Stila Christmas 2015 Sending you Love - Sealed with a Kiss

Is it wrong that every Christmas when I see Stila's gift sets I start frantically thinking of reasons I should treat myself.  One year I did all of Paul's present shopping (buying a lot off Stila for his sister and sister in law) and I deserved a treat for that.  Last year I was preggers so all rules out the window.  This year Stila's Christmas sets look so amazing I don't need an excuse (although I think the baby really wants to buy me something...just cause).

There are six sets in total and I don't quite know which one I want more - I think I'm going to need them all.   The palettes have a theme of old fashioned love letters letters (which is a nice follow up on the La Quill Liner brush) everybody loves to receive letters in the post (except bills) and its so rare these days.  First up is Trust in Love (€38.00) the packaging of which looks like a letter complete with a wax seal.  The set contains 12 of Stila's buttery eye shadows which look to be mostly wearable shades with a pop of jewel colour here and there, one of Stila's famous Lipglaze and a deluxe sample of Huge Extreme Mascara (which I love).

If your a makeup lover you really need to check out the Sending My Love set. The set looks like letter writing set but when you open it instead of finding pens and paper you find an eyeshadow palette with 5 shadows (3 neutral shades and 2 pops of colour), a face palette containing a blush, contour and highlighter, a smudge stick liner (love these they are brilliant for tight lining) and a mini lip glaze.  Basically you have everything to create a perfect face all for €49.00.

Sealed With A Kiss (in keeping with the letter theme) contains 6 (deluxe size) Stila's award winning Lip Glazes.  You can never go wrong with a Lip Glaze its a classic lip gloss the scent of the lip gloss matches the shades (Pomegranate Sparkle, Ruby Grapefruit, Raspberry, Mandarin Light, Papaya Pizaz, Peach).  The set costs €36.50.                        

I have spoken about my love for the Huge Extreme Lash Mascara and the Lash Stunner Lash Primer (read about them here), they are a fantastic duo and the Huger Than Huge Set is perfect way to trial these bad boys without forking out full price.  The set contains a deluxe size primer and mascara for €19.00.

I am a sucker for a lip product, especially a bold lip product and Stila's Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks are my favourite long lasting lipstick (they really do last all day but as with all long lasting lip colour have your lips prepped and in tip top condition).   The set Eternally Yours has 6 deluxe size Stay All Day Lipsticks for €30.00.  The shades (Caramello, Patina, Aria, Como, Chianti, Fiery) range from nude to bright and contain 2 new shades as well as the cult shade Patina (which is always Sold Out). 

If you would prefer to dip your toe into Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks (although I think your going to need both sets) you could pick up the Eternal Love (€22.50) set which contains three shades (Ricco, Beso, Baci) two of which are exclusive and will not be released until next year.

Stila Christmas (or Mags Heaven as I like to call it) hits the shops on the 1st November and is available from, Sam McCauleys Chemists, Harvey Nichols Dundrum AND Arnotts Department Store (how exciting is that?).  I have heard from my sources that the collection looks even more beautiful in the flesh, I cant wait to check it out and Ill let you what I pick up.
