Stila's Spring 2011 Collection

This spring, Stila is launching loads of new goodies that need to be checked out. Here is a quick rundown of what's new.

(Shown in Taffy.)

Stila's Prime Pot is a new primer, available in two matte shades - Taffy and Caramel, that will help extend the look of your shadow. Or wear it alone for a really natural look. I picked this up recently and I love it. Taffy matches my skin tone perfectly (like Painterly did), but is softer, smoother and somehow makes eyes look wide awake, fresh and hydrated.

(Painterly is on top, Taffy is below. Both are barely visible on my hand, because they match me so well! Stare for a moment and you will see them! Click on the picture itself to make it larger.)

Don't just pass this one by. It's worth checking out. This retails for $20.

I loved the Carbon Black Stay All Day Liquid Liner last year. It's my go to liquid black- it's shiny, long lasting and the brush/pen makes it really easy to apply. This spring, two new colors will be available, Chocolate Brown and Indigo. I checked out the Indigo in store and it's a different blue than I was expecting! It's a really pretty reflex blue (which is designer-speak for a pure blue). Think like a blue ink pen. It's really pretty, but not for the meek. These are $20 each.

There are a few makeup products that were like my gateway makeup into non-drugstore products. I remember agonizing over a decision in my very early twenties to choose between buying an eye shadow from Stila or seeing if I could find something similar at F&M. Kitten was the first higher end shadow I ever purchased and I treasured it. I've owned Kitten in all of it's reincarnations over the years and was super excited to hear that Stila was launching an All Over Shimmer Duo in Kitten.

This duo is gorgeous. It's just as silky, but not quite as shiny or as golden as the original. Put this anywhere you want some serious radiance.

I love it for creating a luminized face and the darker tone is perfect for fair-toned gals like me to use as a contour shade. This is a must-have at $22.

Don't miss these two ready to wear Eye Shadow Trios in Gilded and Ethereal. Ethereal includes a pinky tan all over color, a mauve grey crease color and a dark pearlescent brown as a liner. Gilded includes a wheat shimmer, intense gold and dark espresso, and all are flaked with gold.

This combo is beautiful for light eyes! These will retail for $22 each.

I am in love and equally heartbroken over the next addition from Stila. The new Glitter Liner in Kitten is beautiful and for my blue eyes, is literally like adding little lights around your eyes. This rosey-champagney-goldish color is gorgeous.

If your eyes can tolerate glitter liners, this is a must have.

(Wearing the liner and the Gilded trio.)

My eyes don't always do so well with these kind of liners (only from certain brands though, and I am not sure why). For me, if I don't get it near the waterline or tear ducts, I am ok. Too close to the lashes and my eyes rebel. In the few minutes I had this on, it was stunning. Pick this up for $16.

The newest addition to the Lip and Cheek Stain comes in the form Coconut Crush, a really pretty rosy-bronzey-gold coconut. Coconut extract has interesting anti-aging properties and I know this new color is a favorite of some of my friends at Sephora. It's available for $24.

Have you tried any of the Silk Shimmer Glosses? Stila is adding a new bronzed gloss, Sunlight, to the line. It's super shiny and equally hydrating. It sells for $22.

Also new is the Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer with an SPF of 20. This tinted moisturizer is packed with goodies. Enriched with vitamins A & E, it conditions skin with antioxidant protection. Ginger root extract, gingko biloba leaf extract and chamomile combine to eliminate redness, soothe skin and improve elasticity. Micro-fine light diffusing pigments fade fine lines and instantly impart a healthy radiance to skin, creating a gorgeous glow every time. This retails for $34.

Finally, Stila launched this adorable blush palette just in time for Valentine's Day. It's so cute and nicely priced at $14. Buy it online from Sephora for $20 and score two lippies!

What has caught your attention? I love the Shimmer Duo, especially for the cheeks and the primer. What are you picking up or passing on?

  1. Hi Kelly! I had the pleasure of trying out some of the Stila products, along with a co-worker and our opinions were similar to yours: I'm older,so I let her test the sparkly stuff! She RAVED about the Glitter Liner and the Stay All day liquid liner. I love the Chocolate Brown, and she, the Indigo. And it truly DOES stay all day on my watery, sensitive eyes. Also, I'm "crushing on" the Coconut Crush lip and cheek stain. It is a YLBB color! And lovely with gloss over it. I'm kind of "meh" about the eyeshadow trios, but I loved the All-over shimmer duo in Kitten. Thanks for featuring one of my favorite bloggers (she HAS to be lying about being in her 60's!!!--gorgeous and wonderful woman!)

  2. I like the blush and the coconut cheek stain.

    I'm a big fan of the kitten eye shadow, and the smudge pots :>
