Ok so maybe not the most clever of titles, but I just had to share with you my amazing "steal" of Stila Cosmetics I recently got. I was browsing through my local TKmaxx when I came across these beauties thrown to the back of one of their beauty and haircare shelves.
Stila is a brand which I don't usually venture into, but i've heard such good things about their products, and at such discounted prices I just had to give them a go.
So heres what I got:
Stila Sheer Color SPF15 Tinted Moisturizer - Warm
I Really like this, It's unusual in the fact that it feels quite thick when you first apply it to the face but it then blends out to a (as the name suggests) sheer coverage, so it's good for those days when you don't feel like applying foundation but you just want a quick touch of colour and coverage.
I got it in "warm" as the only other colour option was almost white, I realise it looks about 10 shades to dark in this swatch but that's partly to do with the lighting. It blends out into a pretty nice colour. The Stila tinted moisturizer's retial at £22, I got mine for £4.99 Bargain!!
4 Eye shadow pans in Viola top L, Cloud top R, Hint Bottom L and Barefoot Contessa Bottom R
I was really excited to see lots of eye shadow pans, although the colours were all very similar (warm berry tones and lighter silvery hues,) I didn't really mind, as they're the sort of colours I go for. These were the 4 I picked out and i'm really pleased with them, their fab quality and I love that their all fairly matte with only a touch of shimmer, and "hint" is totally matte which would provide a nice, flat base.
They all came nicely packaged and wrapped, and none were cracked or damaged. And for £2.99 each, down from their RRP of £11 a pop, I'm very Pleased!!
If only there was a cute Stila compact Quad to put my new eyeshadows in?..... There was!! :D
Stila 4 pan Compact
I was so pleased to find this compact siting on one of the shelves, The bases are magnetised so the shadows stick straight in and don't fall out. I was wondering what to do with the 3 eye shadows i'd picked out and where I could store them. Then I saw this, immediately grabbed another shadow and was a very happy bunny! (is it sad to be happy about makeup??... oh well!) The compact was £3.99 down from £12 which is another great save.
It was so fun finding these, it was like finding treasure!! if your not near a TKmaxx look online for cheaper Stila Cosmetics too!
