In love: Stila Seeing Stars Smudge Stick Set


People who know me well also know that I’m a Mecca Cosmetica freak, and that pretty much all of my Christmas and birthday shopping can be done there. It’s full of some of my absolute favourite brands ever – hello Diptyque! Nars! Byredo! – and they always have the most perfect edit of gift packs in town.
They are also the exclusive stockists of the very cool – and affordable – Stila brand, one of who’s bestsellers is the Smudge Stick, a sleek waterproof eyeliner pencil known for its long-wearing abilities. For holiday 2012, Stila have offered up a gift set of these famous pencils and yep, Mecca has it in stock!
Called the Seeing Stars Smudge Stick Set, it is a collection of Stila’s bestselling Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liners in five shimmery metallic shades. Perfect for creating a day or evening look, these waterproof and long-wearing shades, packaged in a convenient propel pencil, won’t smudge, budge, or fade through holiday cheer or seasonal weather, and are super portable for travel as no sharpener is needed. The formula glides on effortlessly as well, meaning no drag on the delicate skin around the eyes.
The set contains:
Stargazer — black with gold and silver pearl
Angelfish  — metallic champagne beige
Tetra — deep shimmery purple
Moray — golden olive shimmer
Oscar fish – warm brown with gold pearl
Smudge Sticks are also blissfully free of Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrance, Petrochemicals, Phthalates, GMOs
or Triclosan, which gets big thumbs up from me.
They are only tiny but you can get pretty creative with them, layering a couple of colors next to each other or as eyeshadows or even highlighters by applying loads on the back of your hand then dabbing the product onto specific areas. They key is to work quickly, as the liners do dry fast and once they set, they will not budge!
And this set definitely will not break the bank at an amazing $78.00. Pop into your nearest Mecca Cosmetica and grab one ASAP – or head online to www.meccacosmetica.co.nz
