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.

Worth every penny!

I am in love with this palette. I use this almost all the time because of the neutral shadows on the bottom for everyday use and the fun purple shadows on the top when I want to amp up my look a little bit. The eyeliner is a great addition to this palette and goes well with any look you could make within the palette.

Dual purpose makeup

I bought this palette for a special occasion, but it became a vital part of my make-up ritual. I mostly use the bottom row of colors for an everyday, natural looking glow. The colors layer nicely over each other without caking up. I use the top row for parties, dates, or days I'm just feeling frisky. The pigments are on the lighter side, but that makes these colors great for any occasion. You can go light or layer them up for a more dramatic effect. Some of the lighter colors are really loose and powdery though, so I always have to go back with a tissue and clean up. Overall, this palette is pretty great, especially for brown eyes (purple makes them pop!).

beautiful palette

This eyeshadow palette is a beautiful compilation of colors that provide you with an array of looks. The only downside is the eyeliner. Bad quality-the liner doesn't roll up. However, even with the bad eyeliner the beautiful eyeshadows make this a 5-star palette.

Love this palette!
Purchased

I was skeptical, but the shadows are perfect for my green eyes! They're not "super" pigmented, but not cheap either. They last the longest with an eye shadow base/primer, and are the perfect glimmer to matte ratio.

Gorgeous!

I love this palette! There are some really great staple neutrals with this really pretty pop of purple. I can't say anything about it! Plus the smudge stick is full size & complements the palette.

Wonderful palette--a little glam, a little drama

I am embarrassed to admit how many of these Stila palettes (and other brands, too), but a girl cannot have too many eyeshadows!
This shadow is fantastic. It goes on smoothly (wet or dry), and lasts all day, especially when applied over an eyeshadow primer.
The automatic pencil included in the palette works pretty well, though it does need to be blended carefully. I usually also apply a little powder shadow over the top for better staying power.
The colors in this palette are mostly shimmers, but none are particularly obnoxious or prom-y. I'm 41 and find I can wear each one easily. And it turns out purple can look really sophisticated and dramatic, and not at all 1980s!
What makes these palettes so cool is the accompanying instruction booklet that give you a list of fantastic ideas of how to wear these colors. You can follow the instructions to the letter, or use other colors in the palette of similar hue to get a slightly different look.

A great complement to brown eyes

If Wonder were available to buy on its own, I'd buy as many as I could get my hands on. Definitely my favorite eye shadow color and one that I use with all the other shadow palettes I have. This palette also introduced me to stila's liner, and as a result I have purchased several other colors. I love the texture and it stays on all day.
