I’m back with another neutral eyeshadow from Stila…Previously I’d reviewed Rain which is a dark greyish-brown. Today I’ll be reviewing another shade from the same range called Eden.

My take on Stila Eyeshadow in Eden:
- Color: On first sight, I thought this looked a lot like MAC Moleskin. But this is waaaay different. This is a light neutral brown which provides more of a wash across the lid. Where Moleskin took on a Pink hue on my lids, Eden has more of a peachy tinge to it.
- Quantity: 2.6gms
- Pigmentation & Texture: The pigmentation is just as great as Rain. A single swipe is sufficient. This is also a matte shade and light on application.
- Staying Power: This stays on my lids for about 5hrs or so…
I like this shade as an all-over lid color since my lids are a bit pigmented and I need to neutralize this prior to doing my eyes. But I’ll be honest…I still prefer a satin finish eyeshadow like MAC Arena but this still does a good job. I use it to soften the edges on the crease as well so it’s pretty multi-functional that way like Moleskin. It’s not at all powdery and the color on the lids is exactly the same as what’s in the pan…
As I mention in the review for Rain, I’m not too fond of the tin foil like packaging. I mean, it’s functional but it’s not too pretty to look at…but I don’t worry too much about this because I’m anyways going to depot this and pop it into my Z-Palette..Plus, the cheaper packaging also is the reason why the product itself is so wallet-friendly so considering that I don’t think we should complain much right?
