Stila Spring 2014

I was telling you how Stila's Spring Collection 2014 was all about liners (here), I had to pick up some of the vibrant shades that Stila have brought out for Spring 2014.  Stila's last few collections have featured Limited edition Smudge Stick and Stay All Day Waterproof Liner Shades.  Spring 2014 is literally a rainbow of liners.  I am a huge fan of Smudge Sticks cause they do exactly what they say, you can line, you can smudge. The colours are vibrant and they stick around all day.  

I picked up the colours Cobalt (a cobalt blue), Canary (a canary yellow) and Sepia (golden taupe).  I love Spring and Summer makeup collections - I love how bright and vibrant they are, even though Stila's Spring collection mainly consists of liners they are so vivacious and colourful they can brighten up your whole look. I love the Spring/Summer look of brown/coral lids with blue liner (seen in Clarins Summer palette) we all have a million brown shades at home so all you need to do is pick up Stila Cobalt (£13.00 or €17.00) BOOM Hello Summer 2014. 

Currently Stila now have a whopping 28 shades of Smudge Sticks and 15 shades of Stay All Day liners.  If your a makeup artist Stila offer a phenomenal range of liner shades - or maybe your like me and see what a necessity it is to have a Canary yellow eye liner in your collection.  It is worth taking note that the counter in Harvey Nicks Dublin DO NOT have the full range of colours if you want to see the full range go to  

These are one swatch of the liners and as you can see you get bright vibrant colour, Cobalt is simply stunning and you can swipe again to build up a more intense colour.  When I visited the Stila counter at Harvey Nicks (which does NOT stock Canary or Cobalt) I spied the shade Metallic Umber but I forgot the name and ordered Sepia - not to worry Sepia is the prettiest golden taupe which is so flattering on the eyes.

HMMMM you know the way I LOVE STILA - well I also picked up another Magnificent Metals Eye Liner in Metallic Black Tanzanite which is a stunning blackened purple.  For me these will come into their own for night time or smokey looks (perfect for parties and Christmas).   During the Spring (when it arrives) and Summer I like to wear less makeup so I probably will not get a whole lot of use out of this beauty during the summer months.  

One light swipe of Cobalt - I love this shade its so instantly vibrant.

Here is Canary - no I haven't worn it a lot but I love what a happy colour yellow is so I had to have it.  I don't know why this shade makes my eyeball look angry.  If your a makeup artist you could go to town with these shades and create interesting and out there looks - I am an old woman so I just went for a simple line.  

I love Stila Smudge Sticks I try and collect them all because they are so simple to use, give great colour payoff, are soft (I use them to tight line).  For me they are my Holy Grail liners, I love that there is such a wide range of colours.  

You can buy Stila from (with Free Shipping to UK and a small Shipping Charge to Ireland), Harvey Nicks Dublin, Brown Thomas and Cara Pharamcy.  

I am so excited for Stila's Summer Collection which will at 9 shades to their iconic convertible cheek colours.... oh dear Mr. Bank will not be very happy with me when it launches Mid May.
