It's been business as usual for Stila in other Countries, so they've continued to grow and develop during the hiatus. It's interesting to see what has changed and what has stayed the same. They still have all of their lovely eyeshadows, including the famous 'Kitten' but gone is the cardboard packaging. I'm happy to report that the lip glazes and Convertible Colours remain the same.

Some of the things that really caught my eye at the launch were the glorious Sparkle Waterproof eyeliners, the All Over Shimmer Powder duo in Kitten and the rather interesting Custom Colour blushers. The Custom Colour blushers apparently react with your skin's pH to create a slightly different colour each time you use it. The shade that really appealed to me hasn't been released yet, it's a glorious pinky-apricot colour and I predict a riot when that comes out! The Smudge Sticks, that are essentially the smudge pots in stick form, looked interesting too. I like the shade Lionfish in particular.
There are some new base products including a One Step Primer and Perfect & Correct Foundation but what I'm particularly keen to explore are some of their older and more well know items. I've already mentioned the Lip Glazes (they smell amazing), also on my wishlist are the Convertible Colours in Gladiola and Gerbera and I was really taken with many of their brushes too.
Stila is available from Boots.com and Escentual.com as well as a few other online stockists. I'm not actually sure if the range has made it in to Boots stores yet. If you've spotted it, let me know. Have you already made any Stila purchases since their return? What's on your wishlist?
