Stila - Dream in Full Colour

It's November so I can officially say that Christmas is on its way and while it's good to give, it's better to receive. I killed two birds with one purchase and self gifted Stila's Christmas set Dream in Full Colour.  As you know I am a Stila freak so this set was a bit of a no brainer (it's not available in Boots so I had to buy it online). 

The set includes:
27 eye colours
7 cheek colours
full size smudge stick waterproof eyeliner in Stingray (which alone costs £13.00)
a look book

The palette is inspired by a dream catcher and a colour wheel and it is pretty damn fabulous.

The colours are listed on the back and in the centre there is Stila's famous shade/go with everything shade (and included in every set), Kitten.

The colours around the outside are the cheek colours, the pans are just big enough to fit a brush (you may have problems if you have a massive brush).  The eye colours are pigmented, soft and blend able.  The colours are softer in the In the Light Palette (review here) but this palette is pretty fabulous.  Some of the central shades are quite small but lets face it - most of us makeup addicts are not likely to run out of eyeshadow anytime soon.
The look book shows you how to use the colours in the palette to create different looks, you can of course just use the colours where you like or dip your face in the palette like I did.
I just dipped my face in the palette and VOILA - like magic it turns you into a fancy face (Fancy Face is trade mark of Its Cherry Sue check her out here )
In all my excitement I forgot to swatch the liner (it's black) - sorry about that.

Dream in Full Colour makes a brilliant present and at £25.00 it's a bargain.  I bought mine from ASOS (I got the delivery in a couple of days) (here). If I had of had a bit of patience I could have waited for a discount code.... but what can I say I am a bit of a brat.
