Barbie is still looking good for 50, the number she will be celebrating this year. Stila is offering a limited edition makeup collection in honor of America’s favorite plastic vixen.

There are 4 paint can makeup sets that go for $40. You really get a lot in them. Each “can” has a featured Barbie from various decades. The trios and cans are printed with the doll of choice:

1959 Ponytail Doll: This is the “classic” of the cans. The 3 Pan Palette has a sea blue shimmer eyeshadow, a matte black shadow that pairs nicely as a liner, and a beautiful peachy coral shimmer blush. There is a Lip Color in Ponytail which is a luscious matte red and a Liquid Liner in Black.

1971 Malibu Doll: This is the pretty summer look of the cans. The 3 Pan Palette has a pale pink shimmer eyeshadow that looks amazing on the brow bone, a light blue shimmer eyeshadow, and a bronzer that looks great on complexion or eyes. There is a Lip Glaze in Malibu which is a pale pinky peach shimmer that is so pretty. It can be worn with warm or cool colors. The last item is a Lash Visor Waterproof Mascara in Black. This is the “blonde” makeup kit. It would look killer on those with Barbie like complexions.

1980 Foxy Doll: This is like the “80’s” look but don’t be scared of it, it is pretty tame. The 3 Pan Palette has a taupe shimmer eyeshadow, brown with gold shimmers eyeshadow, and a matte reddish berry blush. There is a Lip Glaze in Foxy which is a sheer coral orange and a Waterproof Lash Visor Mascara in Black. This is a pretty kit and I really think it can work on medium to deep skintones as well.

2000 Jewel Doll: This is the “hip and modern” doll that resembles a little Disney Channel diva. The 3 Pan Palette contains a beautiful tan shadow with pink shimmers, a golden brown eyeshadow with shimmer, and a medium pearly pink blush. There is a Lip Glaze in Jewel which is a beautiful pink shimmer and a Multi-Effects Mascara in Black.

There is a Talking Palette Eye Shadow that goes for $40. There is an icy pink shimmer, medium pink with gold shimmers, rich cranberry, and an iris purple. I find that for me at least, these colors when used together make me look like I’ve been in a fight. I look tired and well, abused. The pigments aren’t so bold so they give a strange slapped and bruised look.

I like the cans. I just wish I could mix and match some of the colors but that is understood when purchasing any set. I’m not wild about the Talking Palette. The colors aren’t great and I don’t want to pay extra tohave my cosmetics talk to me. Creepy. All are available on sephora.com.
