Best of the Sales: Stila Haul

The January sales have been in full swing for a few weeks now, and one I've taken full advantage of is Stila's. 

The UK website has been offering some fantastic deals, with discounts of up to 75% on many items- and on some really beautiful products, too. When I discovered this over Christmas, it didn't take me long to snap up a few sets. I would've been stupid not to, really!

I ordered three different sets; and ordered multiples of two of them which I'm going to store away for birthday / Christmas presents. Yep, I'm that organised, I already have some presents sorted for next Christmas! I didn't aim to start my Christmas shopping before this one was even over, but the products and prices were too good to resist, and I know of a few ladies who will love them!

The Snow Angel Colour Palette was the reason I logged on to Stila that day. I gave one to each of my sisters for Christmas after picking them up earlier in the year, but I never managed to get one for myself before they sold out. After giving them to my sisters on Christmas Day, it reminded me how much I'd wanted one, and I later popped on to the website for a browse. And, would you believe, this lovely set was on sale- and with 75% off! It had been reduced from £29.50 to just £7.37! £7.37 for 18 eyeshadows, 12 blushers, and a full sized mascara! That deal was so fantastic I bought two; one for me and one for my best friend.

I can't wait to play around with all the colours in this set; they all look so wearable, and feel silky soft to the touch. My sisters have both told me nothing but good things about them, and I'm so pleased I finally got a set of my own. I'll be sure to give it a proper review very soon, once I've had some time to test it all out!

I bought a few Stila Seeing Stars Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner Sets, which is a set of five metallic eyeliners. They were originally £25 but on sale for £6.25, which is fantastic considering the products are worth £65! I originally bought one, but made another order for a couple more. These eyeliners went out of stock, but were restocked afterwards, so it's worth keeping an eye on the website in case more stock reappears.

And I also bought another palette. I wasn't expecting the packaging to be glittery! I fell in love with the glittery-ness and oohed and aahed at it for longer than is probably acceptable for a twenty-eight year old woman!

This set is the Stila Sparkle Luxe Eye Shadow Palette which was on sale for £7.50, down from £30.00. I'd originally ordered it with the intent of giving it as a present later on, but I'd underestimated just how lovely it would be. The short story is, I fell in love with the eyeshadow colours, especially the burgundies, so I kept it for myself! I'm sure you would've done so, too! I did go back online hoping to pick up a couple more, but it sold out so fast. I'm hoping they might restock it.

The set comes with an eyeliner pencil and nine beautiful eyeshadows, four of which I've already had a play with- they're beautiful and really well pigmented. Again, I shall be back with a full review of the set really soon.

I'd intended to put together a post on Boxing Day to let you all know about these fabulous bargains, but they'd all sold out in hours! I tweeted about them, though. Sadly all three of these sets are now sold out their UK site, but it's worth keeping an eye on their website on the off-chance they're restocked. There are some other great bargains to be had, though; all of which you can find here. I'm quite tempted with the All You Need is Love pressed powder palette!

EDIT: As I'm writing this edit on 8th Jan 2014 at 10:10pm, Stila have restocked many of their sales items including the Snow Angel Palette and the Sparkle Luxe Eye Shadow Palette! Get in there fast!



  1. I didn't hear about the sale until a few days ago so I only got the eyeliner set and the breast cancer blusher & lip gloss set. Still, fab bargains and I can't wait for them to arrive! I'm well jealous you snagged two palettes. :) x x

  2. These are such lovely sets - I'm jealous! I'm sure your friends will love them too - its never to early to start sorting out presents for the year :)
