It's my day off and I've been lazing around in my track pants, snacking and waiting for a FedEx guy to knock on my door. A couple of weeks ago I ordered my very first gratis (yay!) from Clinique and ever since then I have been impatiently waiting for it to arrive. I checked the status of my order every day and when I finally got an email on Friday saying it had shipped I was sure it would come Monday. And I was right! I can't wait to try all my new products and share my reviews!
On another note, working in the cosmetics department of Sears has given me some odd cravings. I still get a hankering for donuts every once in a while but being around cosmetics all the time has me wishing for new eye shadows and lip glosses more often. So after checking out the selection in the department I decided to head over to Shoppers to take a look at their brands. My "local" Shoppers is 2 bus rides away from my house and I go to that location over somewhere closer because of their selection. Not only do they have brands like Benefit and Bourjois but now they have Stila! So, after a couple of laps around the Beauty Boutique I settled on Stila's Backstage Eye Shadow Palette to satiate my eye colour craving.
I love how pigmented these shadows are and the range of looks that can be created! I like blending lustre (shimmering teal), chiffon (deep blue) and flamingo (pinkish purple) for a colourful eye and pairing it with a glowing complexion and soft pink lip.
Another thing I love to do is mix products from different cosmetic lines to create unique looks. The colours in the Backstage Palette go wonderfully with my Nars Blush in Orgasm (a universally flattering soft pink shimmer) and Clinique Butter Shine Lipstick in Pink Beach (a nude pink shade with the soft look of a gloss). The Stila Backstage Palette is keeping my eye looks fresh and interesting but when one craving is extinguished another is never far behind...
I have my eye on the Lancome Juicy Tubes Holiday Set for my next cosmetic purchase. :) What do you think of Stila`s products? I'm fairly new to the brand so I'd love to hear about some of your fav products!
