It's been years since I purchased a Stila palette. When I saw this online I immediately purchased it. Something about it was calling to me and I think it was those green shades. When the palette arrived I was shocked at the heavy, gold case. It feels luxurious and nice. I immediately used it to create a cute eye look with the green colors. The shadows are all very pretty. There is a lot more shimmer in real life than you can see online. I learned quickly that a little goes a long way with these shadows. They are hard to blend if you get too much product on your eye but blend perfectly if you use a small amount at a time and blend as you go. There is almost no fallout and the colors are all buttery and bendable. I've been reaching for this palette a lot more than I thought I would and I have tons of eyeshadow pallets. This one keeps calling to me.
More sparkly and pretty than I thought!

I bought this because I wanted to try Stila eyeshadows. It seemed like it would be muted earthy tones but they're not! The medium orange and medium pink are the same depth in tones so my first look with them came out a little muddy but when I wore them in separate looks with one of them on the lid with the dark plum in the outer corner and one of the mattes as a transition shade, it came out to a beautifully molten metallic look, especially using the gold in the inner corner. The gold is a bit sheer so it's definitely best in the inner corners. The greens are great for when you want colors after a few days of neutrals! The two greens are very wearable together especially with adding the dark plum in the outer corner. My favorite palette of Summer 2020.

This palette is perfect for adding color to your look without having to use bright bold color. The shadows are pigmented but the tones make them wearable for everyday use. This will be my go to summer palette!

When this launched, I was just taken by the colors. The greens especially. They look frosted and yet warm at the same time. The clay colors reminded me of all the wonderful trips I have spent in the desert. The name of the palette, "Road Less Traveled" just made me want it even more because, like the rest of us, I have been under quarantine for a very long time. So, even though I shouldn't have, I did. I bought this palette.
It arrived today. I have never owned anything from Stila before. First off, lets just talk about the packaging. The box itself is white, minimalist, clean, perfect. Then you remove the palette. Sleek, heavy, it basically was the feel of sliding into a new car for the first time. When you open the palette you are met with a full size mirror, which I love in theory, but I will need to protect it when I travel. The pan size of the colors is pretty standard. The colors themselves are lovely to look at. You receive two matte and six metallic shades that are earth tones. I couldn't wait to use them, so I went for it, even though my big event for the day was putting dinner on the table. There is fall out, so do your eyes first and I suggest using a primer. But, seriously, I do not mind. The shades are pigmented so be careful, you can always go back and add more but it is hard to remove color once applied. The shades blend beautifully and do not become muddy when applied next to each other. The one word that keeps coming back to mind when thinking about this palette is that it is elevated. The colors are earth tones, we have seen them before, but these shades are formulated in such a way that they look rich, deep and lovely. I feel that the shades would play well on lighter and medium skin tones. I think the matte shades might not translate well onto richer skin tones, however I think the burnt orange and metallic rose gold would look stunning!
Even if you own an earth toned palette already, I highly recommend this one. It is just that good.
