Sneak Peek: Stila Fall Collection 2009: Stila’s Smitten with Kitten Collection Stila Black Cat Smudge Pot Review and Swatches

Stila calls their new Black Cat Smudge Pot a pretty black gel liner with a blend of Kitten Shimmer. I call it gorgeous.


Click ahead for a peep!

If Stila Kitten Smudge Pot was a little too sweet for you, a little too innocent, try out a little mystery and sexiness with Stila Black Cat Smudge Pot. This black gel liner is infused with a golden sparkle that can be used as a liner, or a smudged up smoky lid color, or line lashes with it as a twinkling mascara. Releasing as part of the Stila’s Smitten with Kitten Collection this liner gives a sultry look to eyes to add an edge of drama.

Black Cat is almost brown in color due to the heavy dose of golden champagne sparkle that’s infused into the formula. It’s very flattering on my brown eyes! The pot is large enough to line with and if you so please go right ahead and add a bit to lids and blend out for a sultry smoked out eye look.


If you already own the Stila 24K Smudge Pot from Stila’s Summer Collection this year do go and indulge in Black Cat as it’s considerably different. Black Cat has way more shimmer to it and is a richer shade of blackish brown when compared to the Summer release. Dare I say even prettier?


The Muse highly recommends allowing this Black Cat to slink into your Fall cosmetic wardrobe, it’s delicious!

Available from Stila in September!

Sneak Peek: Stila Fall Collection 2009 Stila Kitten Lip Glaze Review and Swatches

If you were busy admiring my gloss in my Stila Kitten Smudge Pot post, allow me to tell you all about it. Along with it’s new Fall Collection Stila is releasing a brand new lip glaze in the Kitten color.


Good news for Kitten lovers I’m sure.

Jump for it.

First off, allow me to remind you Kitten has already been formulated in an LE gloss back in Summer 2008. No offense Stila but I really didn’t dig that gloss so I’m quite happy, ecstatic actually that Stila went ahead and re-released the shade in lip glaze formula.

Stila Lip Glaze is quite nice in general. Nicely pigmented, plenty of tack and stick for a long wearing formula, and a great click pen for application. Loves it!

Adding the shade Kitten to the line is fantastic as it pairs beautifully with Kitten shadow and the likes and as I said the original gloss formula wasn’t particularly great but lip glaze is by all means a beautiful gloss.


The Lip Glaze shade is considerably richer when compared to the shadow. It has a bit of pink sparkle to it but heavily golden beige for the most part. The shade is flattering for Fall without question but works well in the Summer sun as well!

If you’ve been longing for Kitten in gloss formula here’s your chance. Stila Kitten Lip Glaze releases this September as part of the Stila Fall Collection, Stila Smitten with Kitten.

Sneak Peek: Stila Fall Collection 2009 Stila Kitten Smudge Pot Review and Swatches Stila Smitten with Kitten Collection

Stila roars (or maybe meows?) into Fall with brand new Kitten goodies that are sure to please. Here’s a little sneak peek review at the brand new Stila Kitten Smudge Pot releasing this September at Sephora.


Check it!

Stila introduced Kitten Eyeshadow way back when in 1997. I do believe this was just around the time I was getting into Stila and can recall Kitten being a fast favorite. I’m not the only one as many a fan will attest that Stila Kitten Eyeshadow is a cult fav! With it’s universally flattering combination of pink and beige champagne it’s one of those soft shadows that’s brilliant for dressing up or down with. Many a fan are Smitten with this Kitten.

The release of Stila Smitten with Kitten Collection for Fall 2009 includes two new smudge pots and one new lipglaze.

You’ll be seeing Stila Kitten Smudge Pot and Stila Kitten Lip Glaze today in separate reviews and later this week I’ll be showing you Stila Black Cat Smudge Pot which is also apart of this sweet collection. Kitten has been done prior to this in a cream form and also a gloss in the Summer 2008 but it’s still very nice to see it released in a smudge pot and lip glaze format.


Stila Smudge Pots are great multitasking tools to use as a shadow primer, an all over shadow color, liner, or go crazy and use on cheeks and brow bone for a pretty highlighter. Stila Kitten Smudge Pot is a gorgeous blend of pink ad beige champagne with a shimmer finish. This smudge pot is particularly great if you’re not in love with the fall out from the powder format of Kitten as this blends easily onto the eye minus clean up after use.


Stila Smitten with Kitten is a Muse Approved for purchase. It’ll be available from Stila in September but I suspect you’ll see it towards the end of August.

If you’re a lover of Kitten you’ll sure to want to peep at this collection!

Beauty News: Stila Pulls Out Of Japan

0

We were discussing Stila’s demise in Europe and Asia a few weeks ago and it’s finally confirmed that Stila is now out of Japan as well!

My good friend Iris reports that Stila will be completely pulled from Japan by the end of August. I’m shocked to hear this as Stila does very well in Asian countries. It’s quite sad!

The good news is Stila is working on gaining ground again in the cosmetic world so just be patient and I’m sure you’ll see Stila back in your country again soon!

Top Keyword Searches At Musings

musings

This is kinda a fun post or at least I think it is. I’m always curious what brings new users to Musings. I wonder how they get here, who they heard about me from, or what they looked up to locate my blog. I can’t always tell if they heard about me from someone else or how they got here to begin with although I can make a guess as I can see where they traveled from to pop up here. One of my favorite pass times though is looking through keywords that brought a reader to my site. These are words they typed into a search engine which led them here!

I compiled a list of some of the top keywords that my stat service has collected and I thought I’d share them with you!

Click below for the list!

BB Cream, Blemish Balm Cream

With my very long post about What a BB Cream Is? it doesn’t surprise me that this is one of the top keywords that brings readers to Musings!

Steam Cream is also a top search word that brings users over yonder. I find this rather funny as I fell so hard for Steam Cream and posted so much about it I’m guessing people gather around here as it’s the first thing that pops up in google when I search Steam Cream myself!

Lush Reviews seems to be a top keyword as well. Not much surprise there considering how much I adore Lush!

Benefit Coralista seems to be a keyword that’s led quite a few readers to my blog! Any wonder as Coralista was love at first swipe!

Stila Look Book is an interesting one as it continues to be a top keyword that leads people here. Interesting as Look Books are ages old and it’s been a while since I posted about them! Obviously they still warrant an interest from some readers.

Some weird ones:

Steal It From my Friends Album
Hmmm what’s this person up to?

Green Snot
When have I ever blogged green snot and why is this keyword bringing readers here?!

Naughty Maggie Gyllenhaal
I imagine my Agent Provocateur post tickles this keyword!

Are you a new reader?

What sort of keywords led you to my blog?
