Now if you’ve read my blog much before you can probably answer the question in my title without having to read this post but I thought I’d write about these truly unique liquid eyeshadows anyway.
Stila seriously seem to be killing it recently, especially after seeing the mermaid liquid eyeshadows which are set to release soon, I can’t wait to grab one of the pink and gold versions and feel like it’s Glastonbury every single day *sheds a tear that I wasn’t there this year*
I bought my first one of these after hearing every single blogger rave about them so I went for Rose Gold Retro, although I ended up having to order it from Asos as all the usual places including M&S seemed to be constantly sold out. Obviously, them being sold out made me want them more and the cycle continued. Until this point I hadn’t really dabbled into Stila makeup, opting only for their skincare range but this was definitely one of the best launches of 2017.
The formula of these liquid eyeshadows are not chalky like some I’ve experienced, they’re creamy and while they don’t take long to dry they aren’t drying on your lids. I’ve had some liquid eyeshadows that almost dry so much you can feel them everytime you open and close your eyes and they feel like they’re going to crack. The Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter Eye Shadows do not do this. *Hooray*
The applicator is great and helps the product glide on easily, I’ve never experienced glitter fallout from them and they do not sit in the creases of your eyes like most liquid eyeshadows do. I loved Rose Gold Retro so much that I booked Bronzed Bell which is a more copper look as opposed to a light rosy gold colour. Other than being a little pricey at £23 per tube I can’t fault these eyeshadows and I can’t wait for the mermaid versions to come out so I can go crazy all over again. In short, yes they’re worth the hype.
Do you give into hype around products?
