Sparkle + Shine: Stila Cosmetics Magnificant Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid eyeshadow
I think the last time I just about freaked out about an eyeshadow was when I saw the Stila Magnificant Metals Foil Finish Eyeshadow in Kitten. It was my first Stila product and when I kept seeing YouTubers using it, I had to own it.
Fast forward about two years now and when I saw the new Stila Magnificant Metals Glitter & Glow liquid eyeshadow in Karma Kitten, again, I died a little (I literally grabbed my coworkers arm and we were both like “oh. my. god.”).
In case you haven’t seen these glittery goodies, they are a long-wearing, sparkly liquid eyeshadow that gives you the most perfect blend of glitter and metallic that will give anyone a wink of shine every time you blink. Available in 10 shades (eight available through Sephora), these are incredibly lightweight and have a water-infused texture that glide on your lids effortlessly. They do dry quite fast and don’t loose their lustre once they are set.
I ended up getting the colour Karma Kitten, which is a champagne with silver and copper. It’s the most wearable, stunning shade, in my opinion. My coworker and I did swatch a few shades at Shopper’s Drug Mart, however, this one was the most glittery for some reason. Already owning Kitten in the Magnificent Metals version, I know how universal and stunning the shade is.
When a different friend swatched it on her hand, she did mention that there was a lot of fall out of the glitter and what was left was just the metallic colour. When I used this on my lids though, I found that there was some slight fall out, but for the most part, the sparkle stayed on through the night.
Stila recommends applying this to your lash line and the centre of your lids, and then using a brush, blend it out. I actually just applied it using the brush to the whole lid, but went in quite gently with it. A little goes a long way, but you can definitely pump up the volume by adding another coat. The product dried quite fast and didn’t crease. I also applied this over a taupe eyeshadow as I didn’t know what to expect. I do recommend doing a full eye and then adding this on after, but before your liner. Honestly, if you love glitter, you need one of these (or all of them) in your collection.
I wore this look out Friday night and had a few people asking me what I was wearing on the lids. With glitter in general, it can be a little hard to pull off. For one, you usually have to pack it on the lids, or if will fall out over your face, leaving you with a glittery mess. This product stayed on all night and didn’t fade away or crease, which was very impressive for a liquid eyeshadow. If you do experience fall out with this product, as some people have commented on Sephora’s site, you could try laying down a glitter glue prior to applying this. I do highly recommend applying a base eyeshadow though prior to laying this on.
These retail for C$31 through Sephora. You can also find them at Shopper’s Beauty Boutique for the same price. Seriously though, you need to see these IRL, they really are magnificent.
