stila eyeshadow


| stila eyeshadow pan refill in cloud and  eyeshadow matte in sajama-  both rrp £10.78 (but i've seen these for as little at £1.40 on cheap smells!)


considering i don't wear an awful lot of eyeshadow i really do own an awful lot! but more recently i've been really trying to add it to my daily make-up routine so i can get some use out of my stash. these stila shadows were ones i had totally forgotten i even owned but they have quickly become my go to eye combo!

i love that these act as a refill for a palette but i do find it can be annoying if i want to stick them in make-up bag for use on the go. you don't really want to carry around a chunky palette for touch ups but carried alone you stand a high chance of them getting broken as they aren't well protected. it would prehaps be a nice idea to be able to buy single or smaller palettes to use for shadows such as this. that way you can easily chuck it in your bag for on the go.

cloud is a gorgeous golden, champagne colour which is perfect for an all over lid colour, great if your in a hurry and want something to quickly swipe on. sajama is a beautiful matte, grey which works well in the crease for a day if you don't want to go all out with a black. they make the perfect combination!

the shadows themselves are buttery soft and ever so smooth. they are beautiful to apply and so easy to blend making them perfect if you want a beautiful eye in a rush! i noticed next to no fall out which also massively reduced application time as i didn't have to touch up my foundation after i'd finished!

as for staying power i was a little disappointed. on a night out without a primer it really didn't stand the test of time and was almost gone by the time i got home. i found with a primer it did last a not longer but still not quite as long as i'd hoped. but don't worry i'm determined to find a way to make this work!



so would i buy some more shadows from stila? for £10.78 i don't think so. but when you can get them so cheap on other sites it would be rude not too really! you may not have as much choice but if you check back regularly they change the shadows for sale periodically. (well they do on cheap smells at least!) i can tell i''m going to have a full palette in no time!

do you own any stila shadows? any to recommend? what are your favourite eyeshadows at the moment?

  2. Looks great! I'm a huge fan of the Stila Smudge Pot in Kitten, a really pretty shimmery color that looks similar to Cloud.
