Nice natural palette, a bit dark in tons so harder for pale skin. nice colours and compact
After trying my hand with different shadows I tried the Stila Natural Eye Shadow Palette and loved all the combinations I could make. The colours are subtle so it's great for beginners and easy to blend. The colour has pretty much lasted me through the whole work day, mind you I am wearing a primer underneath, but still it works! Also I'm a sucker for a little sparkle in my shadow, so this palette definitely gives you that, hopefully the pot lasts me a while without breaking, which is sully the case with most of my shadows. I'll definitely be trying more of Stila, maybe even some darker shades!
For the most part, the colours are pigmented and the pencil is soft and glides on so smoothly. Both the shadows and liner last all day on me (I do prime the lids and eye area though). The colour range and selection is nice and allows for softer or more dramatic looks. There is alot of product fallout which is annoying.
The thing that ruins my opinion of this palette is how cheaply constructed it is. I am very gentle when I use my palettes and I throw them in my purse because I do not want to break them or have product spilling out everywhere. I have only had this palette about a month and a half and one shadow pot already cracked (the shadow was coming out in chunks) and then it literally popped out of the main palette. I do not know if this is an isolated incidence but I am not impressed.
If anyone is looking into this palette because they want a nice selection of natural or neutral shades, I would suggest trying either of the Urban Decay Naked Palettes (1 and 2) because THOSE are well made palettes!
