Stila – In the Light

One of my most used eye shadow palettes for the last 2 years would definitely be the “In the Light” palette by Stila, so when I recently heard that this product had been discontinued I had to find out why they would do such a thing!

I did some investigating online and came to the conclusion that the “Eyes are the window” palette in “Soul” is basically a new and improved version of the “In the Light” palette, which is great news for anyone who knows and loves this palette or was considering purchasing it.

I thought it would be helpful for anyone interested in this palette to see some swatches and a comparison between the two palettes.

The pigmentation of the shimmery shades in these palettes are great, especially the shade “Kitten”! It is definitely my favourite shade from the palettes as it’s a beautiful champagne colour and is very highly pigmented. It’s just as pigmented, if not more pigmented than some of the pressed pigments that I have in my collection.
