Stila "In The Light" Palette | Review


Stila "In The Light" Palette £25 - I'll admit before I started working for Stila I'd never used any of their products before and my only saving grace was that I had heard of this little beauty from time to time. Obviously until I got to have a play with it myself I didn't appreciate just how lovely it is and how much you can do with it. You can never have enough neutral palettes in my eyes and although to my Other Half they all look exactly the same, one simply cannot be lived without. This is my perfect every day palette, costing just £25 it's pretty purse friendly considering you get 10 shadows and a smudgestick worth £13 on it's own. I won't go into the smudgestick much in this post as I have a dedicated one all about them coming up soon, but you get an exclusive colour with every palette that Stila do in their "In The..." range and this is a beautiful matte dark brown. A brilliant alternative to standard black that lasts and lasts. Back to the colours, although at first glance there may seem like one or two that you wouldn't use, it comes with a handy look book (that I've managed to lose) that teaches you how to get the most out of each and every colour. When I first saw it I thought Bliss (middle top) would never get a look in but now it's my most used product. With this you can either create the most subtle of looks for work (I sometimes just use bare, top left, on it's own to matte my eyelids and hid any imperfection) or you can really glam it up and use the shimmers and darker colours to create a full on smokey eye. It's hailed as a dupe for the Naked palettes (although I'm not sure I've decided which one, it's my perfect mixture of them all) but is an amazing £11 cheaper and you get the eyeliner. Honestly, this makes a wonderful gift if you're not 100% sure on which colours they'd use as there's bound to be something in there for them, and it's a lovely inexpensive treat to yourself too!
