Beauty Byte: Stila Has Been Saved!

At the beginning of the month, there were some rumblings that Stila was going bankrupt, and you were not loving the news. Nor was I. Well, happy day, because Stila has been saved. Patriarch Partners LLC, a private equity firm that specializes in restructuring distressed brands, has acquired the much-loved makeup brand.

"This is a company we think we can get back on its feet quickly," said Lynn Tilton, CEO of Patriarch. "When we acquire brands, we look at two things: do they have a great product, and do they have strong brand recognition? We think we’re two for two with Stila," she told WWD.

While the Stila website is not back in action as of yet, Patriarch has plans to rehire core Stila employees and expand into the Chinese market. And in a techie move that we've all made, expect to see Stila making appearances on Facebook and Twitter, too.

Glad to hear STila is stilla-round. (ha-ha- get it?!). I don't wear any Stila presently, but would hate to hear of an established line being dismantled.

Well they are still not doing so great, I just saw a ton of cheek color pots at TjMaxx on clearance for $1 (they usually go for about $20).

I heard about this, and am so relieved! I knew Stila wouldn't go out of business because they're so popular, I just hope this new company keeps the core products we love!

Thank goodness!! I was afraid I'd have to stock up on tinted moisturizers &then try to find another brand. (I hate shopping around for make-up's just too much work. lol)
