Product Review: Stila In The Moment Eyeshadow Palette

It's no secret how much I love my Stila In The Light palette, I hate admit it, but I think I may love it more than both my Naked palettes, there I said it. So it was a real surprise when I wandered into Ulta on holiday and came face to face with a whole row of Stila palettes. I had no idea they did more than one, doh (bad beauty blogger). After I'd pulled myself together, I had to make the ultimate blogger decision, which one do I pick up?

There are in fact 4 palettes altogether, In The Light, In The Garden, In The Know and the one I ended up choosing, In The Moment. Believe me, it was tough decision I only allowed myself one and I was covered in swatches, but this one definitely stood out to me, I had to have it.

 How stunning is this palette, it's such a gorgeous selection of easy to wear naturals with a few darker colours to amp up any nighttime look. The majority of the colours have shimmer, with the lighter colours being a little more matte.

The pure pigmentation of this palette is amazing and all the shadows are so buttery soft and really easy to blend. They can sometimes leave a little fallout but I think that's because they are, so soft. £25 for 10 beautiful shadows that you can create an abundance of looks with = priceless. The two colours that stand out to me most are definitely Spontaneous and Wonder, I think they would look so pretty together.

The one tiny thing that could be improved on is the packaging, it is a bit flimsy, but that's not the end of the world. It's small, compact and way easier to lug around than the UD Naked palettes in my opinion.

I can't wait to use this palette, let me now if you are a fan of the Stila palettes and which one is your favourite. I may now have my eye on the In The Know Palette, uh oh haha.

Lastly I want to wish all my American readers a Happy 4th of July!!

XOXO Claire


  1. This looks absolutely beautiful! I agree with you that Wonder is stunning, and Improvise is definitely catching my eye too. I bet it would add something different to a smokey eye look :D

  3. Spontaneous and Wonder look like they'd be my favourites too! I agree, I think they'd look lovely together.
