Stila Summer 2013 Collection: A Festival of Colors

Stila recently launched their Festival collection, a limited edition line of vibrant and very wearable shades for the eyes and lips. Tie-dyed colors and black light-responsive lip colors? I'm in!

With tie dye multi-use color pigments and black light-responsive lip colors, the collection brings new meaning to vibrant beauty. Reminiscent of the past but perfect for the present, these music festival must-haves can be worn every day.

These vibrant Countless Color Pigments offer full coverage, multi-use color pigments swirled with a unique tie dye effect. Created by a proprietary handmade pressing and baking process, these are the firsts of its kind! For the most intense payoff, use fingers or a foam-tip applicator to apply the shades individually, side by side, or mixed together for a multi-shade, streaked finish.

As you all have noticed, lipstick is a huge part of my life as I rarely wear makeup save for eyebrow pencil and my liquid foundation. I rarely wear eyeshadow, blush and eye liner and would rather sport a bright pink lip or a deep berry shade to compensate. You could say that I was easily drawn to the Stila After Glow Lip Colors (Php 795).

The After Glow Lip Colors come in dazzling shades that contain florescent pigments which are 3x brighter than conventional colors for vibrancy under the sun and a glow-in-the-dark effect under an ultraviolet black light. The formula offers medium, buildable coverage with staining properties for long-lasting wear. Algae extract, glycerin, sunflower seed oil and Vitamins C & E nourish and moisturize lips, while oat kernel extract soothes and calms. The creamy lip crayons each have an easy-to-apply consistency and a delicious cherry-flavored scent.
