Stila has successfully redeemed themselves with the new E! Live from the Red Carpet Palettes. If you get felt like some of their recent ten buck offerings haven’t really reflected well on the brand, no worries, these new palettes bring the game back to a fair playing level. I recently tried out the Glamour Goddess Palette and fell in love!
This week I decided to dig out the new Stila Stunning Starlet Palette out for a try out to see if it would be love too!
I want a One Night in Bangkok Palette. How awesome would that be?
Oh well I’ll settle for NYX One Night in Morocco instead I guess……with a Chanel-like vibe this palette should appeal to the “grown ups” among us. Lord knows I’m not one of them but if you like more sophisticated shades of matte eyeshadow you might want to check this one out. Personally I have a certain aversion to matte shades of shadow so taking this palette on I expected and braced for the worst.
I’ve been busy fiddling around with the Stila E! Live from the Red Carpet Palettes that I got for virtually free thanks to their awesome reward programs! Yay!
As you know from my prior post Glamour Goddess was the one that was really appealing to me even though I hauled all three. It’s the warmest of the three and I’m just a great lover of golds so this was fitting for me.
Let’s check it and find out if the quality actually lives up to Stila quality or if these veer towards the Travel Palette route.
This year’s variation of Tarte’s mega palette, The Jewelry Box, features a whopping 32 Full Size Eyeshadows plus other wonderful goodies. I kinda dub Tarte the founding sister of HUGE Holiday Palettes. While every other brand was doing gift sets or festive themed makeup, Tarte was busy releasing super sized palettes to sink our teeth in. Needless to say the rest of the makeup world soon caught the bug and started releasing their own versions of these monsters palettes but we should all bow our heads in respect that Tarte was the first brand to start this great Holiday tradition.
I believe their Holiday Palette is now in its fourth or fifth generation, I know I own at least three of these bad boys and I can recall a year or two I didn’t indulge. Go right ahead and correct me if I’m wrong. I haven’t really gotten tired of collecting them since they are 1. such a great value and 2. Tarte goes for the shock value every year and just when you think you’ve seen it all, they go and do something extra special which is what The Jewerly Box Palette felt like to me.
It was the same idea and design but it was a new as well with alot more packaged into one very tiny box! Who doesn’t like a palette that features everything and the kitchen sink and allows it to fit into a chunky little box about the size of a music CD? That’s awesomeness people.
