Stila Charmed Eye Shadow Palette Review & Swatches

June 19, 2009
Stila Charmed Eyeshadow Palette ($10!!!)
Stila Charmed Eye Shadow Palette with 24 Karat Gold features four highly pigmented shadow shades—all infused with genuine 24kt gold. Long revered for its skin-revitalizing properties, this luxurious metal helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and creates a rich, shimmering effect. Create countless looks with these silky-smooth, wet-to-dry shimmer shadows.

Did anybody else stop by Sephora last night to take advantage of the $10 Stila Charmed Eyeshadow Palette going on? These aren’t the types of shades I’d usually go for, but I just couldn’t resist the cute packaging and the great price.

The Charmed Eye Shadow Palette consists of four velvety smooth, almost creamy feeling eyeshadows that are infused with 24K gold (they’re very similar to the shadows in the Precious Pearl Eyeshadow Palette which I reviewed HERE). They’re intense, pigmented, pack just the right amount of shimmer and glide on smoothly. The palette includes a deep pinky bronze, and bronze/gold, a deep shimmery turquoise and a plum black. I was expecting to love the deep purplely shade but sadly it’s my least favorite as it looks a little flat in person. It needs a little more shimmer or just maybe some more purple to give it an extra oomph.

I haven’t had a chance yet to put together an EOTD, but once I do I’ll be sure to post if it’s halfway decent. What do you think of this palette? Was it worth the $10?
