Stila Matte 'n Metal Eyeshadow Palette: Review and Swatches
With the release of the much-raved Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow, Stila has definitely been upping its game this spring! In addition to the beloved glitter shadows, the brand is also releasing a 12-shade, luxurious neutrals palette called the Matte 'n Metal Eyeshadow Palette ($64 CAD).

Formulation:
In the Matte 'n Metal Eyeshadow Palette, you get six matte shades and six shimmer/metallics. I haven't had a lot of experience with Stila eyeshadows before but I am pretty impressed with the quality here. All six mattes have a soft and creamy texture while providing a decent amount of pigmentation. The shimmers have an even creamier formulation and the pigmentation is top-notch. I also really like the overall color scheme; you get your everyday neutrals but you also get a few stunning yet sophisticated bold metallics. See below for a breakdown of all 12 shades.
