Stila Sparkle Liquid Eyeliners Swatches, Photos, Reviews

Stila’s Sparkle Eyeliners apply smoothly and evenly with excellent color payoff that requires no layering or build-up. I showed swatches of the very first stroke, then a second and third–never going back to get more product. The sponge applicator on these is thin and tapered to a dull point with enough give to easily maneuver around the curves of the lid but not so much that it is floppy. The formula is budge-, smudge-, and water-proof, as advertised, and removal went easily with both Lancome Bi-Facil and Make Up For Ever Sens’Eyes. As you remove, the product will flake off, akin to tube mascaras.

Wet ‘n’ Wild Sweet as Candy Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio

Wet ‘n’ Wild Sweet As Candy Eyeshadow Trio ($2.99 for 0.12 oz.) is like a palette of Neopolitan ice cream! There is a bright, warm white with a metallic sheen; medium-dark chocolate brown with a metallic sheen; and berry-tinged pink with subtle yellow undertones with a metallic sheen. I found all three shades to have a higher level of sheen, more so than the typical frost.

Guerlain Terre Indigo Eyeshadow Palette

Guerlain Terre Indigo Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.32 oz.) contains “a vibrant orange, intense blue, deep brown, and lighter brown” that are “speckled with a pale golden tone.” Guerlain says that they can be used together or separately. The palette includes two sponge-tip applicators and mirror on the inside. It’s housed in a blackened bronze that shimmers in the light a bit.

theBalm Risque Renee Eyeshadow

my thoughts on the formula: theBalm’s eyeshadows are soft, silky smooth, and packed with pigment. They apply evenly, blend out beautifully, and aren’t powdery at all (sometimes a side effect of really soft eyeshadows). I find they are so easy to use, because they apply without fall out and blend with other shadows effortlessly. Worth noting, too, is individual eyeshadows come with 0.12 oz., which is just over double the average eyeshdaow–and at a rather affordable price tag.

Milani Drenched in Gold Baked Eyeshadow

Milani Drenched in Gold Baked Metallic Eyeshadow ($7.49 for 0.05 oz.) is a softened yellow gold with a metallic sheen.  It reminded me a lot of MAC’s Goldmine, which is a staple eyeshadow for me.  I liked the way this looked both wet and dry–there really wasn’t much of a difference-so it is more convenient to use.  It applied smoothly and had good color pay off with no fall out.

Giorgio Armani Sweet Fire (7) Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow

This is a product that lives up to its claims–it wears all day without budging, creasing, or fading–and blends as well on its own as it does with other eyeshadows (or on top of an eyeshadow base). Giorgio Armani describes the Eyes to Kill Intense formula as neither powder nor cream but a hybrid that creates a “smooth, lasting color film” that can be applied wet or dry.  Giorgio Armani explains, “Each shade is intensified with a second pigment for a multi-dimensional effect. In just one swoop, create a wet, shimmering smokey eye … Base color covers eyelid, and second pigment adds drama to the contour.”
