Anyone who knows me, knows I love anything that sparkles. I have been wearing glittery eyeshadow since I was about 8 years old, but back then I used to take the glitter right from my lash line all the way to my furry 8-year-old eyebrows.
As a makeup lover, I have tried so many products, eyeshadows to be specific, and while I may have found some beautiful pallets, up until now I have never found a glitter eyeshadow that shines all night long. Normally after an hour, the shine has worn away from blinking, and I’m just left with the matt version of whatever the colour was.
Stila has created a formula that is so beautiful to put on and most importantly, stays on!
The company have brought out an impressive range of colours that are bound to contain something for everyone. I chose to purchase the “Glitter on the go collection” as it contained the 3 colours I always go to for my lid. As my eyes are greeny- blue I tend to use oranges and browns in efforts to make them “pop” and these glitters definitely do that.
Firstly we have ‘Smoldering Satin’ which is a silver colour.
Secondly, there is ‘Kitten Karma’ which is a beautiful rose gold colour.
And last but not least ‘Rose Gold Retro’ which is a copper colour.
The eyeshadows are smooth to swipe on to the eyelid. The glitter particles are large and noticeable but the consistency is lump free. After applying it to my lid, I normally keep my eyes shut for 30 seconds whilst it dries. Sometimes it takes a bit longer if I have applied a thick layer.
When taking your makeup off, although the eyeshadows are long-lasting, they are easy to wipe off when its time for bed, and will just come off with a normal cleansing method.
Every time I wear these eyeshadows I always get complimented on my eye makeup, which of course is a nice bonus. This is one of the few makeup products that I will be using and recommending for a long time as I can’t see anything better than this coming out any time soon.
