Stila Cosmetics Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow in Kitten Karma12:00 PM
The spring releases are rolling in. Well, stampeding would be a more accurate verb. There are all sorts of new products popping up at Sephora, Ulta, and drugstores. One of the most impressive products so far is Stila's new liquid eyeshadow. These take shimmer and shine to an entirely new level. This is the most intense, metallic, glittery eyeshadow I have ever seen.
Kitten Karma is a stunning mix of copper, silver, and champagne. It has a beautiful copper tone to it, so even if the silver glitter wears off (it hasn't in my experience), you will still be left with a beautiful color on your eyes.
The consistency of this liquid shadow is very thin and it almost feels like water when you are applying it. As a result, it applies beautifully and effortlessly. The pigment and color payoff is outstanding. It is unlike any other eyeshadow I have ever tried, liquid or powder. You only need one thin layer for opaque coverage, which is pretty amazing. I expected there to be a little bit of fall out because of the silver chunks of glitter, but I haven't experienced any fallout. All of the elements of the shadow (color, glitter, and shine) mesh so well together. Another area of concern for me was the staying powder. I expected to see a ton of creasing by the end of the day, but much to my delight and surprise, it looked like I had just applied it. Another great thing about it is the quick dry time. It dries in a matter of seconds. If you apply this all over your lid, it won't transfer to your crease or brow bone like other liquid or cream shadows can.
The above shot was taken in direct sunlight without flash and you can really see the glitter reflecting.
The applicator is also nice. It has a paddle shaped applicator, but it is very precise and it has enough give to navigate the contours of the eyes.
The Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows are $24 at Sephora. They are currently only available for VIB Rouge and VIB members. There are 8 colors available and I plan on getting one more at least. These are absolutely beautiful and the formula is amazing.
