You know my obsession with glitter has always been strong and since glitter is making a comeback, I couldn’t be any happier! One of the latest glittery collections to blow me away has been Stila’s Magnificent Metals Liquid Eyeshadows!
You might have heard of a collection that came out a few years ago from Stila and seen the review I did for the original Magnificent Metals, which came in a pot but were at times a bit chunky and difficult to work with. Well they launched a new collection with the same name but in a liquid eyeshadow formula that’s packed with tons more sparkle. The Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows is a long wearing blend of pearl pigments and glitter with a lightweight, water-infused texture that glides on effortlessly and dries down smoothly that locks in for maximum lustre and sparkle with minimal fall out. There are 10 shades available in the permanent collection with more to come that are available at both Shoppers Drug Mart and Sephora. My obsession has led me to collect 7 out of the 10 shades.
Price: $31 ea. / 0.15 oz / Available now at Shoppers Drug Mart & Sephora
Top Row from L-R: Bronzed Bell – bronze w/ silver & copper sparkle, Diamond Dust – sheer silver w/ multicolour sparkle, Rose Gold Retro – rose gold w/ silver sparkle, Gold Goddess – sheer gold w/ silver sparkle
Bottom Row from L-R: Kitten Karma – champagne pink w/ silver & copper sparkle, Smoky Storm – greyish taupe w/ silver sparkle, Violet Vixen – violet & blue sparkle
While all of the shades look similar in their tubes, some of them come out a little differently so it’s important to know what you’re looking for before you buy. Diamond Dust and Gold Goddess have no colour aside from their sparkle and shades like Kitten Karma and Smoky Storm have a semi opaque colour underneath their sparkle. If you’re a glitter fanatic like me, it won’t matter but if you’re looking for colour as well as sparkle, then you’ll want something more pigmented like Bronzed Bell and Rose Gold Retro. I found that Violet Vixen’s sparkle is finer than the rest so it gives a nice lustre to your eyes rather than full out sparkle. These shadows don’t budge once they’re set in place but be ready when you take them off! You need a good wash cloth that you don’t mind being covered in glitter as you try to remove every last bit of sparkle from your face. You can also go over your face with some tape to collect the glitter if you want every last bit of it off but for me a little glitter never hurts 😉 I love shades like Diamond Dust, where I can put it over anything and it doesn’t really alter the colour underneath and Kitten Karma is obviously a beauty and perfectly brightens up any neutral eye I create. I love that they stay put and that shade offers something special. You can layer it on for some hot disco ball eyes or you can add just a touch for some lowkey shimmer. I will be buying the rest of them and getting my hands on the new Mermaid inspired collection which has my name all over it, so stay tuned for that review!
