Stila Stunning in Sayulita Palette

Ok, not gonna lie, I had to Google where Sayulita was. Haha. It is in Mexico, in case you were also wondering.

Anywhozie! Hello Lovelies!

I picked up this little gem at Sephora for $14, and it is the first Stila Beach Girl Palette series. Over the course of the summer, Stila is releasing 5 of these beach-themed travel and budget friendly palettes. So far there are 3 out and 2 more to go!


The palette comes with four eyeshadows, one blush and one "bronzing powder". The four eyeshadows are super wearable and all neural. The top left color, "Starfish" is a nice light champagne, "Sandbar", which is located next to it, is a nice shimmery chocolate brown. It has a gold sheen/shimmer and almost has a touch of a blue shimmer in it. "Getaway" the bottom left color is a pretty taupe and "Palm Trees" is a nice rich-medium green. All the shadows are on the shimmery side, but I haven't had horrible fallout from them.


L to R: "Banderas Bay" (highlighter/bronzing powder), "Play" (blush), "Starflish, "Sandbar", "Getaway" and "Palm Trees"

The blush is pretty, subtle, matte peach called "Playa", but their "bronzing powder"? What the fetch? Who is that gonna bronze? I thought "Banderas Bay" was a highlighter. And as a highlighter, its too shimmery, even more so with the shimmery shadows, it makes it look like fallout. But! Its pretty as an eyeshadow!

This palette is a great deal, I don't feel like they're sacrificing anything as far as quality goes. But claiming its a $62 value?! But I would completely recommend it! It is perfect for someone who travels or anyone who likes a good deal!


I think I'm going to pick up the Hamptons palette next!

Anyone try this? Let me know!
