When I saw this palette, I was on a hunt for it because it was sold out at Ulta. I am becoming a Stila fan and the colors and purpose of this palette completely grabbed my attention! I had to order in online and I am thrilled that I did because it is beautiful!
Each year, Stila dedicates some of their products to Breast Cancer Awareness (check out my Stila Positively Pink Palette Review) and donates a portion of the proceeds to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Like the Positively Palette, I love the packaging. I don't this it is very sturdy packaging, but the overall design is gorgeous! I just love the illustration in the front, as it makes it look very pretty and feminine.
This palette contains 5 gorgeous pink/plum eyeshadows and one duo lip/cheek tint. Each shade is named after positive thought that relates to hope, strength and courage:
- Spirit: light shimmery white pink (center)
- Exquisite: slightly shimmery light pink (top left)
- Aspire: shimmery medium pink (right)
- Resolve: matte mauve (left)
- Bold: dark matte plummy mauve (bottom right)
- Hope: bright pink for lips and cheeks (bottom)
(From the left: Exquisite, Aspire, Resolve and Bold [silly me...I forgot to swatch Spirit])
Hope duo lip & cheek cream
The texture of these shadows are quite nice. Granted, they are not the best and most pigmented I have ever tried, BUT they are still absolutely gorgeous! I wore these shades on my eyes for the Breast Cancer Awareness walk that I did and it had pretty decent staying power. It really lasted all day after walking, dancing and showing support.
Overall, I do love this palette. I probably wouldn't wear all of the shadows at once, because its a bit too pink for me, but mixing it up with some other shadows, especially Bold, for the Fall is going to be absolutely gorgeous!!!
