Stila is one of my favorite brands for when you just want to look pretty, and I usually pick up a few of its holiday items. Every year, Stila has some gorgeous holiday kits, and this time around is no exception. I'm daydreaming about this Glamour Galore set ($150), which contains $400 worth of product. I'd list it all out, but frankly, the picture has more of a "wow" factor than a list would. Let's just say that if the idea of having five lip glosses, two lipsticks, and a slew of eye shadows is your holiday wish, you should let Santa know about this set.
Of course, there are some less extravagant (but equally fun!) options in the holiday lineup. To find out about them, just
- Gift of Glaze ($28) includes six mini Lip Glazes, including two limited-edition shades: Nutmeg Spice (golden rosy peach) and Candy Cane (sheer golden red).
- Gift of Glow ($45) is a bronzing set whose contents would normally cost $90—so if you've been wanting an all-in-one kit, this might be your bargain buy. It contains a Sun Bronzer, Lip Glaze in Brown Sugar, Smudge Pot in Bronze, a Baked Eye Shadow Trio in Gold Glow, and a mini eyeliner brush.
- Gift of Glamour ($60) is another set. This one is billed as a "best of" kit, and I think that's an apt description. It contains Lip Glaze in Fruit Cake (golden rose), Eye Shadow in Kitten (and you know how I love Kitten) and Barefoot Contessa, Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 in Shade 01 (for fair skin), and Multi-Effect Mascara. My only hesitation with this kit is that the tinted moisturizer won't fit everyone's complexion—so be sure it works for you before buying it.
- Finally, there are two eye and cheek palettes ($32): Blanc (for warm complexions) and Noire (for cool complexions). Each has three eye shadows and one cheek color in a handy palette.
