I love Stila products! When I first started experimenting with higher end cosmetics, I visited the Stila store in our local mall (which is no longer there, sniff, sniff), and received a ton of help from a super friendly sales associate. She introduced me to a lot of the basic products, and I fell in love pretty immediately. They worked well, fit my lifestyle, and even came in cute little packages. The one thing I didn't love was the lack of variety of eye shadow colors. I love pizzazz and colors--especially the "nighttime" colors that you aren't supposed to wear to work, and so I was a little disappointed in the sophisticated and refined selection of colors that they offered.



With that said, I tended to gravitate towards Urban Decay, Make Up Forever and other flashy brands, but a friend of mine kept telling me that I "needed" to try Kitten, that it was the best eye color ever. I said that it looked boring, and picked up some lime green with chunky glitter. Eventually I ordered a gift pack that included the Kitten color and was amazed by how much I loved this "boring" color. It was shimmery, and subdued, while still packing the flash and punch that I needed. They market it as a flattering shade for all skin tones, and it lives up to that reputation. I used it on top of brighter colors, on its own, and to blend. I use it nearly every day.



The only complaint I would have with the Kitten pan is that it seems to break easily. I have gone through two now, and each has broken up into a million tiny pieces with normal daily use. I have never had any other Stila pan shadow do that. I generally just end up breaking it up into a loose powder and dumping it into a small container. It works great that way too!

I read rave--and I mean RAVE-- reviews about Stila's Eyeshadow in Kitten. I finally bought a collection of Stila eyeshadows that included Kitten (because it was on sale and I wanted to try that shade in particular).  So excited to try this magical shade, I suppose I may have been too hyped--like when someone tells you a movie is amazing and then you watch it and think, "hmm...it's wasn't *that  *amazing...." I really wanted to like this shadow. Perhaps people with different skin tones have been raving about it, but for me, I found that it was just slightly above average in color and quality. I'm sorry to say it, but I'm not a fan. It's incredibly crumbly and I don't like the way it applies---aside from my general displeasure with the color. When I use my eyeshadow brush it picks up a lot of powder and seems to waste a lot.  And then, the shadow, when applied, looks uneven and cakey. The first time I used it, I thought it was because of the primer I used, so the next time I tried it without. Same effect. I was definitely not impressed. But I really wanted to be!

Stila Kitten- Not Bad

By 

from Montgomery, AL

Comments about Stila Eyeshadow Pan, Kitten:

I got the kitten eyeshadow in a pallete stila came out with called the it girl. The pallete was only ten bucks which i think was really great for three stila eyeshadows. I think kitten is a pretty yellowy gold and champagne color. I wouldn't have personally went out and bought this on it's on, but i'm glad i own it. Shortly after i bought these, i was doing a review on it, and as i was doing it, the kitten eyeshadow fell out onto the floor. I was super suprised because it just came straight out of the pan. I picked up the piece i could(which was really hard becasue the eyeshadow is so soft). and put them in a plastic cup. For a while, i just used it in "pigment form" until recently i just minded it back into the pan with alcohol. I still use it, but i have to be careful with it because it's so soft. I don't know if all the containers it comes in does this, but mines did. I still really like the eyeshadow though.

shimmery, neutral color

By 

from Merchantville, NJ

Comments about Stila Eyeshadow Pan, Kitten:

I bought this when sephora was having their kitten set which includes the eyeshadow and the lipgloss. Since this is about the eyeshadow, I will only be reviewing it and not the lipgloss. The eyeshadow is a bit expensive individually so I would recommend waiting until sephora have these on sale. Also, the eyeshadow is a bit fragile so I recommend keeping it in a metal tin or stila's makeup pan.

First off, this eyeshadow is very neutral. I would call it almost champagne. You can wear it in the daytime or even do a more smoky look with it by well being creative. It feels soft and silky on my lids, which is great. It has good pigmentation too. The product blends easily and is a good eyeshadow to have in your makeup bag since many looks from am to pm can be done with this. It also works well as a brow highlighter. However, if you do not like shimmery eyeshadows, kitten is not for you.

Overall, I would recommend it to a friend or anyone who needs that neutral eyeshadow.

beautiful color

By 

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about Stila Eyeshadow Pan, Kitten:

easy to apply, and pretty color. I thought the color maybe a little more light on my skin and was hesitated to buy it. However after I came to the counter at the mall and had the sales assistant helped me to try it on my face. It looks great on my skin. Just the right color. By the way my skin is yellowish and becomes dark in the summer when there is a lot of sunshine in Arizona. It has sparkling items though, so be careful if you don't like yourself glow under the light. I have recommended to some of my friends and they all like it. They choose different color though to fit on their skin color. The only con would be it is a little bit pricy and with a lot of amount. It may take forever to complete the whole disk. If they could make a mini size and sell it for cheaper that will be great. And I would be love to have all different colors in mini size eyeshadow pans from Stila. Would like to try them all!

Stila Kitten is a Staple!

By 

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about Stila Eyeshadow Pan, Kitten:

Stila is one of my all time favorite brands, so it's probably not surprising for you to learn that I am absolutely in love with this product. I read about it on a makeup forum and everyone who'd used it just raved and raved about how awesome it was. I had to try it for myself.

Well, that was a lengthy five years ago and I can tell you that to this day, Stila kitten is one of my all-time favorite beauty staples! It goes on smoothly and doesn't contain loads of glitter - just enough shimmer to highlight your eyes and soften your overall look. I always get compliments on this eyeshadow when I wear it out (which is probably at least once a week).

The pan is nice because you can buy the eyeshadow and then instead of re-buying the eyeshadow again, you can just purchase the replacement pan. That saves you lots of money in the long run (especially if it becomes a regular in your cosmetic cabinet) and is also greener. Overall, a definite must-have for any woman of any age!

Very Refreshing

By 

from Cleveland, OH

Comments about Stila Eyeshadow Pan, Kitten:

I loved this eyeshadow! Very soft and nice, stayed on my eyes and didn't flake off. I loved the color, it's a nice soft shade that really highlights your eyes and brightens them. While it isn't a darker shade, it is good for the lid and for a base. I love Stila, it is really such a nice brand. I have many of these other colors as well and all of them really have great staying power and don't fade easily. I put it on in the morning, went to my meeting, out to lunch, back to work, out to dinner, and cleaned the house and it still stayed on until I washed my face before I went to bed!! I was pretty shocked, I knew it was strong but I didn't think it would last the entire day. Overall, I must say that I love Stila, I love this brand, and I love this eyeshadow! It's something you can really use in many different situations, dramatic at night or playful during the day. Best paired with purple and green on my eyes! Recommended!

Great Everyday Shade

By 

from Tacoma, WA

Comments about Stila Eyeshadow Pan, Kitten:

Stila eyeshadow in Kitten in my go-to color.  I was first introduced to this color when I was in college and bought one of the holiday pans from Nordstrom.  I instantly fell in love with this color.  I have tan skin, but I get pretty pale in the winter.  This color looks great on me all year long.  You can wear it day or night, with or without an eyeliner.  It really makes my brown eyes stand out and I know that it works with every eye color because my friends have borrowed it and it looks great on them, too.  I know that Stila eyeshadows are a little pricey, but it is a quality shadow.  It is easy to apply and goes on smooth and evenly.  It is not chalky looking and has just a little bit of sparkle to brighten your eyes.  I have had one break on me, but I just used the good old vaseline trick and turned it into a creamy eyeshadow.  It still looked great despite the change in consistency.  Now go out a buy it!

Stila Kitten = PERFECT Everyday Neutral Eyeshadow Color

By 

from Garden Grove, CA

Comments about Stila Eyeshadow Pan, Kitten:

Kitten is my favorite go-to eyeshadow color for everyday wear. I love the subtlety of the shimmer in this eyeshadow. The sparkles aren't too chunky and don't bother me that much at all. The only downside is that there is a lot fall out so I have to use an eyeshadow primer but I don't mind. The primer just keeps my eyeshadow on longer :). It is very easy to apply and blend out. Kitten is a great color to wear all over the lid everyday. Whenever I don't feel like doing an elaborate eye look, I just add kitten all over my lid, line my eyes with some black eyeliner, and put on two coats of mascara and I'm good. Kitten is such a great way to brighten up my eyes and it is the perfect subtle neutral color if you're looking for a simple eye look for the day. As for nighttime, kitten would be a great inner-eye color, near your tear duct. BOTTOM LINE: There is a little fall out with Stila's Kitten eyeshadow, but just use some eyeshadow primer beforehand, and you'll be all good. The color is perfect for everyday wear.

        Comments about Stila Eyeshadow Pan, Kitten:

        Stila Eyeshadow Pan in Kitten is hands down one of the most perfect and also most universal colors that I have ever seen from any cosmetics company.  It is a perfectly neutral and works with any skin tone or eye color that anyone could have.  Stila Eyeshadow Pan in Kitten applies with ease and does not tug as it is applied to your eye lids.  This is the perfect eye shadow becase it does not fade or crease ever, the wonderfully good folks at Stila really use a lot of pigment in their eye shadows because I have never had to reapply them before.  I love how silky they feel and are when you apply them.  Stila Eyeshadow Pan in Kitten really works for just about everyone I think that this is one of my most favorite colors from Stila and I love it.  I always have a back up pan in case mine runs out and I forgot to order ahead of time!  That is how much I love my Stila Eyeshadow Pan in Kitten. I cannot say enough nice things about this product.
