I love love love this palette. Peach tones are really flattering on my pale skin/ blue eyes / brown hair, and these colours are perfectly matched. It's also super convenient, I can get away with keeping this, a concealer and mascara in my handbag for sleepovers or weekends away. The brush works well to use the brown shade as a subtle eyeliner. So far as I know this isn't available in stores anymore, so I'm hoarding the palettes I can find on ebay. So sad I'm not living in a place where these are going for $5 in pharmacies. The eyeshadows are quite shimmery and mightn't suit everyone for day wear, but the colours themselves are subtle enough that unless you're in a strict corporate environment I think you'd probably be fine. The blush is amazing, like NARS orgasm but better. I really love the silky texture of it, and wish Stila did more blushes like this. I would buy the blush in a pan by itself. I'm not a huge fan of the packaging, I think it's kind of ugly, but that's no big deal and it's practical enough.

This is a slightly above average lipstick. I found it a little drying but that could be fixed with a balm underneath, I think. The colour isn't for everyone, but it's very on-trend right now - it's a nice way of interpreting the fashion for corals in lips that is less orange and fashion-shooty than other coral lipsticks. I find it very flattering with my pale skin, blue eyes and brown hair. It would be better if it were a little sheerer, so it was easier to build the colour rather than being so full-on with one coat, but I'm guessing that means it will go a long way. It works quite well as a stain with a gloss over, for a more subtle colour.
