Stila Matte ‘N Metal Eye Shadow Palette

Disclaimer** The header image and the outside packaging  image  are taken from Stila’s website.

Things to note about this palette:

  • $49
  • twelve shadows
  • six matte shades
  •  six mega metallic shades
  • total net weight 0.42oz/ 12g

Onto the packaging! It’s stila signature gold packaging but with a twist! Checkered matte gold and shiny gold packaging. The palette features a magnetic closure and large mirror. The only thing that stinks is the fact that the names are on the back of the palette instead of with the colors. Front packaging as featured below.
