Stila for Beauty.com @ Alice + Olivia S/S 2012

Stila @ Alice + Olivia S/S 2012

Sarah Lucero, who is a Stila Pro Artist for Beauty.com, created the look at Alice + Olivia today. She used (all Stila products) One Step Correct, Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer, and Brighten & Correct Concealer on the face. For the eye, she used In the Garden Eyeshadow Palette, Mystic Eyeshadow, Electric Sparkle Eyeliner, and Aquamarine Jewel Eyeshadow. The models had to keep their eyes closed for a minute or so to allow the liquid eyeliner to dry. She used Gerbera Convertible Color on cheeks with Lillium Convertible Color on lips. To finish, she used Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner in Intense Black along the upper lash line, Glamoureyes Mascara on lashes, and Topaz Kajal Eyeliner on the lower lash line.

OCC Extravaganza Nail Lacquer

OCC Extravaganza Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as “rich pink/coral with gold shimmer overlay.” It’s a pinked-coral with golden micro-shimmer strewn through the base. The gold almost leans green-gold in certain angles. In some ways it’s comparable to Zoya Rica, but Zoya’s has a much larger gold particle shimmer in it (almost glittery in comparison), so the overall look is quite different. SpaRitual Hope Springs Eternal is closer in color but has a silvery shimmer and metallic finish.

OCC’s formula is four-free (it does not include DBP, formaldehyde, toulene, or formaldehyde resin), and it wears a full week on me with minor tip wear (but no chipping). Extravaganza had great drying time; I felt like it dried down by the time I finished doing one coat on each nail! The opacity is nice, too; I used two coats for opaque color. The consistency was thin without being watery with even flow across the nail.
