5 stars out of 5

Stila Beauty Junkie Glitter & Glow Eyeshadow is a new, exclusive rose pink sparkle shade that launched recently on Stila’s website that I absolutely had to race to buy. I’ve been trying a lot of different exclusive shades from Stila lately such as Coral Crush and Dollish in the hopes of finding a perfect coral or golden peach and sadly, I haven’t quite found what I’m looking for.

I have to admit though I’ve had a hell of a fun time trying all their latest shades out because they have been releasing some crazy good ones lately! Beauty Junkie Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow is by far the best one to date! I love, love, love this shade! You really need to add this one to your collection!

Stila Beauty Junkie Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow ($24) is by far one of the most pigmented shades I’ve tried from this collection to date. I’ve expressed some disappointment in a few of the recent shades I tried as being a bit too sheer but believe me you won’t have any issue with Beauty Junkie. This is a bright rosy pink with gold and pink sparkle. It’s a very vibrant shade and really pops on my eyes.

I’ve heard a lot of people say they struggle with this formula a bit but I’ve honestly never had an issue. I swipe on with the applicator, pat gently, and I’m good to go. The color wears great on me without creasing, fading, or migrating. I never had any chunky fall out issue either. Once the formula sets, it sets for all day wear on my drier eyes.

This formula seems a little more refined and wasn’t as chunky as some other shades I have. The shadow has a thicker gel-like consistency with quite a bit of shimmer in the mix but no chunky pieces of glitter. That’s not to say this isn’t shimmer! It is loaded with shimmer that’s for sure and not really a great pick for anyone who hates a sparkly eye look!

I really can’t rave it enough. The color is just beautiful and I can’t wait to incorporate into other looks maybe using some rose and pink eyeshadow shades from Urban Decay’s Backtalk Eyeshadow Palette as I think this shade will compliment those colors quite nicely and maybe I’ll finally fine a use for that palette after being so disappointed by it.

If you love the Stila Glitter & Glow Eyeshadow Collection I’d say Beauty Junkie is a must have to add to your stash! Totally a gorgeous shade that performed well with an outstanding color pay off.

Loves it!

Muse Approved!

Where to buy

Stila

Stila Beauty Junkie Glitter & Glow Eyeshadow is a new sparkling rose shade that launched on the brand’s recently which is $24 and 0.153 oz in size. The shade performed very well for me with great pigmentation and really pretty sparkle. I had no issues with application and the wear was fantastic with any creasing, migrating, or fall out.

Pros

  • Anyone who likes shimmer, sparkly eye looks.
  • Anyone who wants a pigmented shade of Beauty Junkie Glitter & Glow Eyeshadow that applies the way it looks in the barrel!
  • Anyone who likes no nonsense easy to apply eyeshadow (I always feel like I can apply this in a snap and look like I spent hours doing my eye look!).

Cons

  • Anyone who hates glitter, shimmer, or sparkle.
  • Anyone who struggles applying cream eyeshadow (I find application super easy but if you struggle a bit with cream shadow this might not be your formula of choice to use).
  • Only available on Stila’s website at the moment.

Who

Stila Beauty Junkie Glitter & Glow Eyeshadow is an absolutely must for fans of this formula. All the shades I’ve tried have been great thus far but I have to admit Beauty Junkie is definitely a fav of mine at the moment that really adds a nice pop of rosy pink sparkle to my eyes! Well worth a pick up if you adore this formula!

    I’d love to see you do a post with swatches of them all together in one blog. Maybe updating it as each new color is introduced. I’d love to try them but can’t afford more than one at a time. Thanks in advanced if it’s possible to do that.

      They are all swatched individually right now but will try to get a swatch of all the shades in an upcoming post!

    how does everything look good on you!?! what sort of voodoo witchcraft are you using?!? tell us your secrets!
    this color is stunning and makes your eyes pop! I have oily lids and I use a primer before applying stila glitters and it stays all day on me as well without creasing or my face looking like a one woman disco party.
