What started out as a vision of makeup artist Jeanine Lobell, came into being as Stila Cosmetics in 1994. Since then, Stila rapidly grew and created some of the most successful brands in makeup and has managed to break into the fragrance business as well.
With its growth came several financial setbacks which facilitated exchange of management over Stila. Estee Lauder acquired Stila in 1999 then later sold it to Sun Capital in 2006. Since 2009, Stila Cosmetics has become Stila Corporation when it was acquired by Lynn Tilton Group’s Patriarch Partners, LLC, a holding firm.

Fair skinned or dark skinned women will also love Stila Lip Glaze in Black Cherry and Persimmon. Both are deeper pigmented than the rest of the shades in the brand’s color palette but will not tend to overpower any skin tone.
