The Stila In The Know Eye Shadow Palette is an entirely matte 10 shadow palette. The palette is blue and made of durable cardboard.
The Stila In The Know palette is made up completely of matte shadows. Air is a cool toned cream, Wind is a warm ivory, Desert is a warm light brown, Clay is a pink toned light brown, Earth is a dark brown, Driftwood is a taupe brown, Fire is a brick red, Rain is a light taupe brown, Smoke is a cool medium grey & Ebony is a rich black. I think this palette has a great color selection and gives you all the matte colors you need in your collection.
All of the shadows in this palette have an impeccable formula. They are not dry or chalky like many matte shadows, they are soft and smooth. The shadows have great pigmentation and don't need to be built up. These shadows are the easiest matte shadows to blend, out of all the drugstore and high end shadows I've tried.
The In The Know Palette also comes with a Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in the shade Halfmoon. Halfmoon is an interesting warm grey color with a fairly matte finish. I have always been a fan of Stila's Smudge Sticks, and Halfmoon does not disappoint. Its creamy and easy to apply a thin line to the lower or upper lash line. It doesn't translate as well to the waterline, but mechanical pencils typically don't. Halfmoon is full sized and contains 0.01 oz / 0.28 g of product.
