Be Stila my beating heart, it's coming back to Ireland!

Ladies, a very important piece of information came our way today via Twitter and that was that Stila is coming back to Ireland!!  It was a sad day (for me anyway) when Stila was no longer in Brown Thomas as it has been my favourite brand of makeup for years.  The first time I heard of it was after seeing The Sweetest Thing (completely crude and gross girlie film, so right up my street) starring Cameron Diaz and her make up was gorgeous in it so off I went and googled it and found out about Stila.  Since then, my stash has grown and grown and will now grow some more because ladies, on July 6th, Stila will be available in Boots in Liffey Valley!

So I thought I would show you my Stila stash in all it's glory.  A few bits are my sister's but since she's not into make up too much, I have "minded" them for her.  I'm good like that.

First up are the palettes.  I've been collecting these for yonks and they all make me happy.  And that's what life is all about right?!  I think they're probably all limited edition but that's ok, I'll still love them anyway.


Below are the palettes open.  As you can see, I love me some neutral shadows and smokey ones too.  The quality of the shadows are second to none.

These are the single shadows that I must put in a palette. I got the ones in pots in Sephora in NY over the years and the ones in the pans were bought from Cheapsmells.com last year.  Bottom left is Kitten, my absolute favourite eyeshadow of all time ever in any brand.

Below are the eyeliners, mascaras and convertible eye colours.  Onyx is my favourite black eyeliner ever.  The convertible eye colours are great because they've an eyeliner on one end and eyeshadow in the middle with a smudger on the other end.  Great for novices like my sister!


Below are the lip products.  Some of these belong to my sis.  Now, little fact, sad fact really.  When I saw Jennifer Lopez in the film The Wedding Planner yonks ago, she used a lip gloss in one of the scenes and of course, after the movie, googley googley, found out it was one of Stila's Lip Glazes, so I needed and got it!


Below are the foundations and powders in the collection.  I love the mini powders, I can't remember where exactly I got them it was that long ago.  They're great for popping in my handbag when going out.  And of course, I found out that Cameron Diaz used Stila's foundation in The Sweetest Thing and it's gorgeous.


Below are the blushes and bronzers.  I found out that Sarah Jessica Parker used the convertible colour products in Sex and the City so being the lemming I was at the time (and still am) I got one in the colour Peony, thats the larger one.  It's a gorgeous cream blush that is great for summer because it stays put.


So folks, that's my Stila collection for now.  That will most definitely be changing come July 6th (well, when I get back from my hol) and I will bring whoever will fit in my car to Liffey Valley to go get Stila stuff!

What should be on my list ladies?  Enable me please!
