Stila In The Light Palette Review & Swatches

My JCPenny recently opened up a Sephora inside of it, even though we have a large Sephora already I was still excited to go check it out. I have heard that the Sephora stores inside JCPenny were usually pretty small but I was surprised at how large it is and how much they carry.

I was really pleased to see Stila because they pulled Stila out of the full Sephora, apparently it wasn't selling well, so I'm hoping it stays in JCPenny.

So of course I had to pick something up. This new palette instantly caught my eye. I swatched these in store and they felt amazing. Great color payoff and they went on butter smooth!

Colors from L to R top row ~ Bare, Kitten, Bliss, Sunset, & Sandstone.
Bottom Row ~ Champagne, Gilded Gold, Luster, Night Sky, & Ebony.

I swatched these with no primer and this is how great the color payoff is.

This is a great set of everyday colors but you can also create a really pretty smokey eye as well. I also love that you get a great set of matte shades as well, for your highlight and crease.

I have been using this everyday since I bought it. It definitely rivals the Urban Decay naked palette in my opinion. I honestly don't use my naked palette very often anymore, I feel like the matte shades in the, In The Light palette gives me an overall better eye look. I don't like when palettes don't include a good set of matte shades, because I don't need my highlight, crease, and lid color to all be shimmery, that's just too much. Stila's In The Light Palette gives me the matte shades that I want.

You also get a great Smudge Stick waterproof liner in Damsel. I have a couple of these already and I love them! They are super pigmented and glide on so smoothly. They are long lasting, which is always a plus!

Here is a swatch of Damsel.

This is going to be a great palette for the Holiday season coming up. You can create some great neutral eyes to pair with bold red lips! Ahh I love it!

Overall this is an amazing palette! Do not pass this one up! I highly recommend it. This will also make a great Christmas present or stocking stuffer!

You can find this on for $39

I was going to buy my mum the Naked palette but this post has me thinking that maybe this would be a better choice for her since it has more matte shades. & also because the Naked palette is still so hard to find in stores here.

Would you say the colour payoff & texture is pretty much the same?

@Saimese, yes definitely the color payoff is just as good as UD! Your mom will love it!
