Oh, hey Stila, with your swanky new palettes! The Stila Eyes Are The Window Eyeshadow Palette above is one of four new Stila palettes – they’re heading our way later in the year – that have launched onto Ulta.com. This is a very ‘grown-up’ look for Stila, who favours the cardboard casing, and the palettes are to mark 20 years of Stila. Each palette comes with a look-book and that’s a very handy thing. Not everyone instantly knows how to get the best from a palette, so how-to look-books just make life much easier if that’s the case.
Stila has had quite a journey – founded by make-up artist, Jeanine Lobel in 1994, it’s had several owners since then. It was scooped up by Estee Lauder in 1999 (I will never, ever forget their wet-look coloured mascara, designed to ‘make you look as though you’d just been crying’ – err… ) and sold on twice since then, losing a little bit of soul each time. Stila made ‘milky’ glosses way before anyone else did and I still mark a Stila gloss among my forever favourites. I still think Stila need to find its personality again, but I’m rarely disappointed with any Stila products – I doubt I’ll be disappointed with the Stila Eyes Are The Window Eyeshadow Palettes, either, so I’m looking forward to swatching them up.
