Stila Diamond Lil Eye Shadow Rave Review & Swatch!

Awhile back I placed an order on and received a sample card with three Stila eye shadows on it, which included Diamond Lil. I instantly fell in love with this color! So much, that I used up all of what was pressed on the card, because I was using it everyday!

Flash ~ no primer
I ended up picking up the full size shadow from my Macy's and I'm so glad I did!

Sephora describes this shade as a shimmering metallic platinum, but it's a taupe eye shadow.

It's such a gorgeous color! It's so smooth and applies easily. It's also very easy to blend.

You can use this wet or dry, I prefer to use this shade dry because it's just so beautiful as it is.

This is a great lid color for a smokey eye, but it's also great for an everyday lid color.

I use this eyeshadow all the time now, it has become my go to color when I don't know what to wear. It works with everything!

Natural light ~ no primer

Here is a comparison swatch, From L to R Stila Diamond Lil, MAC Smoke & Diamonds, and Urban Decay Pistol from the Naked 2 palette.

If you like taupe eye shadows then you will love this! I highly recommend Diamond Lil!

You can find this on for $18.

What do you think of Diamond Lil? What are some of your favorite taupe eye shadows?

I was just thinking this was similar to Smoke and Diamonds...and you did the comparison for us! I tend to go for browns more than greys so I will pass, but it is beautiful and pigmented!

Thanks! Yes it's so pigmented! :)

Could you please post a picture of the bottom of the pan? I just want to check if the one I got is authentic or not as it looks different from my old stila shadows.
