What’s the best gift you could give—or get—this holiday season? We say love. Only love can be kind of hard to ship. So instead we recommend the Stila A Whole Lot of Love Gift Set, which is inspired by love letters. It has 20 eye shadows, a mascara, and four blushes, all tucked away inside a case that’s shaped like a letter. The palette also has a delicate gold pattern that looks like vintage stationary and an ornamental wax seal to add to the romantic letter effect. Send it as a gift to a friend, sister, or mom and you’re sending a message of love and beauty—or show yourself some love this holiday season and keep it!
What’s inside is even more beautiful than the exterior (know anyone that sounds like?). The four blushes work on a variety of skin tones, with a bright bubble gum pink, a berry shimmer, a shimmery golden peach, and a dusty rose shade. The brighter pink and peach bring a natural flush, like you just came in apres ski, and the berry and dusty rose works great for contouring. The 20 eye shadows are everything a gal needs in her bag of tricks. The shades also cover such a wide span, including nudes so wearable you’ll end up using them every day—hello, Nude Shimmer and Rose Pewter. There are also deep, intense shades that would be perfect for New Year’s Eye smoky eyes, a girls’ night out, or date night—especially Eggplant, Black Pearl, Denim, and Coal. Plus, you can play around with texture, since the 20 are a mix of matte, pearl, and shimmer. Finish eyes off with the included Stila Extreme Lash Mascara, which makes for bold black lashes that you can bat at anyone. Who knows—maybe it will lead to a love letter (or at least a thank-you note from anyone lucky enough to receive it as a gift from you).
