Stila Summer 2009- Of Smokey Golds and Bright Pink Lips

OK, so technically this isn't available on Stila's site yet, but what better way to whet your appetite than by feasting your eyes on the Stila Indian Summer Collection for 2009.

Made up of a quad, 3 glosses, bronzer, and a new limited edition smudge pot in 24 k (black with gold flecks), this collection brings to mind images of exotic India.

I was lucky enough to get a hold of 3 items from the collection at the Makeup Show.

Brilliant Pink Lipgloss comes housed in the famous Stila clicky tube. It is a cool, bright pink with noticeable gold flecks. This gloss is beautiful down to the little bindi jewel that adorns its packaging.


The 24 K loose mineral bronzer is a warm golden brown with subtle glitter. The packaging on this is fantastic, as you can twist the top to close the sifter and prevent spillage

Now the real star of this collection is the 24K smudge pot. I am a huge fan of the smoky eye, and this baby right here brings you instant bedroom eyes with sexy gold glitters. Think Mac's Black Ore Solar Bits but not as messy and with the ability to be sheered down or used as liner.

Swatches, cause I know you want 'em!

I definitely give it a big thumbs up!

Krasey Beauty said...

Valerie, thanks so much!! You definitely need the smudge pot ;)

jilliandanica said...

quick q, how does that smudgepot compare to mac's blitz n glitz?

Krasey Beauty said...

Jillian, I don't own blitz and glitz but from what I remember when I saw it, the smudgepot has chunkier gold glitter in it. Also, the gold becomes more apparent the more you smooth out the smudgepot :)

How do you get the shape of the smokey eye (the almond shape)?

Krasey Beauty said...

Chan, its a technique that I perfected with lots of practice. :)
