I love makeup. I love makeup because I can express myself with it. Sure, I wear mostly the no-makeup makeup in daily basis, but deep down periwinkle lipsticks and orange shadows dance like vision of sugarplums. Besides, how else can I own a piece of Chanel, Giorgio Armani or Tom Ford with less than a year's salary?
But Stila was the first love of my makeup life. With the very first purchase of Puck Eye Shadow, Orange Lip Glaze, and Orchid Convertible Color, my makeup
addiction journey officially began. This was back in the year 2000. Yes, I was a late bloomer.
|Perhaps this Toile de Jouy pattern is my most favorite Stila packaging/collection.|
|Each Stila pan/palette used to come with its own famous quote.|
|As you can see, I love this palette so much, it has seen better days.|
Stila has changed hands and reborn several times since then. The current Stila hardly inspires me of what it used to be. Most of the eye shadow shades are still there, but they don't even make the lipsticks anymore (remember Natalie?) -- yes, a makeup brand without lipstick. And where are the Stila girls and Stila cans? I visited their website just now, it seems like they are moving toward a different direction now. Every good things must come to an end and perhaps I will check out the new Stila next time I'm at my local Sephora.
What was your first makeup love? Or are/were you also a Stila fan?
