Stila "In The Moment" Eye Shadow Palette

I had the privileged to test out this eye shadow palette from Stila. 

Stila's eye shadows are known to be highly pigmented and very shimmery.  Stila's In the Moment palette is the perfect neutral palette for creating a day and night look.  This palette contains 10 eye shadow shades and 1 Smudge Stick Waterproof eyeliner in Tetra (a deep shimmery purple).  The palette retails for $39USD at Sephora.  The price is excellent because it would have cost $118USD for 10 individual eye shadows and the eye liner. 

Top (L to R): Instinct (shimmery cream), Impulse (shimmery lavender), Glance (matte bright purple), Improvise (shimmery deep eggplant), and Catalyst (matte black)
Bottom (L to R): Desire (matte peach), Wonder (shimmery pinky brown), Spontaneous (shimmery gold), Whim (shimmery medium brown) and Captive (shimmery brown purple)

Instinct, Impulse, Glance, Improvise, and Catalyst
Desire, Wonder, Spontaneous, Whim, Captive and eye line in Tetra

The colours are very romantic with purples, pinks, coppers and creams.  The eye shadows have very high pigmentation.  One time when I was putting on make up before work, I forgot to put an eye primer before putting on these eye shadows.  At the end of my shift, I noticed that my eye shadow did not melt off my face and was still visible and bright.  

This palette is great for creating a day and night look.

For day, I use desire under my brow line, wonder on my crease, captive on my lids and catalyst on the outer corners of my eyes and to line the bottom half of my lash line.

For night, I use instinct under my brow line, wonder on my inner crease, glance on my outer crease, improvise on my lids catalyst on the outer corners of my eyes and to line the bottom half of my lash line.
