Stila The Natural
Another naked palette? Yes, indeed, but I rather like this one from Stila for being very wearable no matter what. I think it’s really for that transition stage where the sun has hit your skin a little bit but it’s not quite right for a full-on tan.
Three matte neutrals sit on the top row (thankfully with a bit of pigment that you can actually see) and three shimmering shades in deeper tones sit on the bottom row. While this hasn’t launched in the UK yet, I had a quick look on Ulta and there are two other palettes that I really don’t remember seeing before – Not So Nude and Dare to Bare which both look rather cute as well.
This isn’t my best swatch I have to say but I uploaded a video this morning and I swatched the Bobbi Brown Art Sticks – can I get them off my arm? No! So, I’ve hardly any arm to work with until I can sort that #bloggerproblem out! But, the bottom row shades are gorgeous – very soft in application with a beautiful sheen – all three colours would work for me but I’m a bit meh about the top row. So, top row is: Pure, Linen and Innocent, and bottom row is Element, Demure and Silk.
There’s also a highlighter and a bronzer, both of which are lovely – I’ll definitely use the bronzer because it’s warming without loads of shimmer and sheen. All in all, if you haven’t fallen for the naked trend yet, this one might change your mind. I don’t have either price or launch date (on Ulta it’s $20) but I’ll update when I do.
