From about September time, you’re going to notice some big changes with Stila. I love all its cuteness, but after 20 years, maybe it’s time that Stila grew up. I posted last week on the Eyes Are The Window To The Soul palettes that are available in Ulta stores, but had a chance to see them for myself a few days ago.

Here are the four palettes that will be heading our way. I’ve got one all swatched up and have to say, the texture is lovely – not at all chalky and great pay off.

Stila Palette Soul
Stila Palette Spirit

The four palettes are called Mind, Body, Soul and Spirit – above is Spirit, a collection of Stila’s most iconic shades from the past 20 years. Everyone is probably all done on neutral palettes now, so I think this is the best in terms of having neutral elements but something a little different, too, such as the wine shade and a gorgeous rose-gold.

Spirit

I’m quite pleased because although this might not look like the best swatch in the world, the sun came out just as I was taking it and lit up a couple of the colours so that you can see they have some proper glimmer to them. They’re so soft and there’s a rose-gold shade in Spirit that I am wearing already. Speaking of rose gold, that’s the way the packaging is shaping up to look for the palettes, so far.

The new theme is carried on through glosses and mascara so far, but gradually, the entire collection will end up in this theme. I’m going to be rather sorry to say goodbye to the Stila girl, but excited that Stila is a new phase of beauty and can’t wait to see how this evolves.

Stila’s New Look Palettes and Glosses will be available from September/October time.
