The Palette With Two Names: Stila NaturalEyes (or In The Light) Eye Shadow Palette

The mystery of the palette with two names. My palette (purchased at Ulta) says NaturalEyes Eye Shadow Palette, yet it is listed on the Stila and Sephora websites as In the Light Palette. They are exactly the same palette, so this is bound to cause confusion. Nonetheless, I have been testing this palette for a month now and have come to the conclusions that...it is just okay. Let's

Let's stare with the good things. 

This was absolutely an impulse buy that I thought I was going to adore. I think the colour selection and range is amazing; all the colours can be paired together for any look so the possibilities are endless. 
(Bare, Kitten, Bliss, Sunset, Sandstone, Gilded Gold, Luster, Night Sky, Ebony)

Now for the bad.

I really should have swatched all the shadows before buying this. Impulse buys should not be uninformed buys. The metallic and shimmer shades are twice as pigmented than the matte shades. At first, I thought the soft texture was amazing, but as soon as you stick a brush into the bright colours, they start to break apart and crumble. This equals a fallout and smudging during application. The finish and payoff is really lovely, but you need to be patient and apply your base after you do your eyes. 

And because I hate ending on a low, note...
The hero of this whole kit is the Smudgeproof Eyeliner in Damsel. WOW. Now I want the whole range of these liners. It do not move all day! It applied so smoothly and opaque from the first swipe. The ultimate in control and precision for a pencil liner. 

Grade: B-

I was ogling this at Sephora. Glad to know it's not worth the money!
