Review: Stila Holiday Essentials – Travel Size Cosmetic Kit

I love travel-size cosmetic!  They are perfect for the small party purses.  So, I bought this little holiday essentials kit at Sephora when I saw it even though I was there to buy presents for others.  Side note: I love gifting myself!  ;-)  Everyone should gift oneself every once in a while!  It feels great!  Try it!

In this Stila Holiday Essentials Kit, we get 3 things: classic bright red (Beso) liquid lipstick gloss, waterproof black felt-tip pen liquid eyeliner and shimmer nude/beige colour “Kitten” eyeshadow.  It’s perfect for the holiday look – just think… classic cat-eyes and red lips with a LBD!

I bought this kit mainly for the “Kitten” eyeshadow and the waterproof eyeliner.  I normally would not wear bright red lip colour, especially this intense red!  It’s a scary thing to try!  Well… I stepped out of my “comfort zone” and tried it.  What a pleasant surprise!  This red doesn’t seem to make me look like I have jaundice.  ;-)  It’s pretty chic!  I kind of like the bright red for the holidays!

The only thing with this bright red lip gloss is you’d apply it carefully.  It’s not like a nude lip colour that you just glide it on without a mirror.  You need to be more precise with it.  You need to watch where you put it and let it set for a bit before you drink that coffee.

In short, I highly recommend everyone to try this kit.  It’s under $20 at Sephora.
