Jezebel

Stila Jezebel Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow ($24.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark copper with warm, orange undertones and a pearly sheen. It was richly pigmented and a little went a long way, and I felt like this made it easier to work with as the product never felt too much on the lid, dried down fast enough not to get into my creases, but I was still able to diffuse the edges. On me, it lasted for nine hours without creasing.

Formula Overview

$24.00/0.15 oz. - $160.00 Per Ounce

The Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow formula is supposed to have "rich, beautiful color with a high shimmer sheen, minus the glitter" (compared to their Glitter & Glow range). The formula touts "non-tacky, non-transfer" wear with "minimal fallout." Some shades were easier to work with than others; typically the ones that weren't quite as watery and yielded more coverage with less product were the easiest to apply, diffuse the edges of, and wear. They lasted between eight and ten hours on me, and most did not have any fallout.

Written in the Stars

Stila Written in the Stars Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow Trio ($25.00 for 0.21 oz.) contains three, miniature-sized glitter-tastic liquid eyeshadows (they’re about half the size of a full-sized shade). All three are also available individually in the permanent line-up, and the three here were fairly consistent with my full-sized versions; to manage the holiday deluge, I did not re-test these for wear. I love that the brand put out a set of these, as cream/liquid products typically expire faster than powders, so it can be hard to justify or partake in lots of shades at full-sized quantities and have any hope of finishing one. The three shades included seem to be good, more “universal” kind of shades, though they will be best for layering over other base colors or spread over the lid as an all-over wash of glitter. I really enjoy the effect of this formula for layering, but if you’re after them as a standalone product, you may be less enamored with them.

Value

A full-sized Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow retails for $24.00 and contains 0.15 fl. oz. or $160.00/oz. The set contains $33.60 worth of product.

Stila Eye for Elegance Liquid Eye Shadow Set ($45.00 for 0.42 oz.) includes six shades of liquid eyeshadow with three shades being part of the Shimmer & Glow finish and three from the Glitter & Glow finish.

First Impressions

Only one of the shades is a shade I’m familiar with–Smoldering Satin–so I don’t have too much food for thought at the moment. Peachy Sheen ran sheer and would definitely be better for adding glitter on top of something else rather than attempting to build it up (which does not always go well in this formula due to the amount of glitter). The three Shimmer & Glow shades seemed fairly pigmented and smooth, and they have more of a pearly-to-metallic finish so I am curious how well they’ll sit on the lid but haven’t had the chance to try them yet.

Ballet Baby

Stila Magnificent Ballet Baby Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow ($24.00 for 0.15 fl. oz.) is a soft, light pink with subtle, warm undertones and cooler, silver and pink glitter/shimmer. It had semi-sheer to medium coverage that went on fairly evenly. The lighter color made it a little easier to buff and blend out to wear as a wash of shimmer on the lid (on its own), but I think it tended to look its best patted on the inner corner (no swiping maximizes the payoff) or patted over a more opaque eyeshadow or base. Once it dried down, it lasted fairly well for eight hours with minimal fallout.

Stila says that it’s supposed to be a “long-wearing, sparkle eye shadow” in a “water-infused texture” that “dries down smoothly” with “minimal fallout.” There’s a lot to be impressed by with the formula, but there was some inconsistency in opacity and overall wateriness between shades so not all shades were equally impressive. When they’re good, they were pigmented, dried down evenly without creasing, and were long-wearing with minimal fallout. When they’re less impressive, they are more watery, semi-sheer to semi-opaque, prone to creasing as they dry down, though the wear is similar across all shades.

I felt like there was less fallout with the less blending done with them, e.g. applying directly to lid and only minimally working along the edges yielded the least fallout compared to diffusing and blending out the color with a brush. If I accidentally rubbed an eye, it seemed to interfere with the integrity of the wear completely–it was like a downhill avalanche of glitter that could not be stopped. They were easiest to use as the last step in a look, patted over eyeshadow with fingertip or swiped on with the sponge applicator for more of a “cut crease” kind of effect, or used along the lash line as eyeliner (I liked using a thin, liquid eyeliner brush to get a thinner line). They removed fairly well, but it was hard to get every last bit of glitter off the skin, though it was never painful or uncomfortable to remove them.
