Stila Fall 2010 Color of Innovation Collection Reviews and Swatches

Finally saw part of the new Stila Fall 2010 Color of Innovation Collection at Ulta today. Just as expected, the Stila Backstage Eye Shadow Palette ($28) is GORGEOUS!

Stila Backstage Eyeshadow Palette

The palette comes in a thin cardboard compact with 6 super rich, wearable colors that are perfect for Fall. The eyeshadows are all very nicely pigmented with a smooth, blendable texture.

From top left (clockwise):

* Poetic is a shimmery pale mauve.
* Luster is a metallic taupe similar to MAC Satin Taupe eyeshadow.
* Flamingo is a shimmery fuchsia that reminds me of MAC Pink Pearl pigment.
* Chiffon is a shimmery light peach.
* Pacific is metallic denim blue.
* Coal is a shimmery dark teal.

Overall, it is a great palette and a really good deal. I will totally get it if I didn’t own similar colors.

The Long Wear Liquid Lip Colors ($22) that I had my eyes on turned out to be pretty awesome as well. They go on semi-opaque and very moisturizing without feeling tacky at all. They also tend to leave behind a stained look even after they wear off. I will go back for Caprice for sure.

I was slightly disappointed at the One Step Correct ($36) that a lot of you are interested in. While the product looks super cute with the 3 color-correctors (green, lavender and peach) all mixed together, I did not notice any color correction on my skin. The primer did however, make my skin really smooth and hydrated without feeling heavy and I do like that it spreads very easily so you only need a teeny bit (literally what you see below).

So what do you think so far? Will you be getting anything?

The Stila Fall 2010 Color of Innovation Collection is now available at Sephora.


  1. Is it just me or the palette resembles Urban Decay’s Book of Shadows?

    Do you have any tips on pulling off Fuchsia lips? I can wear red well, but Fuchsia looks too weird on me. Thanks in advance!
