If you saw my Bombshell Makeup Tutorial a few weeks ago, you’ll know I have a new favorite in eye makeup: The Stila Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow. I picked it up in Kitten because I’ve always been a huge fan of the original Stila Kitten eye shadow, (and the lip gloss that came out later by the same name!) so I figured it was the perfect color to try. As I suspected, the color was gorgeous. Stila was kind enough to send me some more shades to try, and just in time for the first day of spring: These colors are going to be perfect for the season!
Though the effect is similar, I very much prefer this formula over loose glitter or shimmer powders for a couple of reasons: One being that anything loose, most especially glitter, is far too messy to work with; this stuff stays exactly where you put it. And the fact is that loose glitter is just not that wearable! The Magnificent Metals have a more subdued glitter effect but they’re extremely high-shine, so the finish is much more beautiful than traditional glitter or shimmer. It’s aptly named, really… “Foil” is the best way to describe it.
Here are the swatches, from left to right: Metallic Pixie Dust, Metallic Peach, Metallic Rose Quartz, Metallic Lilac, Metallic Violet, Metallic Jade.
