Stila 'In The Light' Eyeshadow Palette - £25
Ever since the release of the Urban Decay Naked Palette the beauty world has been going crazy for the perfect nude eyeshadow palette, many have popped on to the scene, from MUA, to Sleek, to Stila, you name it, they've probably had a go! I've not been lucky enough to try any of them out, until now! I have had my eye on the Stila In The Light Palette since May when I saw Gemma from Gemsmaquillage review it, it appeared to be a good deal, with the equivalent Mac neutral palette setting you back over £100 - So when I came across this in my local boots I couldn't resist buying it!
Where do I start? This beautiful selection of shimmer, metallic and matte shadows comes in a lovely rose gold box, this sadly does not have a mirror but it does come with a free Stila Smudge Stick in Damsel which is a soft charcoal brown colour, beautifully soft and easy to work with; alone, it costs £13. The colour selection is perfect with a range of nude colours to take you from day to night, the iconic colour Kitten is also in this kit! At 1.4g per colour it really is a great deal - I have never felt such velvety shadows before, they almost melt on to the skin, even the matte colours; which I often find to be less easy to apply. Pigmentation is another plus point, absolutely amazing in all the colours except Luster, which sadly fails to impress, but I can handle that when 9 out of 10 are ace! They even last well, what more could you possibly ask for?
I have been toying with the idea of building a full Mac eyeshadow palette for some time but now I have this I can safely say I won't be tackling that expensive task any time soon!
I've taken a video of the colours to show the shimmery tones in the light, QVC style, as it's just beautiful!!
