Countless Color Pigments by Stila

It’s funny how time flies when you are having fun with makeup! Last year I attended The Makeup Show Chicago and I stopped by the Stila Cosmetics booth to paly with some products and have a little fun.

I remember as if it were yesterday, the brand had recently launched their Countless Color Pigments. I had seen them in Sephora but I had not had time to test the colors. Luckily for me, the Stila team was ready to take action and play.

Because of the marbled effect with the product, at first glance, I wondered what the heck do I do with this stuff? Do I wear it as a shadow or blush? Do I utilize all the colors or do I just try one? Are there different ways to use this or not? My mind was spinning with so many questions and I couldn’t wait to find out the answers.

One of the makeup artist said it’s simple to use, you just, “blend, swirl and swipe on your eyes or cheeks. You can use it as a shadow or blush and you can use one color, a few colors or custom build your own.” Bingo, ding, ding ding another multifunctional product, I hit the jackpot! So with that said, let me give you The Glam, The Slam and my final grade.

The Glam: This is the multifunctional product of all multifunctional products! The Color Pigment is a beauty goldmine! As the makeup artist stated, you can use this as a shadow or blush. You can use one color or several as well as custom blend your own. This product not only allows you to use it in many different ways, it allows you to be creative and sort of become your very own product developer by blending, swirling or swiping! YES…I am here for this! Can you say #winning? Oh yeah, the colors last long, they don’t crease and they offer great pigment just like the name states.

The Slam: Although you can create your own shade of colors, you may not be able to recreate it on the opposite eye or cheek. And most importantly, that super stunning look you just created today, you may not be able to replicate it tomorrow or next week. Insert sad face here >>>:-(

My final grade for the Countless Color Pigments by Stila Cosmetics is 4.5 out of 5 smooches…MUAH. I love this product but I want to be able to recreate a fly look from last week and in the future…IJS. If you are interested in purchasing the product, head over to stilacosmetics.com Sephora or Ulta. They are available in eight shades and they are on sale now for $8.00 only on stilacosmetics.com. Happy blending, swirling and swiping!

Stila Lippie Love or Nah?

A few months ago I opened one of my beauty box subscriptions and I found a little red sample of Liquid Lipstick in Beso by Stila Cosmetics calling my name! And since red is my signature color, I had to answer, try it and review it…all in that order. LOL

I tried Stila last year for the very first time and it has become one of my top beauty brands. In case you are new to the brand, let me make the introduction. Ladies, please meet Stila Cosmetics, a brand that believes you create your own rules when it comes to beauty. They encourage you to be your own makeup artist and celebrate your individual style. OMG, I so love that statement because they encourage you to be unique with your beauty and create your own rules. And what’s not to love about that?

So now that you have been properly introduced, let me give you the Glam it or Slam it!

The Glam: The first thing I have to say is…I love the color. It’s not your usual red; it has an orange undertone. And if you did not know, an orange lippie is what’s hot for Spring! The funny thing is, I usually don’t care for a red orange lipstick, I prefer a red blue but this was just beautiful when I applied it. It’s called Liquid Lipstick and I can see why. It has a velvet finish that is creamy with a bold color. It is long lasting; you can eat and not have to reapply…WINNING! This Liquid Lipstick will not bleed all over your lips or rub off on your drinking glass. It’s infused with amazing ingredients like Vitamin E and Avocado Oil, which keeps your lips from feeling dry and crusty. This color is perfect for all skin tones but if red isn’t your color, that’s okay because there are seven more shades to choose from.

The Slam: Wait for it…wait for it…NOT ONE THING!

My final grade is 5 out of 5 smooches…MUAH! The Liquid Lipstick in Beso by Stila Cosmetics is my new lippie love for Spring 2014! If you are interested in purchasing the new lippie love of my life, head over to Sephora or stilacosmetics.com and purchase it for $22. Happy Shopping!!! MUAH

Glam it or Slam it?

A few weeks ago I opened one of my beauty box subscriptions and I found a little red sample of Stila calling my name! And of course, I had to try it because after all…red is my signature lip color ;-).

But before I give you my review and final grade, I want you to tell me if this color is a Glam it or a Slam it? What are your thoughts??? Do I Glam it up and rock the red or Slam it down and never wear it again? My inquiring mind wants to know!
