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 enticing pigment. But together, they’re sure to become a staple of your makeup collection. With ten gorgeous shadows in both neutral and wearable purple hues—plus the versatile smudge stick waterproof liner in Tetra — 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 Instinct, a baby pink, Desire, a soft, mid-tone pink, Impulse, pale lavender with slight sheen, and Wonder, a rosy pink laced with with shimmer. Cool tones include Glance, an intense violet, Improvise, a deep plum, Whim, a reddish-brown with shimmer, and Captivate, a mid-tone purple-brown with golden pearl. Rounding out the collection is Catalyst, a daring black with pink sparkle, and Spontaneous, a soft shimmery beige-gold. And don’t forget the liner—Tetra is a deep shimmery purple.

How to Use

Using a shadow brush, apply the shadow of your choice along eyelids, sweeping light colors like Impulse and Instinct up to your brow bones for eyes that appear wide awake. Next, highlight the crease of your eyes with a touch of Whim or Captivate. Finally, use a liner brush to apply dark shades like Catalyst or Improvise along your lashline. Or use the Tetra Smudge Stick liner along your lashline.

WOW just wow
Purchased

I became a Birchbox member about 9 months ago, because I wanted to try higher-end products before splurging on them. I can not believe I went 22 years of life buying all my makeup from the drugstore. Stila has changed my life. I use eyelid primer (how did I ever live without it, SERIOUSLY) and then go to town with this palette. It is SO VERSATILE. The purple goes amazing with my green eyes and since the colors are so pigmented, I can do anything from sheer to intense with just a few extra sweeps of the brush. This palette might be seen as limiting since it's all purple-based however I use this probably 5-6 out of 7 days in the week and I don't get tired of it. The gold and peach colors are also awesome with my summer tan! Love this! Highly, highly recommended. Absolutely worth every penny

A well loved palette

Wonderful, versatile colors. The lightest neutral color is PERFECT for highlighting the arch of your eyebrow, and the soft lilac color will make blue eyes pop. I didn't particular care for the eye liner included, but bought it for the shadows.

Great palette!
Purchased

Before ordering this product from Birchbox, I literally owned nothing for eye makeup other than mascara. This palette is a great way to start a collection, and I really like the hues against my brown eyes.

Love this palette!
Purchased

I'm in love with these colorsa so rich, bold and sultry, but can be toned down for day time or work! I also never thought about wearing anything but black or Brown liner, and tetra is a really beautiful but subtle eggplant liner!

Great product + Great Service!
Purchased

The colors in this palette are absolutely gorgeous - perfect for anyone with brown eyes. The colors are long-lasting and not too shimmery. The palette I received had a defective eyeliner, when I contacted customer service, they took extremely good care of me. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase and the exceptional customer service has made me a life-long customer.

The colors are beautiful, they go on and stay on, and are bright and vibrant. The best part is the look book, as I am not so great with eyeshadow and appreciate the directions on how to apply to get different looks! Definitely recommend this.

Stila Rocks!
Purchased

I own every Stila palette that Birchbox carries and this one looks great with my brown eyes! I wish the palette came with an application brush instead of an eyeliner, but it definitely isn't a deterrent from purchasing the product!
