Stila Cosmetics Summer 2016 - Effortless New Makeup, Flawless Results

Stila Cosmetics is one of those lines that once you try it, you'll be hooked.

Founded in 1994 by makeup artist Jeanine Lobell, Stila has been creating products that enhance your beauty without covering it up for over 20 years. Simple solutions and shades transform your skin, your look, into what you had always dreamed it could be.

From HD Beauty Balm to All Day makeup, Stila makes your skin glow without shining, and stun without ever looking like you're wearing much at all.

It's the most natural looking makeup without making you look bland or washed out.

Here's a peek at two NEW products for summer:

- Stila Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye & Cheek Palette 

Neutral cosmetics can be such a bore. And if left to your own devices, you can end up looking quite flat, full of beiges and browns.

That's why you need the Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye & Cheek palette, available in four shades, made to match your skintone:

- Fair/Light
- Light/Medium
- Medium/Tan
- Tan/Deep

Each palette contains five eyeshadows and two blushes in matte, shimmer and pearl finishes, so you can change your look in an instant without having to rummage around your stash for corresponding colours.

For a natural or day look, use the palette closest to your skintone. For a bolder look, choose a palette one or two shades darker.

Each product is made to last (because who has time for touchups with this schedule?) and takes just a quick swipe across eyes and cheeks to add a shot of colour.  Silky, satiny triple-milled powders and mica make it a breeze to get smooth application every time, so forget about primer, creases and smudges.

And yes, I do mean colour. While "nude" products crowd the cosmetic shelves, Stila shades stay true to their word and deposit colour, not some weird shade that is supposed to look natural but instead looks orange or just plain dull. With 78% pigment saturation, colours stay vivid. Because who wants to blend into the background? Just because you are going with a neutral palette doesn't mean you have to look like it.

And the large square compact is festooned with a gold leopard print that is so pretty (and this having never been a fan of the usual yellow and black version), you simply have to leave it out on the counter.

The NEW Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye & Cheek Palette is available at Shoppers Drug Mart, Murale, Sephora and online at and

- Stila Stay All Day Foundation

One of the brand's classic products just got a whole new look. 

The signature gold bottle that you know and love now features a new dispenser that distributes just the right amount, making application so much easier.

Press on the wide top and the perfect amount springs out from the centre. Settling in on the wide base, it's now easy to access and apply using your sponge, brush or fingertips.

Stay All Day Foundation is a great antidote to all those sheer foundations that don't offer enough coverage. Oil- and fragrance-free, you get medium-to-full matte coverage that isn't going anywhere. This is especially important on days when temperatures rise to uncomfortable degrees.

But don't think that means your skin has to suffer and suffocate. Oh no, your skin gets long, deep breaths thanks to the built-in oxygenating technology. Loaded with botanical extracts such as ginseng root and gingko biloba leaf, and a whack of antioxidants, you skin gets evened out, pores disappear as do those fine lines and other flaws.

It's not just makeup - it's full-on skincare too.

The NEW Stay All Day Foundation is available at Shoppers Drug Mart, Murale and


Stila you rock my world.
