These shadows can be applied dry or wet. Try using stila’s #13 one step eyeliner brush and a little bit of water to turn the shadows into punchy liner.

Birchbox Breakdown

Individually, each of these stila shadows packs plenty of pigment. But together, they’re sure to become a staple of your makeup collection. With 10 gorgeous shadows in watercolor hues—plus the versatile smudge stick waterproof liner in Starfish — this palette will inspire endless beauty looks. A $118 value!

How it Works

Made of finely pressed pigments, these shadows are designed to add high-impact color while also being easy to apply. Neutral shades include Chinois, a gorgeous matte white, Breeze, a warm shimmering gold, Nectar, a matte beige, and Honey, a classic gold. Earth tones include Bark, a sparkly taupe, Sage, a translucent green, Moss, a dark olive green with a subtle shine, and Juniper, a deep forest green. Rounding out the collection, Freesia is a daring violet and Rosette is a bold purple. And don’t forget the liner—Starfish is a black with gold and green pearl pigments.

How to Use

Using a shadow brush, apply the shadow of your choice along eyelids, sweeping light colors like Chinois and Nectar up to your brow bones for eyes that appear wide awake. Next, highlight the crease of your eyes with a touch of Honey or Sage. Finally, use a liner brush to apply dark shades like Juniper or Moss along your lashline. Or use the Starfish liner to give your eyes extra dimension.

Wow!
Purchased

I used BB points to give this product a try and am so glad that I did as it is a good value. Initially, all the color options were somewhat overwhelming to me and I was intimidated. Then I just started to play around with color combos and being more creative than usual with my eye colors. The small booklet that comes with the palette was good starting point for different looks and now I've found my own, custom combos that I am really enjoying. Try it, you'll like it!

Versatile Palette
Purchased

I love every single color in this palette and the eyeliner in starfish is perfect with my hazel -green eyes. I can dress them up or down and the colors always complement!

Awesome color array!
Purchased

I like this pallet overall. I've been using theBalm's Nude Tude pallet (which I bought here at Birchbox) for years, and it's still my favorite pallet overall!!! However, I wanted a pallet with a few extra color choices, and this one is nice.

Like some reviewers said, the color is definitely more of a sheer color rather than hyper-pigmented. But that's exactly what I was going for--- a sheer wash of color that I could wear to work (in a school) without looking too flashy. When I wanted more pigmentation from the colors, I drew more pigment out by 1)wetting my eyeliner brush first and 2) using a cream primer.

It was a nice touch to get the liner (which is also great) for free. It smudges nicely and doesn't seem to disappear throughout the day.

I would give it 5 stars, but I feel that this pallet could have done a few things differently. I would have liked to have gotten some type of little brush, wand, sponge applicator, etc. so there would be one in the pallet when I'm on the go. Also, when I apply this shadow dry, it does "flake" from the brush so you have to make sure your mascara is totally dry.

Pretty but not my favorite.
Purchased

I like this palette, but I don't love it. I wish the colors were a little more pigmented, I feel like you really have to build the colors and there seems to be fall out with the brighter colors. Overall, a good product especially if you don't want extreme color.

So I'm just starting to have fun with eye shadow palettes, and this was a great way to expand my horizons! I've already ordered more palettes and brush sets! I have a new love for makeup all over again! I especially love the bronze colors and the highlighters for the brow area! Beautiful!

Gorgeous colors!

I love all of the Stila "In the..." palettes! This palette has gorgeous and unique colors. The powders are nicely pigmented and are easy to blend. I really like this palette because of the colors. The textures and shades are different from any others I own. I'm excited to experiment with the many looks that I can create with this palette!! The eyeliner is also a unique color. It's a deep earthy green. It's a nice break from standard brown and black. I recommend this palette as well as all of the others from this collection!

Oh those Eyes

At last a palette that goes with my hazel eyes. I can intermix them to come up with new shades and eyeliners too. I really can't wait to try these. If I don't get a sample with my box, I am definitely going to buy this.

lovely

The pigmentation is great and the staying power is there. My only issue is that if you twist up the eyeliner, you'd better be prepared to use it right then and there because there is no twisting it back down. I ended up losing half of my liner that way. :(

Great colors

I loveeee green and golds. This palette has great colors, but they lack a lot of pigmentation.

You need to use a good primer and base for this, and they'll stay on longer and keep their color. They're pretty nice though.

Not very pigmented

They lack pigmentation across the board, and the jewel tones that I was really looking forward to using just turn out looking dark and muddy. Skip this one. There are tons of better palettes out there.
