Stila Travel Palette Empowered in Pink Plus Details On Stila Fabulous in Fiji Palette

Ah here’s a little something to get pretty excited about. As we wait for the final Stila Travel Palette to release we can get a little sweet filler until it arrives.

Let’s take a look at the Stila Travel Palette Empowered in Pink.

Stila Travel Palette Empowered in Pink is available at Ulta but sadly they do not list the contents however the good news is they do list the Stila The Fabulous in Fiji Palette, thank the makeup gods for small favors.

Stila Fabulous in Fiji Includes Eyeshadows in:

  • R&R (light blue)
  • Palm (green)
  • Escape (blue)
  • Wave (navy blue)
  • Plus Stila Convertible Color in Plumeria

Now if Ulta would just whisper in our ears about what Empowered in Pink has. Looks like a really nice palette. Obviously it’s in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month as well.

As soon as I hear further information I’ll post.

Whatcha think?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I must have this. I only have the USA travel palette so far (not too keen on Paris or Tokyo as I’m too pale to pull either off). I’ve been waiting for another palette to come out as I really want Moscow but hate to pay $7 for shipping (ugh). Anyway, thoughts…it looks like the eyeshadows may be cream formulas? Maybe it’s just the picture. Either way, still want it!

    • the Muse

      I believe powder Courtney ;-D and this looks ideal for a softer look on farier skin ;D

  • Danielle F.

    Ugh! Now I want this one too. Good thing ULTA has free shipping on $25 or more this week. Made a good excuse to snap up UDs Urban Glow in Sin. I cannot wait to get this one in the mail–what a nice surprise for BCA.
    I have the first four of these and I have to say I was disappointed with the Moscow palette. The convertible color in this one is the only one that didn’t have a great color payoff. While the eyeshadows are pretty, the convertible color really let me down. This one also had a bit of shimmer to it that the first three palettes did not have. Still worth having if you collect though!

    • the Muse

      Hey Danielle I didn’t get my moscow yet, waiting! But sad to hear it wasn’t so fab, damn! Def ant the BCA one ;-D It looks sweet. Any code for the free shipping?

      • Danielle F.

        The eyeshadows are still good IMO, I would describe all of them as shimmery and the colors look like a peachy-pink, a warm copper with copper shimmer (very pretty) a light shimmery blue with silver shimmer and a little bit of gray to it (love this) and a matte brown with copper shimmers in it (hardest to blend, kind of chalky). I think it’s my skin tone–I have medium skin so it barely shows up on me–good as a highlight though. I think fair ladies will enjoy the convertible color of this palette as it’s more toned down then the rest. Very natural pinky nude color with shimmer and sheen.

        Ulta code: 59045 for free shipping over $25

        Cannot wait to try out this next one, admitting to being addicted to these travel palettes!!!!

        • the Muse

          it sounds rather pretty Danielle ;-D I wish mine would arrive already waiting over a week WTH 🙁 thanks for the free shipping code now I can order this one without the guilt ;-D at this price how can we not be?!

  • Comrade_Garlic

    Grrr…I refuse to buy from Ulta. Stila needs to sell this on their site.

    • the Muse

      comrade hopeful they’ll do it on the site would save $ on shipping as I really don’t want to spend $25 for the FS ;-D

    • Promise

      Why do you refuse to buy from Ulta? You know, I have had the Ulta Rewards since May, and I still haven’t received my rewards certificate!!! WTH?

      • Comrade_Garlic

        Absolutely no customer service. I get tired of having to hunt somebody down to ring me out. Nobody can answer a simple question. I haven’t bothered ordering online, just rather not give them my business.

      • Christina

        They don’t give out rewards certificates, you can just ask to spend them in stores, remember points expire yearly. Like, you can just keep saving them because its better to do it that way, like at 500 points, you only get $4, at 1000 points you get $9 and at 2000 you can get $20 off.

  • Danielle F.

    For those of you gals who want the palette but don’t want to spend $25 to get free shipping, there is another coupon for $5 off your $10 order. I believe Ulta charges $5 for shipping so with the $5 off it would be like getting the palette with free shipping.

    • the Muse

      Danielle I tried that but for some reason the coupon didn’t take grrr!

      • Danielle F.

        It didn’t work when I just tried either! Dang! Not sure why it’s not working…sorry for getting everyone’s hopes up!

        • the Muse

          prob for non-premium brands Danielle grr 😛 ;-D guess I gotta go with the 25 bucks and free shipping hehe!

  • Courtney

    Any idea if this is going to come to Sephora or is it an ULTA only kinda thing?

  • peri

    i saw this in the ulta ad. i thought it was kind of a curious thing that its called empowered in pink…but none of the shades are pink. maybe thats just me lol. i like the colors though.

  • breyerchic04

    No interest in empowered in pink. I have Paris so that’s fine.

    Depending on what the convertible color looks like in Fiji, i might be interested in it.

  • Laci

    UGH!! I went to my Ulta today to get this and they were out. *sigh* I guess I’ll have to order online. I’m sure I can find stuff to get me to the free shipping. 😉

    I cannot WAIT for Fiji.

      • Laci

        I bought the Philosophy Shower for a Cure to get me to free shipping. Yes, I would rather buy extra stuff than pay for shipping. LOL

  • Promise

    Like I said before, I wish the Tokyo palette or something had more greens in it because it seems there is blue in almost every palette!
    Anyway – I picked this up at Ulta yesterday, mainly because I’m collecting the set, not because I like the eyeshadow formula. I also like the packaging, too. I would be completely in love with these if the eyeshadows had the “Stila feel” to them, that creamy texture we all love. And honestly, I would pay $20 a piece if they had the Stila eyeshadow feel and were not made in China!!! That’s the biggest thing I hate about these palettes. Every other Stila product I have is made in USA, and maybe the packaging is made in China, but in these palettes, the makeup, everything is maid in China, and I think that’s why the eyeshadow seems really hard and difficult to blend unlike other Stila shadows. Does anyone else agree?

    • the Muse

      looks like Fiji will be the greens/blues Promise 🙂

      Sadly they are indeed made in China, not sure why Stila went that route with this, imagine cheaper to produce. But quite saddened it’s not made in the US.

    • Shannon

      USA is the only one i thought was a bit sheer, the rest were all very pigmented and soft I find?

  • Andrea

    The pink palette is pretty, and Fiji sounds interesting. I hope Ulta will start selling Moscow online soon so I can get that and the pink one in one order… I don’t have a store near me and my Sephora doesn’t have any of the travel palettes in stock!

    P.S. For anyone who’s interested, with any $25 Stila purchase at Ulta you get a free Black Diamond mascara.

  • HautePJ

    Ahh the Stila Travel Palette Empowered in Pink colors look really pretty. I wish these were the colors for the USA Palette instead because that was disappointing. I really hope EiP is available on the Stila site or Sephora because ordering from Ulta is a pain. Once I ordered an NYX stick and they sent me the wrong color.

    • the Muse

      I agree PJ. US was a vast disappointment as was Tokyo imho! 😛 sadly someone just said, Andrea, it’s exclusive to Ulta as stated by Stila’s FB. 🙁

      • HautePJ

        Ahh that’s a shame it’s exclusive. I used to hate convertible colors but the Paris and Tokyo palettes changed my mind and I find I use the CCs as a base on lips. Maybe because they are LE it’s a mental thing too that makes me want to collect!

        • the Muse

          pj I’ve always loved CC in the Summer good light wearin’ that has incredible long wear ;-D it’s the LE thing for sure ;-D!

    Hi Muse,
    I was on the Stila Facebook page and got this info on the EiP palette

    shade names: life (white-champagne shimmer), hope (pink-champagne shimmer), giving (light purple-brown shimmer) and inspiring (deep violet shimmer)
    convertible color: pink ribbon

    I’m going to Ulta today to see if they have it.

  • Ida

    Just letting you all know, I bought the Fabulous in Fiji palette at my local Beauty Brands store! The convertible color is a very warm rosy brown with shimmer, more on the brown side. That is what made me think, the convertible color is warm but the eyeshadows are cool toned?

    • the Muse

      awesome Ida. How’d you get it so fast? It’s not even out online anywhere yet!

  • Bridgette

    This palette isn’t on Ulta’s site anymore and my local Ulta hasn’t gotten any in two shipments. I am really hoping there is more stock coming. I want this palette and I am heading to my nearest Beauty Brands to see if Fiji is out yet. PS I just got a PT job at Sephora, hopefully I’ll get some nice insider info.

    • the Muse

      I know damn bridgette it sold out fast 🙁 so sad. I hope they restock or at least other places get it.

      Oooo YAY! give us all the gossip!
