Hi Makeup Geeks! As you all know, every year around the holidays I go on my search for the best makeup palettes. I review each of them individually, then at the end I pick my favorite one of the year. What could make the holidays even better but all the palettes and goodies that get released each year? It makes shopping so much more fun! 🙂
In this review we are going to be looking at the Stila “Artist Essential Palette”.
The packaging on this mimics a wooden artist box that carries all their essential paints and brushes. It’s has a sturdy cardboard construction and a silver latch that closes the box. The box opens to reveal 4 small eye palettes with four shades in each one with 0.14 for each shade. It also contains, 0.07 Deluxe Convertible Color Lip & Cheek Cream, 0.03 oz Deluxe Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick, 0.01 oz Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner, #9 brush and a how to card. This is a lot of product for the price of the palette. There is a removable black plastic tray that hold the makeup so you can store more in the box if you like. There isn’t a mirror on it which I dislike, but to mimic the artist box you would necessarily have one. I do find it somewhat cumbersome but the idea behind this is really good. The packaging for the eyeshadows is not good at all. The plastic holders is in no way sturdy and would break or crack easily.
