Stila Spring 2018 photos & swatches!

*affiliate links in this post*

Just because Christmas is over doesn't mean we have to say goodbye to our love of shimmer and glitters and Stila have set the bar high for their spring 2018 launch.  We're talking lots of colour and sparkle and a few surprises too!  The Stila Bohemian Beauty Spring collection is only fabulous and last week I got to swatch as much of the products as possible and got given one of the bits to try out too.

They've brought out more Magnificent Metals Glitter and Glow and Shimmer and Glow, the shimmers have the rose gold lid and the glitters have the gold lid.  Can you cope?  The answer is no.  No Karen, I cannot cope.

If that wasn't enough sparkle for you, they've two new shades of the Glitterati Top Coats, one of which I've swatched over a matte red on my hand below so you could see.  I haven't tried it out properly on the lips but the bi-phase formula has a water base, packed full of really fine shimmer that dries matte, so you won't have glitter all over your face.

They've extended their Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick range and have added six Stay All Day Shimmer Liquid Lipsticks and six Stay All Day Sheer Liquid Lipsticks (more on one of them below).  And they've brought back their Smudge Kajal Eyeliners!  The nude was one of my favourite shades to wear on the waterline years ago and I'll have to get their new version to see how it compares.

The imagery for the collection is beautiful and each look is something I could actually do myself.  Ok, maybe I couldn't pull off the pale blue eyeshadow but still, you never know!

I was given a full size of the Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow in Grace, one of my favourite shades from the Christmas set I bought last year.  And I got the Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in the shade Sheer Beso.  Packaging is spot on as per uge.

I thought a little hand swatch might be a good place to start and as I've shown Grace before, let's have the chats about Sheer Beso.  This is a double layer, just to show how much it can be built up.  But let's see it on the lips.

Now, when Stila said they were bringing out a sheer version of their Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick and when I found out one of them was red, my inner scaredy cat rejoiced!  You know me and my goal to wear red lips more outside of the house and now thanks to Sheer Beso, I can build myself up to that.  In the photo below, I've applied just one layer so you can see the finish and in the photo underneath that, I've applied two coats.

The finish is beautifully smooth and first impressions are really positive.  But I've only worn it around the house so far and I've an event next week that I'm planning on wearing it to, so stand by for a proper wear test in real life!

The Stila Bohemian Beauty Spring collection is available now on Cloud 10 Beauty and on the Stila website.  Keep an eye out in Marks and Spencers for it too along with ASOS.  I just had a look on their websites and it's not on there yet.

Is anything taking your fancy in the collection?
