Eye Shadow Swatch

To give you a better idea of how the colours would look like on a fairer skin tone, here:

Just to make things clear, the Desire shade is there but it blends in well with both our writers’ skins. As you can clearly see, some of the shades are quite light and need a fair amount of layering. Majority of the shades are shimmery or with sparkles, but there are some with matte finishing, such as the Catalyst, Whim and Captivate.

We’d recommend the Impulse and Desire as a base shade, and the Instinct for highlighting. The rest work fine as lid colours.

Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner Swatch

To answer that all-important question – yes, it really is waterproof! We tried rubbing it off with wet tissue and running it under water, but lo and behold; it’s still there! The deep metallic purple would go well with the eyeshadow shades in this palette.

What We Liked About The Palette

Easy To Wear Colours! The brown and purple centric shades are really great for subtle day or classic night looks.

All in one box! We absolutely enjoyed the fact that the box comes with every tone needed to complete a look; from base colours to shades for creases, In The Moment has them all!

It is portable! The Stila In The Moment palette box is not too big and really light, making it super practical and great travel buddy for trips! Though, it would’ve been more awesome if a mirror was included in.

It is not just about the shades! Let’s face it; who doesn’t like extra gifts! The full size Smudge Stick makes a great addition to the set and the sall pocket size lookbook is also a really nifty makeup companion with its tutorials tips!

Overall, we really did enjoy the this eye shadow palette from Stila! We absolutely love the neutral and shimmery tones and can easily see ourselves slipping this box into our handbags, and keeping it there as a handbag essential!
