FOTD: Stila In The Light + Full Review

Good morning and a happy Sunday to you all! Weekends are just too short aren't they? If you saw my post last week about my first Stila palette purchase, you'll know that the first delivery arrived broken (boo!). Since then, the non-broken one has arrived in all its glory, and I just couldn't resist doing a FOTD with it! So without further ado, here's a little neutral nudey look I created on my eyeballs...




Base: 
LUSH Gorgeous moisturiser
Benefit That Gal brightening primer
MAC Matchmaster foundation in 1.5
MAC Pro Longwear concealer in NW20 
L'Oreal True Match powder in Rose Ivory 
Sleek Contour Palette (bronzer + blusher) in Light
Benefit High Beam highlighter

Eyes:
Benefit Brows A Go-Go (light powder)
Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in Medium Brown
Urban Decay primer potion
Stila In The Light 'Bare' (all over lid as a base colour)
Stila In The Light 'Bliss' (transition colour)
Stila In The Light 'Gilded Gold' (outer corner and crease)
Stila In The Light 'Luster' the teensiest bit in the outer corner)
Stila In The Light 'Kitten' (brow and inner corner)
Stila In The Light 'Bubbly' (remaining lid space)
Rimmel Scandaleyes gel eyeliner in Black
Rimmel Wonder-full argan oil mascara
Random natural lashes from eBay 

Lips:
LUSH None of Your Beeswax lip balm
e.l.f. Mineral Lipstick in Runway Pink
Lipcote 


If you'd like to see a full tutorial on this look, please let me know! The palette itself is nothing less than gorgeous. I'm not sure where to categorise it, as at £25 it's definitely not the cheapest of the bunch, but it won't break the bank as much as say, a £38 Naked palette. 

The shadows themselves are wonderfully creamy and pigmented, and not at all chalky - although not as highly pigmented as Urban Decay's Naked offerings. I kind of prefer that though, of course I'm no expert and I made my fair share of eyeshadow mistakes, but they were easier to correct because the colour hadn't gone on so harshly first time. They're still easily bendable and buildable, and a massive win with me!

Tomorrow I will be embarking on my very first drive along the motorway EVER, on a little adventure to Thorpe Park with the boyfriend (your little adrenaline junkie over here is very very excited!). I managed to pass my driving test with no minors just under a year ago now, but I'm still pooing myself a bit thinking about my first trip down the M25! I'll be wearing a toned down version of this makeup look throughout the day so I'll really be testing the longevity of the shadows as well as everything else. Hopefully it won't all end up on the back of my head after going on Stealth etc etc haha. 

And finally, as I'm an absolute idiot when it comes to posing for photos, here are a few little gems that came out on timer as I got fully engrossed in the music that was playing at the time. Vogue, call me now. I'm waiting. 


Let me know if you've tried this beautiful palette before, or if you'd like to see a full tutorial on this look! 

Big love, 
xx
