Stila Make Up- Spring/Summer Event and Product Review, Have You Tried It?


Stila is a brand I wasn't too familiar with I have to say until recently. I have one item in my makeup stash prior to attending the Spring Launch in Harvey Nichols in Dundrum with my fellow blogging ladies. The one product that I did have was a trio of Lip glosses and I do like them but we all know I am not a huge gloss fan.

I made the assumption that Stila because it’s based in HN would be too expensive for me, that I'd never be able to afford it so I felt like attending the event was complete luxury to me. I'm all for good high end makeup but we are currently obsessed with looking for bargains and dupes of the high end products.

There was a whole load of blogging beauties at the event and it was a lovely atmosphere some of the ladies I haven't seen in so long so we were all having a great chin wag before the start. The girls from Stila were mad busy hosting the same event in a different part of the store so we were all discussing what we knew about the brand and what we didn’t! I really didn't know much and the excitement for me just grew.

The evening was hosted by Sascha Jackson, Stila UK’s Lead Pro Artist and Trainer who is based in London. Sascha worked on her beautiful model showcasing all the new products and also some of their staples and my hand was writing a mile a minute making a whole new shopping list. The products just looked amazing. They were high quality and we passed them around between us and there was a lot of Ooh’s & Aahh’s as we drew on our hands to sample the products. Elaine from Ruby Laine beside me created eyebrows and a winged liner eye on her hand, mine just ended up looking like a right mess haha! 

Some of the new products to be showcased on the night were;

Stila Stay All Day Precision Glide Brow Pencil (5 shades) €21.50
Stila Stay All Day Brow Gel (5 shades) comes with brush €37
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Brow Colour (3 shades) €21.50
Stila Shape & Shade Custom Contour Duo (3 shades) €41
Stila Contour Brush €43
Stila Lush Lips Water Plumping Primer €21.50
Stila Nude Interlude Colour Balm Lipstick €21.50

So as you can imagine looking at all these newbies, the list was just growing but for me the real focus was on the 3 Step Primer and the Stay All Day Foundation (this foundation is brilliant, it even comes with a concealer on the top of it) There is also the Beauty Balm which you can mix into the foundation for that classic spring/summer dewy finish and I was totally sold!

Another product we saw on the night was the new eye shadow palettes. These will retail at €39 and contain 12 shades and just looked amazing! I have that on my list also, the Spirit palette you can see here in my picture…it will be mine, just look at those shades!!!

The model was stunning, her finished look was flawless without looking plastered, it was fresh and pretty and perfect for spring and summer so when I left and saw I had been gifted one of the new brow colour pens and a cream blush in a beautiful orange/pink colour I was delighted. 

Cream blush is something that was absolutely terrified me, much like liquid liner but this when applied with a damp beauty blender is just fantastic. I have been practicing on my days off and really think I have it now to create a soft subtle hint of colour. The brow pen I received is always in my handbag, it’s perfect for my work days when I just want to fill in my little gaps and make my brows look more finished without looking heavy. 

I had a really good look at the products after the event and was making mental notes of all I wanted to get. This always happens when I go to events I just want everything! I made sure to go back and meet with Manager Sue about a week later when I was in Dundrum and I got skin match with the Stay All Day Foundation. Sue took off all my face makeup and created a beautiful look on my face. She was very good, we had words over my love of powder due to my fear of a shiny face and she assured me that I wouldn't need powder. We joked about it and I said I’d be straight down to her if I felt shiny. It’s all the wonderful ingredients in the One Step Primer and the Stay All Day Foundation that allows your skin to breath and not become clogged and needs to get all the oil out as you wear the makeup. I attending a different event on the top floor of Dundrum that evening and loved my makeup!! I was so happy I didn't feel weighed down with powder and that I looked healthy with a lovely glow as opposed to a shine.

I must be have been no stop talking about Sue & Stila as I woke up on Valentines morning to this wonderful treat….

I was so spoiled by J and delighted to be the proud owner of the One Step and the Stay All Day Foundation. I wanted the no.5 foundation which is a perfect shade for my tanned looks but now I really want to get a lighter shade no.3 which Sue matched to my skin as I’d happily wear Stila every day. We all know the plight of trying to find a foundation we are happy to wear and I can safely say, the One Step and Stay All Day combination on my face is working really really well!!

If you haven't tried Stila and get an opportunity to find a counter or even if you are ever popping to Dundrum, Sue is amazing in HN Dundrum and she will help you find wonderful products. I am excited to try more of Stila very soon so keep an eye on the blog.

Any questions please do get in touch as always!
