Most hyped liquid glitter eyeshadow: reviewed

Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow Enchantrass

When you read the caption ‘most hyped liquid eyeshadow’ your mind probably immediately turned to the Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadows… and that assumption would be correct!

If you’ve been living under a rock, these cute little sparkly tubes have gained a huge reputation within the beauty community for their long-lasting capabilities, vibrancy, pigmentation and how easy they are to apply – they’re literally the ultimate eye product for beginners!

Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow Enchantrass

What shade did I try?

When I looked at the stand with all the shades (granted, I had to stop myself from buying them all), the shade ‘Enchantress’ (one of the newest additions to the line-up) really stood out to me.

It comes as no surprise that I opted for the sparkliest, peach-tone shade with a golden fleck. I couldn’t resist adding this sparkly dream to my everyday grungy eye look (I’ll try to be less predictable in the future, sorry guys!)

How does it compare to the Stila Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eyeshadows?

There really is little comparison. I used to love the foil finish shadows, but grew to dislike them as the product transfers around the eye due to the extremely wet formulation.

In contrast, these glitter shadows are much thicker, apply to the lid smoother and just don’t budge during the application process!

What about the applicator?

Rather than having to go in with a concealer or eyeshadow primer to cut a half cut crease for this look, I actually just used the dofa applicator to carve this out straight away – the good news is, it’s so pigmented that it covers any traces of shadow below and POPS like no liquid shadow I’ve seen before!

The only one downfall I noticed was that by the end of the day the formulation looked a TINY bit tacky on my lid and had shifted a bit, but in all honesty, that day I applied it and sat outside in the blazing sun for HOURS, so I don’t think that’s a true reflection on the product!

Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow Enchantrass What’s the price-point like?

As with all Stila products, this is a little pricey – £23 to be precise. For the extreme quality of the product and how much is included within a tube, I really do recommend making the investment!

The only downfall in doing so is that, if like me, you like to play with your makeup and create different looks all the time, you’ll probably have to accept the fact that you might not use this THAT many times before it’s past it’s use by date.

Still… one flawless eye look justifies £23… right?!

  1. I recently picked up the little three pack of Kitten Karma, Diamond Dust & Guilded Goddess. I have to say I am struggling with them. I find that they never fully dry down on me and because I have slightly hooded eyes that means they transfer like crazy and after a few hours they are all in the crease and more or less gone from the lid.
    Do you have any tips on usage?
    I absolutely love the eye look you’ve created!

    1. Could you try cutting the crease above your natural crease line? This way, when you blink, it’ll be less likely to transfer. That’s what I do! I must admit I haven’t personally had problems with them staying wet, are you applying on top of a shadow or directly onto a primed lid? If you lay an eyeshadow down first it might help? Hope that helps X

      1. I’ve been putting them on top of shadows. I was thinking of maybe putting down a glitter glue first but I had kind of hoped that these would negate the necessity for that kind of fuss.
        Cutting creases is a tad beyond my skill set I;m afraid, no matter how much I watch Raw Beauty Kirsti! Ah well, I guess not every product is a winner for everyone. Lets be honest I’d probably only end up using them about once a month 😀 It’s a pity cause I was so excited for them 😦
