Hi guys! I'm here today with a review on the Stila Happily Ever After Palette! Stila is one of my favorite makeup brands, and I was very excited to get this little palette. I got this online from the stila cosmetics website, I don't think I ever saw it sold in stores. It retails for $75.00 full price, but it is onsale for $50.00 right now. I got this on cybermonday for a steal of about $35! *Squeal* I had not seen any reviews or swatches for this palette, so I thought this would be my first blog post!
This palette comes with 6 eyeshadows, 2 lip glosses, blush, bronzer, and smudge stick. Three of the eyeshadows are matte and three are a shimmer/satin finish. Both the blush and bronzer are matte. I think the layout of this palette is awesome! It is so compact, about the size of your hand. Open the top flap and you have a mirrior, your eyeshadows, and lip products. Under the eyeshadows the bottom slides out holding your blush and bronzer.

I love this palette. I love the eyeshadows, they are nicely pigmented, silky, and blendable. The only eyeshadow that I don't think is as good as the others is bliss. Bliss takes more work to get the product onto my brush, and it is not as pigminted as the others. The blush and bronzer are blendable, smooth, and they work great for me. One thing that I noticed is that the bronzer is very light, so for me it works great because I have very pale skin, but for dark skin I don't know if it would show up. The eyeliner is a nice dark brown, and it stays put all day. The glosses are O.K. but I hate that they are right next to the powders, so they might get goopy. Overall I love this palette. The quality is amazing. It cuts down the number of individual products making getting ready so fast and easy. I love that it has almost all of your essential makeup products in one little palette, perfect for travel or keeping in your purse! Let me know if you have any questions!
