Curator's corner: catching up

Stila and the City of Light

In honor of my recent trip to Paree, I thought I'd post about Stila's 2nd travel palette in their 5-part series.   I really loved the journal by Stila girl "Chelsea".  She talks about the rose-flavored macarons at Ladurée (they seriously became like my crack in Paris - I came back to Ladurée twice to get more after my initial visit!) and the Cafe Marly at the Louvre, where we enjoyed a beautiful view of the glass pyramid on our last night in Paris.

Now on to the palette itself.  Here's the outside (forgive the blurriness, for the life of me I couldn't get a good clear picture!)  I love that she's wearing a striped top - they were everywhere in Paris.  If she had a little neutral-colored scarf tied loosely around her neck she'd look just like all the chic Parisian women I saw!

In looking at this palette I remembered Stila did another travel series ages ago, in trio form.  Here's Pretty in Paris next to Passage to Paris:

Paris comparison

In terms of Paris represented or hinted at in makeup packaging, I think Nathalie Lété's work for Bourjois is still my favorite, but this palette is adorable too.  Next destination for Stila:  Tokyo!
