Stila 'Perfect Me, Perfect Hue' Palette Review & Swatches

I recently posted this beautiful new Stila palette on my Instagram (come follow me @kayleighjcouture if you don't already) and lots of you were loving it so I thought I'd do a review on my blog in full so you can see it in a bit more detail along with some swatches. I haven't actually tried too many Stila products before but it's a brand I always hear great things about so I was really excited to give this a try.

When I received this in the post, my first thought was 'wow, this is so pretty!' as the gold leopard print packaging is really lovely - I usually prefer more simple packaging but this is still really understated and classy looking, despite it being a bold print. I also love how compact the palette is - it isn't very big but that's great in my opinion as it makes it easier to travel with. There's four variations of the palette, each designed with a different skin tone in mind. The one I was sent is for Medium/Tan skin tones but there's also palettes for Fair/Light, Light/Medium and Tan/Deep available. If I was to pick one myself, I'd have probably gone for Light/Medium as that's how I'd describe my skin tone but the palette I have still suits me, so I don't think you have to stick to your skin tone - just go for the one you like the look of best I guess!

The palette contains five eyeshadows and two blushers, with a mixture of matte and shimmery finishes. I like that it  has a mixture as it means you can create lots of different looks for both day and night. The shades in the palette I have are all beautiful and very wearable. The back of the palette states how each shade should be used which is useful, especially if you're not the best at applying eyeshadow and need a bit of guidance. The shades are as follows;

Curious - a matte beige to be used all over the lid as a base, 
Captivating - a soft champagne shade with a slight shimmer to use as a highlight
Daring - a shimmery copper/rose gold to use all over the lid
Fiesty - a deep chocolate brown to use in the crease.

Finally, the two blush shades are 'Inspiring', a beautiful Coral shade with a slight shimmer and 'Mysterious', a pretty matte rosy Pink. I'm not usually a blush wearer but these shades are so beautiful and I've actually really enjoyed wearing them - especially Inspiring. 

I've been using the palette virtually every day since I received it in the post as I love every single shade and as I said earlier, the size makes it great for travelling so it's always in my handbag for one the go touch ups. The quality of the shadows is absolutely amazing - they're so pigmented and buttery, making them so easy to apply and blend. My favourite shade in the palette would have to be Daring as I'm obsessed with anything rose gold and it's also a great shade 

L-R - Curious, Captivating, Daring, Fiesty, Inspiring and Mysterious.

It's available to buy here from Cult Beauty and costs £28.00. Do you like the look of this palette? Are you a fan of Stila cosmetics?
