Stila One Step Correct Primer Review and Swatches

Gather round silicone primer hates and rejoice in the new Stila One Step Correct Primer. It might look like a DNA sample but it’s actually a silicone-free primer, color corrector, brightener, and anti-aging skincare serum all in one wonder.

God, I love makeup so hard that promises me the universe. It might not deliver but I eat it up like candy and completely buy into anything they tell me.

Stila Custom Color Blush Review and Swatches

Ahhhh pink. For a long time it was my signature shade of choice. Pink always gives my cheeks a youthful glow so I’m all over it like white on rice. The Stila Fall Collection 2010 has released and it’s all about that perfect shade of color for cheeks.

Now, I don’t really commonly associate the shade of pink with Fall but I can’t deny that I’m really loving hard on the Stila Custom Color Blush.

Beauty Reflections: A Look Back At Summer 2010

Beauty Reflections

I can’t believe Summer is almost over. In some ways it lasted for ages and in others it feels like it flew by. Did you enjoy your Summer so far? Do anything special?

As Summer draws to a close, I’ll be reviewing the last of the Summer items I have stashed away and start to concentrate more on Fall and Holiday 2010. It’s quite an exciting time as I simply adore Holiday Collections!

Until we get deeper into Fall and Holiday we might as well enjoy the last days of Summer the best we can right? Here are some great posts from Summer 2010 that you may have missed!

NARS Skin Smoothing Face Prep released this Summer and it wasn’t exactly what I had hoped it would be. Some people loved it, alot of people hated it, and I gotta admit mine fell deep into the Makeup Graveyard!

Stila Pretty in Paris Palette Review and Swatches

Stila Pretty in Paris Palette 3

Ok, so, most of us agree that the new Stila Travel Palettes are all about the cuteness and the price but not necessarily the contents. I was a wee disappointed in the USA palette and honestly the upcoming Tokyo one is doing nothing for me either.

However, Stila Pretty in Paris….

You need it!

Stila Holiday/Winter Collection 2010 Plus Stila Online Warehouse Sale!

Stila Warehouse Sale 2010

Ok, let me tell you, I so wish I was a California gurl when the Stila Warehouse Sale is on. Once or twice a year Stila has a huge warehouse sale and invites junkies to get their fix with rock bottom prices on all their incredible makeup. Fab right? Well, fab if you’re on the west coast but if you’re stuck somewhere in between or on the east coast like me chances are you’re not overindulging your sweet tooth on fabulous Stila makeup at sweet ass prices.

Damn, life is unfair.

Before I get into a major discussion about Stila’s Warehouse sale (yes, you TOO can take advantage even if you aren’t in sunny CA) let me tell you a little sumthing, sumthing about Stila Holiday 2010. Yes, Holiday 2010, GASP! Everyone click here and proceed to throw your hands in the air and run in circles. That’s your first glimpse of what Stila has in store for us this year!

Isn’t that palette off the hook?

Yes, please, gimme!

Now about that warehouse sale…….
