Stila Correct and Perfect Palette Review

The Stila Correct & Perfect palette retails at R795.00 in South Africa. I bought mine at Woolworths but it is also available online from Takealot or Zando.

Let's talk packaging.

Can we just take a moment to appreciate the packaging for this palette? This solid and sturdy palette is matt gold and the lid has a pastel watercolour/marble effect with colours that represent the product inside. The lid also has a gold border and 'stila' typed in the same gold effect. Underneath the palette is a colour chart and instructions on where to use each colour corrector.

Inside the palette, the cream concealers are covered with a clear acrylic lid to stop any fallout from the powders ending up on the cream concealers.

Let's talk formula and promises.

Create complexion perfection with the Stila Correct & Perfect All-in-One Color Correcting Palette. The five velvety smooth cream colour correctors and two tinted setting powders are all you would need to help neutralize imperfections and brighten dull skin tones.

Say goodbye to under-eye circles, redness, uneven or dull skin with this all-in-one customizable color-correcting palette.

Top Left to Right: Peach Cream; Pink Cream; Yellow Cream; Green Cream; Orange Cream. Bottom Left to right: Yellow Powder; Lavender Powder.

What do you get?

Five cream colour corrects and two tinter setting powders.

Cream Correctors

Peach – neutralizes dark under-eye circles. Perfect for my skin tone.
Pink – brightens eye area and masks fatigue
Yellow – neutralizes hyper-pigmentation and dark spots
Green – counteracts redness (i.e. from rosacea, acne, broken capillaries, and sunburn). Always for my new break out and around the side of my nose.
Orange – counteracts dark under-eye circles on darker skin tones; also neutralizes veins. This is for days that I need to be extra and Peach is just not enough. For a full glam, this is what I use for maximum effect!

Pressed Setting Powders

Yellow – sets any correcting cream or can be used allover to even out skin tone
Lavender – sets pink correcting cream or can be used allover to brighten shallow/yellow skin

Top Left to Right: Yellow Powder; Lavender Powder. Bottom Left to right: Peach Cream; Pink Cream; Yellow Cream; Green Cream; Orange Cream.

So did it deliver?

While I have obvious under eye circles, they are usually not my biggest concern when it comes to correcting. I usually focus on my red spots and the red discolourations of my skin. I used to use the Yardley Anti-Redness HD Concealer, which is a thicker paste like concealer that never blended well under my foundation.

The cream colour correctors definitely helped me say goodbye to my under-eye circles and neutralised my imperfections. The setting powders are incredibly light and do not cake under the eyes. The cream colour correctors blend smoothly into my foundation and concealer.

Looking like a Dalmatian over here.

The Verdict.

At first the cost seemed out of my price range and I was worried about purchasing it, but I am glad that I took a chance on the product. Even though it was expensive, I do think that it is value for money. You get 5 highly pigmented cream concealer shades and 2 setting powders that require very little product to be used in one application. The cream formula blends well into the skin while keeping its colour, and blends well into foundation and concealer that is applied over it.

I love the fact that there are 5 shades in this palette - there is a shade for most skin tones and complexion concerns. I have even included this in my professional makeup kit to use on my clients because I enjoyed using it so much.
