Barbie Loves Stila
I picked up a few things from this collection a few weeks ago. I have never been a big fan of Stila. I have never really cared for their shadows. Everyone else seems to love them but me.
I first saw this in an email from Stila and thought everything looked so cute! BUT because of my dislike for the eye shadows I wasn't anticipating much.
Well a few days later I go to Sephora and they just put out the whole collection.
Everything looked even prettier in person. I swatched the shadows right away and they seemed good but that's how all the others I have tried felt. I decided it was too cute to pass up so I put it in my basket.
The other thing that caught my eye from the email is the Smudge Pot in Purple Pumps, so I opened it to swatch it. As soon as I saw the color, before I even swatched it I KNEW I had to have it! I swatched everything else and loved it all. I was trying to have SOME self control so I got one more thing, the Smudge Pot in Little Black Dress.
I have had a lot of time to play with everything and I have to say I LOVE it all!
I was very happy with the palette. The shadows are very pigmented and don't seem crumbly/powdery like a lot of their other shadows I have tried. This is also an amazing deal. You get 12 different colors of shadow for only $28. You can create so many different looks with this one palette.
I took the swatch pictures at night so I didn't have any natural light and the flash washed out the colors. :-/ If you want better swatches just let me know. :-)
I have never tried Smudge Pots before these and I was very happy with them. They are very smooth and glide on very easily. They are also long lasting which is always great. I loved them so much I want to get some more. I'll probably get the blue one from this collection.
Purple Pumps is a beautiful bright purple with pink sparkle in it. You can use it as a liner or a base for shadows which is beautiful.
Little Black Dress is black with pink sparkles in it. When I used this as a liner you can actually see the sparkles in it. This would be a great way to wear black liner with a little added pizazz!
Stila has won me over with this collection! I'm glad I got the palette. It's one of my favorite purchases recently! Great job Stila!
Have any of you had the chance to pick anything up from this collection? What are your thoughts on it? Definitely check it out if you haven't. It's a really fun collection!
Thanks for following, reading, and commenting! :-)
