Spring Forward with Stila Smudge Stick in Mint Julep

I was aghast when I realized this Sunday is ‘Spring Forward’…where we all lose a precious hour of sleep!
I don’t think I can handle this.
However, my new Stila Smudge Stick in Mint Julep is bound to make me look bright-eyed and bushy -tailed come Sunday morning brunch. Some of you may have seen me wearing it today on my Instagram, and I have to say, I am in love with this mint liner!

Stila has been a brand that I have neither shunned nor really gravitated to. However, I am really impressed with their Spring 2014 launches of new Smudge Stick colors and other more out of the box shades and offerings to their line. They have really impressed me, especially with this liner.

Mint Julep ($20) is a true mint liner that is creamy, glides on so smoothly, is paraben free, and is not animal tested. Vitamin E and C give it creaminess and act as slight anti-aging agents on your delicate eye-lid area.
What I really love about this product is that is lasts ALL day. When I posted a picture of my eye look on Instagram, I had already been wearing it for over a full work day. After, I have since gone out to dinner and worn it the rest of the night, around 14 hours, and it looked like I had just put it on. I have oily lids, and yes I did prime, but this was still incredible. I also really dig how fresh the color is, and that you can create some mod looks with it.

To create this look, I lined my eye with a very thin line of NYX liquid black liner, and then followed the shape with Stila Smudge Stick in Mint Julep, continuing to the little ‘wing’ of my black liner. I kept the rest of my eye simple with a wash of nude shadow and some mascara. This would also look create on the waterline, as a thicker line, or worn all by itself.

This is a great liner for the upcoming Spring and Summer months because it is unexpected and waterproof! Yes! Can’t wait to tuck this into my beach bag!
Happy Springing Forward Pandas!

  1. Aghhh, I have to work this weekend, too. D: I've been dreading it all week, lol.

    I'm veeeerrrry neutral leaning when it comes to eye makeup but this looks SO COOL! It reminds me of the NARS liner that came out with Euphrate last spring. I never picked up the liner but it's kind of been stuck in my head. I honestly don't know where I'd wear such a look or even if it'd look alright on me but I'm dying to give it a try πŸ™‚
