Last week, I shared with you my recent online purchased for these eyeshadow palettes by Stila. I ordered and received four palettes in very good condition.
Today, I’ll be doing the second palette called “In the Moment” for a real first signs of spring. If you haven’t read my previous post, then you guys – check out their Stila palette which is now selling for $20.00 on discounted price. Original $39.00. So, it’s basically half price. I believe it’s a limited edition, so once it’s gone then that’s it, that’s all!
I’m obsessed with eyeshadow palettes and tend to order one of each for my vanity. I really don’t want to miss out on good deals and if you are reading this and have the urge to get one – I recommend you to try it. You get ten beautiful shades for only $20.00. That’s like $2.00 a pan and it’ll last you probably a year since they’re incredibly pigmented. I have four palettes so I guess it’s going to take me like … Oh my goodness … four years or forever since I have tons of palettes using my excel calculation (giggling!!!).
This palette is another gorgeous piece by Stila. The packaging is simple with a sturdy lavender color cardboard enveloping ten amazing shades.
Included in this palette is a smudge stick waterproof eyeliner in Tetra(metallic purple). This eyeliner seems to be a little bit of a challenge to use. There is some tugging and pulling happening when I try it on earlier. But the color is pretty. Another note is that there is no mirror in this palette. It comes with a little lookbook of 6 different look to refer.
Top Row (L-R): instinct- impulse – glance – improvise – catalyst
Bottom Row (L-R): desire – wonder – spontaneous – whim – captivate
These are all excellent color names to express “in the moment”. I love how pigmented these formulas are.
The shadows in pan is amazing and the shades are stunning. I tried the Purple Dream look from the little booklet but it doesn’t translate the color as much. In my opinion, the purple shades might be more suited for lighter skin type. Having said that, I really love the Improvise in plum tone on the second right top row. I think I’m going to wear Improvise as a one eyeshadow look which is so trendy now. I don’t want to say “No” to purple. I love purple – I have purple mug, purple lipsticks, purple blouse, purple flowers, purple rain (just kidding – that’s an old movie) and I actually have many purple eyeshadows. I just know there is some purple in me waiting to burst out. So, purple you are royal to me 🙂
This palette on the top row consists of purple hues except Instinct on the far left (highlighter), whereas on the bottom row are beautiful wearable neutral shades which I think is just fabulous. I love all the shades but especially more on the bottom row since it blends very nicely on me. It gives a soft dewy finish which I really adore.
I notice that the texture in this palette is not as soft as the In the Garden palette which I reviewed last week. The texture is creamy on Spontaneous but the rest are pretty common. It blends pretty well for the neutral but a little blotchy on the purple hues eyeshadows. Well it says here that this formula can be worn for wet or dry application. I usually wear them dry but if you like them wet for intense look. I suggest you go for it girl! It will dramatically awesome!
Out of the 10 shades, Catalyst and Captivate are two shades that are harder on pan but both has some beautifully purple micro-glitters on them.
Matte eyeshadows : Instinct, Desire, Glance and Whim
Shimmer eyeshadows: Impulse, Improvise, Wonder, Spontaneous
On this eyelook, I’m using the neutral shades of Wonder on lash line and lid and Whim to the crease and outer corner. I smudged it with the purple smudge stick eyeliner and completed it with a mascara by Flower.
Overall, my two cents opinion on this In the moment palette is that I love all the shades in the palette especially the neutrals since the purple shades doesn’t work so much on my skin tone. But it will look pretty on lighter skin type.
I will recommend this to my friends and family. For only $20.00 a palette now, you’re going to make yourself and many people happy:D
I give a thumbs up for reminding me the pretty pastel color of Spring flowers.
Which is your favorite color from the pan? Love to hear your comment.
