I have had an obsession with matte shadows ever since I ordered my Meet Matt(e) Nude palette from Birchbox last year. I love how they look on my eyes, I love how they stay, and I love how they blend. So when I saw this palette from Stila, featuring 10 all matte shadows, it immediately went in my cart on Birchbox.com!
The In the Know palette came with 10 shadows, a Stila smudge stick in Halfmoon, and a lookbook with different styles to try out. I love the smudge stick, because it is definitely waterproof, and lasts all day! The lookbook is great because I like to see how other people put the colors together.
These shadows are a warm tone with rich browns, a firery orange, and warm rose tones. They all have a desert theme with the names.
Air: Off white in color
Wind: Nude-y beige
Desert: Peachy nude
Clay: Pink nude
Earth: Rick dark brown
Driftwood: Warm brown
Smoke: Cool grey
Ebony: Matte black
These shadows blend beautifully, and I love that these are a bit warmer. I like that some of them are close to my skin tone because I tend to like a light lid with a darker crease. I also like that I can use this in conjunction with my Meet Matt(e) Nude palette.
I like matte shadows for every day use because it looks professional and put together. I save my metallics for nights out or special occasions. This palette is great for fall, and I absolutely cannot wait to use Fire! It seriously looks like the orange leaves in the Fall season.
You can buy this palette from Stila or Birchbox!
