Update 11/2013 – Stila is selling in China and is no longer cruelty free.
Ohmigod Stila holiday gift sets! Okay, I know we should be buying presents for friends and family, but this is the time to stock up on the makeup goodies for yourself too. Some companies skimp on the quality of their holiday sets, but not Stila. These are full-sized, highly-pigmented lip shades, eye liners and shadows.
The Long Wear Liquid Lip Set is a collection of four pigment-rich, creamy-matte, liquid lip colors. They really do last for hours. The texture is weightless on lips and the VERY highly pigmented formula will not bleed or transfer. They are enriched with vitamin E and avocado oil so they are not as drying as regular long-wear formulas. This is a great set of wearable colors that any gal would love! I think these are pretty freaking amazing and can definitely compete with OCC Lip Tars in terms of color payoff and long-wear.
- caprice (hot pink)
- petal (pale pink)
- coral (peach pink)
- muse (natural mauve)
The Luxe Eye Shadow Palette is a high-tech eye shadow palette featuring a mix of 6 cream-to-powder eye shadows and 3 inventive micro-matte shades, as well as a Smudge Stick (colors listed below).
The cream-to-powder eye shadows glide on with a mousse-like feel and transform into a soft, velvety powder on the lids. Color payoff is amazing (the swatches below are shown WITHOUT primer)! These are seriously amazing for pressed shadows! The formula is buildable and has a soft and silky texture, while the emollients ensure long-lasting color that stays true over time.The palette also includes a smudge stick waterproof eye liner in Ladyfish and a mirror and look book with various looks and pro artist tips and tricks to complete your look.
Eye Shadow Palette Shades:

The Seeing Stars Smudge Stick Set will set your holiday eyes all aglow with this set of Stila’s best-selling smudge stick waterproof eye liners in five shimmery metallic shades:

- tetra (deep shimmery purple)
- moray (golden olive shimmer)
- oscar fish (warm brown with gold pearl)
Perfect for any day or evening holiday look, these waterproof and long-wearing shades in a propel pencil won’t smudge, budge or fade through holiday cheer or seasonal weather. They glide on easily and last forever, but they’re still smudge-able so you can rock that smoky eye! A great way to accentuate any holiday look or all year round, this set of 5 full size eye liners is a $100 value for only $32!
