Stila Sending My Love Set

Stila Sending My Love Set ($49.00 for 0.69 oz.) includes three cheek colors, five eyeshadows, an eyeliner, and a lipgloss. I was pleasantly surprised by this set! It’s not particularly unique, but it’s well-done and high quality.

I’ll be resisting, but I really like it. I can see the cheek colors even going on the eyes and coordinating very well with the eyeshadows. And the eyeliner is great! Good job, Stila. Usually their palettes don’t perform as well as their single eyeshadows, which are some of my favorites.

I hemmed and hawed over this for the VIB Rouge sale, because I absolutely loved Sangria but didn’t care much for the blush. Now that I see your review I have regret! I may have to buy it.

It’s quite nice! I feel like if you’d use everything but the blush, it’s worth heavy consideration. But maybe wait ’til Black Friday weekend, because you might be able to snag it on sale. Or Beauty.com right now has 20% off til tomorrow 🙂

With the exception of Sangria, I have enough dupes in my stash, but glad this set got a good score, wish that lip glaze didn’t look like clear petroleum jelly on lips. The packaging is really pretty and the colors are very wearable, glad that Stila came out with this, as some of their past products have been more misses for me

This reminds me so much of the Shattered Face Case by Urban Decay. I mean, same idea, same products. Well a lipgloss instead of lip pencil.
I would expect more creativity of such popular and good quality brands…

Nice. But I think I have bought all of the eyeshadows I need for 2015 ( except for ardency inn rose gold and maybe Sunday as well) and the blush won’t work for me, so it’s an easy pass

This is so beautifully coordinated a nd much higher quality than one may expect from Stila! Looks simply gorgeous, so yes, I am going to try to buy it! Love Sangria an Cinnamon the best, but love the whole kit as well.

This is really petty. Sangria is gorgeous and for a second my mind contemplated buying it for that shade solely. The rest of this kit is pretty dupable across my stash. This could be an excellent gift for non-makeup addicts or a beginner!

This looks like it would make a nice gift for someone who likes makeup, but doesn’t have very much of it yet. I think most people who are really into makeup already have similar shades in other formulas, except for the berry eyeshadow, which I do think is very pretty even though I usually don’t care for pink/red eyeshadows. The set seems like it would suit a lot of people with fair through medium skin tones (except for people with very cool undertones, perhaps).

This is actually a fantastic little set – the eye shadows are amazing – quite universal colours. Even the blushes are great. I just think the lip gloss is a bit so so – better a lipstick. But that is a minor issue. I am so pleased that Stila has got its mojo back and is delivering great quality products. They all look lovely on you Christine.

I bought this set this week and tried it yesterday. So far, so good! The packaging is very pretty and I freely admit that is what sucked me in. ? As a side note, I live in Australia and it was 40 Celsius here yesterday and Stingray melted! ?

UD’s perversion eye liner is LE?? I wish I knew that when Sephora and UD were having their 20% off sales because i would have totally stocked up!!

(It’s a nice set btw)

Great job, Stila. This is so complete and well executed. It would be a great Black Friday/Cyber Monday acquisition for a gift! And the use/app is so intuitive (obvious?) that it’s pretty foolproof. Good choice for something comprehensive, feminine, and straight on pretty. Maybe for a young woman I know…. Now she’s 19 w/ a new baby…. But at age 10, I took her to Sephora, where she wowed everyone by applying liquid liner perfectly. She has not had an easy life or the $ to indulge in much m/u, but has always had an interest. This would be perfect. Think it’s a go!

I agree — this one is foolproof! It is easy to see how they go together. Lots of looks? No, not necessarily, but it is only five eyeshadows done right!

What a nice set. I wouldn’t use the bronzer, but all the rest looks really good. I’m not going to buy it, even though Sangria is a colour I’d love to use, a lot, often, almost every day. Going for a dupe for it instead.
But, well done, Stila, I’m hardly ever tempted by their products, but this one sure is tempting.

Wow I love it! The packaging is really lovely. Purple and gold looks so pretty together. Stila usually disappoints so bravo Stila!
Semi-unrelated question, Christine how do you do your powder swatches – with your finger or a brush or a sponge applicator?

I’ve had my eye on this covetable kit since its release, but I rarely purchase something without reading a few reviews before… And temptalia is one of my top picks – if not my number one – for honest, detailed and comprehensive reviews. Now, having read your thoughts, seen your swatches, and admired the photos of your gorgeous self using this kit (makes your eyes pop like crazy!), I am sold.
Just bought it with 20% off – thank God for Black Friday and for international beauty stores (I do live in France)!
Thank you so much Christine!!

The eyeshadow palette reminds me of a warmer UD Rollergirl palette! Which is a good thing for me…! It’s marked down on Sephora’s website already!

Wow, now THAT is a surprise. I haven’t been interested in *anything* Stila for a very long time just due to their decline in quality, specifically with their eyeshadows & ES palettes. But this has me interested again…..
