Moment of honesty: I can’t remember anything without pictures. I started posting about Stila eyeshadows a while ago, but I let myself get interrupted by waves of seasonal collections. And now when I want to look up some Stila eyeshadow, it’s always one of the not-yet-published ones. Time to finish posting about these! (I’ll finish with a recap post that puts all the swatches in one place.)
Stila eyeshadows are fantastically soft, and today’s shades are some of the brand’s most pigmented (and best loved) shades. Poise is plum; Pigalle is a red-purple, like plush velvet theater seats. Golightly (originally named Holly Golightly, but changed for copyright issues) is golden brown. La Douce (named for Irma La Douce) is golden olive. Wheat is golden — a lot like wheat, actually. Diamond Lil is pewter, click here to compare it to MAC’s Smoke and Diamonds. Shore is a starry, shimmery grey that looks like it might pull blue. Storm is a soft black, or grey-black.
Stila eyeshadows are $18 each and are sold as loose pans. A magnetic aluminum pot will cost you another $2; a four-pan compact is $16. BeautyCrunch.com is a the best place I know to buy Stila at a bargain, and while you won’t find too many of the current eyeshadow shades there, you can get empty palettes, seasonal items, sets, and older shades at a real steal.
