I grew up absolutely loving Barbie and her entire entourage. I had the dream house, huge Rubbermaid totes full of dolls, clothes and accessories, and anything else that went along with her. It’s no wonder I love makeup. Barbie always had the most up-to-date eyeshadow application and hair-do’s. She was a fashionista before her time!
It’s not wonder that Stila paired up again with Barbie to create the Barbie Loves Stila collection. I was lucky enough to get the “All Doll’d Up” eyeshadow palette from my grandmother for my birthday. This palette consists of 4 pans of eyeshadows, each of which has 3 shades that coordinate together, totalling 12 fantastic colors in one convenient package. The outside has a holographic Barbie who winks at you – so cute!
This last pan is my close-second favorite color set. I love greens, so by default I liked these. The outer color is a very pale mustard yellow with minimal golden shimmer. The middle is such a neat color – it’s a deep chocolate brown with duochrome effect, ranging into the greens and golds. The outer color is a beautiful pale-evergreen color.
I was very impressed with these colors. The pigmentation is excellent, and the consistency is that of the much-coveted Kitten eyeshadow. Not one is brittle. All blend effortlessly together. They can be applied wet, as a liner, or dry. There is no fall out when used, and the range of colors and mix-and-match opportunities are endless! This is very much a bargain at the $28 price tag.
