Summer Lovin' with Stila - LE Beach Palettes

I never paid much attention to Stila before it's re-launch. I bought a couple of lipglazes a few years ago, adore their bronzer in shade no 3 (which has been dicontinued) but that was a far as I delved. Since the re-launch, having had the opportunity to try a few products, I've started to sit up and take notice.

These arrived unexpectedly for me to review, on Saturday afternoon (yeah, my postman appears to choose his own shift hours!) and injected some much needed sunshine into what had been a grey, bleak day so far.

The limited edition Beach Palettes by Stila, each adorn the iconic signature Stila girls and include a mirror, four eye shadoes and two blushes.

They also come with an easy to follow, step by step how-to guide on the inside sleeve. Great to pop into your handbag, for a weekend away or tobne given as gifts. These multi functionlal palettes are pretty handy.


Lovely eye shadow shades, but the blushes are a no-no for deep skin tones as they look ashy on . The eye shadow quarter reminds me of the MAC Spiced Chocolate quad, which I've swatched here.

These e/s are so pigmented, they'll be great for an intense smoky purple eye.  Again I'm not feeling the cheek colours which consist of a vibrant pink, and a bronzing powder which were not the most flattering against my skin tone.


I really like this palette, it vaguely reminds me of the Estee Lauder Sun Goddess Sea & Sand palette, I used to own, which can be pictured here because of its colour scheme. All the eye colours and the blush and bronzer (although I'd just use both as blushes) are flattering and really warm up my skintone as can be seen in the swatches below.

Like what you see? Well best of all, they only cost a tenner each! Yep, £10.00.

Okay this is a no brainer, but with Christnmas coming up, hello stocking fillers!
