One of my favorite things about spring and summer is how collections shift gears into products that make your skin glow. Stila’s summer collection is all about that! While I only have a few pieces from the new product line-up to share with you, the rest of the collection is all about complexion—and it’s all about the glow-factor.
New product breakdown (please note that not all items are featured):
- One Step Illuminate — skin tone illuminating serum
- All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer — three shades; Pink Shimmer, Bronze Shimmer, Rose Gold Shimmer
- Baked Setting Powders — three shades; Set & Illuminate, Set & Correct, Set & Bronze
- Stay All Day Waterproof Mascara
- Custom Color Blush — Self-Adjusting Bronze
- Passion Fruit Crush Lip & Cheek Stain — shimmering red-orange
I’ve worn the One Step Illuminate, Stay All Day Waterproof Mascara, and Passion Fruit Crush Lip & Cheek Stain, check the deets!
One Step Illuminate is kind of similar to some of the other One Step complexion serums in the line. There are pigments suspended in a clear, gel-like serum that blend together as the pump is pressed. Illuminate focuses mainly on radiance-boosters; Kitten (LOVE!), pale pink, and shimmering champagne tones. These three shades create a slightly warm pink champagne shade on the skin. While I’ve only tried this on my pale skin, I have a good hunch that it will look even better on medium and dark skin tones!
This product touts some skincare benefit claims. To be perfectly honest, I don’t ever rely on my color cosmetics for skincare benefits—but according to Stila, this contains their Youth-Revival Bio-Available Mineral Complex. Its pupose is to hydrate while controlling oil production. I still had some breakthrough oil in my T-zone while wearing, but it’s totally normal for me. If you’re excessively oily, you’ll likely still need to blot after a few hours. I REALLY like this product because it definitely boosts radiance in my skin, and everyone notices it!

Passion Fruit Crush Lip & Cheek Stain is similar to their other ‘crush’ stains. It’s a gel-like stain housed in a click-pen style component with a lip brush. The shade is a slightly tangerine-red tone, which is all the rage right now. It has a little shimmer to it which makes it super pretty on the skin—especially gorgeous on the cheeks! The staying power on my cheeks was all day, and on my lips, I needed a little touch-up after two hours. While it does slightly stain the lips, it does lose its shimmer after a bit.

Stay All Day Mascara is a waterproof mascara that is supposed to volumize the lashes. Typically, I’m not a waterproof mascara fan, but this time of year—one is almost an essential. It gets incredibly hot here, especially during the summer, and I have to amp up my makeup with products that don’t want to slide off the second I start to glisten! Stay All Day really does stay put for me, and what I really like about it is that it doesn’t make my lashes feel super stiff. It also didn’t flake—which is often a problem for me because of how waterproof polymers work. This one contains coconut oil and mango butter, and I’m convinced it makes a difference. I definitely achieve volume with this baby, and since it stays put, you’ll likely need an oil-based remover to take it off. I did!

My fave product by far was the One Step Illuminate. It worked similar to a primer, but provided the radiance of highlighting products, in literally one step!
