Ok, so, most of us agree that the new Stila Travel Palettes are all about the cuteness and the price but not necessarily the contents. I was a wee disappointed in the USA palette and honestly the upcoming Tokyo one is doing nothing for me either.
However, Stila Pretty in Paris….
You need it!
A $10 palette from Stila that features four eye shadows and a convertible color!
The packaging gets props from me. It features a Stila Girl with the Eiffel Tower behind her. I’m all about bringing in the Stila girls. They don’t get nearly enough time in front of the camera lately so I absolutely adore that Stila has brought them back to be featured in the new Travel Palettes.
As you may already know Stila is releasing five total palettes all for $10 each, all for a limited time. Each palette features four eye shadows and one convertible color. I’ve noticed so far that the shades are new and possibly exclusive to these palettes. Pretty in Paris, like USA, contains a convertible color shade I’ve never seen or heard of before which is entitled Rosebud.
First off Pretty in Paris couldn’t be released at a better time as it contains some great Fall shades. Rosebud is a dusky rosy, peach shade that warms up cheeks and lips beautifully. The four shadows in the palette include Crepe (pale creamy pink), Cherie (dusky cranberry), Jolie (dirty brown berry), and chocolat (matte brown). As per our discussion in prior posts about these palettes, the shadows simply do not live up to the original Stila shadow formula. They are considerably different in both texture and pigmentation. I am happy to report that Pretty in Paris has way better pigmentation than USA and the shades came across rich although they aren’t as velvety-like as Stila’s normal range but still for the $10 price tag, I’d say they are pretty darn nice. I had no problems with creasing or fading and the shadows held true throughout the day.
The palette gives a warm, Fall vibe but not necessarily reminiscent of Paris in my opinion.
Convertible Color is a cream therefore things can get messy quick with this palette since there are four powder shadows living right next door to it. If you apply carefully you can avoid a hot mess happening however those who don’t like powder and cream combos in a palette may wish to skip.
- Anyone wanting a full Fall makeup look for a mere $10!
- Stila fans!
- Fans of the Stila girls (yay for Stila girl packaging!).
- Anyone who collects cute makeup bits and bobs!
- Anyone who dislikes palettes that combine creams and powers!
- Anyone who loves Stila’s eyeshadow formula (you may find yourself disappointed that the shadows are the typical texture you know and love!).
I think Stila did a great job with Pretty in Paris and so far, for me, it’s the best palette of the releases that are currently available. It’ll make a great Fall palette and is particularly nice for students who can’t afford a ton of high end makeup. I liked how the shades looked on my brown eyes. The palette on a whole is very flattering and well worth its price tag!
This one I definitely Muse Approve for purchase!
