Stila Haute in the Hamptons Palette

5 years ago

I purchased this palette last year, for just under $20. This palette (and other similar ones) were on Sephora not too long ago for $10. I don`t think they are available anymore, however.

This palette comes with four eyeshadows, a cheek colour, and a bronzing powder. Inside the palette is a face chart with instructions and a small mirror.

In the third photo, I swatched the eyeshadow shades. I applied them over a base of Urban Decay Primer Potion, and took the photo with flash. From top to bottom, they are:
<ul><strong><li>Blue Skies</strong> (blue shade): This shade is streaky, patchy, and disappointing overall.</li>
<li><strong>Route 27</strong> (brown shade): This shade is marginally less patchy than Blue Skies, but it`s still not very good.</li>
<li><strong>Linen</strong> (bronze shade): I don`t know why this shade is called Linen. With a name like that, I`d expect it to be a matte off-white colour. But anyways! This shade is fairly pigmented and easy to use. I like it, and it works for me!</li>
<li><strong>Sand</strong> (beige shade): This shade barely shows up in the photo - sorry about that! It`s actually *really* close to the colour of my skin, so I use this shade to blend out my eyeshadows. It works really well for that purpose!</ul>

On to the blusher and bronzer swatches (fourth photo)! I also applied these over a base of Urban Decay Primer Potion, and took the photo with flash. From top to bottom:
<ul><strong><li>Bronzing Powder in Montauk Highway</strong>:This is a deep bronzey-rose shade that looks to be more appropriate as a blush. It doesn`t look right on me as a bronzer or contouring shade; it has too much pink in it. It looks as though I`ve applied blush on the wrong part of my face, lol.</li>
<strong><li>Cheek Colour in Hydrangea</strong>: This is a pretty pink shade, but it`s not all that unique. It does the job, though!</li></ul>

I really only liked two of the eyeshadow shades, as well as the blush, but I`m not impressed with the rest of the palette. I don`t think I would spend $10 on another one of these palettes, as I wouldn`t be using half of the products in it.
