Stila Wanderlust Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow ($24) is a new exclusive glitter cream eyeshadow shade that’s currently available on the brand’s website only. As you know from my many ravings I’m quite the fan of the Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow formula so, of course, I have to catch them all. Wanderlust launched a few short weeks ago but I held off and ended up hauling it during Black Friday at a steal.
This shade was very, very appealing as it contained both gold and pink shifting glitter. There’s something terribly magically when gold and pink get together in blushes or eyeshadows. Add to the fact that Stila has a gorgeous promo image with it on a model’s eye and I was sold.
Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow arrives in a square barrel with an attached sponge applicator for application. The formula is a cocktail of pearl and glitter particles that are suspended in a lightweight gel which apply and blend very easily. I have no fall out during application and the glitter adheres easily to my drier skin nor is there any fall out once the shadow sets plus they remove easily as well. I have no issues with migration or creasing and they stay on all day without issue. You can apply the formula on bare lids or over powder eyeshadow for more depth. If you hate glitter, this formula isn’t one I’d recommend as it has a ton of it! But if you do like it, you’ll be in heaven. This eyeshadow is ideal for Holiday party of evening out looks as the shimmer is gorgeous and really lights up eyes.
I don’t typically like duochrome or shifting eyeshadow shades. Dunno why, I just don’t like them. However, the combination of gold and pink was too beautiful not to indulge in. Sadly, it didn’t quite work out for me. It looks considerably nicer online than in reality. There is gold and pink glitter here but when I swatched it and when I applied it the color was more gold than pink. On my arm it swatches almost a sandy gold and on my eyes it looks silver. I’m so sad. I wish it was that gorgeous shifting golden pink!
Oh well! None the less, the formula still rocks my word and I will continue to by any new shades that Stila decides to throw our way.
