Stila In The Light Eyeshadow Palette

Stila In The Light Eyeshadow Palette

Have you ever walked into a department store, gone to the make-up section and been overwhelmed by the choice of eyeshadow? The choices are endless... I have spent way too much of my time dithering, and wondering what will suit my eye colour and what colours work well together! Well look no further! Stila "In The Light" palette is a must have! I have instantly fallen in love with this neutral palette! This palette ticks all the boxes for me, the colour range is just perfect! It is award winning for a reason.

All the shades are highly pigmented, creamy and super easy to blend. In total there are 10 neutral shades, which are suitable for all skin tones:

Bare - matte ivory
Kitten - shimmery light pink
Bliss - matte pink beige
Sunset - shimmery canyon pink
Sandstone - matte chocolate brown
Champagne - shimmery light brown
Gilded gold - golden brown with shimmer
Luster - dark aubergine with gold shimmer
Night sky - shimmery grey/blue
Ebony - matte black with slight shimmer

You can create so many different looks and if you are stuck for ideas, the palette even comes with a little booklet of six different looks, from a basic matte look, to a smoky eye - perfect for beginners. I have actually sat in font of my vanity table and recreated them all (I clearly have too much time on my hands and surely thats what a vanity table is for?!). Anyway, along with the 10 eyeshadows, you also get a Stila smudge stick in damsel, which is a lovely dark matte brown which is great, as I love using dark browns along my lash line and then use my smudge brush from Real Techniques to blend it out a little to create a darker lash line - so this smudge stick is perfect! The smudge stick is easy to apply and waterproof - it really doesn't budge until you wash it off.

I also love the fact this palette has four matte shades. Although I own the Urban Decay Naked palette (another love of mine) it doesn't have as many matte colours as I would have liked. Also this palette has no dupes for the urban decay palette, in fact I dont have any shades that are the same as these in my make-up collection. My favourite shade from the palette has to be kitten and in all honesty this was one of the reasons I actually wanted to buy this palette in the first place. This eyeshadow is loved by bloggers and beauty gurus and I couldn't wait to get my hands on it! And of course I now love it too and I have worn it nearly everyday since purchasing it! It is fab all over the lid and a great inner corner highlight. The colours are so versatile - the shadows can be worn day or night, wet or dry - FAB! Furthermore the palette is a reasonable size so great for travelling and comes with a mirror so perfect for on the go.

So, I'm sure you would like to know how much this palette is worth? This palette is just £25 which is bargain in my eyes (see what I did there!) and far cheaper than the Urban Decay palettes. Stila eyeshadows are individually sold at £12 and the smudge stick is worth £13, so you are getting more than your monies worth! You can buy it online from Stila or feelunique and in store at Boots (if you are lucky enough to have a counter!). So, if you are in an eyeshadow rut or looking for a new palette, or your first... you must get your hands on this.

Do you have this palette too? What is your favourite shade?
