Stila Spring ’09: Pomegranate Makes Perfect
The ingredient that health enthusiasts can’t stop talking about meets the products that Stila girls can’t bear to live without. This Spring, two of Stila’s bestsellers, the iconic Smudge Pot and the smash success Lip & Cheek Stain, get a pomegranate infusion that is both great for your skin and perfect for your style.
Define the eyes, pop the cheeks and perfect the pout with a deep plum hue that balances the light and airy looks of the season by giving the face a subtle richness and a natural flush.
Smudge Pot in Pomegranate ($20.00)
This limited edition deep plum shade defines and brightens the eyes. The long-wearing, highly pigmented Smudge Pot creates the precision of a liquid liner or wet shadow, with a soft, modern finish. A natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, pomegranate extract soothes the lids, and the comfortable light-weight gel is perfect for lining and blending.
Pomegranate Crush Lip & Cheek Stain ($24.00) (Sephora Exclusive)
Stila girls who have a crush on the multi-tasking Cherry Crush Lip & Cheek Stain will be thrilled to learn that their favorite spring fling has an equally as attractive friend coming to Sephora. Pomegranate Crush contains naturally staining pomegranate extracts that create the perfect hue of deep plum for both the lips and cheeks every time, using your personal pH level as its guide. And not only does this product have brains, but it endures. The formula moisturizes and protects the skin with antioxidants and Vitamins A, C and E and is perfectly pigmented for maximum staying power.
Available: February 2009

Yes to Carrots Frosty Loves C Holiday Set contains three of Yes to Carrots C Me Smile Lip Butters in Mint, Carrot, and Berry. There are two other flavors (not included), which are Citrus and Melon. I couldn’t actually find a retailer online which sold the holiday trio, but each of the lip butters retails for $3.69 at major drugstores/retailers (drugstore.com, Target, Walgreens, etc.). If you can snatch a few up on sale, even better! My favorite flavors are Berry, Carrot, and Citrus–Citrus probably being my numero uno (I adore lemony-scented products).
I love these tubes of lip moisturizing delight because they’re–duh–incredibly moisturizing, but they smell delicious. I also feel like I don’t have to reapply all the time, because my lips stay soft for quite awhile. As far as natural and organic products go, I’m pleased to be able to tell you that this product is certified as USDA organic. The brand doesn’t practice animal testing, nor do they use parabens, petroleums, or phthalates.

I got a chance to get an early sneak peek at some of YSL’s Spring 2009 treats comin’ at us this February! I played with Palette d’Artiste for the Complexion ($62.00), Gloss Pur #4 (Pure Raspberry), Rouge Pur #146 (Romantic Pink), and Nail Touch #5 (Tender Pink Touch).
I’m really lovin’ the Gloss Pur formula–it’s creamy, pigmented, and not sticky at all. I love me a good pigmented gloss! I’m not positive whether all of the Gloss Purs have no shimmer, but it’s nice to see a gloss that’s just gloss and shine without the shimmer. The creaminess of the lipstick is lovely, and the shade is a more wearable shade of bubblegum pink.
The Nail Touch #5 is an interesting product, as it was my first time trying out a nail polish pen. I liked the experience, and it makes for a great on-the-go nail polish. This shade in particular is incredibly sheer, coming out mostly as a sheer pink–nice for the office or for those looking for something super subtle.
I’m definitely looking forward to seeing the rest of this collection when it launches this spring!
