Colors: Rose Gold Retro & Kitten Karma
If you ask us, one of the best ways to fight winter blues is by adding a “little something” to our makeup collection, especially when it makes us feel like a shining (movie) star. Meet Stila’s Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Eye Shadow and blink your wintery mood away.
Were this a movie projection, we would have started with a disclaimer: Not suitable for girls with glitter repulse. This eye shadow, which we tried on Rose Gold Retro and Kitten Karma, sure sparkles! Imagine a power combo of pearl and glitter. Its luster and shimmering effect are pitch-perfect for special events, nights out dancing or to go with that sleek gown you’ve been saving for a romantic date. Eye contact and flirty blink friendly, this product showed minimal fallout, due to its water-infused texture.
To further reduce fallout, we started by using an eyeshadow primer like the Too Faced Shadow Insurance and finished with a setting spray (Urban Decay All Nighter, for instance). The application is easy – we used our finger but a very firm brush will do it as well – and the product dried smoothly without losing any sparkle. Stila did an incredible job keeping pigmentation levels high with such a lightweight and crease-resistant texture.
Wanting to add some depth to the look with paired it a matte eyeshadow and the result was… brilliant! It’s perfect for a day-to-night upgrade and a great substitute to glitter eyeshadow. Always keep one on hand just in case you stumble in a red-carpet event and need an instant pop of stardust to your eyelids.
