All Fired Up

Stila All Fired Up Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow Trio ($25.00 for 0.21 oz.) includes two copper hues and a lighter, white gold shade. Two shades were quite sheer and would work best for layering or a soft wash of sparkle, while Burnished Sienna had a bit more coverage (and was more buildable) and could be used visibly as a standalone product. If you tend to pick up this formula to add sparkle or brighten an area, I think they work well for those purposes. If you’re looking for a punch of color and sparkle, you’ll likely find these lacking. I don’t find that Stila does a great job of setting expectations, as their promotional imagery shows full coverage for most of the Glitter & Glow shades with a couple (like Diamond Dust) as specifically sheer. The reality is that most shades are sheer to semi-sheer with the occasional shade (like Molten Midnight) that is more pigmented.

Sunset Fire

Sunset Fire is a light-medium copper with warm, orange undertones and flecks of gold glitter. It had sheer color payoff that was hard to build up, but the base definitely had a copper tint to it and does transform the color of any products it is layered over (may be more or less of a change depending on that the base color was!). Very occasionally, Stila will actually describe a Glitter & Glow shade as sheer, but they did not do so with this one. With the sheerness, I would recommend this for layering or for all-over application as the base was fairly translucent and didn’t seem to go on unevenly when blended out with a fingertip. The liquid eyeshadow wore well for 10 hours with a smidgen of fallout over time.

Formula Overview

$24.00/0.15 oz. - $160.00 Per Ounce

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.

Follow the Sun

Follow the Sun seemed to have a nearly translucent base (possibly gold-tinted but totally lost on my skin) with a mix of platinum and gold glitter. It had sheer coverage–wish Stila would see fit to aptly describe the sheerness in this range, as they have for at least a couple of shades in the past–that did not build up. I would recommend this shade to be used for layering over another eyeshadow to add minimal color transformation but maximum finish amplification with the addition of a fair amount of glitter. The texture was lightweight, thin, and watery, but the sparkles/glitters seemed to distribute well across my skin. It lasted well for 10 hours with slight fallout over time.

Burnished Sienna

Burnished Sienna is a medium-dark, reddish copper base with flecks of large, gold glitter and finer copper sparkle. It had medium color payoff in a single layer, which I could also sheer out or build up to more opaque coverage (make sure to wait for the first layer to dry down fully). The glitter/sparkles spread evenly and dispersed well as I applied the product. The consistency was watery with a quick dry down but applied best with a secondary tool rather than its include doe-foot applicator. Once the liquid eyeshadow dried down, it stayed on well for 10 hours with a smidgen of fallout over time.

Already ordered it. Everything about these is perfect for the way I use them. I like to do my eyes and then put these somewhere on the lid. If they’re opaque I might use them as liner. I totally needed them to make these in warm and neutral colors!

I really, REALLY wish Stila hadn’t discontinued their wonderful single eyeshadows and “replaced” them with this growing line of glitter and shimmer shadows, many of which are just not wearable for me or are of such dubious quality – I mean, Follow the Sun looks almost invisible except for the glitter.

It’s interesting that they discontinued and never replaced with something more comparable! I also think that the Glitter & Glow range is really, really being milked.
