Huge Stila Haul and Review!

Hello beautiful!

As requested, I'm going to share with you what I recently ordered from stilacosmetics.com, one of my favorite high-end makeup brands! They have so many unique and innovative products that are raved about by other beauty bloggers and loved by millions worldwide. One of my all time favorite products from them is their Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner. I highly recommend you try this eyeliner out because it is by far the best liquid eyeliner on the market. Not to exaggerate, but if there was a tsunami and you used this eyeliner, I am 99% positive your eyeliner will still look flawless due to its impressive waterproof formula. For that reason, I decided to order another one on stilacosmetics.com. Now, you can purchase this wherever Stila products are sold (Sephora, Ulta, Macys, etc.), but since I was wasting hours browsing online stores, I decided to buy it online since I could also receive free shipping if I spent $50.00 or more. Since this was my first time ordering from their website, I did receive a 20% off discount!

Starting from the top left: Stila Hydrating Primer Oil-Free $34.00
Stila Natural Finish Oil-Free Makeup $38.00
Stila Brighten and Correct Concealer in Light $28.00
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Eyeliner in Black $20.00
Stila Smudgestick Waterproof Eyeliner in Periwinkle and Empress $20.00 each
Stila Prime Pot in Taffy x2 $20.00 each
Okay, let's just say 1 of the items I bought was necessary (I did run out of my other Stila Stay All Day Eyeliner) and the rest was impulse.
Stila Prime Pot in Taffy

I bought 2 of the prime pots because I knew my sister needed a new eye primer so I thought she would like to try this out! It is a nude color and acts as a blank canvas for eye shadow. It also prolongs the longevity of the eyeshadow's wear time. Unlike other pot primers I've tried before, this one has a more tacky formula and isn't super creamy. I do think it deserves it's fame as one of the best high end primers because it doesn't crease and stays put!

The Hydrating Primer is colorless, and is great for the colder months when my skin is a little more dry. It doesn't have a silicon feel that a lot of primers have which is both good and bad. I love how it's oil-free so it won't clog my pores and cause breakouts, but I do love the smoothness that silicon primers give to the skin. I love how both the primer and foundation are oil-free! I have oil-combination skin so these products are suitable for me!

Stila Brighten & Correct Concealer in Light
When I took this concealer out of its packaging, I was very disappointed to find that only 1/2 the container is filled. For $28.00, that's expensive! I purchased this because my Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat is similar to this product, but not as hydrating as I'd like it to be. I don't really have dark under-eye circles but sometimes some brightness is nice and refreshing!

Stila Smudgestick Waterproof Eyeliner
Left: Empress
Right: Periwinkle
I wanted a plain ol' white eyeliner that was waterproof so I chose Empress, but I'm not so sure if I like it's iridescent. Periwinkle is true to name and is really pretty! I saw a photo of someone with a muted blue eyeliner on, and I fell in love of how simplistic yet beautiful it looked!

I hope you enjoyed this haul and review, and today, I reached 15,000+ views! Thank you for reading and interacting with me and supporting my blog, it's amazing how far we've come!

Until Next Time,
xoxo
