Are you more often than not let down by how sheer some shimmer/metallic shadows appear on your lids? Annoyed at having to waste your setting spray on wetting brushes to intensify your shadows?

I won’t blame you if you’re already in LOVE with this product. When the Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow was just released, it received quite a bit of hype from social media and influencers. This time, I believe the hype is LEGIT. This stuff is truly amazing. Every single time I apply or swatch it I am constantly amazed at its beautiful pigmentation, formula and results on my eyes.
Prior to using this to add glitter to my eye makeup, I relied on the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner. Don’t get me wrong. I still love the Urban Decay one and do use it from time to time. I personally think both products excel in their own ways, and its evident in their names.

Since it’s called the Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner, the Urban Decay one works great as an eyeliner or an eyeliner topper. Its fine tip applicator makes it most suitable for precise glitter application, be it on your upper or lower lashline or inner corners. Though this can be used over your entire lids, it will definitely take multiple coats for it to reach a desirable opacity. Not that the glitter itself is sheer in pigmentation, but the applicator is too fine to deposit as much product as you would like for your entire eyelids.
Now the Stila one on the other hand, since it’s labeled as a liquid eyeshadow, indeed performs like an eyeshadow, only in liquid form with an accompanying applicator. As you can see from the image above, the applicator resembles those we get in liquid lipsticks and glosses. This definitely covers a larger surface area and I am not kidding when I say one swipe is enough to cover your entire eyelids. The opacity and pigmentation of the Stila liquid eyeshadows are beyond what I’ve experienced so far. They just wow me. You can also use this for more precise application (e.g. lower lashline or inner corners) but you might have to do a little bit of maneuvering with your hand position and the applicator or even possibly use a fine liner brush to apply the product.
I am not crazy for glitter, I don’t normally gravitate towards glitter/shimmer/metallic eyeshadows but the Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow has definitely pulled me onto the glitter track. I’ve loved it every single time I used it, it’s so easy to apply and it makes you look like a million bucks, trust me! So why not give this a try!
