Stila is putting out a cute series of limited edition travel themed makeup palettes. The first is Stila – Stila Girl Travel Palette-Road to Radiance. The palette includes 4 eye shadow shades and 1 convertible color for, get this, only $10.
Launching alongside each palette, a travel journal detailing each Stila girl’s adventures is available on StilaCosmetics.com. Each diary entry includes the hottest spots in the hottest cities to visit this summer. You can read the travel journals here. Stila travel journals.
I swatched the Stila Road to Radiance: Across the U.S.A. palette, which includes the following:
· Stila Eye Shadow in Southern Belle (mauve)
· Stila Eye Shadow in Valley Girl (pink)
· Stila Eye Shadow in City Chick (alloy)
· Stila Convertible Color in Hibiscus
Below are swatches:
I found that the convertible color worked great on both lips and cheeks. when on my arm, the eye shadow seemed a bit less pigmented to me than Stila shadows often are, and I suspect that might be the case in order to keep the price at what it is. Regardless, the shadow wore quite well for me when I tried on my eyes and the shades are pretty and work well for a daytime look. Or beef up the use of the darker shade for evening. At $10 the Stila palette is a good value.
