Stila Glitz & Glam Palette & Lip Glaze (in Raisin) Set -- pics, swatches, review

Hello, Beautiful!

I purchased the Stila Glitz and Glam Palette & Lip Glaze set from Sephora, as part of their Black Friday deals. It was just $10!

Check out my pics, swatches, stats and review...

Stila Glitz and Glam Palette & Lip Glaze Set
Includes: Glitz and Glam palette, which has four eyeshadows: Glitz, Glow, Glitter, Glam -- one blush: Amore -- one highlighter: Illuminate, plus it also came with one Lip Glaze in Raisin.






















Basic stats for Stila Glitz and Glam Palette & Lip Glaze Set:
Formula: pressed powder eyeshadows, blush, highlighter -- lip glaze
Coverage: okay pigmentation on shadows, blush and highlighter; lip glaze provides beautiful sheer to light/medium opaque color
Wear: average
Shade Info: Includes four eyeshadows in shades Glitz, Glow, Glitter, and Glam, one blush in Amore, one highlighter in Illuminate, as well as one Lip Glaze in Raisin.
Cost/Availability: $10 -- which was a Black Friday special deal on Sephora's website. It's no longer available.
Packaging: rectangular palette that opens to reveal the colors on one side, a mirror on the other with instructions for creating a look using the palette; the lip glaze is a brush-end, pen-style, twist-up gloss
My Rating: 4 out of 5 Kisses


Formula:
This set includes the Glitz and Glam palette, which has pressed-powder eyeshadows, blush and highlighter. Stila makes some wonderful eyeshadows, but the shadows in the palette were not all that wonderful compared to their normal standards. The Lip Glaze is wonderful; non-sticky, fully of shine and beautiful wearable color.


Coverage:
I think the pigmentation from this palette is just okay; I have another Stila palette (the Backstage Eye Shadow Palette) and the pigmentation is amazing compared to this palette. Regardless, they are buildable and with a shadow primer they will work perfectly. The blush and highlighter are basically in the same boat as the shadows; just not all that wonderful but still usable. The Lip Glaze offers sheer to light/medium opaque color. I love the Stila Lip Glazes because they are more on the sheer side which means just about every color works on everyone.


Wear:
Average wear; nothing super long wearing.


Shade Info:
Includes four eyeshadows in shades Glitz, Glow, Glitter, and Glam, one blush in Amore, one highlighter in Illuminate, as well as one Lip Glaze in Raisin.


Cost/Availability:
$10 -- which was a Black Friday special deal on Sephora's website. It's no longer available.


Packaging:
The palette is rectangular that opens to reveal the colors on one side, a mirror on the other with instructions for creating a look using the palette. The lip glaze is a brush-end, pen-style, twist-up gloss.


Stila Glitz and Glam Palette & Lip Glaze Set Review:
For $10 I think this is a great deal! While I wasn't thrilled with the pigmentation, and really would have loved the colors to be better, I still like this palette. I can't say anything bad about Stila's Lip Glaze because I love them! The shade Raisin is actually really beautiful; one of my favorite shades to wear in the winter because it's on the darker side but still light enough that it doesn't look too dark on me.

Overall, yes, I would recommend this set for the $10 price tag. If Sephora ever runs this deal again don't hesitate to add it to your shopping cart.

  5. @ Micki-Lacquer Nirvana: I don't think I've seen this combo any other day but Black Friday. You might get lucky and find it at your store, or sometimes I find them at Ulta just randomly. It was a great deal! I picked up an extra for a giveaway I'm going to launch soon, so if anything you'll have the chance to win it from my blog :)
