Stila "Under the Mistletoe" Palette: My Holiday Bargain

3 years ago

I don't know where I've been these last few years, but this December was the first time I found out about the Stila Cosmetics Warehouse Sale. I'm not sure whether it's once or twice a year that they try to sell their old stock at rockbottom prices. I bought 3 products: a travel palette, a mini kit made up of an eye shadow duo and mascara, and an eyeliner, all for $12 plus a nominal cost for shipping. I'm not sure whether I received these before or after Christmas, so they were for moi, not for gifts. But they would have made great little gifts or stocking stuffers. Maybe next year!

At any rate, Stila has a variety of little Limited Edition palettes, usually with a theme such as a well-known city like New York, San Francisco, Sydney, or Rio or other themes like holidays, portraits etc. Each palette is like a little book with a heavy cardboard cover that illustrates the theme and travel size product inside.

The Under the Mistletoe palette that I bought is a snow-flake with 6 small eye shadows in neutral shades like off-white, pink, a couple of different mauve shades, light and darker brown. Some are matte and some are shimmers. It also comes with a brick-colored dual purpose cheek/lip cream. 

My $4 purchase has become my go-to travel palette, and I often find myself reaching for it at home as well.

Photos and details on my blog. It's worth it to check out Stila's LE travel palettes that I think are more available online than in stores, (since I didn't see any at Ulta yesterday, but I could be wrong about that). And keep your eyes peeled for the next Stila Warehouse Sale. It's a steal!
