A new Stila Collection is available on the site this morning which is entitled Pon Pon Gerbera and centers around the Gerbera daisy!
The new collection is themed as an “Asia Exclusive” but as we know from the Christmas Collection that’s probably not the case at all.
However, the collection is very pretty and consists of a new palette, one new blush, a lipgloss, and a glitter liner!
As pretty as the collection is I wouldn’t run too quickly to purchase it as Stila has been having a crazy amount of sales lately and I’m positive within a few months these items will be greatly reduced!
Pon Pon Gerbera Palette $45 USD
Pon Pon Gerbera Blush $18 USD
Pon Pon Gerbera Lip Glaze $20 USD
Glitter Eyeliner in Purple Pink $18
From what I can tell the only repromote in the collection is the Glitter Eye Liner aside from that the rest of the items are newly released colors!
It looks like a nice collection but I can definately wait for a sale!

Stila has introduced two new quads for the Spring entitled Spring 4 Eyes in two flavors, Montemart and Marrakesh.
According the Stila’s website each palette is mini size and the shadows are about the size of a US nickel!
They sound very cute but the price tag of $38 USD doesn’t thrill me nor do the colors! The palette itself looks quite nice with the silver embossed Stila logo but I’m not excited enough to shell out nearly $40 for a tiny palette!
Montemart is a cool palette that contains shimmering shades of pinks and purples while Marrakesh is a warm palette that contains shimmering shades of golds and bronzes!
They look very cute but I think I’ll be passing as I know of at least four other collections that have caught my eye and are on the top of my Must Have List for the Spring (Plus I don’t want to be caught in three months having spent the original price tag and seeing them on sale as Stila has been having a TON of sales as of late!).
Tell your Muse!
I’m in lust with Stila’s newest lip and cheek stain Cherry Crush! I’m about to give a raving review to you for this new product! Yay!
Ok, before I rave I have to rant as that’s the proper order of the day for the Muse! This is a multitasking product that you can use to stain your lips or your cheeks which is where my rant comes into play! The idea of using this on my lips and then smoothing it on my cheeks and vice versa totally grosses me out. Sorry but it’s just not entirely hygienic to use it on my lips and then proceed to put it on my face. Easy enough would be purchasing two, one for your face and one for your lips! I plan on doing just that but it’s somewhat expensive at $24 USD. That’s my only minor rant now I can rave!
This comes in a click style pen so basically you’re clicking for the color! I’m not particularly a big fan of click pens as I always find they distribute way too much product at one time. Anyway! When I got this I proceeded to click and swiped the color from the brush onto my fingertips to use on my cheeks and I’m happy to report this is very deeply pigmented so it gives your cheeks a lovely flush of color! The texture is a moisturizing gel! It slides onto your face easy enough, rub it in, and you’re instantly blushing! Beautiful!
The remaining of the time I’ve been using this I’ve avoided using it on my face as the brush included on the end of the pen has been touching my lips way too often so as I said I’m utterly freaked to use it on my skin now! I’m a big fan of staining my lips and cheeks prior to blush and gloss so this is a great product for me! Again, it’s just as pigmented on your lips as it is on your cheeks! I’ve heard many rants about how stains cause dry lips, I’ve personally never had that problem but with this you can safely avoid dry lips as the formula is very moisturizing and lovely! It not only stains your lips but it also has a knack for making your lips look fuller and glossy! The stain is not overdone in anyway and it gives just enough color to make it look quite natural on and not clowny. The color is a subdued red so it looks as if you bit your lips or have just been kissed. My lips are rather dull and pale without gloss or stain so this is a great solution for me during the day when I’ve bitten off my gloss and lipcolor! Pop it out, swipe it on, beautiful!
Overall, it’s a really cute product! I’m slightly disappointed that it’s not entirely multitasking as I had hope for because I seriously doubt anal folks will be swiping this on their lips and proceeding to do so on their cheeks but aside from that and the slightly high price tag it’s great! Plus it contains a slew of “good for you” ingredients such as Vitamins A, C and E and did I mention it smells and tastes so yummie!? It smells like crushed cherries and tastes just as sweet!
Stila’s Cherry Crush gets a big RAVE for purchase! I’m loving it and it’s most definately Muse Approved for purchase!
Have it already?

I have a mixed review for the Stila Illuminating Finishing Powder for you! I’m currently having a love/hate relationship with these.
The texture is lovely. They are made up of a very fine shimmering powder that glides on your face near perfectly. If you try these on the back of your hand you get a rather gorgeous shimmering effect but sadly that doesn’t apply to your face. Upon applying to your face the shimmer is barely noticeable which is somewhat disappointing. It does however create a rather subtle glow on your face.
The great thing is wearing these on a clean bare face works some kind of magic. I tried it and it gave me a beautiful highlight and it really helped with the shadows and dullness my skin sometimes has.
I haven’t yet tried it but these would probably make a great base for your eyeshadow as well or on their own as an eyeshadow and they are truly beautiful shades!
I’m not entirely sure why I’m not completely in love with them as of yet. I think some of it stems from the fact that they appear so much more beautiful and shimmery on the back of my hand but the same effect doesn’t apply when I use it on my face! However, I have read it all depends on what brush you use when applying these so hopefully with a little patience I’ll find the perfect brush to use!
Overall, they are really pretty powders! Not nearly as good as MAC Mineralized Skinfinishes but not bad either.
At $32 USD per a powder these aren’t cheap sadly however they do have the potential to be great! I’m just testing the waters at the moment so I’m caught between loving and hating them!
The packaging is excellent on these in my opinion. It’s a hard aluminum case with an easy pop off lid! It’s quite simple yet cute!
I can’t yet give these a Muse approval for purchase but I am slowly falling in love with them!
Tell your Muse!
