Stila Eye For Elegance Liquid Eyeshadow Set ($45) is a gorgeous, limited edition Holiday Set to introduce you to Stila’s brand new Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows as well as reacquaint you with their amazing, incredible, terrific Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows.
As you may know, recently Stila released a whole range of Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows but prior to that happening they introduced the Eye For Elegance Liquid Eye Shadow Set. You might remember when I originally wrote about this set I had said that they would probably release a line of Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows for Spring 2018. I wasn’t too far off as they did in fact release them but a little earlier than Spring!
I fell in love with the Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow formula when they originally introduced them but those aren’t really a formula for shimmer hates. They are packed with gorgeous glitter and sparkle! Now, if you weren’t into all that glitter you might just end up loving the Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows which contain a hell of a lot less shimmer. These are a more traditional cream eyeshadow that’s packed with intense pigment and the best way to try them is in this Stila Eye For Elegance Liquid Eye Shadow Set.
Stila Eye For Elegance Liquid Eye Shadow Set comes with three shades of the new Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows in Kitten, Grace, and Twig as well as the Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows in Peachy Sheen, and Smoldering Satin (my favorite shade). These are 0.07 oz each and have an attached sponge applicator for application.
I’ve discussed the Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow formula in the past I’ll recap some of my review hear. This formula is a mix of chunky pearl and glitter particles with a light texture that applies very easily on my lids without creating a mess. The blending process is very smooth and I have no fall out during the application nor during the wear with these shadows. It isn’t a formula that’s tacky or sticky and you have plenty of time to blend and play before it dries down. It’s a lot of glitter here but I get so many compliments when I wear these. They are just outstandingly pretty and light up my entire eye. With the Holidays arriving shortly they’ll be ideal for Holiday parties and evenings out! I have no issues with the formula migrating or creasing either. Once it sets it stays around without moving or creasing plus it removes easily at the end of the night.
If you’re feeling extra frisky you can use these as an overcoats of sorts on top of the new Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows which I did with some of my looks below but they work just as well all by themselves. The main difference between the formulas is most definitely the amount of glitter they contain. You get much more of a refined shimmer with the newer formula where as the older is pure sparkly glittery joy.
Speaking of the new formula….!
Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow is delightful! Just as wonderful as the original with more pigmentation and a creamier texture. These are a more traditional cream eyeshadow formula with a thick formula that blends easily onto lids and packs on super color. They are quite saturated and intense with a refined, easy to wear shimmer that can be boasted up if you want to add a little of the Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow on top. I had no issues with application or blending, it was a piece of cake and the finish was smooth and even on my eyes. They also wore extremely well on my drier eyes without primer for a solid 10 hours without creasing. All in all, an excellent cream eyeshadow formula that performed beautifully and had excellent color pay off.
Needless to say, the Stila Eye For Elegance Liquid Eye Shadow Set is absolute joy. Not only is it Muse Approved but also, one of my top favorite Holiday gift sets this year. It has an excellent range of colors for sparkly or subtly shimmery eye looks that will get you through the Holiday season looking fab.
I can’t recommend this set enough.
