Stila in the Moment Eye Shadow Palette (Swatches)

You might remember from a previous post (click here) that I bought my best friend Stila In the Moment eye shadow palette for her birthday.  Being an unofficial Stila Ambassador I couldn't let a palette be available without me owning it (lets call it OCS... Obsessive Compulsive Stila).  As I have said before I love Stila's eye shadows; they really are wonderful.  You can use them wet or dry, in fact you can use them dry then put some wet shadow on top and then apply more dry shadow and the shadows work amazingly.

In the Moment palette follows a similar layout to the In the Light and In the Garden palettes with 10 (buttery soft) shadows and an exclusive Smudge Stick Eye Liner (this one is Tetra which is a shimmery purple).


  • Instinct - light baby pink with pink & white shimmer
  • Desire - soft, creamy mid-tone pink
  • Impulse - pale lavender with lavender shimmer
  • Wonder - mid-tone flesh pink with shimmer
  • Glance - intense violet with shimmer
  • Spontaneous - soft beige-gold with shimmer
  • Improvise - deep plum with pink sparkle
  • Whim - soft warm reddish-brown with shimmer
  • Catalyst - black with pink sparkle
  • Captivate - mid-tone purple-brown with golden pearl



  • I have decided that I need to show you how amazing the colours are when wet so below will be the top row of shadows in the palette .  In the picture underneath you will see the row of shadows swatched dry and underneath wet swatches (very scientifically done by wetting my finger with a wet wipe).



    The shades are just so pretty and as you can see when dry the shadows are very pigmented but to use them damp just intensifies the colour.

    Again I will show the row of shadows followed by a row of dry swatches and a row of wet swatches.




    One of my favourite colours is Glance - it is simply stunning and such a vibrant shade.


    Don't forget that you also get the smudge stick in the exclusive shade Tetra which is a beautiful dusky purple with a shimmer.


    Stila - In the Moment palette costs £25.00 and is available from Stila.co.uk (click here) they have free UK and Ireland shipping.
