Got mine on rubybox and saved a little on this purchase using rubyrands.
i adore the lookbooks that come with Stila products.
And you get a waterproof liner.
As most people know i adore Stila ....i need very little prompting to buy their makeup.
Now when you've got matte shimmery sheer nudes through to ebony that are pigmented richly buildable and long lasting plus a lookbook to guide you from office chic to glam queen whats not to love.
From kitten to ebony i love all these shades

This is the first product I have used from Stila. Firstly, I like how the palette comes with a little mirror and has a cute saying on the labelling. This makes it easy to slip into your handbag or travelling case, and you don't need to pack a compact mirror as you already have one. The look of the palette is also very chic.

There are ten eyeshadows to choose from, most of which are neutral toned shades. I love utilising brown shades on my eyes, so was really happy with the colours included in the palette. A few of the shades also have glittery tones to them, which adds a little bit of sparkle to the eyes for night time looks.

I really enjoy using the eyeliner that was included. Its a roll up pencil, that's very soft on the skin. The shade I got is a dark brown, perfectly suited to the colours of the eyeshadows that were included in the palette.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this product! Definitely will be getting my hands on some more Stila goodies to test!

I am a self confessed beauty junkie!

I cannot contain my excitement when I discover a fabulous new beauty find...And Stila certainly does not disappoint! I purchased this gorgeous eye shadow palette upon recommendation from a friend, who looked absolutely fab while wearing the shadows of course.
I love that the palette has a balanced mix of shimmery and matt shadows, which can be used on their own or blended together...
Although I adore makeup, I don't always know the best way to apply the darn stuff! Cue the informative and fun 'lookbook'!
I love the shade 'Kitten', which also happens to be one of their bestsellers. Kitten creates the most purrrfect cat's eye! ;)
Just to shake things up a touch more, the shadows can be used wet or dry. So this means you can intensify your look or even use the darker shade 'Ebony' to line your eyes. Last but not least, the palette also includes a waterproof 'Smudge Stick' to line the eyes and boy does it last!

So I read a few good reviews and decided I wanted this! When I saw the pallette personally I wasn't too keen but I got it anyways.. And no regrets at all ! These are highly pigmented shadows that go on like a dream and stays put for hours! A bit pricey but it is ten shades of loveliness :p ... I especially love the shade "bubbly" which is gold with a shimmer ;)

This is my favorite SA natural eyeshadow palette. I love the combination of shimmery and matte shades. And any palette with the coveted stila kitten is a winner.

Kitten is my favorite color.

All the shades are very pigmented, are buttery soft, glide on easily and have great lasting power.

The price may seem steep, but the quality ensures it a great buy.

The eyeliner is beautiful as well. Has great staying power and is a nice brown.

This palette is highly recommended for everyone who likes neutral eye shadows! It is on the higher end of the price scale but it is great value for what you get, including the eyeliner.

I won't ramble on too long about this palette because Zahraa has covered most of it.
I absolutely love this product. The price is a bit high at R395 but you are getting 10 colours which are highly pigmented and lasts all day. I can vouch for this because today I was playing around with the colors and totally forgot that I had applied the shadow to my lids. I hadn't even used a primer. I went for a run, not realizing I had not taken the shadows off. When I got home, I realized the shadows were still on my eyelids and thought I would look like a monster! I looked in the mirror and was very surprised that the shadows had not moved at all. 5km later, and they were still there. Definitely a winner.
The colors that come in this pallet are a mixture of mattes and shimmers so you can wear this everyday or in the evening. The colors are very neutral so you can pull off a number of looks with this. The palette also comes with an adorable little booklet that shows you how to apply the different shadows and where to apply them to achieve different looks.
Like Zahraa said, the pallete does come with a mirror which is quite large and handy. The packaging of the pallet is cardboard but it is extremely sturdy. It also comes with a brown eyeliner which is nice when you want a liner that is not extremely harsh like black can be sometimes.

Well, well, well. Wasn't this a pleasant surprise...

I was a bit reluctant about this before getting it. While i was googling it, most of the shades didn't look like it would suit my skintone. Boy, was I wrong.

The 10 colours in the palette are:
Bare - matte ivory shade
Kitten
Bliss - matte beige pink
Sunset - shimmery canyon pink
Sandstone - matte light coco
Bubbly - pale gold shimmer
Gilded Gold - golden brown with shimmer
Luster - dark aubergine with gold shimmer
Night Sky - blue with shimmer
Ebony - black

My top 3 colours in this palette were bliss, kitten & sunset, but it has to be said that all of the shades suit me quite perfectly in some way, shape or form. Even bare, which is a very fair skin tone colour, but works on me as a highlight.

The palette comes with a crayon smudge stick in damsel (a very dark matte brown shade), which is perfect for day and night time looks.

The actual product doesn't come in very big pods of colour. I'm interested to see how they last.

I cannot stress enough how much I fell in love with this palette. I don't wear heavy makeup everyday but the Stila In the Light palette makes my want to.

Pro's:
perfect for all skin tones
just the right intensity
can be worn day or night
a good mix of matte and shimmery colours.
includes Kitten- the worlds best selling eye colour.
ranges from very light shades to black.
includes a mirror on the inside of packaging (not shown in the picture)

Con's:
Very pricey
Unsealable packaging.
