Stila Modern Goddess Fall 2015 Collection

Stila Modern Goddess Fall 2015

The Stila Modern Goddess Fall 2015 Collection has some really cool stuff in it and I want to share it with you.

This fall, mythic beauty meets modern-day muse to inspire a collection so heavenly, it could only come from Stila. New, never seen before formulas and truly groundbreaking textures grace the skin and envelop it in ethereal shades. Striking colors play off each other in bold and unforgettable ways. Skin is so flawless, it emanates an otherworldly brilliance that can only be described as divine. Meet the Modern Goddess, a daring makeup dichotomy that blends old world and new into a magnificent mélange of strong and feminine, chic yet soft, and opulent with a touch of whimsy.

They aren’t kidding when they say there are some new textures in the collection and I think I might have found my newest foundation fave!
