Shining Stars | Stila Cosmetics Transcendence Holiday 2016 Collection | Overview & Swatches | labellesirene.ca

Hey Beauties! 

The holiday season is all about adding a little bit of glamour and sparkle into your life whether it be through home decor, festive outfits or a makeup look. Well, Stila Cosmetics has you totally covered for any luxe beauty situation with their Transcendence Holiday 2016 Collection and it is beyond gorgeous. 

The Transcendence Holiday Collection is beautifully presented in metallic gold packaging with embossed lettering and a delicate snowflake print and it contains 5 gift sets, 4 of which I managed to get my hands on!

The collection is designed around their "Be the Light" motto and it is represented by the multi-dimensional shades and out of this world finishes. 

The Transcendence Collection features 3 different gift sets that revolve around Stila's famous Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks and just like last year they have caused a bit of mass hysteria (rightly so).

The Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks are by far my absolute favourite liquid lipsticks with an incredible shade range and a formula that just won't quit! They are ultra creamy and apply like a dream. They are very opaque and never streaky, they cover in one swipe but layer beautifully over themselves and lip liners. Once they set, they truly do not budge, smudge or transfer and they do last ALL day long. 

Their miniature sizes are the perfect way to test out the range in a number of shades without spending a lot. I personally love collecting these sets so that I can try as many shades as possible!

There are two smaller sets available - the Bright & Bold Trio and the Naturally Nude Trio - both of which retail for $20 USD with 3 lipsticks each (o.o5 fl oz). 

The Bright & Bold Trio contains my favourite red lipstick Beso (a true blue red), Viola (a cool lavender), and Lume (a limited edition deep fuschia). 

The Naturally Nude Trio contains their cult classic shade Patina (a dusty rose), Perla (a pale dusty pink), and Serenata (my new addiction - a cognac rose). Both Perla and Serenata are limited edition.

The Stay All Day Sparkle All Night Set ($39 USD) is an incredibly exciting set with 5 (0.05 fl oz) lipsticks and the brand new Glitterati Lip Top Coat! It features 3 must-have staple shades and 2 new limited edition ones. It comes with my all time favourite nude Baci (a nude mauve), Patina (a dusty rose), Bacca (a raspberry), Fresco (a LE mid-tone dusty rose), and Rubino (a LE beet red).

The Glitterati Lip Top Coat in Transcend is an absolutely gorgeous product that has quickly become a favourite in my collection. It is a liquid shimmer that consists of a thin base with a slightly pink tone and a stunning ultra iridescent shimmer. It gives you the ability to instantly transform any lipstick into a sparkly, glittery, holiday lip!

As it sets, the base evaporates to leave only the fine shimmer behind on the lips. While adding a gorgeous glittery finish it tends to affect the transfer proof properties so you will leave a bit of shimmer on your sweetheart if you get caught under the mistletoe.

The Star Light Star Bright Highlighting Palette ($39 USD) takes strobing to the next level with 3 radiance-enhancing highlighters with an ultra-smooth, bouncy texture that can give a subtle glow or an intense sheen. 

These highlighters have an incredibly unique texture that melts into the skin for an ultra-lightweight, barely-there feel and a look that is naturally radiant. The hybrid formula between cream and powder feels insanely smooth to the touch and translates beautifully to the skin without accentuating any texture. 

They are infused with ultrafine light diffusing particles and an incredibly fine shimmer that gives an almost wet look to the cheeks. The pigmentation is perfect at just the right strength that can be built up easily with a dense brush or sheered out with fingers.

The palette features Transcendence (an opalescent pink for a bold ethereal glow), Kitten (a shimmering nude pink for a brightened complexion), and Bronze (a sunkissed radiance for an all over tanned look). 

The three shades are intended to be used individually or mixed together for an all over glow on the cheeks, lips or eyes.

The last set in the collection is the Morning to Moonlight Waterproof Eyeliner Trio ($35 USD) which features Stila's best-selling eyeliners, the infamous Stay All Day Liquid Liner in black and the famous Smudgestick Cream Pencils in Stingray and Lionfish.

The Stila Cosmetics Transcendence Holiday Collection is beyond gorgeous and has so many incredible options for the perfect gift but it is selling out fast so make sure to grab yours before they are gone for good! 

You can find it at Stila, Ulta, Sephora & Shoppers Drug Mart. 

Happy Holiday Beauties!

  3. Fabulous review! I adore Stila but for some reason, I don't think about it often enough. I too love their Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks, and I think I need that affordable trio for $20. I actually prefer the mini size to full size. I hardly ever use up a lipstick since I own more than 150!

  5. These all look so beautiful! I wish I'd seen this before I put my make-up order in for Christmas - I think I might still need to get my hands on a box of those sparkle all night sets - love the colours, and I've never seen the highlighting palette before but I think I might need one! I have their stay all day foundation and I love it, I think it's the best one I've ever owned :)
