Stila Festival of Colour Collection feat. Mint Green Liner, Glow in Dark Lips & a Bronzing BB Cream

A Bronzing BB Cream! Aah such a relief that they did not just come up with yet another BB cream. This one will apparently not only contain all the benefits of the usual BB cream (aka a tinted moisturiser) but will also have the added SPF of 30 for the sunnier months and a lovely golden glow to match our tan complexions. A beach must-have or what? I swatched it on my hand at the event and it was such a beautiful golden colour with enough pigmentation to do a full face with, if you can match your concealer and have fake tan on your neck and below. 

A pastel mint green liner! Who would have thought of that? I seriously haven't seen anything beautifully close to Stila's All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Turquoise. It's not one of those shades that looks great when swatched but scary to pull off. It's such a pretty, almost baby blue shade that's so soft and romantic that it would suit quite a few skin tones. Imagine doing a cat eye flick with this baby? It looks super trendy and cool for the festival season and I want to own one in my vanity.

Glow in dark lip colours! I have seen brands do something similar with lip glosses before but it's totally different here as the format they are using is of a stain which is accessible and wearable on an everyday basis. These After Glow Lip Colours are actually very pigmented and have a gorgeous glossy finish to it. The shades are beautifully bright in natural lighting as well but rock-star-like in the dark when exposed to UV light. Who needs a glow stick for a concert again? Any one can spot you with a lip shade like this. 

Overall, Stila's SS13 Festival of Colour Collection was quite refreshing, fun and innovative compared to other brands. If you'd have a look at the products in real, it is impossible that you wouldn't want to own a few pieces. I personally have my eyes glued to a few. All I need is some sun and a holiday now :)
