Here are swatches of the 10 eye shadows in  Stila's In The Light Eye Shadow Palette:
Top Row:
Bare - a matte ivory used as a all-over base, a bit powdery but no fallout
Kitten -  a shimmering nude pink, very pretty and shimmery. My favorite of the bunch.
Bliss - a matte nude, perfect balance of peach-pink-brown. Great as a color diffuser.
Sunset - a copper shimmer
Sandstone - a matte neutral brown. Also one of my fave, a very beautiful taupe-y brown.

Bubbly - a pale gold shimmer
Gilded Gold - a bronze with gold shimmer, more of a light brown, less coppery than Sunset
Luster - deep gray with gold shimmer. Loving that  speckles of gold.
Night Sky - a slate blue with silver shimmer
Ebony - a matte black, very pigmented but a little bit chalky

Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Damsel - matte chocolate brown which very pigmented and didn't budge after it dried.

I really like this palette. This has been on my To-Buy list for ages but was stopping myself from spending that much on eye shadows. I see now what I have been missing.The shadows are pigmented, very buttery with very minimal fallout.

I tried to do Look 3, Urban Gypsy from the booklet:
I definitely need more practice applying eye shadows but I love the effect I got. The look is very soft and unassuming but nonetheless very pretty.
Final Look:
Overall: Stila In The Light Eye Shadow Palette gives you great value for money with 10 half-sized eye shadows (Approx Value: 10 x $10) and a full-sized eyeliner (Value: $19). The eye shadows are generally buttery and applied beautifully, with minimal fallout. This is a great nude palette that's versatile enough to use day or night. I'm sure you would get a lot of mileage and use out of this.
