While browsing in Sephora the other day, a beautiful, shimmering product caught my eye. Everyone that knows me knows that I love anything that sparkles or shimmers! Stila just launched their new summer colors for their Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow! At first, I thought it was just a sparkle that is applied over your desired shadow, but after I read the instructions, I realized it came with a kit that contains an eye primer and mixing tray. I thought I’d give my lovely viewers a first impression on the product and show the process of applying it as well!
* Color I am wearing is Metallic Dusty Rose
I actually really like this product! At first, I was hesitant because the kit and application seemed like a difficult and tedious process, but I was able to find a video by Sephora on Youtube promoting the product and showing methods of application! There are two ways of applying: one mixing in the tray and the other applying the primer to the lid and then applying the shadow separately. They do sell a brush intended to make application easier, but I found using my index finger was super easy and fool proof.
This is a product that you may have to play around with, depending on the look that you want. I love the fact that the product has a buildable coverage, meaning you control how much you want to sparkle with the amount of shadow you apply. (I applied a very subtle amount to the eye on my first try!) This is great alone, but I would love to use it just on the lid with a smoky look! It is a little tricky when it comes to removing because of the loose sparkles, but I recommend using a baby oil or gentle makeup remover on the eye.
I will definitely be using this product more and give it 5 STARS! It’s definitely a fun item to use, and unlike any other shimmer pigments!
It truly brings out the sparkle in your eye!
