Stila for Holiday 2015

If you are still shopping for the holidays, I don’t envy you! Last minute, much?! I shouldn’t talk, because we officially finished our shopping last night with a few of Mike’s purchases. If you are looking for some beauty gifts this week, Stila has you covered with a few of their adorable gift sets!

The Trust in Love Giftable Set has the most adorable packaging that looks like a large, magnetic envelope with a wax seal. 

stila trust in loveInside are twelve eyeshadows in varying color-rich matte, pearl and shimmer shadows, a deluxe-size HUGE Extreme Lash Mascara, and a deluxe-size Lip Glaze in Apricot.

stila huge extreme lash mascaraI was really impressed by this set! After ooh-ing and ahh-ing over the eyeshadows I wanted to check out the mascara. It provides length, volume and curl. I thought the applicator looked familiar, and I think what it reminds me of is Too Faced Better than Sex mascara. This mascara applies really wet and I need to separate my lashes after wards with a spoolie but it looks fantastic on! It really makes my lashes pop. It lasted several hours on me then got a little flakey. Our weather here has been all over the map and my allergies are a little bit out of whack so it might be partially my fault that I was wearing the formula under my eyes by the end of the day. Either way, I’m looking forward to using the tube up to see how I like it over time.

Another set I’m enjoying is A Whole Lot of Love Giftable Set. The same gorgeous packaging is available here. I don’t think you’d even have to wrap a gift that already looked this pretty! Inside you are getting 20 matte, pearl, and shimmer eye shadows, 4 shades of blush, and a deluxe-size HUGE Extreme Lash Mascara. There is a really nice assortment here, with lots of pretty neutral shades and a couple bright and gorgeous shades (check out that blue!)

Last but not least, the Sending My Love Giftable Set. This one is my favorite. If you know me well, it’s because…purple! You are getting an eyeshadow palette with some of my favorite shades to wear, a face palette with blush, bronzer, and highlighter, a deluxe Lip Glaze in Guava, and a full-size eyeliner in Stingray

I know this was kind of a quick rundown of the Stila holiday sets but I want to say that the shadows are all smooth and pigmented and with primer I get about 6 hours of wear time before they start to fade. There are some truly pretty shades available and the prices are killer. I am obsessed with their eyeliner. I use their liquid liner all the time, but their twist up version in Stingray is really something special as well! Their lip glaze is a cult classic but I’m not much of a gloss girl. I am most excited about Sending my Love and I’m wearing it in the picture below! If you’ve ever been curious about Stila, now is the time to check them out. 

Sending my Love– $72 value for $49- marked down to $34.

Trust in Love- $108 value for $40- marked down to $28!

A Whole Lot of Love- $225 value for $59!
