This week I was on the hunt for a good quality eye shadow palette that I could use for my grad (debs/prom) as I will be doing my own make up, Originally I wanted to purchase the In The Light palette mainly because it contained Kitten which is a very popular eye shadow and highlight shade by Stila, but they were sold out. It took me a while to make a decision between the in the garden , in the know and in the moment palettes. In the end I went with the In the moment because in my opinion it is the closest to the in the light palette shade wise. This palette was €27, which is my opinion is a brilliant price for a palette from such a popular brand.
This palette comes in a lilac cardboard packaging which is the only thing I dislike about this palette because it feels very cheap for the price. Initially when you take the palette out of the packaging there is a little look book which contains 6 looks and instructions on how to re-create them, I really like this feature to the palette because I think for beginners starting out it is really helpful.
This palette also includes a full size Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner in the shade “Tetra” which is a deep purple shade with silver glitter in it. Also instead of a mirror on the top of this palette there is a lovely quote from Stila’s Global Director of Education Sarah Lucreo which reads “Cherish the beauty of the moment”
Now onto the shades , This palette contains 10 eye shadows with one matte and the rest a mix of shimmer, satin, and frosty shades, all eye shadows can be used wet or dry. The top row of shadows is mainly purple shades from light to dark with one neutral pinky shade which is my favourite shade from this palette. The top row of shadows contain Instinct which is a frosty pinky cream shade, Impulse which is a frosty pale lilac , Glance which is a rich medium toned purple with a satin finish , Improvise which is a plum shade with chunks of purple glitter in it, and Catalyst which is a deep black with purple glitter.
The Bottom row of eye shadows is all neutral shades which are Desire which is a matte pale peach shade that is not as pigmented as the others , Wonder which is pinkish tan shade with a satin finish , Spontaneous which is a shimmery copper shade , Whim which is a warm shimmery brown which again is not as pigmented as the others , and Captivate which is frosty brown with metallic glitter in it. My favourite shades from this palette are definitely Instinct ,spontaneous ,whim and captivate.
Overall I really love this palette and I am very happy I purchased it , I have found the look I think is the pefrect graduation/prom/debs look and I will leave some pictures below and I will have a video up on my YouTube of that look Tomorrow so if you would like to check my channel out here is the link – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCC7sJatXOWIJ3mQnltdazNw.
