I received my latest Sephora order in the mail a couple days ago, so I have a few new products to review and let you all know about. Today will be devoted to the Stila “On The Go” Set. It’s exclusive to Sephora and a great deal for $30. In it are an eye shadow quad, a convertible color compact and a lip glaze. The reason I bought it was for the shadow palette, I needed a few new shadows and thought the colors looked neutral and easily combined on the website. I have used it the past few mornings and love it! The shadows are pretty loose so beware of sprinkles on your cheek bones but I really like the beige and taupe shimmers. The beige is a good all-over shade and the taupe is perfect for the eye crease. I also like the convertible color, it’s a peachy rose that is almost like a blushed bronze shade. So it’s nice for days when you don’t want your cheeks to be too pink. However, I didn’t really like it on my lips, it was a little too thick for my taste and too peach when placed there. Also included is the lip glaze in Honeydew. It is a very shimmery light peach so I used it layered over a darker lipstick, otherwise it was too light for my lips. My natural lip color is fairly deep so if the color is too light it looks weird on me! The thing I didn’t really like is the taste of the lip glaze. I’m not sure if it was supposed to taste like honeydew melon, but it was pretty funky. It’s the first lip glaze by Stila that I’ve tried, so I will definitely try another shade because the applicator is really unique. It is a brush tip that you twist the color up into, unlike any other gloss I’ve tried before. Overall, this set is a great value and has some useful products! Especially the eye shadow quad, I mean, if one Stila shadow costs $14 then 4 for $30 is a great bargain! I’ll review more of my new purchases in the weeks to come!
