Beauty Bargain Purchase: Stila Eyeshadow Quad in Marrakesh

Recently, at Clothes Show London I picked up this pretty little palette from a stall for just £5! This quad is called Marrakesh and has a mixture of neutral brown and beige slightly shimmery tones:


The official description says there’s a Rose, Gold, Bronze and Brown in this quad – all very wearable and safe. So safe that I nearly skipped the palette but at £5 – I figured I could give it away if I decided I didn’t want it later.


Every since Stila has been discontinued in the UK (apart from some places like there have been loads of bargains from the range floating about! This is just one of them.



Pigmentation is good, the colours are soft, slightly shimmery and interesting. I wish there was a mid tone colour though, and not just three light and shimmer ones.

Nevertheless I think it’s a good buy?

What do you think? Bargain or Dust Gatherer? (my Mother in law* uses this phrase)

*Not actual mother in law, people keep asking me when I got married when I say things like this, or when I had kids when I refer to my cats as “the kids”. Current status, not married, no kids. When this happens, I’ll make sure you get an invite!
