    Stila’s Festival of Colour for Summer 2013

    Stila Strikes South Beach This Summer

    As soon as I discovered this Striking in South Beach palette, I fell in love. Over the holidays this past year, the Fabulous in Fiji palette was such a hit (I still use mine!) that Stila has decided to come out with a few more limited edition summer palettes this year. From July to October, a new palette will be released every month.

     

    I am loving the purple eyeshadow hue at the bottom right of the eyeshadow quad. It’s so gorgeous. To get a complete summer-ready look, this palette also has an adorable rosy blush and an essential South Beach-themed bronzer, which is totally new.

    But the absolute best part is that each palette has a “How To” face chart with pro tips from Stila‘s Global Director of Artistry, Sarah Lucero. So if makeup application isn’t always easy for you, you’ll be so grateful to have this little gem in your hands.

    I can’t wait to see the next palettes. I promise to keep you posted every month. Striking in South Beach ($18) will be hitting Shopper’s Drug Mart Beauty Boutiques and Murale on July 1, next week.

    Mother’s Day Gift Idea: Convertible Lip and Cheek Colour from Stila!

    I can’t believe Mother’s Day is already almost here. This Sunday, it’s time to spoil Mom and thank her for all the hard work she does every single day. I know we’re getting my fabulous Mommy some beauty goodies (which I can’t speak of right now because she reads this!).

    Why not surprise your mother with this amazing Convertible Lip and Cheek Colour from Stila? It’s a budget-friendly buy at only $33 (show above in Petunia) and because it looks just as great on the cheeks as it does on the lips, it’s the ideal gift for a mom on-the-go. It’s adorable, compact and super useful. I should know because I’m wearing it today in Gladiola (an orange colour – so hot!) Plus, I’m super addicted to cream blush these days. It just looks like second-skin.

    You can find this super versatile compacts for the woman who deserves to look gorgeous even though she’s pressed for time at Shopper’s Drug Mart Beauty Boutiques. What will you be getting your mother this Sunday? Beauty goodies? Do tell!

    Spring 2011: Light Up the World With Stila Cosmetics

    If the au naturel look is what you’re looking for then you won’t want to miss out on Stila‘s new spring collection. Focusing on an ethereal glow, the new Stila Cosmetics collection is the perfect way to brighten up your face without looking like you have tons of makeup on. It’s very light, shimmering and natural. I have been steering you into the matte direction this past winter but when the warm weather hits, it’s all about shimmering makeup to highlight your skin (and maybe highlight your golden tan, too).

    The All Over Shimmer Duo in Kitten ($29) is one of those versatile items you’ll be grateful for this summer. It can act as eyeshadow, blush or highlighter powder for the cheekbones and brow bones. I have one and it leaves my skin with an illuminating glow that compels people to complement my “perfect” skin. They don’t know it’s the powder doing the work but really, who cares? No one needs to know. I’m perfectly happy with being complimented.

    The Silk Shimmer Gloss in Sunlight ($29) is what I like to call the ultimate summer gloss. Shimmer? Check! Bronze undertone? Check! A little tip, any bronze shimmering gloss will highlight a tan and give your skin a more golden appearance. When I get a nice tan, I refuse to wear anything else. I’m headed to Jamaica in a couple of weeks (yay!) and you can be sure this is coming with me. I like this gloss because it has the high-shine finish I expect from a gloss without the nasty sticky factor, which I think we can all do without. I actually wore this gloss yesterday. No, I’m not tanned due to this horrible winter but it made me feel like spring was somewhat closer.

    While the thought of simply moving away to a tropical country has crossed my mind millions of times this morning alone, I know that if that doesn’t work out, I can always turn to some summery products to fool me into thinking it’s nice out. And after a few months of a sunless winter, my skin tends to start looking a little drab. It needs a little refresher and Coconut Crush ($32) is perfect for that. This summer, this product is going to be my BFF (if I have any left by then!). It’s a cheek and lip stain and it’s perfect for adding colour, depth and a radiant glow to the skin. I prefer to use it on my cheekbones to refresh my look and give me a sun-kissed glow.

    The entire Stila Spring Collection, which includes some other fab must-haves is available at now at Shopper’s Drug Mart Beauty Boutiques.

    Last-Minute Gift: Fabulous in Fiji by Stila

    You’re really cutting it close if you haven’t finished your shopping just yet because Christmas Eve is tomorrow!! Luckily, Stila can easily solve your problems. Avoid the uber-packed malls and head over to Pharmaprix / Shopper’s Drug Mart or one of their Beauty Boutiques for the Fabulous in Fiji Travel Palette from Stila ($13).

    With three shades of blue eye shadow, one silver must-have shade and a plum cream that can easily be used as lip gloss or blush, your giftee will be over-the-moon when she unwraps this. If these colours don’t work for your friend, don’t fret. There are five different Limited Edition Travel Palettes for you to choose from.

    The best part? Stila’s top-quality products (that are sure to make your on-the-go pal praise you) is easy on the budget. Finding an amazing gift only two days before Christmas without breaking the bank? You just can’t ask for more than that. At this price, you may even want to pick one up for yourself.

    Happy Holidays beauty lovers! Thanks for making this year a success for Beauty Booty 4-1-1. Best wishes for 2011!

    Stila Limited Edition Holiday Lip Glaze Set

    Sets that give you more bang for your buck always make excellent gifts. Your giftee gets an amazing gift and you don’t have to go broke at the same time.

    Stila’s limited edition Lip Glaze Set is valued at $158 but only retails for $33. With 8 shimmering, shining lip glosses, what more could you ask for? The set includes 4 classic shades and 4 all-new ones. From understated Apricot (my current fave, which I am wearing today) to Majesty, a deep juicy berry, there’s a shade for every occasion in here.

    These glosses are also great if you’re looking for lip glosses for yourself. The kit has got you covered from A to Z. The darker shades, which are still understated, are perfect for family get-togethers and the barely-there shades will perfectly complement intense eyes.

    For NYE, I’m all about a smoky eye. But when your eye is the focus, your lips need to be less flashy and they absolutely need an elegant finish. (Going completely bare isn’t a very good solution because it makes you look unfinished.)

    As you can see in my photo, that’s exactly what I decided to do for my engagement party. I went all out on the eyes and I just needed a soft glaze on my lips to finish off the look without taking away from the smoky eye. I think the combo worked well.

    This holiday season, whether you decide to spoil a gal pal or spoil yourself (which I fully believe in doing from time to time) Stila’s Limited Edition Lip Glaze Set should be on your must-have list. Pick up your set at a Pharmaprix / Shopper’s Drug Mart Beauty Boutique today.
