Stila Smitten With Kitten Collection for Fall 2009

When Stila introduced the original pearlized Kitten eye shadow in 1997, Stila Girls everywhere scooped up the universally flattering pink champagne shade. And why not? Kitten was and continues to be all about soft playfulness. Well, this kitten has grown up, with three new makeup accessories to keep Stila Girls completely Smitten with Kitten. Introducing the new Smitten with Kitten collection containing a smudge pot, a lip glaze and a black cat smudge pot. Makeup that’s purr-fect for every occasion…

Kitten Smudge Pot ($20.00)

Our proprietary combination of pearls used to create Kitten are blended into a new Smudge Pot resulting in shimmering champagne. Wear it as an eye shadow primer, a shadow, liner or even a cheek and brow bone highlighter. Smudge-proof, water resistant, long-wearing and simply illuminating, day and night.

  • Stila Pro Artist Tip: Use as an eye shadow base primer to help any Stila shadow stay on longer. Dab on cheekbones or brow bone as a highlighter to add a subtly, sexy sheen.

Kitten Lip Glaze ($22.00)

This Kitten is written in the stars with a pouty gloss that shimmers like the finest champagne. Raise a glass to your lips for a sophisticated shine, or touch it over any Stila lipstick for a dazzling effect. Long-lasting, non-sticky formula, enriched with vitamins A, C and E to moisturize and smooth without feathering, is kissably gorgeous.

  • Stila Pro Artist Tip: Apply lightly for a sheer sparkling finish or add a second coat for a more color-intense shine that adds dimension and fullness to lips.

Black Cat Smudge Pot ($20.00)

Forget about the superstition when this black cat crosses your path. Like a little black dress and a flute of champagne, this black gel liner is infused with an unexpected blend of Kitten shimmer and can be used for lining the lashes or blending on the lids. Smudge-resistant, precise, modern and darkly lustrous.

  • Stila Pro Artist Tip: Use brush #28 to apply closely to the lash line and either a brush or finger to buff out color for a thicker look to lashes and a sultry look that lasts as long as you do!

NEW Lip Enamel Luxe Gloss ($22.00)

Stila’s NEW Lip Enamel Luxe Gloss made it’s debut on the fall 09 Fashion Week runways and
quickly became a makeup-artist obsession. Who wouldn’t be completely enamored with the
intense pigment, full coverage, long-wearing gloss that is ultra-shine, all the time? A formula like
no other looks like patent-leather on the lips. This high performance gloss is infused with life’s greatest luxury… happiness. The formula contains rhodiola rosea, a botanical extract known to improve mood, working to optimize serotonin and dopamine levels in the brain. One application and you’ll feel amazing almost instantly! Stila’s Lip Enamel Luxe Gloss puts a smile on your face with stunningly lacquered, boldly beautiful, richly conditioned, luxurious lips. Lip Enamel Luxe Lip Gloss, in six chic shades, also conditions and moisturizes with an exquisite blend of antioxidants, essential oils and phenolic compounds.

Temptalia Asks You

What hair styling tools do you use on a regular basis? Share!

Temptalia's Answer.

None on a regular basis, actually! The closest to regular would be a hair dryer.

Make Up For Ever #159 Eyeshadow

More blues?! Indeed!

  • #159 is a deep shade of cobalt blue. It’s almost like a blue meshed with violet. It’s absolutely stunning, and I’d consider it a must-have if you ever have an inkling to venture into blue (or you’re already in love). It’s extremely pigmented, smooth to the touch, and goes like a dream.
  • #167 is a shimmery, water-blue. It’s soft, pigmented, and has a nice sheen. It reminded me a lot of MAC’s Freshwater eyeshadow, actually.
  • #72 is a matte, bright medium blue. Sephora describes it as a turquoise, but I definitely don’t think there’s much turquoise, if *any* in it. It reminded me a lot of MAC’s Electric Eel eyeshadow, but not as bright–a little more toned down.
  • #118 is a light, sky blue. It’s really almost like a robin’s egg blue, actually. It has a matte finish, and it feels smooth and buttery. I’ve always been on the hunt for a good matte sky blue like this one.
  • #150 is a soft, pearly light blue with just a touch of silver sheen to it. It’s like a bluer version of MAC’s Surreal eyeshadow — and a lot less frosty. This is one of the better textures and pay off I’ve had with the brand’s shimmery shadows.

Which of these are your favorites?

NARS Fall 2009 Collectionicon is available at Nordstrom.com!

:) I’ve heard it is available in some stores locally, and you can always see if you can find a store nearby to pick-up at (order online, pick-up in store, y’know!), but nothing showed up in my area unfortunately.
