Stila’s palettes are some of my favorites around because they always have a ton of great shades in them and they’re never outrageously priced. You know how sometimes you see a makeup product on the shelves and get all excited and then see how much it’s going to cost and realize that it’s not coming home with you? That almost never happens to me with Stila and it makes me like them even more. I’ve been playing around with their In The Garden Palette for awhile now and I’m loving it as much as the similar In The Light Palette that I bought months ago and have used a ton. It’s the same style palette, just with different shades, and while the In The Light Palette leaned towards neutral shades, In The Garden has a few neutrals accented with bold shades that give you a bright pop of color when you use them.
Juniper is probably my favorite shade in the palette. It’s a deep, shimmery forest green and it’s just super pretty. It’s perfect for a twist on the classic smoky eye using green instead of black or grey. I also really like the other green shade, Moss, because it’s a lighter olive green with shimmer so it’s more work appropriate. There’s also a very pretty deep violet-blue called Freesia that I really like because it makes my green eyes pop when I use it. The great thing about the palette is that you can use the lighter neutral shades to accent the brighter ones or to tone them down if you’d like, so it’s really a great palette to travel with since it gives you so many options. (I actually have both In The Garden and In The Light with me on a trip at the moment. I just couldn’t leave them behind!) Both palettes retail for only $39, which is a great price for ten different shades. Pick one (or both!) of them up for yourself – you won’t regret it!
