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 matte shadows in earthy hues—plus the bestselling Smudgestick liner in Halfmoon—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 a spectrum of beiges: Air, Wind, Desert, and Clay. Deeper tones include Driftwood and Rain, two warm browns, Earth, a rich dark brown, and Smoke, a sultry grey. Rounding out the collection, Fire is a burnt orange and Ebony is a true black. And don’t forget the liner—Halfmoon is a charcoal grey.

How to Use

Using a shadow brush, apply the shadow of your choice along eyelids, sweeping light colors like Air and Wind up to your brow bones for eyes that appear wide awake. Next, highlight the crease of your eyes with a touch of Earth or Driftwood. Finally, use a liner brush to apply dark shades like Smoke or Ebony along your lashline. Or use the Halfmoon liner to give your eyes extra dimension.

Finally ... A beautiful palette of all mattes!
Purchased

I am thrilled with this palette! Gorgeous colors and no shine!! Being a woman in her 50's, shadows with shine are not always best on my lids and as with other palettes, so many of them contain very few mattes. This is a beautiful set!

I was looking for a matte pallette and I think I found it.
Purchased

As I am coming up to a big 0 birthday, I went looking for a matte neutral palette, and this one won over all the others out there for me. Love the colors, matches my fair skin well and I am just loving it so much.

Not my favorite
Purchased

I was a little disappointed with this pallet. There are about three colors that I would actually were. Some of the dark colors are too much for me. If you like to wear intense colors then this would be a good choice but for more subtle tones you could find something different.

Great matte palette!
Purchased

I love the colors and they have great pigmentation. I use primer, but these colors stay on all night long. I feel like the 3 middle colors on the top row show up very similar on my skin tone, but this is still my go-to palette. The eyeliner is really just a bonus for me, but a brush would've been nicer.

Perfect Pallet!
Purchased

Im only 20 but I like simple and clean looks so I love this pallet because its all matte! And the colors are great for creating day looks and beautiful night looks! It comes with a look book too to give you ideas as well. I tried the colors wet too and they smudge great when they're wet! I just love this pallet so much. And Im willing to give sparkles a try so Ill be getting the In the Light Pallet next :)

Finally an all Matte Palette!

I love this. The texture is soft and velvety and the pigment is nice. This is a great palette for daily use during the day which gives a more natural look. Its also good for creating a smoky eye. I definitely recommend it if your looking for a matte palette!

Best matte pallet

I was really, really pleasantly surprised by this pallet. I was looking for a purely matte pallet to compliment another pallet I have that is all shimmery and I was really surprised by how much I like this pallet on its own. It comes with some really unique colors that are universally flattering (and I have a lighter skin tone) and stay all day without creasing. I also love the balance between light and dark colors...it makes it very easy to take your look from day to night or from work to play.

I will definitely be buying another STILA matte pallet soon.

Great shades not enough pigment

Difficult to adhere to lid without the proper primer and brush. My favorite shades to blend are Fire(burnt orange) and Clay(pinky beige). The two worst out of the palette are Air and Wind since they are lightest with the least pigment to pickup for lid. I would say they all have average pigment and wouldn't purchase another Stila palette. Havent been too impressed with this brand altogether.

Great matte shades for daily wear

I use almost every shade in this palette and truly recommend it as a makeup staple. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because my smudge stick was broken and did not scroll up (although Birchbox was amazing and refunded me for the product). From the few times I was able to use the eyeliner, it was amazing. I bought this palette to practice doing my wedding makeup and I will definitely use it on the big day.

Matte convert

I am a huge fan of the Stila In the Light palette, so I decided to give this a go. At first, I wasn't sure if the matte shades would look good on me or if the darker colors would be overbearing on my fair skin. But, I was pleasantly surprised! The colors go on easily (and better with the Stila eye primer) and layer nicely until you get the color you want. I'm really glad I tried this one!
