Loving Stila’s “In The Light” Palette!

So I went into Ulta the other day with only one thing to purchase. Fekkai’s glossing cream. After grabbing it, I stopped by Stila’s makeup – just for a look! Of course, I end up grabbing Stila’s new ‘In The Light’ palette – it could not be helped! They’re all my favorite colors – in one palette! This palette is one of 3 beautiful collections. There’s In The Garden, In The Moment and mine (above) In The Light. Each palette contains 10 eye shadow shades. My palette contains the best-selling shade Kitten, and a limited edition Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner.

The new In The Light Palette is a beautiful collection of Stila’s award-winning Eye Shadows in wearable, neutral shades for every skintone that can be worn wet or dry. The palette also includes an exclusive Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Damsel, a matte chocolate brown, and an eight-page lookbook with detailed how-to tips and tricks.

I love the lookbook that comes with this palette. It gives soooooo many awesome how-to ideas for your eye shadow. Bottom line – this palette does not disappoint!! You can own it by clicking the link above! $39 for 10 shadows is a steal!

Here are some other awesome Stila products:

Marc Jacobs new fragrance ‘Dot’ smells like coconut water and dragon fruit!

I want to smell this so bad! Just the description sounds amazing!

Marc Jacobs, the genius behind my favorite perfume (Lola) is launching a new fragrance! In July of this year, he’ll debut his new perfume, Dot.

I’m in love with the adorable lady-bug themed bottle!

Dot will be the third major scent for Jacobs, who launched Daisy in 2007 and Lola in 2009.

Dot’s dot-bedecked bottle is supposed to evoke a “ladybug with butterflies alighting on it,” which makes us think it’s going to be a super-sweet scent. For those of you who speak Fragrance, Dot has top notes of red berries, dragon fruit and honeysuckle; a heart of jasmine, coconut water and orange blossom and a drydown of vanilla, driftwood and musk.

Coconut water? Like Zico?

Ads for Dot will predictably star an ultra-young model. This time it’s 19-year-old Codie Young, whom you might remember from the Topshop “size zero” controversy fame.

Cannot wait to try it!!

Crabtree & Evelyn’s new Avocado, Olive & Basil Collection

The avocado fruit, indigenous to Central and South America, has long been hailed for its natural healing and beneficial properties, particularly the ability to moisturise and soothe the skin. In the Mediterranean, olive oil has been used for centuries in skin care, culinary, and medicinal applications, earning it the reputation of “liquid gold”. It is the combination of these two fruits with the restorative and aromatic properties of basil that has resulted in a new ultra-moisturising body and hand care range. These antioxidant-rich fruit oils and soothing basil will help to condition, restore, and moisturise your skin.

Central to this collection is a luxurious Skin Nourishing Body Butter, which will moisturise the driest skin and can be massaged into thirsty skin anytime for ultimate deep conditioning.

The unique fresh green herbal fragrance captures the scent of avocado and olive blossoms, basil, sage, and Mediterranean herbs, making it suitable for both men and women. The entire range is suitable for all skin types and is formulated without parabens, phthalates, sulfates, propylene glycol, and mineral oil.
