Stila In The Light Palette - Reviewed!

So today I thought I would share with you one of my current favourite products. I've been wanting to try some Stila eyeshadows for a while now and after seeing a few reviews on this palette I thought it would be the perfect thing to try.
The palette comes in the classic cardboard box like most Stila products, it also comes with a small booklet with a range of looks you can do using this palette. I always think these are a nice idea if you struggle to put looks together.
The palette itself comes with 10 neutral shades as well one of Stila well loved smudge stick eyeliners in damsel.
All the shades in the palette are perfect for an everyday look but it also includes some darker shades which would be perfect for a smokey eye. There are 4 mattes shades including a pigmented matte black and 6 shimmery shades.
Left to Right from the top- Bare, Kitten, Bliss Sunset, Sandstorm. Bottom row L-R - Bubbly, Gilded Gold, Luster, Night Sky and Ebony.
I love that this palette includes shades like Kitten which is one of Stila's most popular shades and I love it! Another favourite of mine is Bubbly which is a lovely shimmery gold, I feel like is a much more wearable version of Half Baked by Urban Decay.
As you can see all the shades are well pigmented, even the matte shades which isn't always the case with some palettes. The eyeliner is also very pigmented and is great for smudging on the lash line but it also doesn't move all day.

All in all I think this palette is definitely worth the money. At £25 you are getting some great shadows which are so smooth and easy to use as well as a great eyeliner. Some of the shadows can give a little fall out but this can be avoided when you get used to using them. The only downside for me is the packaging is a bit flimsy, it that is is only made of cardboard. However you just have to be careful how you store and travel with it.

I haven't stop using this palette since I got it a few weeks ago which shows how much i'm loving it at the moment. The palette is available from Stila's website with free delivery! 

Will you be getting this palette? Do you like Stila eyeshadows?
