We Should Start a Petition for Stila Matte Cream Eyeshadows

Much to my delight there is yet another Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow Vault that launched for Spring. This one is called the Stila Stellar Gaze Liquid Eye Shadow Vault and it contains 12 full-size shades for $195. I purchased the Stila Starry-Eyed Liquid Eye Shadow Vault which launched for Holiday 2017 and I DO NOT regret the purchase in the least. Stila has proven time and time again that the formula of their Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadows and Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow is incredible.

I’m sure you’re tried of my ravings about this or maybe not as I know for a fact many of you are absolute fans of this formula.

It’s weird because I am every so slightly off my shimmer eyeshadow stage of life. I tend to navigate towards matte shadows a lot more lately. Don’t get me wrong, I still love me shimmer but I notice that I use it a lot less lately. But Stila’s formula? That’s the exception to the rule. It’s gorgeous. Really a light up your eyes formula that’s stunning. I find the formula easy to apply, blend, and it looks like a million bucks on my eyes. Recently, they introduced the newer Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow formula which contained less glitter and more color. It is equally as wonderful as the original.

In this new vault they have separated a few shades and put them in a new grouping and called them Glitter & Glow Duo Chrome Liquid Eye Shadows. These are shades they introduced over the last several months starting with the mermaid inspired shades from last year.

They also recently released the new Glitter & Glow Highlighter inspired by this formula but I have to admit I think we should start some sort of petition and get them to introduce a matte version of this wonderful eyeshadow formula. I’d totally buy all the shades. I need a nice brown shade, a dune or terracotta shade, perhaps a nice light dusky rose, the possibilities are endless. I’d honestly buy them all if Stila puts them out.

Let’s hope Fall 2018 that Stila makes my wishes a reality.

Would you buy a matte version of this formula?

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Absolutely agree! I would buy mattes instantly, and in shades you mentioned as well. Let’s hope they see this.

    They would have to be different from (better than) the current offerings from Bare Minerals, Nyx, and Butter London, but yes, I’d like to try liquid mattes. Just not the same ol’ same ol’ warm neutrals!

  • Sandra

    YES! Preach!

    I’m well past the age (ahem) for shimmery, glittery eyeshadow. I wish more cosmetic companies would introduce matte selections…I’ve stocked up from the ones who have (Urban Decay, Smashbox, Tarte, etc.) I’d love to see a cream matte collection!

    Oh my goodness, that texture without shimmer would be amazing! I wouldn’t mind if they had some that were a little shiny/glossy without the shimmer.

    I have for the first time in my life, actually used a shadow up, with one of the glitter shades, kitten karma. I just ordered a second, and am thinking about what shimmer shade I’d want.

    • Isabella Muse

      oh yes! ;-D please! I love the shimmer but a few without would be awesome ;-D

  • Katzkann

    Mattes! I would buy them in a heartbeat. I don’t need the shiny, glittery eyeshadow. Generally, they tend to bother my eyes. I can wear Colourpop super shock but sadly most of the colors aren’t matte, nor are they anything other than the same old. Stila would present possibilities.

    i’m not sure i would buy a matte. i guess it would depend on the color and whether it would hold up as well as theses do. if i’m dreaming i wish they would let you do a pick three or a pick 5 at a discount. i don’t really buy a lot of makeup but i never buy these one at a time.
