Stila In the Light Eye Shadow Palette (Quick Swatches!!)

Stila In the Light Eye Shadow Palette, $39 at Ulta









So many people told me to check this palette out! I finally got it and now I’m gonna swatch it for you so you can see that this is a palette to think about picking up. I think some people might be able to get a lot of use out of this because pretty as it is…it’s an every day type palette. There are a million looks in this line up of ten shades and thank goodness they threw some mattes in there!

From Ulta’s website:

The palette includes an exclusive Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Damsel, a matte chocolate brown, and an 6-page lookbook with detailed how-to tips and tricks.
Shades include:

  • Bare – matte ivory shade
  • Kitten
  • Bliss – matte beige pink
  • Sunset – shimmery canyon pink
  • Sandstone – matte light coco
  • Bubbly – shimmery pale gold
  • Gilded Gold – golden brown with shimmer
  • Luster – dark aubergine with gold shimmer
  • Night Sky – blue with shimmer
  • Ebony – black
  • BONUS: Palette also includes an exclusive Smudge Stick shade in Damsel, a matte brown. Total eye shadow weight: .49oz. Smudge Stick is full-sized.

    These colors can be worn wet or dry. Here are some quick swatches of the colors dry without primer. Remember to click on a picture to make it bigger.

    Stila always manages to make usable shimmery shadows. They aren’t straight up glitter even though they look seriously shimmery in the pan. I know Kitten is a favorite shade for many but this palette incorporates so many other usable as well as wearable shadow shades. I love the finish (could you tell already?) but there is some fall out. I always do my eyes first so I never worry much about that. I didn’t get a chance to use the included brown smudge stick in Damsel yet but I can tell you I already love the palette.

    I don’t know why I always overlook Stila palettes but that ends now. I hear they have a all matte finish palette….I’ll let you know if I pick it up!

      I swear on er’thang I do not need another palette. Let alone another neutral one. These are some pretty shades though. I don’t know how I missed out on this and the purple one. If a gift card falls into my hands, I’m not making any promises lol.

      This palette is really nice and was a favorite of mine. I gave it to my sister when she was in town because she loved it so much (which is huge because she doesn’t wear makeup ever)! I’ve been avoiding shopping for makeup like a plague, so I haven’t repurchased since I have A LOT of shadows, lol! It’s so pretty and versatile!

      i have the all matte palette! Personally I love it. It is great neutral colors and when blended together they can create a really pretty look. The only disappointing shades in it is the two lightest colors and the black because they dont have too much pigmentation, but overall they are really nice quality and I heard they could be used wet for more color, but I dont see a need to! :)
