Stila Spring Garden

Spring is a lovely time of year. Hazy winter colors turn technicolor with soft buds bursting open with bright shades of reds and pinks. Stila has fashioned a garden party of a palette for spring 2007. The creative minds at Stila teamed up with Arianne Phillips, an Oscar award nominated costume designer, to design this flirty, feminine collection. You will love it.

The Eyeshadow Trio is housed in a fancy satin box with a debossed flower on it. Flip it open to find a mirror and three lovely colors. A highlighter, crease color and liner shade. The colors are a lot lighter than what they appear. Very subtle. I tried the Ravishing Rose trio- bronzy rose colors- which I accented with brown eyeliner to make my blue eyes appear brighter. (I adore Stila Smudge Pots, used with an eyeliner brush this gel eye liner lets you get super close to the lash line.)

The Convertible Color is used and loved by many a makeup artist. Creamy color you can apply on lips or cheeks. The shades in this collection are Gerbera- a pale peach, and Lillium- soft pink. These pastel colors are flattering on lips, just add a touch of lip glaze for shine. This is the first time that Stila is offering a "split pan" with both Gerbera and Lillium side by side. A touch of Gerbera on the cheeks gives a healthy glow, like you were outside on a chilly day and have that healthy, rosy cheeked appearance.

I keep a Plumping Lip Glaze in my purse at all time. I love lip glosses because they are shinier than a lipstick, light in color and I like the texture of a good gloss- not tacky or sticky. I reapply often so my lips are constantly hydrated and super shiny. The Plumping Lip Glazes will become your favorites and find a permanent home in your purse or pocket. The minty essence of these glosses feels and tastes refreshing.

There is Vanilla Mint, a light peachy-pink, Cherry Mint - rosy pink, Berry Mint- desribed as lavender but is a neutral pale color. The lip glazes are applied by twisting one end and painting the color on your lips with the brush applicator on the other end.

Stila's Kajal Eyeliners are soft, smooth eyeliners in colors of aquamarine, antique silver and rose quartz. The silver looks dramatic applied over black liquid liner which is how I've been doing it, while you can use the rose quartz as an eyeshadow or eyeliner. The pale, shimmery rosy bronze color is easily blendable and very neutral.

What I like about the Kajal liners is the consistency of the product. You never have to pull the skin taut around your eye when applying this eyeliner, it is very, very soft (but not crumbly). The color glides on and can be applied light- or heavy- handed.

Stila remains one of my favorite brands because of the high quality of the products and the creativity behind each collection. The brand is consistently coming out with new colors and collections, keeping things interesting and fun. Stila is a perfect match for all ages- gorgeous dollfaces in their teens or twenties (or 30's, 40's 50's) who want to look fresh and pretty. You can find Stila at Sephora and at their website which has been under construction but will hopefully be up and running soon.
