Stila Cosmetics - Celebrating 20 Years & The Latest Must-Haves

I am a Stila girl for life.

Since 2009, I am have been captivated by everything Stila - from fragrances to effortless summer makeup, red carpet essentials to everyday go-to's. And there's nothing I love more than Stila Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Illuminating Beauty Balm. I will probably wear it for the rest of my days.

Stila celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. Pop. Clink. Fizz. Congratulations to one of the best beauty and cosmetic companies in the world!

To mark the occasion, here are my new favourite latest products:

This unique collection includes four palettes - Body, Mind, Spirit and Soul.

Inspired by the spiritual notion that "true beauty is revealed from within," 12 luxe eyeshadows come together to inspire you and bring out your natural beauty. 

Each shadow is named based on each palette. Mind for instance includes 11 matte shades and one with the teensiest bit of shimmer. Ranging from creamy white to rust, plum to deep charcoal, the names alone are sure to inspire you: Brilliance, Instinct, Reason, Imagination, Observation, Thinker, Genius, Wit, Creativity, Understanding, Perception, and Intellect. There's even a clear overlay with a quote from Albert Einstein - "The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination."

Every palette is vastly different - Spirit is soft and sparkly, while Soul sets the mood, and Body offers the boldest looks.  But each one offers soft powders to be used both wet and dry, shades to go from pre-dawn to past midnight, and is set in a stunning compact of rose, yellow and white golds blended together.

What a gift.

The ideal winter lip is here - say hello to the perfect mashup up of creamy lipstick, pigment for days, and intense moisture, most often found only in balms.

You need just one swipe across the top and bottom to achieve full colour with this heavy hitter. It delivers long-lasting bright, bold hues, finished in satiny bliss. Ooh, it feels amazing  - there's a cooling, tingly effect thanks to peppermint oil. And drenching your lips with hydrating mositure, you can kiss a dry pout buh-bye no matter how low the temp drops. 

Color Balm Lipstic is available in 19 dreamy shades from blazing fuchsia Betsey to spicy Natasha, with each one topped with a mirror cap, making touchups a breeze.

Your brows can change everything about how you look. Don't leave it to chance. Get Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Brow Colour.

This serious brow upgrade comes way of the Glam Rock Fall 2016 Collection inspired by the '70s, but delivers such a modern look, it could easily be based on today's trends.

Available in three new shades - Light Ash, Medium Warm, and Auburn - you can now achieve the most natural, precise look in the colour closest to your own hair.

The marker-inspired brush tip pen (similar to Stila Stay all Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner) delivers a soft look that results in full, finished, and defined brows.

While your skin and hair get conditioned with honey, aloe leaf and chamomile extracts, your new fuller, sexier brows are now smudge-proof and waterproof, so go ahead and slay all day - it will be one of the few things that you can count on.

As you get older, the more feathery and blurred the outline of your lips become.

They'll be defined as the rest of your makeup with this long-lasting, colour-full lip liner.

Available in eight wine-inspired shades (I'm currently rocking dusty rose Zinfandel), the semi-matte formula goes on creamy and smooth and yet once it's on, it's there to stay. Waterproof and long-wearing, go ahead and sip your Barbaresco, dig into that T-bone steak, or lay your lips on your crush once and for all  - it's not going anywhere.

And with lip conditioning antioxidants Vitamins C&E, your lips will remain smooth and silky, no matter how much friction comes its way.
