Eye Shadow -Stila -Kitten

foto

Mine broke early on within the container so i have it as a loose powder within the pot. I rarely use it because it does take a lot of effort to even out and ensure both eyes are equally frosty. It can gather in chunks/scales somehow - I am in my late twenties and still find this to be an issue. It looks really pretty when put all over with a brown crease/outer v thing and stark black liquid liner. The problem is the difficulty of use, as compared to other shadows of the same type (highlighter/base types). The colour itself is cute.

Eyeliner -Stila -Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner - Spice

I have repurchased this so many times over the years, I have lost count. I swatched it on the back of my hand years ago and was so impressed at how it barely budged when I rubbed away at it after it dried, and I haven't looked back since. I have also bought this in several other colours, and all are fantastic.

I have oily eye lids, so a lot of liners and eyeshadows tend to crease, stray, smudge or disappear on me. I also prefer brown liners over black because black on my lower lash just looks really harsh and always make me look bloodshot. This one lasts all day (with the help of quick layer of mattifying powder first, and then eyeshadow underneath), is easy to apply and easy to remove with just micellar water. It's also a really beautiful shade of brown that I don't see often, it's a lovely matte warm dark brown with a teeny hint of burgundy. However, it isn't as blendable and creamy as much as I'd like, but not enough for me to really have an issue with it.

I only have one criticism, which is the packaging. I actually threw away my first smudge stick because I thought it was broken since it looked like it wasnt coming out. I don't like that I can't retract it, so I can't see how much I have left and when it finishes, it always catches me off guard.

MAC Technakohl Liner in Photogravure or Brownborder is also a great alternative. They're pretty much the same price, but just slightly different shades of matte dark brown. Would 100% recommend and repurchase.

Crème -Stila -Lingerie Souffle Skin Perfecting Color

Ah.. Many people seem to be disappointed about this one but not me!
I was really excited to own it against so many negative reviews and decided to go for it.

First, the packaging... very luxury jar and nice to have on your vanity. I'm deducting half a lippie here as I also want it to be travel-friendly.

The shade ranges are .. horrible if you ask me. I was lucky enough to have found one that quite matched my skin tone, which is shade 1.0 (I'm about NC20-25, warm undertone). And like some few other foundations, it oxidizes. I gave it time to dry out to make sure it matches my skin tone.

The texture is mousse-like, no strong scent , has some tiny shimmering particles which I don't see it when I look into the jar by my naked eyes. But I can see it when I tried it on the back of my hand. I tried it either by wiping/blending or patting it. But I found I like the result of patting it in as it gave me very sheer luminous finish and I could feel molecules of water breaking and absorbed into my skin. Those shimmery particles still there if I really put my effort into seeing it.

When I apply it to my face, I use my hands and fingers, starting with a small area, pat it in on the area that I want a sheerer coverage, wipe/blend on the area that needs more coverage. No primer needed. It blurs my pores, evens out my skin, very lightweight. Lumimous finish without any traces of foundation. (I still cannot define whether this one is a foundation or tinted moisturizer or somewhat...). I still need some concealer for my acne scars area anyway.

It's comfortable to wear, no heavy feeling, no oil controling as well. Lasts for 5-6 hours. No breakouts or allergies.
And the price is affordable.

All in all, it can do what it claims, so I'm satisfied with it in overall. I will repurchase it definitely !! (if there are nothing new that attracts me more :P)

Powder -Stila -Perfectly Poreless Putty Perfector

I absolutely LOVE this product ! I chose the light shade & it’s a perfect match . My skin looks smoothe , buildable coverage & has a matte finish . I did not like the sponge so I’m using a foundation brush . I pray they don’t discontinue any time soon . No need for foundation / concealer anymore .

Eye Shadow -Stila -Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow

I actually think this liquid shimmery shadow is really hard to blend. I tried it out in kitten, grace and twig. The lighter colours were ok, it is pigmented and looks beautiful. But the blending is rly a bitch. It also sets in with lots of creases.
