New STILA Countless Colour Pigments

Im usually not a big fan of wearing bright coloured eyeshadows as I have no idea when it comes to vibrant colour combinations and have difficulty blending these sort of colours in however Stila's user friendly Countless Colour Pigments have converted me. This long wearing, pigmented and also pearly formula allows you to effortlessly glide on the eyeshadow and blend them in.

There are 10 different types of palettes you can choose from and really each pan is like a piece of art.
There are so many different colour combinations you can do - You can use each shade individually or custom blend any of the pigments to create your own colour. It gets your creativity jogging.

If your not a big fan of bright colours, there are some more neutral palettes you can pick from. I personally wanted to choose the bright pigments because 1. I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and try something different and 2. I have way too many neutral shades already. That being said, I can still  use these bright palettes on a day-to-day basis with my neutral shades (e.g., pick a vibrant colour from one of these pans and line either the top/bottom lash line with is to add a touch of colour to your everyday look).

Stila Countless Colour Pigments - $30 AUD

Above: Swatches of Tie Dye (Pink, Turquoise, Cobalt) and Light Show (Emerald, Teal, Ocean Blue) 
The colour at the end of each swatch is achieved when all three pigments are swirled and mixed together.

If you swirl and mix the pigments together it becomes one mush of colours. To get the pigments separated again, all you have to do is use a large fluffy brush and dust over it a few times. After about two swipes, the pigments will be back in their original separated form.

Below is 4 sets of different looks achieved from using the new Stila Countless Colour Pigments
(just to add - they can't be used wet)

'The Peacock' 

(colourful, vibrant, rainbow, dress up party) 

'Light Show'

(greens, blues, purely using the 'Light Show' palette)

Here I've blended all three colours together and have applied it to the centre of the lid.

'Tie Dye'

(purples, pinks, blues, purely using the 'Tie Dye' palette)


'Everyday Purple'

(dressed down purple, everyday look)

Here I'm using 'Foxy' in the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette 
all over the eyelid.

Here I'm using 'Busted' in the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette to 
darken the outer edges of the purple.

Here I'm using Nars Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in  'Hollywood' to line 
the inner corners of the eye.



  1. Those look like so much fun :)


  2. Great review! Nice photos, and I really like that you showed different looks using the shadows at the end. I just got two of these myself, and I'm excited to try them out!
