The Wizards of Stila - Today was a great day

Today was a very special day for me, I got to meet the wonderful people behind the return of Stila.  As you know I love makeup but my favourite all time brand is Stila so to have the opportunity to talk to the brains behind the return of the brand to our makeup stashes was pretty amazing. 

The morning was bright and glorious so with a spring in my step and singing along to "We're off to see the Wizard", I went on my way.  I was a little nervous and thought perhaps they were just meeting me to give me a restraining order.  I am not great when it comes to meeting people I admire (evidence of this would be the time when I met Take That, I lost the power of speech and started hyperventilating - please note this was not when I was 16, it was about 4 years ago - or perhaps the time when I met Bressie and the only words I could manage were "you're very tall" which I am sure somebody who is 6 foot 6 has never heard before) so I was anxious they would think I was a little odd (not in a good way odd). 

The Stila team are so enthusiastic about the brand and it's amazing to talk to people so inspired and excited by their work, not to mention the fact that they are truly lovely people who made me right at home and we had a great chat.  They are a talented bunch over at Stila and are geniuses at what they do (They should have their own superhero costumes).  Stila have a lot of exciting plans up their sleeve so stay tuned and make sure you sign up for their newsletter (here).

I was delighted to have a sneak peak at some of the Summer products and they are AMAZING, it's like Stila reached into my brain and picked out what I dreamed about (only better).  I keep looking in awe at my hand where the swatches are.  These will be must have products.

It was so generous and kind of them to take some time out of their busy day to meet me and give me an opportunity to bombard them with questions.

Before I left Stila (heroes) kindly gave me some of the Spring collection to try out (I checked the packaging for a hidden restraining order- and you will be pleased to know there wasn't one) and of course headed home to try them out.  I will have swatches of the products up tomorrow.   So here is my simple Stila look... but to be honest my face is beaming after meeting the amazing Stila team (The Cheshire Cat has nothing on me today). 

 I got a wee bit excited by this Stila bag.

 First I used the Smudge Crayon waterproof eye colour in Pink Violet all over my lid (here)

Next I patted the Jewel eyeshadow in Amethyst on top (here).
 The effect of these Jewel Shadows are amazing, they are like a disco on your lid.
 I applied the lip glaze in Kitten on my lips (here) and Cheshire cat own (sorry this is the smallest smile I had all day).

Head over to Stila's wonderful site and have a look at their new spring products (here). Pin It
