Stila’s latest addition to their Liquid Eyeshadow range introduces glitter, called Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow ($31 CAD). Both the Shimmer & Glow and Glitter & Glow products are the same price, come in similar packaging and offer an easier way to apply metallic or glittery cream shadows in a way that is not messy and delivers a high shine impact.
I have the shade Kitten Karma from the Glitter & Glow line. I never use glitter because it’s so high maintenance to use (applying glitter glue, then the glitter, dealing with the fall out and waiting for it to dry whilst trying to blend out the edges on top of the glue).
So in my first dabble with glitter, I have to say that I realize what I have been missing out on all this time!
The formula is a bit thin, it almost feels watery and cooling but it’s not runny. This is almost the perfect consistency for a product like this. This has enough glitter in the product and layers well, delivers impact and blends out beautifully. The shade Kitten Karma is a gorgeous champagne with sliver and gold micro-glitter to it. Once wet, you have the most ability to blend out the edges, but once this sets if you try and move the product around you’ll get the glitter fall out on your cheeks (but the base colour stays in tact).
If you’re going to a wedding or an event where you need a knockout makeup look, this is an easy choice (instead of spending so much time working with shadows to amp up the intensity), this will not disappoint.
Love the formula, shade, finish and intensity. If you have an upcoming event this is the perfect shade to go shopping for. It’s beauty swatched approved!
