Stila in the Light Eyeshadow Palette: Review & Swatches

This was one of my main purchases during the most recent Ulta 20% off. This palette does retail for $39 which is not as expensive as the naked palettes but still quite a bit of money.
 The palette comes inside a simple cardboard layer. 
 The back has an example of the palette layout. 
 It also comes with a mini lookbook for those who can't think of any looks to do. 
 The back of the actual palette has the same layout but no coloring. 
The palette also contains a full sized (.01 oz) smudge stick eyeliner.
There are 10 eyeshadows (.049 each)
 Also is a full sized mirror with a protector screen. 

  • Bare: Matte, cream colored, smooth texture, great browbone highlight


  •  Kitten: Shimmer, pinky champagne, creamy texture (but not a cream), great inner corner/lid/highlight


  •  Bliss: Matte, pinky brown, smooth texture, transition/blending/crease color


  • Sunset: Shimmer, orangey gold, creamy texture, lid color


  •  Sandstone: Matte, deep brown, smooth texture, crease color

 Top row swatched together.

  •  Bubbly: Shimmer, golden champagne, creamy texture, lid/highlight


  •  Gilded gold: Satin with glitter, light bronze with gold glitter, smooth texture but weak pigmentation, lid


  •  Luster: Satin with glitter, blackened green with  gold glitter, smooth texture,  lid/outer "v" of the lid

  •  Night Sky: Satin with glitter, light grey with silver glitter, smooth texture, outer "v" of the lid

  •  Ebony: Matte, black (comes off lighter than in the pan), okay texture a bit chalky

 Bottom row swatched together. 
  • Overall the only disappointing shades are Gilded Gold and Ebony
  • My favorites: Kitten and Bliss
  • Good wear time, I always use an eye primer though
  • The matte shades impressed me other than the black
  • Little to no fallout
  • I will do a separate review on the liner once I can put it through some more testing
