SURF AND TURF: Stila has teamed with Quiksilver Inc.-owned girls brand Roxy for a collection of seven items launching next month at 31 Quiksilver stores and on roxy.com.

Sun protection is important too. The $32 illuminating tinted moisturizer is SPF 15, and the $32 bronzing tinted moisturizer is SPF 20. The other items in the collection are a $22 lip glaze and $14 travel palette. The collaboration’s tag line “Stila Loves Roxy” is prominent on the products’ packaging, as are images of breaking waves.
