Stila Written in the Stars Palette Review + Swatches

So I know this post is super late since this palette came out during the holiday season of 2012. However, I still wanted to give you guys my two cents on the palette since there are many of them floating around out there on internet websites including Hautelook and Stila. I like to use my palettes for a while before I review them, and it has taken me a while to work my way to this one since I have so many palettes. I am a palette junkie. If there was a self help group for palette addicts, I would probably fit right in. And as they say, acceptance is the first step :).  This palette was a gift from the lovely Anna.


For swatch reference, my foundation color in Urban Decay is 9.0, in Too Faced is Cocoa Beige, and in Clinique is 39G.


Starlight- Takes 3-5 swipes to get a good color payoff. Beige/yellow color with a hint of sheen/shimmer.
Eden-Takes 3-5 swipes to get a good color payoff. Peach/flesh color that is matte.
Luna-Baby/soft pink color with a hint of sheen. Takes 3-5 swipes to get a good color payoff
Sun-Peach/flesh color with more brown undertones and a bit of sheen;similar to Eden. Takes 3-5 swipes to get a good color payoff.


Ray-A milk chocolate color with a hint of sheen.Takes 1-2 swipes for good color payoff.
Galaxy-A matte milk chocolate. Takes 1-2 swipes for good color payoff.
Asteroid-A dark brown matte. Takes 1-2 swipes for good color payoff.
Constellation-A dark brown color with a hint of sheen. This one is darker than Asteroid. Takes 1-2 swipes for good color payoff.
These are the best shadows in the palette in terms of color payoff.


Pigalle-A red/brown with a hint of sheen. Takes 3-5 swipes for good color payoff.
Bouquet-Flesh colored matte that is more pink undertoned than Eden. Takes 1-2 swipes for good color payoff
Heaven-Salmon pink with sheen. Takes 3-5 swipes for good color payoff.
Ariel-Grilled salmon pink with sheen. Takes 3-5 swipes for good color payoff.

Overall, I believe the mattes have better color payoff than the sheen colors.
