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.

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!
Purchased

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
Purchased

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.

A little shoddy
Purchased

The colors were all misaligned in the palette. That made the product look cheap overall. The colors were okay but a little more sparkly than I would have liked.

Love this palette!!! I use this everyday. I love the neutrals and probably use the gray and white/tans the most. It has all the necessary shades to do a neautral smoky eye and to do natural for daytime. It has a slight shimmer to it to really capture the light. I haven't used the brighter colors (blue, green, purple) but they could be fun for a special occaision. This is a good size palette and will definitely last a while. It is also a good size to travel with. The eyeliner is not my favorite, but stays on all day.

Best Eyeshadow

Not a huge eyeshadow person. But I am in love with this natural earth tone palette. I have been wearing more eyeshadow now that i have this palette. Really like this brand and am looking forward to trying out their other products!

I love all of the colors in this palette. The little booklet is helpful but I feel like I'm not talented enough with eye makeup
