This year I have been enjoying the gorgeous products released by Stila and today I have a review on the Metal Foil eye shadows which I have wanted to try since they were first launched. If you find yourself browsing the makeup isles at Shoppers Drug mart, Murale or Sephora keep your eyes peeled for these vivid beauties and when you swatch them be warned that you will probably become as obsessed as I am!
The shadows provide versatile wear from a light wash of color to bold, heavy metal coverage that is striking and gorgeous! The shade I have – (Metallic Jade) also contains glistening glitter particles for eyes that standout and sparkle! These shadows can definitely create festive looks for the upcoming holiday season, glam parties and events.
How to use:
The Stila liquid eye shadow primer helps the metallic finish adhere to skin, enhance the color and prolong its wear. To use simply mix a drop of primer and a dab of the shadow in the metal mixing tray and gently press the mixture to the center of the lids with your finger.
I am not a big fan of using my finger to apply my shadow but because of the texture a brush doesn't quite pick up the color or transfer it to the lids. I put a drop of primer on the back of my hand, dabbed my finger into in and then spread it evenly over my eyelids. I then used a sponge tip applicator to apply the shadow in one direction from the inside out. The color is very buildable and layering it as I have done increases the intensity for a dramatic effect. When you first touch the shadow in the pan you may notice that it is a bit chunky, but when you break through the top layer the shadow underneath is a textured cream and can be lifted out and smoothed over the skin quite easily.
On my lips I am wearing the Stila Stay All Day Vinyl Lip Gloss in the shade 90 Vinyl Nude. For a full review click - HERE.
I always prefer color that I can build-up and I love the finish and bold effect of these shadows! I had no issues with fading throughout the day and the primer prevents creasing, smudging and fall-out.
The Metal Foil shadows retail for $42.00 each and you can pick up the primer for $26.00.
