I wasn't originally going to review this palette. As I thought this was still a limited edition palette. Turns out it's available on Stila's website, so I guess it's not limited edition afterall. After that quick realization, I thought that this palette definately need a review! If you are not familiar with Stila's converrtible lip and cheek colors, let me tell you. They are amazing Little pots of Dewey, creamy goodness. They are also $25 each!
This palette is "only" $49 and you get 12 grams of product, compared to the 4,5 grams you get in one regular convertible pot. So the palette is definately a great deal. The packaging is pretty cool too. It's very sturdy, and I could easily throw it in my purse for touch ups, it's not too big and bulky, it has a great big mirror and a good magnetic closure.
You get 12 different colors, where 8 of them are from their permanent line and the last 4 are exclusive to this palette. So if you were to fall in love with one of the permanent Shades, you could just go buy the full size. So this is a great way to try out some different colors from the range. And believe me, they are going to last you a long time even though they are less than 1/4 of a full convertible color each
I'm sooo pleased with this palette. I originally just bought it, to use on the lips, and it really does perform well on the lips. But they are amazing on the cheeks. They stay on all day and some of the Shades leave a Little bit of a stain behind. I love that you get some very neutral/natural options, some pinks, a coral, a peach, some deeper Shades and an amazing bright fuschia. The lighter colors, seem more opaque and the darker brighter colors are more sheer, wich makes it more wearable on the cheeks. You definately don't need to worry about pigmentation with these, they are very buildable.
