Stila's 'In the Light' Palette makes for a great everyday eye. For those who love golden and bronze colors I think this is for you. As an eyeshadow lover I gravitate towards these kind of colors mostly everyday. No matter how many neutral eye shadows I have, I seem to collect more and more out of any other shade. I think this palette is well suited for any eye color really, I have brown eyes and I love created a warm smokey eye. The colors are great for the day because you can use the slightest hint of color to polish your look off, or you can amp it up by intensifying the crease area with colors like luster & night sky. The eyeshadows do have a slight shimmery metallic tinge to them, however it's not overly sparkly when applied to the skin. I am very pleased with this sample, I've been able to get multiple uses out of it, and many of the colors are still present on the sample card.
Texture & Application: The first thing that I noticed about these shadows is how well the brushes pick up the pigment, with a swipe or two I had enough eyeshadow to cover my lid. Even when you swipe your finger a generous amount comes on without any fall out! Thing to note here is no fall out at all. All the colors transfer amazingly to the skin, they look silky and blend easily compared to other shadows that are chalky and sit on the surface.
Price point is around $50, and the full size palette comes with an eyeliner. Although more of a high end palette, I think the colors are all wearable and of extremely high quality. Considering my experience with this palette I would definitely grab it given the opportunity. Especially for the summer months it's great cause you can wear eyeshadow without feeling too over done.
I also really liked how the palette came with this guide, it gives you a suggestion of possible looks!
