Vivid Smoky Quartz

Stila Vivid Smoky Quartz Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow ($24.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a deep, golden bronze with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was intensely pigmented and had a smooth, almost cream-like texture that was thin and fluid like a liquid eyeshadow would be, but there was a bit more of an airy feel to it, which made it the easiest shade to work with out of the six new shades for summer. The eyeshadow applied evenly to bare skin, blended out nicely, and set fast enough that it didn’t crease on me while drying down but I had enough time to work with the edges. It was still going strong after 10 hours of wear.

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.

Vivid Amethyst

Stila Vivid Amethyst Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow ($24.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium purple with subtle, cool undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to a degree, but I found that applying a second layer noticeably added texture to my lid so the skin appeared wrinkled and raised. The consistency of the liquid eyeshadow was smooth, wet, and cool as it went on but then it dried down fast enough not to crease but slow enough that I had enough time to diffuse the edges. It wore well for over 10 hours without fading or creasing.

Vivid Labradorite

Stila Vivid Labradorite Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow ($24.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a deep, smoldering gray with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, thin consistency that applied evenly to bare skin while still having edges that diffused and blended without too much difficulty. The formula was easier to work with than the average liquid eyeshadow, but it wasn’t as foolproof as working with a powder eyeshadow. The texture was very fluid, thin, but not watery or prone to getting into fine lines. It lasted well for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.
