How’s your day today? Ugh I’m feelin’ a tad under the weather today with a migraine. Ouchie! I think I’ve been staring at my computer screen too long as I do my renewal accounts and it’s crossing my eyes…phew!
But good news! I have the Stila Jewel Eye Shadow Palette and Stila Jewel Lip Glaze to make me feel better!
The Stila Jewel Eye Shadow Palette is prob one of my fav palettes of the season as hey I’ve always admitted how much of a shimmer-a-holic I am. This packs shimmer, lots and lots and lots of shimmer. If you love a sparkly finish this palette will be your dream come true. The palette consists of four shades which are:
- Rose Quartz (light pink with silver sparkle)
- Amethyst (grey eggplant with champagne sparkle)
- Black Diamond (black with silver sparkle)
- Golden Topaz (champagne shimmer with silver and gold sparkle)
The colors have plenty of pigment but you do have to know how to use them as I heard a few rants how they have no color pay off, so not true, they pack plenty of color. I find the best way to apply is with a sponge tip applicator as this packs on color beautifully well. The colors all have a liquid-y look and feel as they look almost liked foiled liquid metal on my lids. Really gorgeous effect. The best way to describe them would be pressed MAC pigment or better yet pressed MAC Solar Bits. The texture and formula runs about the same as the MAC Solar bits in that it’s made up of flaky pieces of pigment but in a press shadow format. The potential for fall out could be great but I experienced no problems when I prepped well and made sure to pack on color with a sponge.
Overall, the palette is well worth picking up if you like sparkly shadows. Absolutely love it! The Muse thinks you need one.
I also got a chance to test out the new Stila Jewel Lip Glaze Trio which comes with three full size lip glazes in a new jewel-infused formula. Again, in keeping with the theme of the collection, you’ll see a diamond-like finish from these as they sport a heavy bit of glitter in the formula. Since they are sold as a trio you’ll get three shades which are:
- Pink Diamond (pink with pink sparkle)
- Amethyst (warm plum with gold sparkle)
- Golden Topaz (amber bronze with pink sparkle)
It could be a tiny rant for some that the formula leaves behind a ton of glitter on your lips well after the gloss has worn away. This doesn’t really bother me much as a re-application is all I need to be back in shape. My fav shade was the Golden Topaz which gives my lips an incredible pop of warm topaz, it’s so lush! The shades are VERY glittery and VERY sparkly with a bit of a metallic finish, loves it!
Overall, the formula isn’t as glossy as the normal Stila Lip Glaze formula but the amount of sparkle they contain more than makes up for it in my opinion.
Stila Spring Collection 2010 injects a healthy dose of glittery, shimmery joy into the season. It does somewhat remind me of a Holiday Collection more than a Spring Collection but working the color collection correctly you can get some fun, elegant, and even warmer looks for the Spring season!
Likey very much!
Anyone haul any of Stila’s Spring Collection?
