A few weeks ago Secret Sales had a Stila sale. I’ve always loved Stila products so I was quite excited to here they’ve relaunched but I guess this was a sale to get rid of some of their old lines although it’s quite easy to find Stila stuff on a lot of the discount cosmetic sites. I can’t really give you a rave review of secret sales.. if you have months and months to wait for your orders to arrive then I suppose it’s ok but otherwise it’s frustrating having to follow up orders and waiting, waiting and waiting
Anyway .. back to the important stuff.. what did I get!
So the first thing I got were 2 tinted moisturisers. I’m not a huge wearer of foundation and much prefer a tinted moisturizer, especially in the summer when it’s so hot. To be honest I’m not really too sure what the difference in these two products is other than the SPF factor. I find them both to be very similar, the one with the SPF 30 is oil free (SPF 30! how great is that)
I chose colors light 03 and light. As you can see in the following photo the light looks to be darker but when it’s rubbed in they are pretty much the same colour and it’s nearly impossible to tell them apart. Texture wise the SPF15 is a little more liquidy and the SPF30 gives slightly more coverage.
I also bought an eyeshadow palette, Stila Laguna Agate. It came with a blue agate necklace thing.. not really something I would wear but interesting touch.
I really love the colours in this palette
There’s a pale grey, a a really gorgeous teal blue and a darker bluey grey. The texture is really nice and smooth and they make a great blue smokey eye. There is also a blush colour which is a medium pink colour with a hint of sparkle
Next I got two lip products
First I got this shimmer gloss, it’s in the colour kitten, miaow! It’s very transparent on the lips and only leaves the sparkle. It has quite a sweet smell like vanilla caramel
I also got a lipstick
It looks quite dark in the tube but when worn it’s quite sheer and a nice shimmery pink colour
Here it is swatched on my hand! Aren’t the stars pretty!
All this came to
