Be Stila My Heart

It's the Limited Edition Color Wheel Palette!

How's that for a bargain?

Ah, to have new makeup.  It is a type of sensation that I'm not even sure I could describe in words.  I feel giddy, almost euphoric.  All the more so when we're talking about having new limited edition makeup (yes, allow me to enjoy this rare bragging rights moment).

Obviously, when we are talking about the color wheel, then we are talking about virtually every type of color combination.  There is use of warm colors, cool colors, and even complementary warm and cool colors.  The difference, I'd say, between this palette and the 88 palettes that you often see now (which I also use actually), is that it is broken down into different quads for very wearable shades that make for classic application/looks.  In fact, what comes in the box is a 16 page look book that promotes easy and practical use of shades.

Loving the smokey gold and olive looks

So the extremely OC part of me carried on what could have been a quick opening and unwrapping of this box to a 30 minute period of lifting, peeling, documenting, ooh-ing and ahh-ing.  Take a look at some of the minutes of my adoration.

Now just in case it isn't clear in the photos, I'd like to specify that these are powder eyeshadows and there are shimmers and mattes in all the right places.  Also, the palette is probably a lot larger than it appears so think 3/4 of a standard laptop size with the largest color pots being the size of tablespoons.

Okay, so if you would like to get your own, now is the time to do so.  Not only are stocks going fast, but you can also find some great deals with respect to how much you can get it for compared to how much it is worth.  Depending on where you are, you can go to Sephora or simply log on to  Lets keep our fingers crossed that for fellow Manila-based people, Rustans' Stila section will get hold of these.

So that's that ladies. I think I have gushed enough. Be Stila my heart.
