Stila Smoky Palettes
You may recall me mentioning that the Stila site had undergone some construction and soon after it returned they had a little sale with 20% off (which is ongoing until the 21st of this month)!
At the time nothing of too much interest was wowing me from the site but I did happen upon the new smoky palettes and decided I might as well snatch them up with the discount.
Stila's Smoky Eye Palettes
I had already purchased the original smoky eye palette some months ago and was pretty pleased with it so I dove in and purchased the two newest colors.
I'm going to say you don't need these unless you wanna splurge a little. There isn't anything to wow you about the palettes and you don't need to rush off and purchase them right away (wait for the Stila Warehouse Sale).
The pro side of the purchase is that the shadows are very pigmented and the liner cakes these come with are quite good however you really don't absolutely have to have these.
I'm just diseased thus they ended up in my stash of cosmetics ;)
I do give them a good solid review because Stila makes some very good shadows and you get quite a nice palette for the price! With the discount I only paid $32 a palette.
If you're a minimal girl or you don't like alot of nonsense when it comes to your eye makeup these are perfect. They do exactly what they promise to do which is create an elegant smoky eye look that's perfect for the day or evening.
These are also pretty darn nice if you have a difficult time achieving a smokey eye look. They also happen to have a little button you can press that allows you to listen to a tutorial recording giving you step by step instructions on how to apply the shadows.
Pretty nifty eh?

L@@K The Muse was even thoughtful enough to make you a video to show you how the talking tutorial works!
Overall these are a nice edition to any collection and they make eyeshadow application a snap on the days that applying makeup seems too much of an ordeal!
