Stila has two new On the Red Carpet Palettes featuring six eyeshadows, highlighter, blush, and a Smudge Stick that’s available exclusively at QVC.

And The Winner Is…is the warmer of the two palettes and has a nice array of beautiful nudes and naturals.

Take a peek!

Ok, don’t get mad, it does contain Kitten Highlighter…essentially this is not really a highlighter, it’s kinda the eyeshadow disguised as a highlighter. It’s been released in prior palettes has a very heavy, vevet-y texture with a ton of glittery frostiness. It’s pretty but it’s not something I’d suggest for your face. As much as I love Kitten as an eyeshadow I think it proves too much as a highlighting powder.

Now that being I said…this is a nice little palette that features some very pretty nudes.

You get:
Eyeshadows

  • Leading Lady (matte creamy beige)
  • Nominee (matte beige)
  • Breakout Role (matte mid-tone brown)
  • Acceptance Speech (shimmery golden bronze)
  • A-List (shimmery copper)
  • Honor (shimmery rosy pink)

Highlighter

  • Kitten

Convertible Color

  • Lillium (dusky pink)

Smudge Stick

  • Lionfish (bronze brown)

Possibly the nicest thing about the palette is the combination of both matte and shimmer shades. Although not exactly like Stila’s full size formulas these do come a close second in texture and formula. The shimmers have a soft, buttery feel with a velvet-like finish that apply and blend easily. The mattes I was a little worried would be dry but these are silky and soft with a sheerer yet pretty finish.

Lionfish

The inside of the palette features a mirror and a how to get the look guide as well as each shadow being labeled where you should put it (ie: lid, base, liner) so it’s pretty foolproof to apply, shade, and contrast the colors, blending them out to a picture perfect finish.

The Convertible Color can be used on both lips and cheeks. I realize cream and powder products in a single palette is messy however, they have a clear film inside you can use to cover the cream blusher as you work with the powders. The full size Smudge Stick is a generous extra in this set! I’ve always been a fond fan of Stila’s Smudge Stick and Lionfish is one my favorite shades. This is a creamy eyeliner that smudges easily and has a fairly long wear on my drier eyes.

Overall, the Stila On the Red Carpet Palette in And the Winner Is includes some very pretty nude shades that will work well into Spring and Summer!

    This palette is so… Boring.

    When I think red carpet, I think of something more glamorous.

    I don’t know about those two suggestions for ‘liners’…

    I actually adore this palette! Especially for the blush. Would you say the blush is quite generously sized or a little skimpy?

      hey alison it’s 0.08oz in size, smallish but for a cream blush that’s pretty good as I’ll never use all of a cream blush.

    Ugh, I can’t believe it’s only on QVC; I don’t normally wear any dark colors on my eyes so this looks perfect! But I’d really like to see it in person before purchasing… sigh
