I’m always on the hunt for a great eyeshadow that not only is pigmented but also is something that I can wear on a daily basis. I tend to look for neutral colors that provide more of a natural look.
Stila is a well-known brand that produces quality makeup. I appreciate the quality of Stila products. I like that when I apply their products in the morning it lasts throughout the day. I don’t have to worry about my makeup fading before day end. When I purchased the color “Puppy” I was looking to branch out from the typical shimmery shades. I was looking to try a matte color that would enhance my eyes. I was not disappointed!
The shade falls under the neutral category of color. It’s very complimentary if attempting the natural makeup look. Because of the neutrality of the color, I find that I can wear this shade for a day or night look. It makes the color very versatile. It would also work really well when trying to achieve a sun-kissed look. I’m looking forward to wearing this shade during the summer months. It makes blue eyes really pop which I love! I have gotten more compliments when I wear this shade. It’s a must have if you have blue eyes!
It blends beautifully and is a great color to use as a base eyeshadow. It is pigmented and like other Stila shadows it lasts throughout the day. I saw very little fading. However when comparing this shadow to a Smashbox shadow I have found that the Smashbox is a lot more pigmented. I had to use more Stila shadow when attempting to create an evening look when compared to the Smashbox- where a little bit went a long way.
I was disappointed that the lid of the case (the clear plastic part) broke leaving the palette exposed to air and any other elements the case comes in contact with. For the price of the product, I would hope that the case would be a little more durable. It should not break only after 2 uses.
