Stila In The Light Eyeshadow Palette

Assalamualaikum & Hi Lovelies,

How are all of you doing? I hope everyone has been enjoying their long weekend Raya Haji Holiday. Well if you all have notice, i'm a fan of nude/natural eyeshadows. I actually had Stila In The Light Eyeshadow Palette in my Pinterest Beauty List for quite a while. Hoping that one day, maybe just one day i might get it in one of my international beauty swaps, or maybe just maybe there will be some SALE or discount that will happen in Sephora. And guess what, when it came the day that i received an email from Sephora and they were' having 57% discount for selected items, and one of it were Stila's eye makeup palette. 

The discount was in conjunction with Malaysia's 57th Independence Day, so i decided to call my trusted lil sis Amanda and told her that we need to go to Sephora to get this, i mean for me to get this. So we did and we went to Sephora in Sunway Pyramid, alhamdulillah it was available and i quickly grab hold of this Stila In The Light Eyeshadow Palette

If you haven't take note of this palette or have not took any notice of it, you may do it so now... hehehehe. Describe as a wearable, neutral shades for every skin tone that can be worn both wet or dry.

The palette also includes a Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner in Damsel, which is a matte chocolate brown and also not forgetting a 6 page look book. 

The lovely shades that are in it, all together there are 10 of it. The shade includes:-

Bare - A matte ivory shade
Bliss - A matte beige pink
Sunset - Shimmery canyon pink
Sandstone - Matte light coco
Bubbly - Pale Gold shimmer
Gilded Gold - Golden brown with shimmer
Luster - Dark aubergine with hold shimmer
Night Sky - Blue with shimmer
Ebony - Black

In total 5 shimmers and 5 matte, which a perfect balance if you want to create both day and night look.

The swatches ^_^

The look book consist of 6 different looks with details on how-to tips and tricks.

Swatch of the Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner.

The total weight of the palette is .49 oz and retails at RM 126 at all Sephora outlets in Malaysia. And thanks to the the 57% discount i actually got to purchased it for RM54.18 *squeal with delight*....

I definitely love the palette, as they have lovely shades and i can't wait to try it. The compact packaging is actually slim and light, since it's more of a cardboard material. And with a big mirror, it would definitely make it easy for us ladies to touch up or do our eye makeup wherever we want. The Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner which is a bonus, is quite easy to apply on, but i guess the only downside is that the propel pencil does not retract. I did some research after purchasing the item and i was wondering how do i get the Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner propel from it's casing, and i heard that you have to tilt it down a little but be careful at the same time since the bullet cannot be retracted back to it's origins.

So i guess that's all for now, can't wait to create a look with it and post it up once i'm free. Till than Assalamualaikum and take care.... ^_^
