Stila Kitten Eyeshadow and Smudgepot

Stila Kitten is undoubtedly Stila's best-selling eyeshadow. It's so successful that they just had to make a smudgepot and a lip glaze version! I don't have the lip glaze but I have the smudgepot and the eyeshadow. I got the eyeshadow as part of a set. At first, I neglected it but now it's actually my favorite highlighter! And since I love Stila smudgepots I got myself one in the same shade too!

I don't have the container for the eyeshadow since you have to buy it separately, I think.

Here are the swatches. On top is the eyeshadow swatched once. Beneath it is the smudgepot, swatched twice.

As you can see, although they are similar in shade, they differ in terms of intensity (to think I already swatched the smudgepot twice). The eyeshadow can't work on me as an all-over lid color, it's just too light and obvious on my NC25 skin tone. This is really meant to be a highlighter. On the other hand, since the smudgepot is less intense, I can actually apply this all over my lid as an everyday color! It just gives the right amount of shimmer on my lids.

Here's the Kitten smudgepot on my lids:

The camera wasn't able to capture it properly, but it does give a little shimmer to brighten the eyes up. Perfect as an everyday all-over lid color! And the best part? Smudgepots are very crease-resistant, so even without an eye primer, they last around 5 hours without creasing! That's a long time for my very oily lids. With a primer, it stays crease-free even longer!

Have you tried Stila Kitten products? I'd like to know what you think!

I had the eyeshadow and while it looks gorgeous, I didn't really use it that much. But it as a nice everyday eyeshadow or highlighter as you mentioned. :)
