Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Eye Shadow

I’m not usually one to get excited over a glittery eyeshadow but I just had to share my new found love for these Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadows (and breathe…) from Stila. Available in eight shimmering shades, they are seriously beautiful and add such a gorgeous glittery finish to your eye makeup.

The texture is quite unusual – it is lightweight and water-infused so is liquid and ‘wet’ to apply but then dries down to a smoothly, powdery finish. This is great as it means you don’t have any fallout like you would with a powder or loose eyeshadow. It feels luxurious to apply and is easy to place over your eyelid or under your waterline with its doe foot applicator. If you wanted a more subtle sparkle effect, you could dab on the glitter using your finger. You can easily wear them alone or over another eyeshadow for some serious impact!

The mix of pearl and glitter make these eyeshadows look incredibly shimmery and luxe in different lights. I have two shades above, Kitten Karma (brilliant name!) and Diamond Dust. My favourite is Kitten Karma – it is slightly bronzed colour with a touch of rose gold. These swatches don’t do them justice so if you are reading this post today, head over to my instagram stories to see them in action!

    I am really loving the look and sound of these magnificent metal eyeshadows – both of the shades you have are gorgeous! I have my eye on Rose Gold Retro – it looks like the perfect shade xo

    I have seen these Stila Magnificent Metals eye shadow around but never knew how they really performed! I wouldn’t have expected the texture to be watery and wet, but you can kind of see it from your swatch. The metals look so lovely and would be great topped onto an eyeshadow look!

    I have two shades (Diamond Dust and Rose Gold Retro) and they’re bloody amazing aren’t they? I’ve got my eyes on Ballet Baby or the mermaid ones next but without a discount code they’re a bit too pricey! So beautiful.
