The Find Your Magic palette was exclusive to Stila's website and has a mix of 4 limited edition shadows, a rosy cheek color, and a bronzer.
If you've never purchased one of the small palettes Stila released on a regular basis, they typically have 4 shadows, a cheek color, and a highlighter/bronzer. They also include a small mirror inside and a face chart showing you one look you can do with the colors in your palette. I don't typically use these face charts. I'd much rather do my own looks ;)

|These are the shadows in the Find Your Magic palette. Shine and Magic are similar in person as well as in this photo, though you can see that Magic has a slight pink hue.|
|These are the face powder shots - Love (blush) and Shimmer (bronzer)|
These are pictures of the shadows, blush and bronzer applied to my skin with brief reviews of their overall performance.
|Shine eyeshadow is a shimmery white. I had to apply this over pixie epoxy because, like all of the Stila eyeshadows I've tried, the shadows were fairly powdery and didn't have a lot of pigmentation or staying power on their own.|
|Twinkle eyeshadow is a shimmery mixture of purple and gray with a pewter flash. This was also applied over pixie epoxy because it didn't have a lot of staying powder on it it's own because it was so powdery.|
|Magic eyeshadow is more of a highlighter than actual shadow in my opinion. It has a pinkish flash to it, but even after using pixie epoxy and applying a good amount this was the most I could get out of it.|
|Starry eyeshadow has a plum base with a pinkish-plum flash to it.|
|Love is a fairly bright pink blush with a hint of gold sprinkled throughout it. It was a tad powdery, but this was the overall effect on bare skin.|
I think these shadows are great for winter, but the consistency and application is probably the downside. For someone that wants a super pigmented shadow (like me) these would definitely need a sticky base in order to get the most out of them. However, one of my sisters is a huge fan of Stila shadows because she tends to wear her makeup fairly subtle. She wears Stila shadows on a regular basis. The blush was fairly bright and I tend to be able to wear quite a range of pink colors, but I'm not sure how these would do with someone that's super pale. Possibly well if applied lightly. The bronzer isn't dark enough to be a bronzer on me right now, but maaaaaybe by mid-winter I'll be light enough that this will actually show on me enough to either give me a little facial color or use for contouring. I guess we'll see!
The Stila Find Your Magic Palette retails for $14.
