There’s nothing quite like that feeling you get when you dive into a new palette, am I right? I recently received the Stila Matte ‘N Metal Eye Shadow Palette and couldn’t wait to get into it.

I’m a big fan of combining matte and shimmery shades in an eye look, so this palette instantly gave me a good feeling. It’s also a really nice all-encompassing palette with more neutral shades that cover a range of shadows; cool pewters, warm rosy shades and sunny bronze hues all fit together into this 12 shade palette, allowing for you to mix and match depending on your mood.

The top two rows of shadows are all matte, while the bottom two rows have a shimmery finish. The matte shadows apply really smoothly, though I was a little disappointed with the shades in the top row; they didn’t have very much pigmentation and didn’t show up very well on my skin, either wet or dry (as you’ll see in the following swatches). The second row did have a lot more colour to it, and these shadows make for a great base shade. The shimmery shades areĀ so rich and pigmented that I don’t really mind all that much. They look gorgeous on, and when applied wet, the colour is so metallic and bold that it’s hard to look away.

The palettes were also designed to make creating an eye look really simple. Follow the columns for a set of four shadows that come together for a harmonious look, and adjust intensity as you see fit. The bottom shades also make a great liner with a ton of impact, especially when applied wet!
