Eye Contact

Moira Eye Contact Diamond Daze Liquid Shadow ($8.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium copper that seemed to have a very sheer/clear base, despite seeming quite dark and coppery initially, paired with lighter flecks of silver and copper glitter.

  • Sheer coverage (marketed as opaque)
  • Thin, more watery feel
  • Became gummy as it dried down (do not blend/mess with during this stage)
  • Hard to manipulate/get even
  • Best applied as a sheerer layer, do not build up
  • Long-wearing (10 hours without creasing/fallout)

Formula Overview

$8.50/0.1 oz. - $85.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "no fallout" and will not crease while "glid[ing] on effortlessly." There did not seem to be a specific callout with respect to opacity, and the actual opacity ranged from sheer to more opaque with most being semi-sheer. The brand's promotional swatches/demo images showed the shades as fully opaque in coverage, though.

The consistency was very watery initially; thin, fluid, and on the more watery side so that it was hard to apply the product evenly. I tried to use my fingertips but found that my fingertips seemed to absorb the formula and caused it to dry down faster, which turned it into a gummy consistency--this was even harder to manipulate and even out! I would recommend a larger, flat synthetic brush or the included doe-foot applicator.

I found the formula to be particularly difficult and inconsistent to work with, and I think it would be best for someone who would use the shades as a sheer wash of color and is not particularly concerned for a 100% perfect evenness or layered over another eyeshadow. They have some tremendous sparkle and shine, so I can see some people loving them for real-life use.

Once on, they were crease- and fade-resistant and did not have fallout for 10 hours, as they did fully dry down, but they easily removed with water.

Note: some shades contain plastic (PET) glitter.

Wow! The reviews I’ve seen were really good so I went to buy one but couldn’t find a color I liked as, like most other brands, their cool toned neutral selection is virtually nonexistent. Now I’m glad I didn’t waste my money.

Yikes! If anyone is looking for a more affordable version of the Stila glitter & glows and shimmer & glows I’d suggest trying Kokie Cosmetics Crystal Fusion Liquid Eyeshadows (around $6). They are just as good imo and for reference I’ve got oily lids with creases that are sensitive. In my area they have them at Sally Beauty, but depending on your region they have them at certain drug stores and grocery stores.
