  • Unique and fun
  • Huge palette in a fun circular shape
  • Lots of colors to chose from. Blushes and shadows lined the palette
  • Makes a great gift for a Stila fan or anyone who loves fun makeup
  • Shadows are pigmented. I used Urban Decay Eden as a primer
  • Variety of mattes and shimmers

Cons :

  • To big to travel with
  • Its more of a fun item than a make up artist item
  • Some of the smaller shadow “wells” are hard to get to with a reg sized brush. I think those are more for looks than for use
  • Too pretty to even use
  • Blushes are on the softer side. I love my blush so this is a bummer for me

Pigmentation:  Varies among the shadows. The blushes are on the lighter side. There are a few that are more pigmented than others. If you like soft every day colors then you will be happy with the blushes.

Overall: I think this makes a great gift for any one who is looking to get an all in one fun everyday palette. Its fun and I bet anyone who loves makeup will appreciate it. It isn’t ideal for quick uses as you have to becareful when you open the lid.. just imagine one HUGE-MONGO compact. Its held on a hinge so becareful not to break it. It won’t break unless you are rough with it so handle with care. The shadows are appear to be pigmented and smooth. I just had a hard time with the small shadows so those were hard to get any color. I wish they were bigger because all of the colors look so nice for everyday. I like it and its definitely a fun palette to pull out and show your friends. Its a very large palette and any little girl’s dream makeup palette.
