The Stila Palette, Smoky Eye has always been popular. Now it talks too. I picked one up, and while I love the eye shadow, I could do without the talking part.
the first thing I noticed with the talking smoky eye palette was that it was rather thick. I suppose this is to accommodate the speaker mechanism. The lid has a button to push to receive instructions on using the palette to create a smoky eye. The sound is a bit scratchy, but instructions are useful and accurate. However, I’m not sure they really are all that necessary. Are people really going to play them over and over?
The shadow itself, shown with swatches above, is divine. Stila makes wonderful finely milled shadows and they chose the best selection of shades for their smoky eye palettes. I wear just the lighter shades for a day look and then can easily convert to a classic smoky eye evening look with a few additions. The slightly blue tint to the light gray shade really brightens the eyes. The result is a compact that is a staple in my makeup wardrobe.
