Sale of Stila

May 20, 2006

Here’s the real deal to the sale of Stila. I used to really like their eyeshadows and palettes – this is *so* sad =(


Stila, formerly owned by Estee Lauder, is officially sold to an affiliate of Sun Capital Partners Inc. in April. A new management team, operating under the name Stila Corp., will lead the brand.

Stila is currently being pulled from all counters. The brand will still be carried at Sephora,, select Bloomingdales, Barneys NY, Fred Segal, select Anthropolgie stores, select Bloomingdales and most likely online at Sephora will only be carrying 50% of the line. Bloomingdales will carry 100%.

The Pro stores located at South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, CA and Valley Fair in Santa Clara, CA will close in July. They will not get any new stock or new collections. The Pro Store at Beverly Center in Los Angeles, CA will stay open.

There is no information about Stila’s availability outside the US.

    I am really sad about that…Though Stila is not my favourite brand, they have a lot of good stuff. They worth to stay in my opinion. Hope the new management team will only make Stila better. 🙂

    Hi there

    Can you do a tutorial on nail care? I have few brands in mind but not sure which one is better, e.g. Barielle, Creative nail, OPI, Sally Hansen, etc. Hope you can give me some advice =)
