Stila “In the Garden” Palette; Review and Tutorial

Hi guys, today’s blogpost is going to be a review of Stila’s “In the Garden” eyeshadow palette accompanied by a tutorial on this eye look I have created.
  • Shades that all harmonise
  • Addition of an eyeliner
  • All shimmery (could be a negative in some people’s books)
  • Cheap flimsy packaging for an expensive palette
  • Not a versatile colour range
  • Not super pigmented
Overall I really like this palette, however, I don’t think I would have paid the full price of £25. I picked this up in TX Max for around the £7/£8 region which I think is an absolute bargain! The green colours really compliment my green eyes but I do think the royal blue and purple look slightly out of place in this palette no matter how pretty they are. They aren’t very pigmented compared to the likes of the naked palettes but they do blend really easily which is a sacrifice I’m willing to make as you can definitely build the colour up.


1) After priming my eyelids with the Mac painterly pro longwear paint pot, I set this with “chinois”, a flesh coloured shadow

2) Next I took “breeze” all over the lid and softened the edges by blending them

3) Then I took “juniper” in my outer v blending into my crease and socket

4) After that I applied “bark” focusing on the centre of my lid

5) Next I took “honey” on the inner lid and blended the whole look to make it seamless

6) As usual I applied a winged liner with my Maybelline master preciser liquid eyeliner followed by two coats of Benefit’s roller lash mascara

7) Furthermore, I took “juniper” on the outer part of the lash line, followed by a mixture of “honey” and “bark” in the centre then lastly I took “breeze” in the inner part of the lower lash line.

8) Next I took the liner “starfish” from the palette on the outer lash line and outer water line followed by a Rimmel white eyeliner on the inner waterline (couldn’t find it online so linked something similar).

9) Finally I applied “chinois” in the inner corner and under the brow bone as a subtle highlight
