One Step Illuminate ($36.00)

This innovative serum instantly illuminates, primes and nourishes the skin to improve tone and texture, diminishing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The oil-free formula features Stila’s revolutionary Youth Revival Bio-Available Mineral Complex. It melts into the skin and dries down to hydrate and balance while controlling oil production. One Step Illuminate contains a swirl of three illuminating bronzers (pale pink, champagne & Kitten).

Stay All Day Waterproof Volumizing Mascara ($22.00)

This innovative waterproof mascara contains a unique polymer with an extremely high resistance to water for the ultimate in long-wear performance. Unlike other waterproof mascaras, Stay All Day Waterproof Volumizing Mascara leaves lashes soft and protected without smudging, budging or flaking. The rich, buildable formula contains a conditioning agent, coconut oil and antioxidant-rich mango butter. A unique 3D brush with three rows of combing bristles expertly applies a generous coat of mascara for dramatic volume and lift, to lengthen and define each lash.

Baked Setting Powder ($34.00)

Developed using a unique baking technique, these sheer, lightweight setting powders are velvety soft. One to illuminate, one to mattify, and one to bronze – each 3-in-1 compact comes with a mirror and an ingenious shaver that evenly distributes three different shades, mixing them into a fine, silky powder for easy application. The luxurious formulas contain Vitamin E, antioxidants and jojoba oils to moisturize and condition skin while providing beautifying benefits.

  • Set & Illuminate Powder Three brightening powders (pale pink, champagne & Kitten) containing specialty pearls and pigments illuminate cheekbones, under eye brows and/or décolleté
  • Set & Correct Powder Three color-correcting powders (peach, green & lavender) color-correct and mattify skin – the combination brightens and evens skin tone, setting makeup with a flawless, satin finish
  • Set & Bronze Powder Three bronzing powders (matte bronze, Kitten shimmer & bronze shimmer) give skin the appearance of a healthy, natural, sun-kissed glow

Passion Fruit Crush Lip & Cheek Stain ($24.00)

Stila’s latest “crush” creates a beautiful blush red shade with just the right amount of subtle shimmer for lips and cheeks. The formula contains vitamin-rich passion fruit extracts to soften and nourish the skin and antioxidants to help neutralize the harmful effects of free radicals.

Self-Adjusting Bronze Custom Color Blush ($20.00)

The newest addition to Stila’s Custom Color Blush family, this perceptive one-shade-fits-all powder blush comes in a natural bronze hue, with a hint of shimmer for a customized sun-kissed summer glow. The innovative powder blush reacts to each individual’s pH to create a perfect, personalized shade with its unique one-shade-fits-all technology. This blendable velvet-soft formula smoothes the appearance of fine lines and imperfections to leave the skin with a luminous, flawless flush.
