Stila Smudge Pot in Kitten



Today I am going to make a review on Stila's Smudge Pot in Kitten. I got these from the Stila Smudge Pot Holiday Collection thanks to my boyfriend and Carla =)

I'm not sure how much this costs because this is an early Christmas gift from my boyfriend but I do know that this mini Smudge pot is 2 grams. I know it seems so small but trust me I cannot finish a whole jar of this miniature Smudge Pot.

Why?

Because it is very pigmented and I just need a little to cover my lids.

What Stila says:
The verdict is in, and smudge pots take the prize for sexy eyes!
This unique gel eyeliner and shadow is an innovative alternative to traditional powder and liquid formulas. This clever little gel has an inky intensity that leaves powder shadows in the dust. A favorite for the sultry, smoky eye.
Apply with a liner brush for razor-sharp precision or smudge it with your fingers for more complete coverage. Remember to always close the airtight lid to keep the gel soft and pliable.

Stila describes their award winning shade Kitten as shimmering nude pink

My Review:
As you can see on the photo above, in case you are in the Philippines and you are wondering how big (or small) the mini smudge pot is, take a Php10.00 coin and place it in your palm and it's almost the same size with the mini smudge pot.

Packaging wise Stila could improve with the cap by making it thicker and coat it with ceramic to help prevent the smudge pot from drying out.


Kitten Smudge Pot Swatch

I usually use the Kitten Smudge Pot as an eye shadow than an eyeliner because the shade itself would not create a defined look.

I tried using an eyeshadow brush for this one and it is not such a good idea to use a natural bristles haha! I knew it from the beginning that cream eye shadows are best used with synthetic bristles because it does not absorb the cream based product. The next time I used this, I used my ring finger. I dipped my finger in alcohol first to disinfect and to help preserve the Smudge Pot because bacteria helps spoil make-up products.

Using your ring finger works well and the finish looks so polished as you can see on the picture. The left side is when I just dipped my finger on the pot and the right side is the more polished and evenly spread out swatch.

The consistency is great on your lids as long as you apply this evenly and it lasts quite a long time. It does not budge a bit but my only qualm is the glitter or shimmer transferring on your face.

I like to use this as a highlighter on the brow area to define my brow bone; I tried applying this all over my lid and it washed out my eyelids making it look flat but when I use this to highlight my brow area it works very well and fantastic! It looks so perfect with the way the light hits on my brow bone.

Tip:
Try to use an eye shadow potion, I use my Urban Decay Primer Potion and the color comes out more vibrant than the one in the photo.
