Review: Stila In the Know Palette

Thursday, 9 January 2014


It seems as though shimmery shades are ubiquitous in every eyeshadow palette. It is harder to find a pure matte palette as only a couple come to mind, The Urban Decay Naked Basic, Too Faced Matte Eyeshadow Collection. Stila have one to offer, the In The Know palette and its a beaut. 

Stila In The Know Palette, priced around £25/€30 is the perfect palette for a matte, wearable shades. The packaging is a lovely blue colour that is perfect for travelling and looks lovely on my dresser. And with 10 lovely shades its really reasonably priced in my opinion.


The colours are all perfect neutrals that aim to suit any skin tone. As with some palettes, the shades can be quite polarizing, either being too cool or warm toned. This is a perfect mix of both which I love as colours such as air and smoke are cooler shades and desert and fire are on the warmer side. The looks that can be created are very versatile. Each of the eyeshadows are very easy to blend and are very pigmented. Within the palette, there is also a Smudge stick waterproof eyeliner in the shade Half Moon, a lovely grey eyeliner, which is also amazing.

I see no flaws with this palette. I'm gushing! Ever since I got it all other palettes have fallen to the side. I'm sure eventually I will want to reach for the sparkly shades but for now I'm rockin' the mattes and loving it. Any other pure matte palettes I should know about?
