stila is smart, sexy and sophisticated makeup. We’re smitten…and glowing big-time because we just added this legendary cosmetics brand to our site!
Beloved by many, stila makeup shines at the intersection of high-fashion and innovative beauty. With NYFW collaborations with Rebecca Minkoff and Alice + Olivia (to name just a few!), awards from pretty much every publication you could shake a Smudge Stick at (more on this below), and the go-to brand for makeup artists, beauty bloggers, and everygirl cool across the land, you may be wondering where to begin, as by now we know you want to build your own stila makeup arsenal. Right?
So, if you’re new to stila, we got you. Scroll below to read reviews of the top 9 best-selling Stila makeup products:
“Smudge now, won’t budge later.”
No more searching in your makeup bag for a liner AND a shadow! The super easy-to-use stila Smudge Sticks are bestsellers because they pack a one-two punch: you can use them as a classic pencil liner for tight lining or as a smudgy eye shadow—simply smudge with your fingers or a brush before it sets. You honestly get an intense and immediate color payoff in a single swipe! Blessed with a cocktail of moisturizing ingredients, including vitamin E, the ultra-creamy application goes on very smooth (no tugging or pulling) and the waterproof formula has a soft finish that won’t move, crease or fade. Another plus is you don’t need a sharpener…simply twist and apply.
stila Kitten Eye Shadow
“Get smitten with Kitten.”
Yes, we’re smitten with Kitten. This shimmering nude pink shadow is an award-winning, long-lasting, easy-to-apply wonder that has its own cult following among top professional makeup artists. It’s a great neutral for an everyday look, or you can use it with other colors for that sultry, smokey eye you rock so well. The velvety texture and multi-dimensional shimmer also make it perfect for highlighting the brow and inner eye for a healthy glow. It has shimmer but it is not sparkly, so don’t worry—we promise you won’t look like you’re headed to a rave. Repeat after us: here, kitty, kitty!
“The bestselling “eye” do it all”
Take a look around the b-glowing office, and it’s clear we’re serious about brow power. Not to get too esoteric, but we think that brows are really an expression of who each of us is! This is an easy-to-use, waterproof brow color that stays on all day. With the specially-designed brush tip, this brush and color in one leaves your brows looking natural or defined—it’s up to you. It’s super easy to shape or define as you please, even for those non-expert, dash-and-go gal-pals out there. The formula glides on with ease; won’t smudge or run, and stays in place until you say when.
“It’s blush in a rush”
Another stila product that just gets women! Even those of us who totally have our ducks in a row have been caught running late to the office or a date from time to time. To make life easier, here is a portable, cream-based cheek AND lip color that gives the perfect hint of color on any skin type. It brightens cheeks while providing lips with a creamy, translucent color. Winner of Instyle’s Best Cream Blush Winner for 10 years. ’Nuf said.
A magic product that makes your skin look beautiful. Children of the 70’s, remember the song, You Can Do Magic, by America? Well, the lyrics, “you can do magic…you’re the one who can put out the fire,” kind of relates here. If the fire is redness, this product really does cover it up. It’s great for dry skin ladies because it’s moisturizing, and we love that it isn’t silicone based. The innovative, triple-swirled helix serum instantly color corrects, brightens and primes while moisturizing and nourishing the skin. stila’s exclusive Youth Revival Bio-Active Mineral Complex improves skin tone, evens out complexion and helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles over time. Did someone say, Poof?!
“Curated color compacts”
A 100% b-glowing approved concept, these stila palettes are inspired by the spiritual notion that true beauty is revealed from within. A stunning collection of four separate palettes—Mind, Body, Soul and Spirit—each is curated with 12 luxe eye shadows to illuminate your inner beauty! The instructive lookbook of tips and techniques is very helpful for seasoned (and soulful) shadow palette aficionados, or for those new to mixing it up. Learn how to blend and diffuse to create your own intense or soft lash look! The star-performing colors range from peaceful, soft hues to smoky shades. Go forth with the one that’s calling you!
So many colors, so little time—and with ten glorious shades to choose from, this right here is a lifetime of fun. Speaking of time, this creamy matte, full-coverage lip color delivers intense moisture with bold, long-lasting color and stays in place for up to 6 hours of continuous wear! So: kiss, convey, and consume with vigor as stila’s color-rich formula won’t not budge, bleed or transfer. The texture is weightless on lips and delivers superb comfort.
“Love at first swipe”
Ready to create an effortless, sassy cat-eye look? This is the liner you’ve been lusting for. Finally, a waterproof liquid liner that glides on with ease, won’t smudge or run, and stays in place until you say when! The thin marker-like tip is small enough that it’s easy to apply (without skipping), so doing a cat-eye shape isn’t a problem. We also love that the tip is retractable, so there’s no sharpening needed. Of course, it also delivers dramatic bold line with precision, for you extra-wild things out there.
We’ll be real: as beauty editors, our makeup bags can get a little…overcrowded. That’s why we’re big fans of 2-in-1s, like this foundation and concealer duo from stila. Its everything you need for complexion perfection —the silky foundation offers flawless coverage to even out your skin tone, while the built-in concealer provides targeted coverage for undereye bags, blemishes and more. Even better? The bottle has a built-in mirror, making it perfect for travel or on-the-go touchups. Say “so long” to makeup bag clutter!
