Stila Cosmetics: Tried & Tested!

We had a phone call last week from a very excitable manager about the latest brand available at our Beauty Outlet store here at Freeport Talke, ‘Victoria Beckham wears it’ she said. So like a flash, we were down there to investigate…

True to her word, there was over 20 different Stila products available on display; from concealer sticks right through to sparkly Christmas gift sets all half price or less! We waded through the testers, spotting and splashing as we go, needless to say 20 minutes later we left with a bucket load!

If you haven’t heard of the brand before, it’s a popular celebrity go-to with the likes of Victoria Beckham stating to Elle magazine, ‘I mainly use Stila products’ and Kylie Jenner declared the bronzer  (RRP £24 Beauty Outlet Price £12) as part of her 20 minute ‘everyday makeup look’ in the Daily Mail.

Apart from the obvious price reduction and massive celebrity following, we also love the eco-style packaging and most of the products are beautifully boxed (just like the ones above) to make great Christmas gifts and stocking fillers. But without getting ahead of ourselves, we decided that the proof was in the pudding, so we put Stila to the test…

Test One: The Illuminating Liquid Foundation

RRP £12 Beauty Outlet Price £12

It’s moisturising and silky in texture. It gives medium coverage, perfect for a dewy daytime look but it’s also easily buildable if you’re after more staying power! We found this product somewhere in between a Rimmel Wake Me Up for illuminating and MAC Studio Fix in terms of coverage. It lasted a full day at work!

Test Two: Set & Bronze Baked Powder Trio

RRP £12 Beauty Outlet Price £12

We couldn’t find anything we didn’t like about this product. The trio of shades offers a great bronzing depth for many skin types. It does everything a bronzer should do! For those with a paler complexion, this could be used as a great cheekbone highlighter.


We’re impressed! If Stila is good enough for Victoria Beckham, it’s good enough for us!

If you haven’t shopped our Beauty Outlet yet, have a look at Terri Lowe’s blog post here – she popped in to review the store when it first opened and she gave a pretty honest idea of what’s on offer from a fellow Stokie.
