Remember when Stila was impossible to find? I can still recall the first time I saw one of their lip glazes on a friend who'd just come back from New York — we were all totally smitten and covetous. Now, the company is going for mass appeal, selling this Makeup Player ($69.90, including cosmetics), under the tagline "Does Your Makeup Talk to You?" (Yes, but only after one too many White Russians.)
The Makeup Player is essentially two speakers inside a pleather case, and you're supposed to be able to listen to music or watch Stila's instructional makeup videos (if you already own an iPod with video, of course) while you apply. Is this a geek-meets-chic moment, or do you think it's goofy?
