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 neutral and metallic tones—plus the versatile smudge stick waterproof liner in Damsel — 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 Bare, a gorgeous matte ivory, Bliss, a warm beige pink, Sandstone, a matte light coco, and Ebony, a classic black. Metallic tones include Kitten, a sparkly light gold, Sunset, a shimmering pink, Gilded Gold, a golden brown with shimmer, Luster, a deep aubergine, and Night Sky, a blue with silver undertones. Rounding out the collection is the matte brown Damsel liner.

How to Use

Using a shadow brush, apply the shadow of your choice along eyelids, sweeping light colors like Kitten and Bare up to your brow bones for eyes that appear wide awake. Next, highlight the crease of your eyes with a touch of Bliss or Bubbly. Finally, use a liner brush to apply dark shades like Ebony or Sandstone along your lashline. Or use the Damsel liner to add extra dimension to your eyes.

I'm not the best at eyeshadow, but this palette makes it easy!
Purchased

I've always loved Stila eyeshadow, and this palette is no exception. It has the perfect mix of dark and light shadows, and the eyeliner is divine. I want to purchase every single one of these, but I think this color combo is my favorite. Kitten is the most amazing shade ever, and the gold shadow is also divine. The blue is very wearable, unlike most blues and the copper, sunburst color .. well ... you need them all. Buy it! You won't regret it.

Love it!
Purchased

I finally ordered the Stila In the Light palette after a year or two of debating - I have so many palettes, I always question adding more, especially when the colors look similar. Iam so happy I ordered it, yet so mad that I waited so long! I love this palette! The colors are brilliant, the application is so smooth, I've had no fallout and the blending is effortless! Absolutely get this if you haven't yet, it's a must-have!

Beautiful eyeshadows
Purchased

I purchased this with my points and I'm so glad I did. I have to say the quality of these shadows are better than my Naked3 palette. They stay all day, and even with the shimmer ones like Kitten, I never have any fallout or glitter on my face at the end of the day.

Colors that work for everyone

I got this in my birch box and eventually bought it before the palette is so versatile! I think this would work of most people and the colors can be for day or night.

Great palette
Purchased

I really like this palette. The hues are great. The only issue I have is that the brown isn't as dark as I hoped it would be but it's still great!

Perfect neutral palette
Purchased

I have been going back and forth on whether to order this palette or another brand. I decided to go with this one and I am so happy that I did. I love that there are matte colors and some that have sparkle. It's easy to do something casual for the weekend with my kids or something a little different for work or dinner out. I really love this brand.

Excellent colors and value
Purchased

I have owned many Stila products. The colors are sheer but easily hyped up with extra application and work well for blending. Palette is great for the summer and didn't fade over the course of the day. Also a great price vs retail.

A great balance of shades
Purchased

Even though I don't wear makeup everyday (so this is lasting me a long time but), I think I'm ready to venture out to try different colors from this brand!
