Stila In The Light Palette.



Up until this year, I didn't often wear eyeshadow as I felt a bit overdone going in to work or town with glittery brown shades on my lids. After I stopped wearing eyeliner every day, I found that wearing subtle shades during the day opened my eyes and so a love affair with eyeshadow begun. 

After many months of lusting after the Stila In The Light palette, I decided to splurge on FeelUnique a little while ago and of course, how could I resist this beautiful palette. In The Light is made up of an array of much-loved and very wearable Stila shades, all in one handy-sized, lightweight palette. I was drawn to the lighter, more day-wear appropriate shades such as Bare, Kitten and Sunset (on the left) but also liked that there was the option to smoke it up with the more sultry shades at the opposite end. I was also sold on the two matte brown shades, Bliss and Sandstone. 

Although most of the shades in the palette have a shimmer within, they're not overly glittery and I find the sheen is just enough for day to night use.
One of my most used shades is Gilded Gold, the lovely bronze shimmery shade second in from the left on the bottom row, it's perfect lightly pressed on to the lids and I wear it both day and night. 

A few people have said that Stila palettes, especially In The Light, can be quite crumbly. I've only experienced this when I've been a little heavy-handed with the ol' brush, so do make sure to gently press your brush to the eyeshadow, tap off any excess and again, press the shadow to your lid. 

Overall, this palette has had me swooning from day one. Out of all my palettes, this one is most reached for as the colour range and quality is incredible. If you don't already own this palette, definitely get hinting to the loved ones in time for Christmas!

  15. this is super pretty but I found that when I bought the naked 2 palette I still reached for my MUA heaven and earth more often so seemed like a waste of money... this will probably sway my eventually though! xx

  19. The colours are lovely - it's a bit on the pricey side for me but they are all wearable colours, which I like a lot. The thing with palettes is that you get really nice shades that are not exactly wearable during the day and I never use those! Love, love, love.

  20. I adore this palette, and recently also did a review on it.
    I definitely find patting with the brush rather than sweeping helps reduce fallout and makes it apply nicer.

  21. This looks beautiful - I'm on the lookout for a new palette and this might just fit the bill!
