  • Stila Stingray

Stila Stingray in NYC

Saturday when I was in NYC I wore Stila Stingray liner that I received at the Makeup Show Orlando. Sadly, I had an allergic reaction to it. I’m not sure why some of the Stila products cause a reaction and others don’t. I can wear Starfish liner with no problem, but Stingray and Peacock cause my eyes to swell up and burn. When I removed Stingray from my eyes, my skin felt like I had tiny little cuts all over the eye area where I’d applied the liner. I ended up with a nasty headache and having to lay down for part of Saturday. I had this sort of reaction with Stila’s Cobalt Clutch and Purple Pumps Smudge pot, but not Kitten. There must be a similar ingredient in Cobalt Clutch, Purple Pumps, Peacock and Stingray that I’m allergic to. It really sucks because Stingray looks great with my eye color, but I’ve got other grey eyeliners I can wear that don’t cause an allergic reaction. This is actually why I haven’t used a lot of products that I own from Stila, even though I like their products.   […]

  • Stila Starfish Look

Friday in NYC

This is what I wore Friday in NYC. It’s an Outfit of the Day post and Face of the Day post all rolled into one. Like on Thursday, I had horrid lighting for makeup, so I opted to keep it simple. I wore my awesome purple sweater that I’d picked up at Kohls. I have to say, I LOVE my sweater, jeans and shoes. They were so comfy and cute! I also wore one of my favorite WhimsyBeading necklaces, too!   […]

  • Refinery 29 VIP Event

Refinery 29 Tinsel Town VIP Event Look

While I’m still working on my NYC trip post, I wanted to share with you the look that I wore to the VIP Event at Refinery 29 on Thursday, Dec. 13. Let me preface this with our hotel room had HORRIBLE lighting. There was  no good lighting in the bathroom, or in the hallway with the long mirror. There was no natural light because our view outside the window was another building. We had no lighting at all. Yuck. I am spoiled by my daylight bulbs in my home. Thank goodness for the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette. Without it, I’d have been screwed! […]
