I am always buying makeup for my kit and not for myself so I decided to treat myself with this palette. We all know I am in love with the Urban Decay Naked Palettes so I thought I would give this Stila one a shot.

Well, it has Kitten in it, I LOVE Kitten, it is my favorite Stila eyeshadow of all time. Nearly anyone can pull this color off.

Bare-nice matte highlighter – nothing special, can buy this from any line
Kitten – LOVE
Bliss- I can do without, not many people can pull of this color, it made me look sleepy
Sunset – way too orange for my taste, I need a tan to pull this off and I am anti-sun
Sandstone-great brow color and rich dark brown
Bubbly – LOVE bubbly, a lot like Kitten with more gold undertones, great summer color
Gilded Gold – looks awesome in the pan doesn’t it? put it on and its a BIG FAIL, you can even tell in the swatch I did – bleh
Luster – another big fail, looked great in the pain and no color payoff
Night Sky – not a fan
Ebony – nice rich black

So all in all, not a great buy. I like a few colors. Wish they sold Bubbly on its own and Kitten is always available in a pan. Don’t waste your money on this one. Just buy Kitten and save a few bucks. The fallout of the shadows is also disappointing – I like the shadow on top of my lid, not under it, I already have enough issues with smudging mascara!
