Stila products are probably up there with my top three favourite brands at the moment, literally everything about them is amazing and it is my go-to brand when recommending products to anyone as it just seems to work well for most ladies – from the non-make up wearing gals right through to us beauty junkies – everyone loves it!
On that note, I was super-excited when the lovely girls at Style36 sent me a cute little Stila bag with some goodies to try (including the awesome Colour Convertible that I’ve been dying to get my hands on).
The brand is now stocked on Style36 and they’ve launched with some unreal promotions – some sound too good to be true! They also offer free delivery and I can tell you (from first-hand experience) that the service you will get is truly exceptional). Adding to that, if you are unhappy with the product they also offer returns.

The latest promo is that when you spend R450 or more you receive a free make up bag with 3 Stila Lip Glazes which is valued at R420 – amazing! And for those who haven’t tried these lip glazes, you are missing out.
Below are some of the products I received and my thoughts on them (plus some other Stila goodies that I already own and just adore). You can check them out in the store by clicking on the hyperlinks:
Stila Convertible Colour in Peony: This is a lip and cheek tint and is really popular. The colour is great and super dewy. I love this on my cheeks, over tinted moisturiser and it looks great on my lips too – the pigment is great. I had actually been in store prior to receiving this and played around with these as Camilla from All Dolled Up had told me how much she loved it. I didn’t even try the Peony colour as was looking at the more pinky pigments, however, I am so happy I got this one – it’s the perfect colour for dark brunettes so go and give it a try! R240
Stila Smudge Stick in Purple Tang: Again, I would never have bought a purple eye liner but this colour is just gorgeous with dark hair. It’s a very subtle purple but great for day-wear as a lot less harsh that my usual black. R190
Stila Lip Glaze in Brown Sugar: this colour looks really dark in the tube but applies amazingly and gives the lips a really natural glow. This lip glazes come in a twisty applicator that has a brush on the end. It also ensures you are able to use every last drop of product which is a bonus! R165
Stila In The Moment Eye Shadow Palette: I got this when Stila first launched in South Africa and as a very ‘safe’ eye-shadow wearer, it was perfect. I cannot tell you how many of my friends have now bought this after trying mine out. The colours are perfect and every single colour included is one that you will use. Such a good deal! R395
Lastly, I worked with Stila in my time living in London so know the brand well. I collected a number of their make-up brushes and they are still some of my absolute favourites – so soft and the perfect shapes and sizes so have a look at those too.
