Stila The Natural Palette: Review and Swatches

 Stila has been one of my favorites for eyeshadow palettes since I can remember. My first big eyeshadow palette was the Stila In the Garden which is wonderful. This is one of Stila's three nude color collections, and it was the one I thought looked the nicest since the others had colors that were a little too dark for my liking.
This palette is an Ulta exclusive and is only $20 which for me is a steal. To see my full review, click......

The set comes with six shadows, a highlighter and a bronzer. The eye shadow colors in The Natural Palette are on the cooler pink side and would look lovely on anybody. The highlighter is quite shimmery so I have to apply it quite carefully and I find the bronzer a bit too orange for my skin.
The shimmer shadows have great color payoff, whereas the more matte shadows don't always appear on the lid as well. However, I overcome this by wearing Maybelline's Bad to the Bronze color tattoo underneath, it brings out all the colors and increases the staying powder of any shadow. I like the look that the palette gives you in the packaging, but these colors all work so well together it is really easy to play around with and create your own look.
Although some of the colors don't show up as well, I have found my way around it and use these colors almost every day. I think that this palette is a fabulous addition to my collection, I find I don't have anything similar to these colors. I also think that Stila brings a nice mix to their smaller palettes for a fairly affordable price.

Do you have any shadows that you can not stop using?
