Stila Glitter On The Go – Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow Set

I picked up this little set for my best friend at Christmas time, and was pretty sad Mecca didn’t restock it once it sold out. But to my surprise and delight, I discovered this trio had returned with many new releases earlier this month.
