For the past three weeks it has been fun
and a learning curb for me to be experiencing all these four awesome palettes by Stila. I will put a link down below of all my previous reviews on Stila eyeshadow palettes in case you like to go back to read them. So, don’t forget to check them out. I would definitely say I love all the palettes for their amazing discounted price and beautiful shadows ❤
So, today’s star of the week is Stila In the know eyeshadow palette. I’ve heard many amazing things about this palette and was feeling inspired by my good friend, Ingrid from curlyspringblossom – I ‘m excited to share my reviews with you guys.. You guys know that I really love a good eyeshadow palette ❤
The simplicity of this palette is itself sleek and thin. It has a decent sized-mirror on the top lid. I love the how-to booklet and I think this is super helpful tool for those in need of extra inspiration when it comes to all these beautiful matte shades. Like all its predecessors the packaging is the same except the color on the exterior and of course the interior eyeshadows. The special offer is at $20.00 until stock lasts.
These eyeshadows can be used wet or dry. The eyeshadows are interesting and I can’t wait to try them on wet application using these matte shades.
Apparently Stila really likes to be in a lot of things. In the moment, In the light, In the garden and now comes in the know. The palette comes in a muted earthy shades with the exception of Fire the only shade that stands out the most and a full sized waterproof smudge stick eyeliner.
Stila waterproof smudge stick eyeliner in Halfmoon is in deep blue-ish grey with a shimmer. From a far it looks like a regular grey but up close you can see the blue-ish grey which is pretty to compliment the other earthly shades. The quality of this eyeliner is amazing and the formula waterproof tight. It stays put and won’t budge or fade after wearing the whole day.
The shades include:-
Top row L-R:
- Air – a pale off-white cream
- Wind – a light nude beige
- Desert – amid-tone peachy nude
- Clay – a mid-tone muted pink nude
- Earth – a deep cool brown
Bottom row L-R:
- Driftwood – a mid-tone warm brown
- Fire – a spicy muted orange
- Rain – a mid-tone muted taupe
- Smoke – a mid-tone cool grey
- Ebony – a dep cool grey
The color swatches above is applied on bare skin (without primer)and on dry application. I didn’t get to try them on wet though. But if you like me to do another review just on wet application using this “In the know” please leave your comment below.
Previous eyeshadow palette reviews:-
Overall, I think this is a pretty nice matte eyeshadow palette. Not the best that I’ve come across but acceptable pigmentation and texture for sure. I like the fact that this matte eyeshadow can be wore wet which I seldom do but it will be nice to try. Also, the eyeliner is of excellent quality and I’m glad to have collected four palettes in my makeup stash.
