Hi there, my darlings! Oh the week and a half I've had! Between orientation for the new job and my killer commute, I literally haven't had a chance to breathe! But I promised myself that I would keep blogging and blog I shall. Nevertheless, every once in awhile, things slip through the cracks. Case in point: this post! I had this up and ready to go LAST Friday, but life intervened and here we are! Since the blog is pretty much a direct reflection of my personal headspace, I knew I wanted to share with you all how I would incorporate my love for makeup with my busy work schedule while still trying to have a social life. Recently, Stila Cosmetics sent over a set of goodies and a lightbulb went on over my head. What are we talking about today, you ask? MOTDs, that's what! A simple day look for a full day at work, followed by a quick switcheroo to transform into a dramatic look for a night on the town--using products all from Stila (with the exception on my foundation and pressed powder)!


STAY ALL DAY Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner ($22.00 USD)

Introducing “Intense” shades of Stila's #1 selling waterproof liquid liner. From thin, precise lines, to thick, dramatic strokes, the formula glides on with ease, dries quickly and won’t smudge or run, day-into-night. The fine marker-like tip offers precise application for everyone from novices to pros and results in beautifully defined eyes that will leave a lasting impression.

  • Goes on smoothly without skipping, smudging, or pulling.
  • The fine tip makes application a cinch.
  • Waterproof formula lasts all day!

When Stila says microtip, they mean MICRO. This tip is so fine that, try as I may, I just couldn't get a clear, focused shot of it! At first, I was worried that it was too thin and I would end up spending ages lining my eyes. But that wasn't at all the case! The tip just allows for greater precision so it didn't take as long to get the perfect wing tips and the formula is so easy to work with that you can glide on liner to the thickness you desire in all but a snap. Totally love this baby!

HUGE Extreme Lash Mascara ($23.00 USD)

Dare to be HUGE! 

Introducing HUGE™ Extreme Lash Mascara… for the biggest, boldest, blackest black lashes ever! With just one coat, you instantly get major volume, length, curl, lift and intense black color. Go as bold as you want! Even with multiple coats, this flexible, buildable formula leaves lashes soft with no clumps, flakes, or fall out.


A custom blend of soft, flexible waxes build volume with no clumping
Lash conditioners lock in moisture so lashes stay soft, coat after coat
Crimped brush bristles hug, catch and coat every lash
The curved brush mimics the eye shape so it’s easy to grab every lash
Long-wearing, smudge-proof
Clinically tested. Suitable for wearers of contact lenses

My new favorite mascara! And I don't say that lightly! I have thin, straight lashes that can use all the volume and curl they can get. This mascara gives them fabulous volume and impressive lift but also lengthens while it's at it for comfortable, all-day wear!


SHIMMER -- STAY ALL DAY Liquid Lipstick ($22.00 USD)

Stila’s iconic Stay All Day® Liquid Lipstick gets a makeover! NEW Stay All Day® Shimmer Liquid Lipstick has the same comfortable, all day staying power as the original matte formula, but now in a subtle metallic, shimmering finish! 

Full coverage, shimmer liquid lipstick stays in place for up to 12 hours.
Weightless, color-rich formula won't bleed or transfer.

Available in 6 shades:

  • Patina Shimmer (Shimmering dusty rose)
  • Beso Shimmer (Shimmering true red)
  • Miele Shimmer (Shimmering warm dusty rose)
  • Illuminaire Shimmer (Shimmering warm caramel)
  • Lume Shimmer (Shimmering fuchsia)
  • Nudo Shimmer (Shimmering warm terracotta nude) (SHOWN BELOW)

I have to be honest: I am NOT a morning person by any means so most days, I barely manage to smudge on a little kohl liner on the lower lashlines, throw on my nerdy glasses and run! I slap on a lipstick on my commute. But in an ideal world, this would be my perfect day look! Gently winged liner, just on the upper lashline, and a pretty, pink-toned lipstick like Nude Shimmer shown below. What do you think?


STAY ALL DAY Liquid Lipstick ($22.00 USD)

The ultimate power pout! This creamy-matte, full-coverage lip color delivers bold, long-lasting color and stays in place for up to 6 hours of continuous wear. 
The texture is weightless on lips and comfortable. The color-rich formula will not bleed or transfer. 
Enriched with Vitamin E and avocado oil, Stay All Day® Liquid Lipstick softens the lips so they look and feel beautiful!
  • Creamy-matte, full coverage liquid lipstick
  • Long-lasting color stays in place
  • Weightless, color-rich formula will not bleed or feather.
  • Enriched with Vitamin E and Avocado Oil to help hydrate and keep lips comfortable.  
Available in 39 shades, shown below is Fiery (Deep Red)

If I'm going out at night, I prefer a bold, dramatic look. Could I pull this off right after work? Logistically, yes! Just swipe on the liquid eyeshadow, add liner along the lower lashlines and switch the pink lip with a bold shade like Fiery shown below. Instant drama! Realistically, though, I would have to be going somewhere pretty special to go all out like this after a long day at work! ;)

GLIMMER AND GLOW Liquid Eye Shadow ($22.00 USD)

This brilliantly long-wearing sparkle eye shadow combines the perfect mix of pearl and glitter to lavish eyes with incredible luster and shimmer. With its uniquely lightweight, water-infused texture, Glitter & Glow glides on effortlessly, then dries down smoothly, locking in maximum sparkle with minimal fallout, for eyes with a real "wow!" factor.

Which of the two looks I created do you like best? Tell me in the comments section below!

***Products were sent to me for an honest, unbiased review. All opinions are my own.***


  1. What stunning looks you created, Babi!

  2. Your evening look is a wow! I was wondering about the Stila glitter shadows. Amazing!

  3. What a great shift from day to night and it doesn't seem like you had to do much. Stila's liquid eyeliner is one of the best out there. I've had mixed results with HUGE though since my first one was like magic and my second was a fail. That lack of consistency is a problem for me but unfortunately that's how many mascaras are.

  4. Those sparkly eyeshadows are really stunning! I haven't tried them yet, but I like a touch of glitter as an accent on a neutral eye look.

  5. I am a huge fan of stila. I bought almost everything after doing my makeup lessons for beginners London , because I try to practice a lot to improve my skill.
