Call me an eyeshadow palettes addict but I’m just so obsessed with them! Can’t seems to shake this obsession off. I caved in after watching and reading the raves of this Stila eyeshadow palettes which are now on Specials. Out of curiosity and my love for eyeshadow palettes needless to say I grabbed all the four themes in one cart. Free Shipping for orders more than $50.00 – so why not save extra more!
I received them a couple of days ago and I instantly took an instagram photo and shared it on twitter after the mailman left. I’m super thrilled to share my first impression reviews with you guys. This is my first encounter with Stila’s palette and I’m going to do them one at a time.
Seriously, I mean seriously I actually ordered four of Stila’s eyeshadow palettes online and the best part is that it was on sale. Doesn’t anyone love a good bargain? Well, I do! So, instead of paying $39.00 a palette I only paid $20.00. Please tell me, how cool is that!
So, I got the :-
In the garden/In the moment/In the light and In the know = each palette will be showcast and review every week for the next four weeks.
I’ll start with this week’s eyeshadow palette “In the Garden” by Stila for $20.00 in their sale section. Net wt: 0.40 oz. Available at Stila or at Sephora website. It comes in a cardboard packaging which is paperlight and inside includes a smudge stick waterproof eye liner in Starfish. There are ten garden inspired shades in this palette with endless combination to wear everyday. Included also a lookbook just in case you ran out of ideas or a guide to gorgeous eye makeup look.
Spring is late this year. As I’m writing, my first impression review the weather outside is still in the minus sign. We have a long winter somehow. But I’m not complaining since I got this eyeshadows “In the Garden” and these colors happened to cheer me up 🙂 If you are reading this and feeling that you need some boost of spring appearance head over to your computer, please do yourself a favor and order it. It’s a limited edition and/or while stock lasts.
Are you ready for what’s in the garden?
From top row L-R: chinois (matte), breeze (shimmer), bark (shimmer), freesia (shimmer), rosette (metallic)
From bottom row L-R: nectar (matte), honey (metallic), sage (shimmer), moss (shimmer), juniper (shimmer)
The smudge stick waterproof eyeliner is of muted mossy green with a subtle gold shimmer.
My favorite shades are nectar, honey, moss and freesia. The Chinois and Nectar are best for highlights or as base shadow while Moss and Juniper makes very good liner colors. I like that they included two contrasting color of Freesia and Rosette with the other four muted greens. These eyeshadows can be applied wet or dry depending on your preference and both methods are sure to deliver the best results you desire.
All the shades are amazing. This palette has very good pigmentations and it blends very well with no fall out.
I’m wearing a nectar shade as my base on my lids. Then I use the metallic rosette on my crease and nectar as highlight. I’m doing a Pink Haze eye makeup look.
As beautiful palette for spring and a transitioning into summer. Yay!!!
Overall, I think this is a fabulous palette and reasonably priced considering that it is now on sale and compare as to similar high-end palettes.
