As mentioned in my haul post here, I received the Stila In The Light palette as a giveaway prize winner, woo! This is a gorgeous palette with pretty wearable neutral colours, hope this review is helpful!
|A quote on the inside of the lid instead of a mirror.|
This palette is in a light but sturdy cardboard packaging with a magnetic lid. There is no mirror which is a bummer as I am quite used to using the one on whatever palette I am using at the time,but it is not a deal breaker. On the back of the palette has the names of the colours, which is a little bit annoying to turn the palette over to see what you are using until you get used to the names.
It also comes with a full sized smudge stick that has it's own little compartment under the shadows with a pull out ribbon.
Colours: A range of neutrals reminiscent to those in the Urban Decay Naked palettes, there are 4 matte and 6 shimmery shades and are good for day time natural makeup looks but can easily be transformed into dramatic night time makeup looks with the darker colours. There is a selection of warm & cool shades. It includes the very famous Kitten which is a beautiful shimmery highlight or lid colour depending on how you would use it.
Texture: They are buttery so they apply smoothly but with no fall out. If you pick up too much of the shimmery shades it may leave a little bit of a mess in the palette so it's just a habit you need to remember to stop.
Pigmentation: The shimmery colours are so pigmented that you only need one or 2 swipes on a brush, but as per usual the matte colours are a little bit harder to work with. Although they are still pigmented you may need a few more swipes but Bare, a yellow-toned highlighter is the hardest to show up out of all of them, as you will see in the swatches.
Longevity: As always I work with a primer to aid in anything lasting longer, so I cannot comment on that, but I haven't experienced any creasing or fading throughout wear.
I would definitely recommend this palette because of its pretty neutral & wearable shimmery colours & versatile use if that is what you are looking for.
You can buy this palette from Beautybay.com for $35.55 and they have worldwide shipping
