The new Stila Eye & Cheek Palette

Stila Perfect me, perfect hue eye & cheek palette
Please let's pause for a minute in our busy lives to fully appreciate the beauty of this Stila eye and cheek palette..

Ok yes, I too have been lusting after the newly released Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette but at £49.00 and a kitchen and bathroom about to be re-tiled, I just couldn't justify this. (Insert crying face emoji).

But behold this totally comparable eye and cheek palette from Stila and at £28.00 this is much more attainable. So what do you get?

Firstly the packaging is divine. A sturdy hard plastic gold coloured case, with a subtle leopard print on the front. This is the most travel friendly palette I have seen. The same size as the palm of your hand you get five eye shadows and two blushes. I actually think and would use the darker blush as a bronzer/contour. The case also has a large mirror in the lid.

The Perfect Me, Perfect Hue palettes from Stila are new and come in four different skin tone hues. There is:

  • Fair/Light - a selection of light hues perfect for fair skin tones
  • Light/Medium - a selection of brown and neutral hues for medium skin tones
  • Medium/Tan - a selection of copper and purple tones hues for tanned skin tones
  • Tab/Deep - a mixture of light and dark hues to compliment deep skin tones.
I went for the light/medium and in this palette you get:

Eye shadows:
Dazzling - highlight/illuminator (index finger below)
Spontaneous - for the crease (middle finger below)
Ambitious - for eye lid (ring finger below - my favourite!)
Mischievous - liner (little finger below)

The other eye shadow is:

Artistic - base shadow (index finger below). I was hoping to be able to use this as a cheek highlighter but it is too matt, but still great as it's intended purpose of being a base shadow.

Charming (middle finger below)
Angelic (ring finger below). I'm sorry that this hasn't shown up on camera but it's a lovely soft terracotta brown colour.
Stila swatches
All of the colours are really pigmented, buttery and apply like a dream. The colours are matt but with a subtle shimmer in dazzling and ambitious.

This is going to be my palette for the summer, holidays and travelling. I think I need the other palette hues now..
