Cult Favorite - Stila Kitten

Wednesday, January 29, 2014

Stila Kitten is one of those shades that people mention all the time. It's great, it really is. A pinky champagne in color with incredible pigmentation, creamy texture but also crazy sparkly/frosty and prone to fallout all over neighboring pans.

I've had my pan for close to three, perhaps four years now. Look, pan! Did I actually use up an eyeshadow? No, I tripped and broke it about two years back, but have managed to finish a good portion of the remainder.

Left: bare skin. Right: over primer.

I think the reason why this shade is so popular is because as a sheer wash, it really instantly brightens the eye area. Unfortunately, it can look harsh on eyelids that aren't perfectly smooth as it really drawers attention to wrinkles and textured skin.

My favorite way of wearing it, as pictured above, is with a bit of matte color in the crease so as to not overwhelm the eye with frost.
