Adventurous in Aspen Travel Palette from Stila

Similar to Trendsetting in Tokyo, this palette was a limited edition from last winter.

Eyeshadows:
  • Snow Angel (shimmery silver blue) - one of the two better shadows, decent pigmentation
  • Icicles (muted matte navy blue) - I don't know what it is about Stila's mattes and blues that keep falling short or why the pan dulled to a weird color after use, terrible pigmentation, difficult to swatch
  • Glisten (shimmery gold) - best pigmentation out of the four eyeshadows, smooth application
  • Ajax (matte black with gold glitter) - the glitter is flaky and a lot of it ends up adding to fallout, pigmentation is not impressive at all
Convertible Color:
  • Rosy (pink) - a lot pinker than I expected but nice nonetheless, felt creamier than Sakura and doesn't stain on me like Sakura does

I thought I would like this palette, but most of the eyeshadows really disappointed me. Also, I have enough dupes of the gold color that doesn't make this palette worth the 10$ even with the convertible color.
