Contouring? Strobing? Move over! There is a new trend in town, and that is colour correcting. It was around for some time but you know that it is official when it ends up on Sephora’s main page. I actually posted about some products already, such as BECCA, YSL and tarte but there are tonnes of others.

Recently I was talking a lot about lipsticks with some girls I work with, and this inspired me to wear a different shade each day for a month. I wear the same ones over, and over again but considering how many I have it was about time to change my habit. So here are the ones I wore last week…
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania (lip swatch)
I am obsessed with it, as you may know, I have to stop myself from wearing it every single day. It is the most perfect vampy (Hey, Drac! yes, I absolutely had to do it) shade. Whenever I wear it – I am always asked about it. The formula is not too drying and can be applied evenly. This is the most affordable product from the selection and there are tonnes of other colours in the line.
Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Boost (review and lip swatch)
Technically this is not a lipstick but, as the name suggests, it is pretty intense when layered so I’ve included it, too. It smells of sweets, feels moisturising on and is the most unique shade out of these all, a violet with a blue base, so beautiful.
This is my ultimateRead More
To be honest, I did not pay that much attention when it came to Stila in the past but recently things changed. I think the brand is killing it with the latest releases. Their Christmas collection was one of the best but I love the Spring 2016 products even more. There is nothing in this collection I wouldn’t want.
And The Impressionist name and blue background?! As someone who studied culture and arts at uni – I couldn’t love it more. What a perfect example of combining art and beauty, other brands should take notes. Also, I am really loving the new improved website. The looks featured are just so beautiful. Sarah Lucero, Stila’s Global Executive Director of Creative Artistry is a genius, I tell you.
All the looks above are gorgeous, right?
How, let’s take a look at the products:
Convertible Color Dual Lip & Cheek Palette – Sunset Serenade, $39/£29Read More
Stila’s Sealed With A Kiss Makeup Collection for Christmas 2015 really caught my attention. Especially with those gorgeous promo campaigns *inspiration alert*.
And which makeup do you like the best?
As for the makeup sets themselves, they are really-really good!
I personally like (and think of getting for myself) Eternal Love Liquid Lipstick Set ($20) which includes three mini lipsticks which, in my opinion, are some of the best in the industry (read my review). And you can’t really go wrong with mauve, red and berry. The shades are: Ricco, Beso and Baci.
There are two more lip sets. One with more liquid lipstick shades and one with the cult Stila glosses. I have actually bought a few sets several seasons ago for myself and friends.
Eternally Yours Liquid Lipstick Set ($39): Caramello, Patina, Aria, Como, Chianti and Fiery
Sealed With A Kiss Gift Set ($28): Pomegranate Sparkle, RubyRead More
Here is a preview of a one more Fall 2015 makeup collection. And this time it is Stila and their Modern Goddess collection.
The star of the collection have to be Got Inked Cushion Eye Liners, ($28)
Yes, the cushion formulas are here to stay! These are described as lightweight, yet richly pigmented liquid eye liners dispensed through a cushion soaked in colour. They are also long-lasting and budge-proof. There are both matte and metallic finishes.
The colours, as shown below, are: Smoky Quartz Ink, Copper Ink, Garnet Ink; Black Obsidian Ink, Blue Sapphire Ink and Amethyst Ink. How gorgeous do the garnet and sapphire shades look?
HUGE Extreme Lash Mascara, $23
It sounds all kinds of amazing ” For the biggest, boldest, blackest black lashes ever! With just one coat, you instantly get major volume, length, curl, lift and intense black colour. Go as bold as you want! Even with multiple coats, this flexible, buildable formula leaves lashes soft with no clumps, flakes, or fall out.”
