Stila Festival

Thursday, June 07, 2012

Stila goes back in time with the launch of the Festival Collection, a limited-edition line of vibrant, yet wearable shades for eyes and lips. I'm a very festive person and I like music festivals so this really caught my attention with various colors and glow-in-the-dark effect. You know how I love this kind as I featured here and here! haha. I've never tried Stila but let's see!

Stila Countless Color Pigments (limited edition) 
SRP: PHP 995
Availability: Rustan's Department Stores
(+) Love the packaging and the artistic combination of pigments! Structurally it is swirled with a unique tie dye effect so it can easily make you use the different colors, but also allows blending.  
(+) Created by a proprietary handmade pressing and baking process, the first-to-market formula allows for endless looks, as each collage of color is a one-of-a-kind piece of art
(+) Various shades with interesting mix of colors. I wanted to get the red one which looks like Tequila Sunrise!The pink one also looks good with contrasting shades of yellow, blue and baby pink!
(+) very convenient packaging, perfect for busy people!
(+) Variety of shades: Indie, Finale, Lyric, Acoustic, Light Show, Groupie, Tie Dye
(+) Based on swatch, it has full coverage, multi-use color pigments 
(+) Consistency is ok with a semi-matte finish
Swatch of Stila Countless Pigments (mixed) - 2 coats, with flash
(+) for the most intense payoff, use fingers or a foam-tip applicator to apply the shades individually or, side by side like below.

(+) Can also be mixed together for a multi-shade, streaked finish
(+) I love that when used this way, the art on the product stays the same

(+) Good level of pigmentation with a brightening effect 
(+) I like that because it has different colors in the product, it provides a very unique shade of hue (like I've never had a type of green like this)

(+)  Not flat because of the combination of colors
(+) Not too heavy and can be easily spread in the eyes with a lightweight texture (+) Long-lasting color for hours
Overall, I love this set of mono shadows because it's very unique, handy and easy to use. Whether going for one color or a colored smokey eye, it gives a good color pay-off too! Very nice impression on the first Stila product I used!

Also in this collection is the After Glow lip color...
Check this out after the break.

Stila After Glow Lip Color(limited edition)
SRP: PHP 995
Availability: Rustan's Department Stores

The limited edition lip penciles has black light-responsive lip colors designed to dazzle by day and glow by night. They contain florescent pigments that are 3X brighter than conventional colors for vibrancy under the sun and a glow-in-the-dark effect under an ultraviolet black light. The rave-worthy formula offers medium, buildable coverage with staining properties for long-lasting wear. Algae extract, glycerin, sunflower seed oil and Vitamins C & E nourish and moisturize lips, while oat kernel extract soothes and calms. The creamy lip crayons each have an easy-to-apply consistency and a delicious cherry-flavored scent. Below are swatches of the After color pigment and the regular lipstick line.

I like the purple, pink and orange shades and can be dupes of MAC Heroine, Candy Yum Yum and Morange in a different texture. However, I like the coverage and consistency of the lipstick more than the after glow, but really depends on the effect that you would want. What do you think?
