As the holiday season grows closer, cosmetic companies start pouring out their ‘holiday collections’. Usually they’re quite blah, but sometimes you can get some amazing products that are great value for money. Stila’s dream in full palette is one such product.

This palette – apart from being beautiful – is a good bargain! It contains 29 of Stila’s best-selling eyeshadows, 7 blushes and a Stila Smudgestick in Stingray (jet black). Considering a Smudgestick alone retails for $48, the dream in full palette is great value at $75!!!

The little lookbook that came with it had 12 great looks for beginners and some more exciting looks as well. Each arm of the flower’s spiral contains co-ordinating colours, so coming up with an eye look in a pinch is super easy!

A list of all the colours:

The number chart is on the box and not on the actual palette, which is annoying! The colours are all highly pigmented and finely milled. There are a few matte shades, but the majority are shimmery. Of the cheek colours, there is a nice selection of shades – you might not be able to use every colour depending on your skin tone, but you should be able to use at least half.

Part of me wants to mount this palette on my wall and just look at it, but the make up junkie in me can’t wait to create some amazing looks with it! This palette would definitely get my pick as a great holiday gift for anyone who is interested in makeup or reading to start building up their makeup collection.

The dream in full palette is available from Mecca Cosmetica for AUD 75. It is also available on ASOS for AUD 41.10. So unless you’re desperate to have this, I’d suggest getting it online for almost half the price.
