Vivid Garnet

Stila Vivid Garnet Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow ($24.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a rich, deep red with strong, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. When applied in a single layer, it was much redder and brighter than it was when sheered out, where the warmer, copper-orange base came through, so it ended up being like two different colors depending on application. The texture was smooth, fluid, and not too thin, which made it easier to work with on the lid. The eyeshadow stayed on well for 10 hours without fading or 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.

Vivid Sapphire

Stila Vivid Sapphire Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow ($24.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a rich, cobalt blue with strong, cool undertones and flecks of blue and violet sparkle. This particular shade had a more glittering finish compared to the other shades in the summer launch. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer when I applied it to my lid with a flat, synthetic brush. The consistency was thin, a touch watery, but it didn’t take too long to dry down and didn’t crease before it set. This was a shade that was better blended as it was drying down, because once it set, blending motions with a brush resulted in slight fallout. This shade lasted beautifully for over 10 hours without fading or creasing, and there seemed to be very minimal fallout over time.

Vivid Jade

Stila Vivid Jade Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow ($24.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a rich, emerald green with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was extremely pigmented but also quite fluid, so I had to be careful to apply less than I thought I might need and press it onto the lid, wait a few seconds for it to start drying down, and then work along the edges to diffuse and blend. I wouldn’t say that it was difficult to use but had some of the typical pitfalls of working with a liquid eyeshadow in that patience and experimentation are necessary. Once dry, it locked in place without fading or creasing for over 10 hours.

Beauty Junkie

Stila Beauty Junkie Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow ($24.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a meidum pink with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of gold and lavender sparkle. It had a watery texture that dried down fast enough that it didn’t settle into my fine lines, but it was hard to build it up without it getting too thick and chunky, so it ended up being medium coverage. I had the best luck applying it in small patches and waiting for it to dry as more opaque eyeliner and diffusing it with a small, flat synthetic brush on the inner tearduct for medium coverage. It wore well for 10 hours without creasing and had slight 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.
