would love to hear what you think!
