A little treat

Stila in the light palette

Stila in the light shadows

So Wednesday night I had some bad news, my Nana who's 91 was in hospital and very very poorly, I won't go into detail, but things weren't looking good.  So when Thursday came, I went into work and choked back worried tears all day and tried hard not to think about it (she lives in Ireland, I'm in Wales, not exactly practical to pop to the Hospital to visit).  Lunchtime came and I went out for some fresh air, I found myself in Boots and staring at the Stila 'In the light' palette, one I've been lusting after for about a year now.  I didn't actually realise what a good price it is (£25) compared to the Naked palette, so I decided to pick it up as a little treat to cheer myself up.

That evening I had some good news, my Nana was getting better, she was out of ITU and the Drs think she might be able to come home early next week (whoop!), that really was a load of stress off my shoulders, so so thankful that she's on the mend, especially as she's my last grandparent I have alive, and we'll be spending Christmas with her in Ireland (fingers crossed).

Anyway, this isn't a full review or anything as I've only used it twice so far, but my first impressions are great.  I've heard SO MUCH about the shade Kitten so that was the first to go on my lid (very pretty colour, and very similar to UD Sin, but with a little less pink/champagne colour in it).  I've also used it to highlight my lid, what I mean by that is I use the MUA matte palette on the lid (Chino all over the lid, Truffle in the crease) to create a bit of a smokey look, then use a shimmery colour like Stila Sunset on the bottom part of the lid where Chino was sitting to create a bit of a sparkle - you could use this as a day to night look too, just by adding some of the Stila palette over the top to create something a little different.  I must say, the two palettes go together beautifully.

Anyway, this was just a quick post to show you what I treated myself to this week, I'll be doing a full review of it on the coming weeks so keep your eyes peeled for that :)

    I hope your nan is feeling better lovely. I know exactly how you felt. My family stays in Poland and every time something happens to my nan, I feel horrible about being so far away and not being able to visit her in the hospital :(
