Stila hit us up with a new It Girl Palette and gave it a really creative name too, “It Girl Palette #2″…a little sarcasm there.
Do you need It Girl Palette #2? Is it an amazing follow up to It Girl Palette #1?
Here’s the deal.
If you’re new to Stila and never tried the brand’s shadows before well It Girl Palette #2 is for you. Particularly if you’re a fond fan of nude and natural shades of color. The palette is dirt cheap at $14 and contains three shades that are very work friendly and elegant.
- Eve (Brown with Gold Flecks)
- Kitten (shimmering champagne nude pink)
- Americano (matte tawny nude)
You’re looking at 0.32 oz total eyeshadow here and 9 gram per shadow which translates to 2.55 g each of the regular size. But size isn’t an issue here because if you already own a ton of shadows there isn’t anyway you’ll hit pan here too soon.
Price is a reasonable $14 which is less than $5 per shade.
Moral of the story…
It works out to a great deal for those who haven’t tried Stila Eyeshadows and want to.
Experienced Stila girls…you’ll be disappointed.
The price has gone up from the original $10 to $14. I personally would have loved to keep the price point at $10 so you might be disappointed in this as well.
The shades all go well together however Eve is a disappointing boring matte if you aren’t a fan of the finish, raising my hand here, I’m not. And Kitten and Americano go well together but Americano’s formula isn’t as velvety as Kitten’s.
Stila shadows are normally very pigmented with a rich, buttery velvet formula that has sparkle to it but comes across very frosty as well. Kitten is the perfect example of the formula however Americano is a bit gritty and feels more like a liner shade than an actual all over color shadow. The formula feels semi-matte with bits of glitter thrown into the mix.
Granted, I do think the shades go well together but if you really had to lay it on the table here only Kitten is in tip top shape compared to the other two.
Speaking of Kitten….
Yes, it’s in there.
As an experienced Stila junkie I have about 150 shades of Kitten in most palettes I own and you probably do too….need I say more?
Overall, the Stila It Girl Palette #2 will prove a cute budget option for the budding, new Stila girls to check out and enjoy. However, for those familiar with the brand you might experience a twinge of disappointment.
The palette is available now at www.Sephora.com
