Wanna Know About Stila In The Know Eyeshadow Palette? (Review,Photos)

$39, sephora, stila, macy’s

so what else will you tell ms. know-it-all about stila in the know when you know that this palette is nothing but 

  • 10 matte eyeshadows with predominantly brown shades in varying intensities
  • has shades that overlap when swatched and applied
  • packaged with charcoal gray smudge stick eye liner
  • has credit-card sized lookbook for inspirations

now that you know what i know, there are two reasons you will like this palette




{ description from stila’s website }

air- matte beige

wind- soft matte peach

desert- soft matte tan with warm undertone

clay- matte warm light brown

earth- deep matte chocolate brown

driftwood- mid tone brown

fire- matte brick

rain- matte brown

smoke- matte charcoal gray

ebony- matte black

the eyeshadows are soft and powdery, moderately pigmented and obviously neutral. some shades overlap i.e air and wind, desert and clay. fire is the most intense, my favorite from this palette. used with  an eye primer, they don’t smudge or crease.

the big winner from this set is the charcoal gray smudge stick a.k.a halfmoon. it’s creamy, glides smoothly and lasts throughout the day.



the quote on top of the mirror  is pretty smart. “when a woman knows, she knows” – sarah lucero. simply put, trust your gut woman. when there’s smoke, there’s fire. 

top photos in neutral mode; bottom in fiery mood. 


overall, it’s a nice palette to have if you don’t own any matte neutrals yet.


*i bought this. i intentionally didn’t use caps today, just because 🙂 *

    I saw this palette in Ulta but didn't purchase it. Now that I see your beautiful photos and swatches, I'm thinking I need to go back and purchase it. The fire looks super. I don't have a color like that at all.

      Thanks much! Lucky you have Ulta, I wish we have one here so I have other place to go other than Sephora 🙂

    This looks like a decent palette! Great for neutralizing shimmery and colorful shades:)
