Stila light up the world color trend eyeshadow palette photos, swatches and EOTD

I popped into winners recently, and found myself face to face with this gorgeous Stila palette. Even after doing some online searches I can't find much information about when this palette was released. I'm wondering if it's some sort of exclusive item.
It seems to make sense that it was released the same time as Stila's light up the world collection for spring 2011, but I can't say for sure.

These colors are absolutely beautiful! With 10 colors ranging from bronze, tan, purple and browns there are many looks to create with this.

As with most Stila shadows, the quality is great. The colors are well pigmented and blend like a dream. There are no matte shades, each shadow is luminous and has shimmer and/or small sparkles.

Swatched from left to right:

sugar, light, peaceful, bronze, dawn, precious, demure, delicate, sangria and truffle
demure and sangria are my favorites, they are extremely pigmented and totally gorgeous
I did two looks with this palette, one using the tan and bronze colors, and one using the purples.

I'm really loving this palette right now. It's got some really nice colors that I don't have already.
I know this palette is up on Ebay and ACW right now, so if you are looking for it you can try those places.
I think I'm falling for Stila, I seem to be using lots of the brand lately.

Do you like Stila cosmetics? Whats your favorite product?

I have never seen this palette before! I WANT IT!!! I have no idea what collection this is from....weird! Stila is a great makeup company, I love their travel girl palettes, eyeshadows in general, and their lip glazes!

How much was it at Winners? The only Stila stuff that I've ever seen at Winners is lipgloss, but now I have to keep an eye out for the palette. It's gorgeous!!

It's very pretty, it was only about $12 CAD , which is amazing since Stila is sooo expensive here! If I come across another I'm going to grab it since it seems hard to find.

I just bought this at Winners too! I'm a bit confused too about its origins, but it's my first Stila item (nowhere seems to sell them in my province), so I'm excited!

Thanks, Lexa! I found this at my Winners today, but the box was all beat up, and the clear glass part of the palette had glue on it - like someone peeled a sticker off, so I didn't buy it. Kinda regretting it a bit now, but hoping that I can hold out for one in better shape. It was $9.99. The search continues... :)

Lexa said...

I'm glad other people are finding this, it's such a nice palette for everyone!
@ Jennifer, you should get it! Stuff like this always sells quick from Winners.
