Despite owning a rather sizeable stash of eyeshadow, when push comes to the shove i'm pretty clueless when it comes to application. Since purchasing both Urban Decay Palettes (although the second one has major gone unloved - due to guilt of not nearly using the first as much as i should have) i've definitely become more adventurous in using more than one shade, hello definition in the crease! How very technical of me. However most of the time i result to a quick wash of colour on the lids, add a little liner into the mix, with lashings of mascara and we are good to go. One shade i've come to religiously love and use is the infamous cult beauty buy: Kitten by Stila, and its golden sister Oasis.
Oasis & Kitten - Boots (£12.00 each)
Stila, the all American beauty brand once graced our English shores a few years backs where it was quite a hit, but since fading out it came back with a vengeance just before Christmas. I pondered into Boots in awe of the very famous Kitten, to see quite frankly what the fuss was all about. Constantly raved about, this shimmery champagne shade is a winner with all skin tones, with a hint of warm pink its become that standard neutral shade, worthy of a spot in any girl's make up bag. I accidentally purchased Oasis, how similar do they look in pan format? On closer inspection at home i realised that Oasis is a beautiful gold toned shadow. Both shadows are incredibly pigmented, its texture is pretty much unbeatable. I find Mac eyeshadows to be quite hard in the pan, Urban Dacay's shadows are soft and easy to pick up, yet with bad fall out. Stila, however is that of butter, so soft to the touch and one swipe of a brush it easily picks up enough product.
I definitely recommend giving these a swatch when your next in Boots, i cannot wait to try out the Stila brand further!
Have you ever tried Stila, any reccs?
