My name’s Becca and I’m an eyeshadow palette addict. You can bet at any given time I have a list of eyeshadow palettes that I just need in my collection, because I just don’t have anything like it! (I do, because they’re all neutrals!). My newest addition to my growing collection is the Stila ‘In The Light’ palette – one that I’ve seen on so many blogs and which also features the infamous shade ‘Kitten’. I thought I’d put together a little post with some swatches for you to check out if you’re interested, and I’ll definitely be back with a proper review and makeup look, but from what I’ve tried so far I’m loving the consistency and colour pay-off for the most part!
As you can see this palette comes with 10 neutral toned shades which are a mixture of matte/satin and shimmer, and which are housed in cardboard packaging. I must admit though, it is much more sturdy and much more beautiful than I expected this palette to be. The rose gold packaging which has a magnet closure feels less flimsy in your hands than you’d expect it to, I wouldn’t worry popping this in my travel bag as long as it was somewhere it would be kept flat. The palette also comes with a full sized Stila ‘Stay All Day’ liner in Damsel (dark brown), a booklet with a selection of looks you can create with the palette, and a large mirror.

Immediate favourites definitely have to be Bubbly and Night Sky – the latter being almost like a duo-chrome. In this picture it comes off quite dark but in some lights it definitely looks a much brighter sparkling blue! So hopefully I’ll be able to properly show that off in a makeup look soon! I managed to get this palette for £20 from Beauty Bay since it was in the sale for £23-ish, and I got a further 10% off with my birthday code which brought it down to £20.02, but it usually retails for around £25.
Just before I go; is the Stay All Day liner pencil and twist up thing?! I twist but mine won’t do anything! Someone help a girl out here!
Also do leave in the comments your favourite eyeshadow palettes – I need to know what to get next!
