When I posted my Project Make a Dent Lipgloss Update, I mentioned that I would consider tackling eyeshadows next. A tall order. For those of you who don’t know what Project Make a Dent is, please feel free to check out my original post. Basically, rather then set myself the sometimes unrealistic goal of finishing a product in its entirety, with #projectmakeadent I basically try to make myself conscience of reaching for products that haven’t been used in a while. My next project: the Stila in the Light Eyeshadow Palette.
Eye shadows are a somewhat difficult makeup item to actually finish. When you are a makeup lover like me, it’s probably fair to say you have quite a few palettes and single shadows. You don’t (usually) need to use much for an eye look, even if you’re using it everyday. So it takes some doing to get through a single shadow, let alone a palette.
The *Stila in the Light eyeshadow palette was one of my first palettes containing more than four shadows. I’ve had it for just under three years. Now, I’ve mentioned this before but as you know that there are these “rules” for makeup expiration (I think eye shadows are two-three years, depending on your source) but I also know plenty of people who keep their makeup for many years without issue. I regular sanitize my products as well. Anyway, despite this, I probably won’t keep this past year end. But before it goes, I want to get some more use out of it as I think it is an absolutely fantastic, neutral palette. As you can see, it has been well loved over the years. Some of the shadows (Kitten and Bubbly) are completely gone and others are on their way out (Bare and Bliss). By the way, the Black in in here (Ebony) is a really good one.
Do you own the Stila in the Light eyeshadow palette? What is your favorite, go-to neutral palette?
