Stila in the Garden | Review

I love TK Max at the best of times but my love grows when I find discount makeup! For instance a week ago I found that my local TK Max had started stocking Stila, and I have always wanted to try it out. I took this as my opportunity. I found this Stila 'In the Garden' palette for just £11that retails for £25, yes £25 but it was in amazing condition and so I scooped it into my shopping basket. I have always heard so much abut the Stila eye shadows and their formulation so I was desperate to try it out.

This palette is a mixture of beautiful shades, that transition for warm to cool tones. The greens and golden browns in this palette make it a perfect one for autumn and all eye shades. With this palette you can create looks that resemble the autumn leaves, what's not to love? Admittedly, I thought the greens would be a shade to steer clear of. Colour on my eyes throws me back to the age of 10 when I rocked a blue eye shadow look, just me? But these green shades are a perfect way to add a subtle hint of colour to your usual eye look. The good things I had heard about these shadows didn't let me down, they are gorgeously pigmented and creamy. Because of how creamy they are the blend beautifully, creating a effortless green smokey eye or neutral natural look. The options with this palette are endless and their are options for everyone. Whether you like colour on your eyes or are most of a neutral girl.

My favourite shades from the palette I have been wearing as my everyday look (expect a makeup monthly soon) are; 'Sage', a gorgeous pale khaki; 'Breeze', a perfect champagne; 'Bark', a cool taupe shade and 'Honey' which is that perfect gold shade.

Admittedly there are shades in this palette like any I feel I will never come to use, no matter their beauty I may have a slight phobia of dark eye colours, feeling I may end up like a clown. Green may be a subtle colour, but the blue shade 'Fressia' and 'Rosette' I feel I may never have a use for though beautiful they are.

So in conclusion if there are some makeup items on your wishlist that are slightly out of your price range then pop into your local Tk Maxx or discount store, because sometimes you can find some little gems.
