Stila, Oh How I Love Thee!

I have just discovered the delightfullness that is Stila...and can I just say...it's like finding religion!

I have been a MAC girl for years now, obsessing over their foundation, powder, eyeshadow, brushes, etc. But things are a'changin' in my life. I recently decided to try a new powder and I was pleasantly surprised when the employee at my local JCPenny's suggested Stila. Of course I had heard of it, but I had never tried it.

I purchased natural finish oil-free makeup ($36) and illuminating powder foundation ($26), and combine the two together for a long-lasting, flawless look. I was a bit shocked when I was told that I had to buy a compact to hold my powder. I couldn't believe that it didn't come with the makeup. However; $14 for a reusable compact isn't too bad considering that I am reducing waste and being resourceful.

Right now they are offering some great deals on Stila's Web site. Free shipping for purchases over $50, Acapulco Eye Shadow Trio marked down from $32 to $18, Pon Pon Gerbera Lip Glaze originally $20 but on sale for $7, a free sample with every order, and much, much more! There is a whole page dedicated to the thrifty shopper in each of us.
