Stila In The Light Palette Review

In The Light Palette Review


With all honesty, this palette is by far one of my favorites. There are some downfalls to this palette, but I feel that the quality and the colors incorporated in this palette really outweighs the negatives. 


1. Fallout: There is a lot of fallout when using these eyeshadows. I find that the matte eyeshadows aren't so much of a problem; the shimmery shadows are the ones that get messy. I feel that they are loosely packed so they get all over your palette and can fall on your bottom eye area when applying it, so you just need to be very careful. Just be sure to tap off any access shadow on your brush and you should be fine!

2. Weak Packaging: The packaging is a cardboard material, which makes it a little difficult to travel with. The cardboard is easy to dent and it may not be safe to bring on vacation with. Another thing is that the closure is a small magnetic clasp. The magnetic closure is very weak so the palette can easily open in your bag and this can be very messy. 


1. Matte Black & Brown: I feel that a major necessity in every eyeshadow palette is to have a matte brown and black eyeshadow. This can be used for a smokey eye look, liner, under eye area, etc. This is a MUST MUST MUST!

2. Great Highlight: This palette has the perfect highlight color in "bare". It's great for under the brow and to use as an all over lid color as well. It's matte and it's more of a creamy shade rather than ghost white, so it's a very natural and soft highlight. 

3. All Over Lid Shadow: I always need to have a beautiful all over lid shadow in a palette because this is the color that will make your eyes "pop". This palette has two great shimmer shadows in "kitten" & "champagne". I love this because it's not a chunky glittery shadow; it's soft and shimmery AND it reflects the light beautifully. 

4. Texture: The texture is AMAZING! Let me tell you!!! It's so easy to blend. It's a very velvety texture and it feels so smooth against the lid.
