Hellooooooo y’all. What’s next from me? Nothing but an awesome review on Stila Cosmetics; In The Light Palette! Heck yeah..! I’ve heard so much about Stila Cosmetics but never got around to purchasing anything from that brand. I think it’s the packaging. It didn’t “WOW” me if you know what I’m talking about. *Tsk* *Tsk*, first impressions.
Product & Packaging
Okay. I think everyone’s always fascinated with the packaging right? Or is it just me? First impression, wasn’t that great. I like all things quirky, fun, exciting, bold and maybe a little bit of cuteness? But.. it’s always the content/ end results that gives you the decision as to whether or not the product delivers. This palette came in a recycled looking outer packaging and it’s light brown? Yeah, I know it represents the word neutral. I get it OK..
Product contains 10 neutral eye shadows; 2 matte and the rest shimmery colors, nothing glitter overload which I don’t fancy much. Total net weight of the eyeshadows are 0.49 oz or 14g which is of equivalent 1.4 g per color. That’s enough to last you for a while even if you use it on a daily basis. The palette is light weight and made out of cardboard packaging. Comes together with a smudge stick waterproof eyeliner in Damsel. Seriously, seeing the smudge sticks in Sephora/ online reviews didn’t even make me bat an eye but after trying it out, this eyeliner is to die for. It’s creamy and so easy to blend. Quite comparable to Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliners. I usually use this product at the lower lash line and smudge it out with the color Sandstone and voila… you’ve got the perfect subtle smoky look. 3 other palettes available; In The Know Palette, In The Moment Palette and In The Garden Palette.
A how-to lookbook was included in the palette containing 6 eye looks you can create with the palette. Great palette for those starting out their journey in beauty/makeup.
Absolutely love it. I wasn’t expecting it though, judging by the looks of it. So, lesson learnt, never judge a book by its cover. The colors are very pigmented and easy to blend. It feels so silky and smooth and yet very little fall out. Made in USA.
Swatches were done with the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk.
Heart shapes = Fav colors!

I’m glad that this product was gifted to me. Otherwise I wouldn’t have had the pleasure of getting to know this product and making it my other BFF. Now, I’m looking forward to purchasing more of their palettes and their products. But, I own too many eyeshadows for now, so I’m gonna put it in my wishlist and hopefully Christmas comes early! Dear Santa, I wish for 3 palettes from Stila Cosmetics for this year’s Christmas; In The Know Palette, In The Moment Palette and In The Garden Palette. I hope I’m not too greedy. Thank you!
Till then, Toodles!
