Good thing it’s so gorgeous with a ridiculously long name like that! Like many other makeup lovers, I have a love/frustration kind of thing going on for these new eyeshadows.
Sure, it’s the most gorgeous eyeshadow I own. But, it’s finicky and takes some practice and TIME.
Do NOT attempt this if you are in a hurry or don’t want to deal with a little clean up and fall out.
It’s best to use fingers as opposed to a makeup brush with these shadows. The set comes with a 0.07 oz pot of shadow described as a “buildable high metallic cream.” I would consider it more of a mousse texture. It’s very lightweight and soft. You also get 0.06 oz of stay all day liquid eye primer in a little dropper bottle and a little round tin tray for mixing the shadow and primer.
The shadow is very pigmented, so I would suggest starting with a small amount and adding more as necessary. Apply to your eyelid with your finger and build slowly depending on if you want a little sparkle and shine or some seriously opaque bling on your lids!
There are a few other colors I’d love to try, but the price point is a bit of a turn off. I know it’s not just the shadow you’re getting, but at $32 per shadow, who can afford to experiment?! That said, this is a unique product and I do like it.
Have you tried any of the Stila Magnificent Metals eyeshadows? What did you think?
