Stila Cosmetics: Toscana Liquid Lipstick

Stila Cosmetics Toscana Liquid LipstickOkay so this might not seem suuuuuuper lit but we still thought it was totally worth mentioning – Stila Cosmetics had a SURPRISE release today of a NEW shade in their Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick line called Toscana! There aren’t many photos available (just the ones we have here in this post) but they’re enough to make up stop DEAD in our tracks – this is freaking PRETTY! Screen Shot 2017-07-06 at 8.27.47 PM

The shade is an incredibly creamy, soft taupe shade. Probably doesn’t scream July, but we do us and we wear dark bold lips anytime we damn well please… that got aggressive, sorry, but this shade seriously is lovely. It’ll retail for $24 just like the rest of the line. The formula of these liquid lipsticks is truly fantastic. I have tried quite a few and the comfortability is real as is the staying power (we’re talking like 6 hours). The formula is creamy but matte (not drying though) and super opaque (but not thick, it actually feels so light on the lips you can hardly even tell its there!) Plus, they love you skin with Vitamin E and avocado oil for softness & hydration. What more could you possibly want?!



Stila Cosmetics: Fall 2017 Collection

This might seem a little early & we don’t really want to think of anything besides summer right now but we aren’t even mad… Stila Cosmetics surprised us all with the announcement of their Fall 2017 Collection launching Wednesday, 6.21! AHHHH, such short notice! This is a prettttyy sizeable collection with some super exciting new products! First, we have the NEW Stay All Day 2-in-1 Foundation & Concealer ($42). It may not be what you’re thinking, though – a foundation that covers & applies like a concealer (kind of like the Milani or Covergirl versions, eh?). NOPE! This is soooooo neat; it’s a foundation bottle with a built-in, concealer ON THE TOP! Whatttttt the heck?! As you can see in the pictures below, the concealer is in the top of the cap, which can be removed to access the foundation. This is launching in a whopping 16 shades! We love that! The formula of the foundation is said to be lightweight with a more natural finish (so likely not super full coverage) with a peachy-toned concealer to cancel out under eye darkness or discoloration. PLUS (as if it couldn’t get better) they feature 12-hour longevity, water-resistance and are also oil-free and fragrance-free. Okay, let’s catch our breath.


The collection also includes the One Step Primer, One Step Illuminate, One Step Correct each for $36. The Primer is a lightweight serum that (obviously) smooths and conditions your skin to prepare it for your makeup application! It’s 50% water which gives it that super light, hydrating, comfortable feel we all live for and is, like the foundation & concealer, oil-free and fragrance-free.

The Illuminate acts to brighten and even your skin tone with a combination of shades mixed in: a champagne pop to highlight the skin, a classic Stila Kitten peachy swirl for brightness and a subtle pale pink twist to add warmth. This sounds soooooo perfect for summertime! Rub this all over under your fav bb cream for a lit-from-within glow that’ll make you look like a glowing beach-going goddess!

Lastly, the Correct (again, obv) neutralizes any of your (few, very few) imperfections. The formula includes a cool multi-tasking helix serum to color correct with all the classics: a green to counteract redness, a peach to cancel out darker spots and lavender to fight against sallow tones and provide some brightness.

All 3 of these can TOTALLY be used as your primary primer step OR you can just as easily layer the Illuminate or Correct serums over the primer for an extra strong foundation base – either way, you’re going to be KILLING IT! Especially if you splurge for the final item in the collection – the #33 brush redesigned in gold. It’s beauutiful but for $32, it might not be a must-have. However, if you’re a Stila girl, can you really pass up a gold brush?! We think not.





Stila: Spring 2017 Collection #STILAGLITTER


It might only be January, but it’s never too early for a NEW spring makeup launch – which Stila knows. TODAY they launched their 2017 SPRING COLLECTION! They’ve launch a variety of new shades & products.

There are 5 BRAND NEW Stay-All-Day Liquid Lipsticks in shades that scream spring – from soft dusty pinks to taupe browns and deep berries. These are never-before seen shades – they look beautiful! To go along with it, they are also releasing a MEGA SPARKLE top coat in two shades … uhh, yes! This is the perfect product to throw over any matte lip product to bring some moisture and luscious shine!


In addition to these super exciting lip products, the line also includes legendary Stila eye products. The Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow liquid eyeshadows are out in 8 new shades – yes, 8!! These fit completely perfectly into their #stilaglitterunderground theme with the amazing shine, sparkle and color payoff. To accompany the liquid shadows, they are also launching a brand new eyeshadow palette! The palette is gorgeous! I see a bit of a Urban Decay Naked 3 vibe going on with the soft mauves and pinks. This palette is super versatile, too, as it contains an equal number of mattes & shimmers. How perfect for spring??


Lastly, but certainly not least, we have a brand new highlighter to get obsessed with (like we need more of these…) The Heaven’s Hue Highlighter comes in three shades. I’m most excited that one of these is a soft, golden lavender. I have a soft spot for anything purple and shiny. The highlighters are super exciting because they’re BOUNCY! Who doesn’t love bouncy makeup products?! Remember those Maybelline Dream Bouncy blushes? You can’t deny these types of formulas make the application process even more fun. Stila knows the way to our hearts or, rather, our faces.
