My 1st Stila Single Eye Shadow: La Douce

I had never purchased anything from Stila before until the brand decided to pull back from Malaysia few years ago. Feeling amiss, I regretted for not venturing more into this brand when I managed to snag Stila Sheer Pressed Powder. Luckily though, Sephora brought Stila back, but it was only recently that I made time to drop by at Stila for swatches. I came home with this single eye shadow, La Douce.

The tiny gold shimmer took my breath away at first sight!

This golden olive green has beautiful shimmer, and I can totally see myself using this alone as an eye shadow or an eye liner. What amazes me was how pigmented at first swipe using my fingers, and it gives me a smooth, satin-y texture. The gold and the olive are just so beautiful together. This eye shadow can be used wet or dry, and for RM60 a pop, I find this really affordable.

This single compact that carries the eye colour is refillable, and I could also pop out this eye shadow and add to my favourite refillable compact. I like the idea where I could recycle this compact by removing the pan and magnet, too.

I love the price and the colour; why didn’t I check it out earlier? I am now actually planning to get more from Stila. Do you have any single eye shadows from Stila that you like? Which Stila product should I try next?

With love,
