Stila Winter 2013 Collection

Sorry for being very bad bloggers of late, while we have been very bad about blogging we have managed to put up a couple of videos on Youtube.  I happen to love a good You Tube video so I hope you like our little offerings.  They really are just me chatting about makeup so if you like that kinda thing check out my video on Stila's Winter Collection 2013.

In case you don't want to watch the video Ill give you a little run down on what I bought from the collection

First up I bought the Stay All Day Vinyl Lip Gloss in the colour Fuchsia Vinyl.  While Stila's other offering of Stay All Day lip colour offer long lasting and vibrant colour they were on the drying side where the Vinyl give you that high gloss almost plastic (but in a good way) look.  They are long lasting but sticky as you cant really achieve such a high seen look without a bit of stick so be careful of these bad boys getting on your teeth. I happen to really like the intense shine that these give and although Fuchsia Vinyl is a shade like nothing I have I really like it (although it would not be an everyday shade for me).  As the high intense shine wears off your left with almost a stain of the colour so while the vinyl look might not stay all day (but it does stick around - sorry pardon the pun for a long time) the colour is left on your lips and I am a big fan of the effect.  The lip gloss costs £18.00 and since the video I have picked up the shade Melon Vinyl.  

One of the reasons I love Stila (besides them making me look pretty and helping my skin look flawless and having pretty products) are they are very innovative with their makeup products as see my their Magnificent Metal Foil Eye shadows.  Now if you look at the video you will see that I am a little conflicted about the product.  So lets discuss: They really are unlike anything I have seen before, its not a metal colour or shade its like metal on your eyes.  Only a tiny amount of product is required for intense, fantastic colour.  You also get a tiny mixing potion with the shadow which also transforms the shadow into a even more foiled look. Again you only need a tiny amount of this, in fact if you pack on this product it can clump up so be careful in your creases.  You don't get tons of product in the packaging but a tiny amount will do and my advice would be to avoid the creases.   I really haven't seen anything quite like this on the market and once you swatch it you will want one.  I am conflicted about this product for one reason: Its expensive, very expensive €44 eeks.  I know.  In the video I show you Comex Gold and since then I have picked up Stila's classic shade Kitten but I did wait til there was a discount evening in Harvey Nicks.  Initially we only had a couple of shades to try in Ireland and the UK Stila seem to have gotten all 9 shades in stock (and dam if they are not all stunners).  

I am still conflicted by the Magnificent Shadows they truly are magnificent (if in doubt swatch them, guarantee you will fall in love) and I am a little scared to see that now have the emerald and black gold shade in stock because they are amazing.  In saying that the price does make me draw breath and freak out a little. 

Stila is available from Harvey Nicks Dublin (the girls there are lovely),, Cara Pharmacy Sligo and online from Brown Thomas.  That's right you can now collect your Brown Thomas loyalty points and shop for Stila at the same time (click here).  This makes me very happy indeed.
