The new In the Garden Eye Shadow Palette is a stunning collection of Stila's award-winning eye shadows in wearable, botanical-inspired shades for every skin tone. The palette also includes an exclusive Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Starfish (black with gold and green pearl), and an 8-page look book with detailed how-to tips and tricks. A gorgeous, palette with 10 shades of Stila's award-winning eye shadow formula that can be worn wet or dry.
Love this pallet, as well as the In the Moment pallet. I am expanding the shades I wear and love using the darker colors on the outer third of the lid. Highly pigmented shades, and buttery texture...very easy to apply!
A perfect mix of neutrals and color, matte and shimmer. Smooth, with nice color payoff, but not too crazy pigmented--for a neutral kinda girl, this is key. I like to wear the jewel toned e/s as on the upper lashline. My preferred way: Lay on some of the black/olive (glittery!) eyeliner--a thicker line of it. Follow with a wash of the lighter, nude-y shades. I top it all off with one of the richer jewel shades on the lashline, applied with dampened slanted eyeliner brush.
I first originally saw this Palette online at Sephora.com on sale for a really great price so I decided I'd buy it.The palette comes with 8 shimmers, 1 demi-shimmer, 1 matte, and 1 smudge stick waterproof liner. I LOVE the smudge stick; the color is great and it has a little shimmer which makes the eyes brighter, but doesn't look too "glamorous". I usually add this color to my lash line so it gives my eyes great definition and stays on all day. The shadows are nicely pigmented and give you the same color on the lid as shown on the palette. These shadows are also smooth and blend well with each other. The reason I give it four stars instead of the full five is because I rarely use the brighter colors: Feesia, Juniper, and Rosette. I'm still learning how to use bright colors like these so I don't like them yet. But overall this palette is truly beautiful :)
I just got this palette and the colors are great. Excellent selection for Spring. The eyeliner is also great and goes on smoothly. The picture I feel doesn't show how rich the colors are.

I also have a blog review on this palette. http://makeupblossom.blogspot.com/2012/05/stilas-in-garden-palette.html
Great variety of colors & great pigmentation. A great palette for spring!! The eyeliner is great too, but it isn't black like everyone thinks...it's a dark olive color with gold flecks. Still a nice eyeliner & very pigmented.
Great product for the price. I usually wear a lot of brown shades, but found myself loving the pink and blue colors. Got it at Sephora and got a sample of Stila Prime Pot and works great with it. The shimmer is subtle, but looks amazing.
