Stila’s Magnificent Metals Glitter and Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in Kitten Karma Review

I don’t wear glitter eyeshadow all the time, but I do enjoy them whenever I have an event or wedding to attend and I want to add sparkle to my eyes. I used to keep a bunch of loose glitter in my collection, but I find that they can be too messy for me, so I like the formula of Stila’s Glitter and Glow Liquid Eye Shadows because it’s glitter dispersed in a liquid which makes it easier to apply.

What It Is

Dazzling, long-wearing liquid, sparkle eyeshadow. The perfect mix of pearl and glitter adorns eyes with incredible lustre and shimmer. (Stila.ca)

Price

$31.00 CAD (4.5 mL) This is a pretty pricey, to be honest. However, when I want glitter, I’m always glad I have this in my collection

Colour

I have the shade Kitten Karma, which is a champagne shade with silver and copper glitters, it gives off a pink tone which is pretty on the eyes. I like this shade because I feel like it goes with the majority of my eye looks and a lot of the outfits I tend to wear. The glitter is very intense which is perfect for when you want bold-looking eyes.

Packaging

I think the tube is very practical. I like that you can see the colour and glitter inside which is useful if you have a few of these guys laying around. It’s also designed in a way that contains any access product inside, so it doesn’t get messing (I’m thinking of my loose glitter jars that would almost explode glitter everytime I opened them). The applicator is flat which makes sweeping this on the eyelids pretty easy. I still prefer to use my fingers to apply this though.

Application & Wear

Although I would say this is easier to apply compared to loose glitter, it still does have some fallout so you need to be careful when blending it with a brush. I find that it’s easier applying my eyeshadow first, then doing the rest of my face because I can clean up any glitter fallout. Once it’s dried down though, it locks onto my eyes and will last an entire night.

The base of these glitters is quite sheer as you can see in my photo above where I’ve blended it out. I really like that because you can change the way this looks depending on what colour eyeshadow you wear underneath and if you just want a wash of glitter on the eyes, you can apply a bit over your bare lide.

In the look above, I took some warm shades into the crease but kept my lid fairly bare. I then just placed a few layers of glitter all over my lid and blended it out slightly. I didn’t wait for it to completely dry which is why you see a little transfer on my crease. Either way, you can see that it adds quite an impact.

It’s extremely comfortable on the eyes too. It doesn’t feel like I’m wearing chunky glitter and once it’s dried down it really doesn’t budge so even after a long night, I don’t see it moving onto the rest of my face.

My Thoughts

Overall, I think that the Stila Glitters make a great addition to any makeup collection. Even if you don’t wear a lot of eye makeup, swiping this all over the lid instantly transforms any look into a glam one. I recently picked up another one of these (diamond dust – which is a silver glitter with colourful reflects) because I just like the formula and how easy this is to use!

Have you tried any of the Magnificent Metals Glitter and Glow Liquid Eye Shadows? What shade is your favourite?

Lots of Love,

  1. I recently picked up a three pack of minis of these. My main problem that I’m having is that they seem to take forever to dry down and as I have hooded eyes they go everywhere! I must be doing something wrong πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

  2. This shade is so beautiful and suits you a lot! I really want to try these as I quite like one or two eye products for a look and actually have more single colours than palettes I think! πŸ˜› The only thing putting me off buying these is the fact I feel like I have enough makeup already haha
