Bargain buy: Stila Merry and Bright Collectible Holiday Palette and Lip Glaze

Stila Merry & Bright Collectible Holiday Palette & Lip Glaze £12.50 (reduced to £.7.50)

Hi everyone and Happy Friday! I wanted to share this review with you for a while, but I totally forgot about it.
I picked up this palette before Christmas and I only used it a couple of times, but it was a bargain! I paid £7.50 for it and the Lip Glaze and I also ordered one for my next giveaway (fingers crossed for reaching 4000 followers). 

The palette consists of 6 eye shadows and a cream lip/cheek colour. I tried a couple of products from Stila and I really like them, so I was very excited to give this beaut a go.  
The pigmentation of the eye shadows isn't amazing, but they are very long lasting if used with a good primer. The shape of the pans is a bit tricky, so I had to use a small eyeshadow brush to apply them, but it doesn't bother me. The selection of colours is lovely, with nudes, browns and a black - perfect for a smokey eye or a natural look. 

My favourite thing about this little palette is the lip & cheek colour. It is  a gorgeous peachy shade and the creamy formula is very easy to blend. I am wearing it as a blusher on the pictures below. The shade is called Lillium and you can get in in the Convertible Colour range of Stila's Blushers as well. It is quite popular in the blogosphere actually. The lip glaze is lovely too and it adds a nice shine to the lips, with delicate shimmer and a hint of nude. 

Overall, I really like this little palette and I am glad that I ordered it. I think that it is sold out on atm, but you will be able to win it on my blog in the future :)

Have a fabulous weekend!

  2. Haven't tried Stila products and theres actually not many products that seem to interest me to be honest. I am aware that their quality is great for the prices you get some products for but i just don't seem to like their packaging. When it comes to products, i am a sucker for packaging and i dislike cardboard palettes because they tend to get tatty easily. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on it though, i am glad you're enjoying it and it works for you hehe :)

    Have a great day~ <3

  6. This is such a pretty lip glaze! I have a few from stila and think they are gorgeous and they last for ages but I find them a bit too sticky.
