Today I will be reviewing the Stila In the light palette for you all. This was featured in my last USA haul & I also gave one away in my last giveaway. Now onto the review!
How does it perform?
Pigmentation: 3/5. All shadows are decently pigmented. However as is annoyingly common with most eyeshadow formulas, the shimmer shades are a lot more pigmented than the matte shades.
Texture: 4/5. The Stila In the light palette houses 6 shimmer shades & 4 mattes. As you can see in the swatches above, the texture of the shadows differ depending on their finish. However in general, they are all smooth, and the shimmer shades apply like butter.
Packaging: 3/5. The packing of this palette is sleek and compact, but it is still a little bulky, when you compare it to the LORAC Pro palette which is extremely slim. However this is because it houses a full size Stila smudgestick in Damsel (a matte dark brown). The packaging is cardboard, but is still quite sturdy, and features a magnetic closure.
Longevity: 5/5. These shadows all have great longevity and last 12 hrs + with a primer. You can’t argue with that!
Application: 4/5. All the shades apply well, however the shimmer shades require less work as they are a lot more pigmented than their matte counterparts.
Bang for your buck (quality for the $$): 4/5. The Stila In the light palette contains 10 eyeshadows, and 14g of product. It also contains a full size Stila smudgestick in Damsel, which retails for $20 alone.
