Stila launch their Natural Romance collection for Spring 2021

STILA have launched Natural Romance, a collection of fresh products designed to celebrate the arrival of spring. Intended to conjure “brighter days, idyllic evenings, and blooming romance”, the collection delivers soft, light products, from the new bronze gold Trifecta Metallica Lip, Eye & Cheek Stick, to the Tinted Moisturiser Skin Balm, my favourite of the collection.

Trifecta Metallica Lip, Eye & Cheek Stick in Bronze Gold, £23

The range is designed to softly enhance your skin: Stila’s beloved All Day Liquid Lipsticks are enriched with vitamin E and avocado oil, recast in blooming, petal shades, the One Step Correct Brightening Finishing Powder glides over shine, pores, redness and shadows, and the Stay All Day Dual-Ended Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner boasts the tiniest of brushes for the most delicate of strokes.

I like the brown shade of the Eye Liner best, as a softer, deeper match for the blush-tones of the rest of the collection.

The Skin Balm is free of sulfates, parabens, formadehydes, phthalates and fragrance, and is available in eight shades of sheer, perfecting glaze. The formula is buttery; it blends seamlessly with the skin, lightly veiling imperfections with its creamy, glowy formula. It can be layered, and set with powder, but perfumes best as a light balm perhaps dabbed on with fingers or swept under eyes with the densely packed and cruelty free Double-Ended Complexion Brush.

Tinted Moisturiser Skin Balm and Double-Ended Complexion Brush, £25 each

All Day Liquid Lipstick, in Promessa, £17

After a seemingly never-ending winter, Stila’s romantic new collection feels wonderfully spring-like.
