I took advantage of Tammy's blog sale and purchased this gorgeous Stila palette. It's part of their Indian Summer 2009 Collection. This palette was on the market for $28 but I saw Beautycrunch & Sephora sold them for $10 in the end of the season.
I love the theme of this collection, the palette comes in gold cardboard box and it has pretty bindi attached on the cover.
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. It's compact, slim and sleek. The only duds is probably thin plastic cover that needs extra caution not to be pressed down to the eyeshadow. Other than that, I think it's a great packaging, no brush/applicator attached but I don't really mind it since I hardly use them anyway.
Contains of 4 colors,
- red copper
- bronzey gold
- greenish teal
- burgundy purple.
I would give them 4/5. Stila eyeshadows are usually buttery soft but these are on the firmer side, which I prefer because I have such an oily lids and soft eyeshadow creases faster on me. The burgundy purple color is harder to swatch as they look darker (almost blackish) on my skin, but it has gorgeous purple sparkle that would be awesome for crease color.
All & all I think these are such a cool palette and a great deal for the price (if you can snatch them at $10), I honestly don't know where you can find this at the moment but you can try stalking Beautycrunch or Ebay, who knew you can score some good deal.
