Stila collectible travel palette no.4 Review- make an impression in moscow

This is the fourth in a five-part series of the limited collection collectible palettes, the Make an Impression in Moscow palette features Stila's award-winning Eye Shadows in four trend-setting shades: Matruschka (beige), Chill (pale blue), Nadia (orange copper), and Mink (brown). The wintery palette also includes Convertible Color in Lily, a sheer, hydrating pink shade that's ideal for creating a naturally flushed, cold-weather glow.

"Certainly, travel is more than seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living. - mirian beard" - ohhh how cute!
Swatches accordingly
My thoughts:
It is definitely one of the products that comes in handy for traveling. Its tiny bit bigger than my palm with a lightweight cardboard packaging that contains a mirror, 4 eyeshadow colors and a very versatile rosy pink color for lips and cheeks. None of the eyeshadow colors are in my opinion dead color, of which I usually would not purchase any palette that contains any (yup, not even 1 out of 20 colors). They are all very pigmented and easy to blend. Not to mention they stay put all day. The only thing I notice is that the shadows are actually a lot darker then what you look from the Sephora website so just to be aware of that. Lily - the lip and cheek color is not drying and pretty pigmented and frosty. After a couple of hours I could still see colors on my lips and cheeks. It is not a crazy color but definitely adds shine and a healthy glow on the skin and lips. This is my first Stila product ever and I am quite impressed with its quality! They are not the best eyeshadow but definitely worth more than $10 (!?) and make a great travel companion.

P.S. Sorry I meant to do this review a lot earlier but got caught prepping things for my new york trip over the weekend. I had fun thought something pretty ridiculous happened but I am so glad I am back safe and sound. I have bought so much stuff lately so more products will be introduced to you lovely ladies soon I promise!
