Stila Trendsetting in Tokyo Travel Palette Review/FOTD

Monday, September 13, 2010

I was never a big fan of Stila and only own couple of their shadows before. Even tho I really like the concept of lip and cheeks convertible colors, I've never found a color I really love. I saw couple peoples reviews about these travel palettes and I was totally attracted by the convertible color(Sakura) in this pallet and decided to track it down. It's such a neutral baby pink that is not too cool or warm, I can see it works so well on my cheeks and lips.

Since I have no access to Ulta and I did not want to pay expensive shipping for this pallet on, I pick this up at Urban Outfitter for $10, such a great buy for a Stila palette. It contains 4 eyeshadows and 1 convertible color.

I'd used it for a few times ever since I got it. What do I think? We all know that Stila's shadows are famous for their soft, buttery texture and vibrant color, but for these shadows, they are really not that great. They're like drugstore eyeshadows I have to say... they're not as pigmented as their regular line, and feel kinda chalky. My favorite color will be Sake, the light beige one, it has gold sheen and actually looks pretty when I pile it on.

The convertible color Sakura..... was a totally different story. I'm in LOVE with this color. It's such a lovely color which doesn't turn red on my cheek(most baby pink blushes do). The texture is so creamy and easy to blend, and I really really like it on my lips (more than cheeks)!

I hope that Stila will consider making this convertible color a permanent item, I will totally buy it over and over again even it is $25 (regular price). But $10 for this palette? it is a steal IMO just for the convertible color alone. I can be careless about the shadows, actually I might just cut it in half so the powders not gonna get into the blush cream. It always gets messy when they do the palette like this, not a very good idea...

Sakura. How lovely... love the name too :)

Here is me with the whole palette on my face. Kawai on the lid, Sake under brown bones and inner corner, the black color (no name) on my outer corner and Shibuya on lower lash line. Sakura convertible color on my cheeks and lips.

with flash...

I really like it on my lips :)

The Stila travel pallets are LE so grab them while you can ;)

Ahh I'm so glad you did this review! I just purchased this product online from today (I did their Happy Hour Sale for the 1st 500 people and got the 2 free Illuminating Finishing powder in Bronze & Rose Gold!!) I then was SO unsure of my purchase (b/c I don't normally wear the colors found in the Tokyo palette) that I e-mailed them and to see if I could change my order?? It was a no go :( The colors on their site didn't look nearly as good as the ones on your blog! After I found this, I decided to go ahead with my order after all. ha ha.

I actually didn't realize all the different uses for this product until I came across your blog! Can't wait to get my order now!! :) Thank you!!
