I finally took the plunge and bought this palette from Stila. If you follow my blog, you know two things: I love all of Stila’s products and this palette has earned a spot on every wish list and gift guide I create. But the $49 price tag always made me think twice about buying it…until now.
After using my Stila eyeshadow trio down to the very last spec, I rationalized this purchase as a need, not a want (are you proud, Suze Orman?). Okay, you are entitled to be shaking your head in disagreement, but at least it is a purchase I will use — and it will last me for many seasons to come.
I found my soulmate when I spotted Stila’s Eyes are the Window Shadow Palette aptly named — Soul. See, it was meant to be! This palette contains 12 eyeshadow shades from the perfect base color to an every day shimmer, plus darker buildable tones. Trust me, this palette is all you will ever need in your makeup arsenal. I can already tell that Kitten, Affection, Thought, Peace, and Vitality are shadows that will be on repeat.
New to the whole eyeshadow game? Stila provides a handy chart with the palette to show you three ways to mix and match the shades — ranging from smart, sophisticated, and sexy. If you prefer lighter or darker tones, try the other palettes Stila makes in Mind, Body, or Spirit.
Can we talk about the packaging for a minute? The product alone is fabulous, and the rose gold case could have won me over just on looks. I think we can all agree that rose gold is having quite a moment. I know I shouldn’t judge a palette by its packaging, but I just did!
