HUGE™ Extreme Lash Mascara – Value $23

This mascara is one of my new top favorites! (Right up there with tarte!) It provides volume, length, no clumping, and lasted the entire day without smudges, etc.

(Plus it is free of parabens, sulfates and phthalates!)

La Quill Precision Eye Liner Brush – Value $32

Got Inked™ Cushion Eye Liner in Smoky Quartz Ink – Value $28

I love the cushion sponge applicator of this eye liner! (I have a close up photo of the sponge below). The formula of the eyeliner is super pigmented with a little shimmer, and goes on so smoothly. (Free of parabens, sulfates and phthalates too!)

The brush is awesome too. Here it is apart:

And when you attach the pieces it has a calligraphy pen-look! It is officially the prettiest makeup brush in my collection!

Here is a better look at the eyeliner cushion sponge:

(I also swatched this shade in a picture further along in the review).

This box comes with a card detailing the items included.

stila-boxes-lipgloss

Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black – Value $22

This liquid eyeliner works well. Nothing too special compared to other liquid eyeliners, but it does the job and stays put. (Swatched below).

Stay All Day® Liquid Lipstick in Beso – Value $24

I’ve sampled this liquid lipstick before thanks to Birchbox and it offers intense pigment! The finish is somewhat matte, but not too drying, and I would recommend adding a balm or lipgloss over it for a little moisture.

Swatched: Got Inked™ Cushion Eye Liner in Smoky Quartz Ink, Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black, Stay All Day® Liquid Lipstick in Beso

stila-boxes-primer

One Step Correct – Value $36

This is both a primer, a color corrector, and a brightening serum. Here is what it looks like out of the bottle:

And here is what it looks like when you realize you just swatched way too much on your hand and try to rub it in:

stila-boxes-swatch-2

Good news! When I applied a smaller amount on my face I had no problem with it completely becoming invisible. I didn’t think I noticed a huge decrease in redness, but I my foundation looked more even when applied, so I’m happy with this product and can see a subtle difference compared to my regular primer/foundation combo.

Verdict: I think both of these boxes are great values if you will use all the items. My personal favorite is the Modern Goddess Box because I will use all the items, the makeup brush is so fun, and all products are free of parabens and phthalates! I like the Best Sellers box as well, but I don’t wear a bold lip often, so the liquid lipstick won’t get much use.

What do you think of these Stila Beauty Boxes?

FYI – If you are planning on buying one or both, make sure to place your order today (10/27) to take advantage of the 25% off and free shipping coupon!

  1. you did a good review on this one Liz! love the swatches

    • Thanks! Glad to hear the swatches are helpful! 🙂

  2. These both look like awesome boxes! So sad I got the notification for this in an email on 10/28 rather than seeing it yesterday and missed out on the sale 🙁 Oh well, it wasn’t meant to be 😉
    I have a couple shades of the liquid lipstick but Beso isn’t one that I got from Birchbox. That looks like a nice color.

    • Just updated the post with a 20% off coupon. Sorry! 🙁

      • Awesome! Thank you!

  3. I love the one step correct! I have been using it for years. I just put it on over lotion with sunscreen at it works great for me, no foundation needed.

  4. I recently began using Stila products again after a long break. I’m absolutely loving their liquid blush pots and the liquid lip stains. In fact I just bought a 3 pack including another Beso on Sun at Ulta, as well as a second blush. I’ve actually seen a major improvement in their products in general in the last year. I’ve also had some not so great ones though they usually came from HauteLook and ideel sales so I take them for what they’re worth since they’re generally much older stock.

  5. I think Stila is one of the most over-rated brands out there. Their no smudge eyeliner doesn’t last and that mascara is so clumpy and at the end of the day I have raccoon eyes!
