Stila 'Kitten' Eyeshadow - Review

Stila 'Kitten' is one of the best selling eyeshadows in make up history. It's incredibly unique not only with the colour but also with the texture also. The unique blend of pigments leaves an incredibly soft, almost liquid-like, texture. Many brands, including Stila, have attempted to recreate the texture with no such luck. It's by far the softest eyeshadow I have ever come across, in fact you can see that mine has shattered a little at the bottom, this was from dropping it about 30cm onto carpet. It's that soft.

Kitten is a shimmering champagne colour with extreme pigmentation, it's multi dimensional and has an incredibly reflection when light hits it.

The only downside with this eyeshadow is that because it is so soft it doesn't have a huge amount of staying power when worn on its own. Without a primer, the shadow will start to fade out after about four hours, however with a primer it will last all day.

I love wearing Kitten on it's own or layered over cream shadows, I often blend a cream shadow (like MACs Constructivist Paint Pot) all over the lid and into the crease, then apply Kitten over the eyelid. It's also a great highlight for the inner corner of your eye or under the brow bone.

You can find it at Mecca in Australia for $29 (or from Sephora in the US for $18)
The eyeshadow is pretty large, coming in at 2.6g
