Stila and Nyx Goodies

I went to Ulta a couples days ago because they are having their ’21 Days of Beauty Steals’ and I wanted to see what they had on sale. On the day I went they had the Stila palette on sale for $20, regularly $39 and NYX was buy one get one half off so I decided to grab a few things.

I bought four lipliners (hey they were BOGO, so I thought why not?)
Swatched here (from left to right) are:

  • Pale Pink, Dolly Pink, Bloom, and Pinky

I also picked up four lipsticks. I wasn’t trying to coordinate the lipliners and lipsticks I just wanted to grab something that I didn’t have (although a couple of the colors do closely match). The shades are (from the left right):

  • Power, Narcissus, Haute Melon, Pure Nude

Finally, I bought the Stila palette. I thought it was a pretty good beauty steal. I really like the colors at first look but in swatching them I am a little disappointed in a few colors. From left to right the colors are as follows:

  • (TOP) Instinct, Impluse, Glance, Improvise and Catalyst
  • (BOTTOM) Desire, Wonder, Spontaneous, Whim and Captivate

The palette also came with the Smudge Stick Waterproof eyeliner pencil (swatched in the center) in Tetra.
