Today I wanted to share my Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows review. These are new-to-me liquid eyeshadows that are made to enhance any eyeshadow look. Stila claims the Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows are long wearing, a blend of pearl and glitter, and they’re supposed to give you maximum sparkle with minimal fallout. Stila sent me 4 shades and I bought 2 of the limited edition duochrome shades.
PR + purchased by me.

Stila recommends applying one coat directly along the lash line and center of the lid, use your finger or a firm brush in a tapping motion to blend edges and set. Wear alone or over eyeshadow.
The Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows have a nice paddle-shaped brush to make application easy. You’re also getting a good amount of product! They’re .15 oz. I like the square packaging shape, too.
What I didn’t like about the liquid eyeshadows was if you touched or blended them too much, you’d end up with a lot of glitter fall out.
I’ve experimented a lot with these and the best way to use them, in my humble opinion, is to layer them on top of eyeshadows or eyeliner. These are basically an eyeshadow / eyeliner topper, more than an eyeshadow to wear on their own. Some colors you may be able to wear on their own, but I think they all look best layered. They’re similar to the Urban Decay Liquid Moondusts in that respect. (See my swatches here)
I personally love layering them to add dimension to a look. You can also mix them with a bit of Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy or UD All Nighter Spray for extra hold.
I found as long as I applied them last, tapping them onto my lid or using a small brush to get them exactly where I wanted them, everything was fine. They’d stay on as long as my primer lasted. When it came time to remove them, they came off pretty easily overall. However, I swear I had a few stray pieces that clung to the base of my lash extensions and just did not want to come off!
If you’re looking for a way to make your eyeshadow looks more unique, more multidimensional and fun, you should give the Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows a try. If you don’t like glitter, you’re going to want to skip these.

They’re so pretty! I wish I could wear glitter. On my oily skin, it just makes me look more shiny! I could probably use a dot of it in the middle of my lid.
Firstly, I’m so glad that Stila is now CF because they are coming out with some great stuff. I really love this trend I’ve seen this Spring of products that allow you to create multi-dimensional, multi-tonal look-I’ve seen it with highlighter(with the ethereal shades too, different texture, dimension), and this is a gorgeous way to add dimension to your shadow look, I totally agree. I love the “molten” effect-I really love the purple toned shades! Violet Vixen, Sea Siren are really gorgeous and Sea Siren is so beautiful on you!!! I do like Molten Midnight as well…Now that I’ve learned how to incorporate glitter in a beautiful way, it can totally amp up your look. I like to do the same and keep it near the lashline and “tap it on” to finish a look(after creating an eyeshadow look that’s complementary)-I’m planning on picking up All Nighter Spray anyway, so that’s perfect!

I bought Diamond Dust during the Sephora VIB sale and I now need them ALL.
How well do they hold up through the day? I’ve used some similar products in the past that have ‘cracked’ after a few hours.
I only own one and ughhhh wish I had more! They’re so pretty! I also experience fallout if I try too much blending so I try to keep that minimal.
