Fall 2010 Collections: Stila Color of Innovation

Now that I'm back in the blogging swing of things, I've ben catching up on upcoming Fall 2010 collections. Above is Stila's autumn offering, The Color of Innovation. I'm wincing as I type this, because I love Stila and I love pink...but I just don't love this collection. The eye palette looks uncoordinated and, dare I say, garish (perhaps due to the inclusion of mauve and fuchsia next to metallic navy and emerald). And the cheek color is another one of those "magical" color change products that purports to react to your pH levels to "create the perfect shade every time." If it's the perfect shade every time, maybe Stila should just discontinue all its other blushes. Just sayin'.

On the positive side, I DO love the shades of the new Long Wear Liquid Lip Color, especially Petal and Caprice (4th and 5th from top, respectively). And props to Stila for creating more pink-toned lip liners, for which, longtime readers will know, I have a major soft spot.

Full details on the collection, available now:

  • Long Wear Liquid Lip Color ($22) in Coral (shimmery coral), Muse (natural mauve), Patina (warm nude), Petal (pale pink), Caprice (hot pink), and Fiery (red)

  • Backstage Eyeshadow Palette ($28) with shades including Chiffon (shimmery peach), Flamingo (shimmery fuchsia), Pacific (metallic navy blue), Luster  (metallic warm alloy), Poetic (shimmery mauve), and Coal (cool metallic emerald)

  • Custom Color Blush ($20) one shade

  • Long Wear Lip Liner ($18) in Aspiring (neutral beige), Passionate (red), Charming (light rose), and Obsessed (hot pink)
