Stila Color Me Pretty


Those that know me well would agree with the statement that I've got a slight weakness (or a major obsession) with palettes, kits and sets. It's like the world gave me a valid reason to buy something and save money at the same time. Let's not get too deep into that last statement, but you beauty junkies know what I'm talking about. When Kate mentioned the Stila Color Me Pretty palette in her Christmas Gift Ideas, I gasped and headed onto Beauty Bay within 30 seconds and 2 minutes later, I received my order confirmation email. Done and dusted.

Stila Color Me Pretty is a palette that consists of 5 Convertible Color Dual Lip & Cheek Creams, including one limited edition shade. I've always been daunted by the Stila Convertible Colors and this palette was just the push I needed to try the product, and I'm so happy I did.

It comes in a sturdy metal tin, which is great for storing the product in general and perfect when travelling. The only thing I would add to the packaging myself would be a mirror in the case, but that's just a minor detail. When you've finished the product (which I doubt that'll be soon), you can take out the black, plastic holder and use it as a pencil case too - I love me some recycling.


(f.l.t.r) The palette consists of Kitten (a bronze/champagne-y shimmer), Peony (a dusty pink), Gerbera (a beautiful peachy coral), Rose (a deep rose hue) and Petuna (a bright-ish pink). All shades are super pigmented and moisturising at the same time - Rose and Petunia have been my absolute faves. The product is very easy to blend into the skin (or just to blend onto the lips) and the finish is a gorgeous radiant look - not too wet, shiny or sticky. I tried swatching the products, but somehow all colours ended up looking the same. So much for my photography skills a.k.a) I need a new camera. If you would like to see each the blushes swatched, you can head onto Karla Sugar, which is my go to place for product swatches.

To apply the product I like to use my fingers, the Real Techniques Buffing Brush or the EcoTools Complexion Blending Brush from their Flawless Face kit. Cheeky confession: it's the first cheek/blush palette where I actually like all shades and as it's so easy to blend into the skin, I'm sure I'll be using this loads.


What are your thoughts on the Stila Color Me Pretty palette?

  3. I am soooo like you in this sense! I adore palettes/value kits because they are such a great way to try (several) new products without breaking the bank! I place an order for another Stila lip/cheek palette and I'm curious to test their formula!

  6. They are on the creamy side, hence it's so easy to blend in. Though unlike other creamy cream blushes, they're not slipping from your face after a few hours.

  14. Pretty and wearable are definitely terms I'd associate with this palette myself. The tin is definitely handy when storing it and especially when travelling or sleepovers!
