Not for Me
By Buys too much stuff
from Ottawa, ON
I was very disappointed with this showstopper. I only tried it recently, but the only thing I liked was the eyeliner.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The HD beauty balm is not great and doesn't match light skintones. The eyebrow pen dried out the first week. The cheek colour was decent, very peachy on me and highly pigmented so only use a little. The mascara was ordinary. The eyeliner I liked and the lip glazes are good but for me only one colour looked good. I wouldn't recommend this kit there are much better choices.

Not Impressed with the Show Stopper
By Susie Q
from Winnipeg, Manitoba
I was very disappointed in the products received and agree with the previous reviews. Especially the brow liner which I was eagerly awaiting as I don't have very much brows. This did not work at all with me and I had to use my IT pencil which always works.Haven't used the eyeliner yet but everything else was mediocre.

Not as good as I expected
from Kelowna, B.C.
I got this as the showstopper. I am very glad I did not pay full price. At first (for 2 days) I did enjoy the brown filler, but it seemed to either dry up or ran out, so much for that. As for the mascara, it's just ok. I found it does stay on all day. I don't like the liner, so gave it to a friend who may like it. The BB cream does very little for my skin and makes my eyes water. Might as well just use a good quality moisturizer and my usual foundation. The blush is kind of overly bright and I can't believe this is supposed to compliment every skin tone. I also gave this away to a friend with a different skin tone. I liked the lip glosses well enough, but I do not like the way the product is delivered. It comes out sporadically...too much at one application, not enough at another. Overall, disappointed.
stila showstopper, great eyeliner
I bought the showstopper, as it was a good deal and I am familiar with stila products. The eyeliner is easy to apply and stays on...love it. The face cream was new to me and was nice as was the brow liner. Blush is ok but requires a very light touch. I used to love the cream eyeliner in the pots but tsc does not offer these anymore. The lip gloss colors, I don't really care for and the mascara is not great, for these reasons I gave it a 3 star rating. That said, I do like Stila.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Found there was too much "hype" about this kit. Not all of the products deliverd well. The mini mascara is awful! It is DRY with what seems like NO product in the tube.(I recommend IT cosmetics mascara) The cheek blush was okay but like the other reviewer said, be careful applying cause it can go on rather "bright" and look clownish. The brow pen fell really short. It to has very little product in it and seemed like it was going dry just after a couple applications! I used it but had to finish brows with my Trusty IT COSMETICS brow power. The glosses are sticky and mediocre. I don't think this kit is worth the price not even at the showstopper price. I must say that I do like their cream eyeliner in the "pots" which TSC doesn't offer any more...?
Not really mpresse with this poduct
from Ottawa, Ontario
The only good thing is the BBY Cream. I do not care for the eyeshadow colous. I do however, liks is the brow pencil but not he eye liner or mascara,they both smudge.

Love Stila Products :)
By Positive Michelle
from Fredericton NB
I have used Stila products for a number of years and have always enjoyed the results. I purchased the show stopper and knew that I would be pleased with the products. I enjoy the feel of "HD beauty balm" on my face and the fresh look it gives me. The eyeliner and brow color are beautiful to apply. The eyeliner is wonderful if you know how to apply it next to and on the eyelash. Love, love the cheek color, it makes me look fresh. I would tell anyone that enjoys Stila products to buy this and to just enjoy feeling beautiful.

from Kitchener Ontario
I have worn make-up for 45 years now and have experimented with many brands and now value my favorites that are tried and true. I went totally outside of my element by purchasing this 8 piece Show Stopper. I had to give it a 2 star as I did not try the Beauty Balm yet and felt the other 7 items in the package were not for me. Custom Coral Blush does not go with all complexions as I had a few negative comments on this cheek color on me. You have to ensure you use a touch on your brush or you end up looking clownish.Waterproof mascara did not thicken or lengthen lashes and was very difficult to remove with my normal make-up removers which happen to be for waterproof mascaras.Waterproof eyeliner did not apply evenly. I should have known this would happen as when this was shown being applied during the airing the make-up artist did a very uneven job of applying it.Stay all day brow colour did nothing. During the airing it was noted for over tweezed and very sparse brows. I had to use one of the three products I have on hand to outline and fill then added this for some texturing - useless on my brows.Cobalt lip glaze was a pain to get the colour up the tube and it just gobbed on (real waste of product)even when the small brush head got loaded with the glaze if felt very rough and pulled the skin on the lips. I also purchased the brush set with pouch and the Not so Nude colour pallet. I would not recommend them either, as they were both mediocre and similar kits are available at many retail stores for far less money. I normally am not this critical but the price far outweighs the product.
