Stila Kitten Collection

Today we are looking at yet another collection however this one is a permanent offering from Stila and has been for several years now.  Kitten at one time (and might still be) their best-selling eye shadow shade and it inspired a whole line of products in the same, ultra-flattering shade.  Kitten is a pink champagne that somehow always manages to look great however I wear it or whatever look that I pair it up with, there are very few products that can make the same claims and that is one of the huge reasons that this is such an iconic product line.  The only other shade that I can compare this to is the Midnight Cowboy shades from Urban Decay.  Like Kitten, it has been used in all types of makeup items for the simple reason that it is a universally flattering shade and works well with the trends from every single season.  I may buy new makeup shades every single season, but staples like this are the backbone of my collection...

Kitten is described as a "shimmering nude pink", it has a very shimmery finish and is an eye shadow that is best applied with a finger to build the shimmer and keep it in place.  The eye shadow was the first product available in this shade and then the rest of the line followed.  I often pair this eye shadow with bright lips or a more natural makeup look.  I bought the eye shadow years ago at Sephora and I have never regretted this purchase, I want to order other products in the line.  I am most interested in the lip gloss but I am betting that I could make the highlighter work well for me too.

Here are the products in the Kitten collection...

Smudge Pot - The verdict is in, and Smudge Pots take the prize for sexy eyes!  This unique gel eye liner and shadow is an innovative alternative to traditional powder and liquid formulas.  This clever little gel has an inky intensity that leaves powder shadows in the dust.  A favorite for the sultry, smoky eye.  Apply with a liner brush for razor-sharp precision or smudge it with your fingers for more complete coverage.  Remember to always close the airtight lid to keep the gel soft and pliable.

All of the products in this collection are the same shade of pinky champagne shimmer, I bought the eye shadow years ago and have been using it for years.  I don't know that I would buy the lip gloss in it, I don't think that this shade would be as flattering on me as the other products in this shade are.  I would love to own the Smudge Pot in this collection to wear against strong lip looks.  The last product that I want from this collection is the highlighter, this will be great to wear out at night.

Stila's Kitten is a cult product for many good reasons, it is a universally flattering shade and works with any eye or lip look that I can come up with.  If you haven't tried this shade, I strongly suggest that you start with one of the eye makeup products and see how well it works!
