Stila order from Haute Look- my first experience with smudge pots!
I can't believe I haven't blogged in a week! I've been reading everyone's blogs, but not commenting much. It's just laziness tbh. Every time Stila comes to Haute Look, I always eyeball the Barbie Loves Stila smudge pots, but I never buy them. So after passing on them the last two or three times, I finally grabbed them when Stila was up on Haute Look a few weeks ago. They were $8 each. I got Cobalt Clutch and Purple Pumps. The packaging on these is so cool, the picture on the lid is the kind that change depending on the angle, if that makes sense. I took a video so you could see the effect, but for some reason Blogger won't let me upload it. It is an AVI file, which it says is compatible, so I'm not sure what the problem is. If someone could help me out, that would be great; I really want you guys to see the neat packaging! Here is the most color accurate picture I could get, so of course Blogger decided to flip it. When I went to Sephora in my town for the first time with my best friend, she wanted a good cream liner and of course I told her to get a smudge pot, even though I've never tried it, since they are held in such high regard. I know she really likes it, so I was kind of disappointed with these- they turn out a lot more sheer than I was expecting, I'd have to go over the line a few times to make it nice and opaque. Are regular smudge pots better quality than these? No flash, color accurate swatches. If you enlarge this picture, you can see how sheer these look. Since I haven't actually used them as liners yet, I can't say much more about these. I am glad I paid only $8 for them, because I would have felt ripped off at the full price of $20. They're both still available on the Stila website. I also got a Stila High Shine Lip Color is shade Louise. I LOVE Stila lip products. I got my Urban Decay order from Haute Look today, so tomorrow I'll show you that too. Urban Decay is my favorite pricey brand, and I have a variety of their products already, would you like to see those as well?
