Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow- Is it Worth the Splurge?

From top to bottom: Kitten Karma, Smoldering Satin & Tulip Twinkle

Over the holiday season in 2018 Stila released a mini trio of their Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows. The set was $25.00 and is currently still available on the Stila website on clearance for $15.00 but it is limited edition. You can buy each of the shades that were included individually. Each full sized eyeshadow will cost a whopping $24.00 apiece… that’s a lot for ONE eyeshadow. This set enabled me to try out the Glitter & Glow Eyeshadows because I just wasn’t willing to spend the full price for one of them. The shades included were Kitten Karma, Smoldering Satin and Tulip Twinkle. I’m going to review each shade, show you how it looks on the eyes and let you know if I think that full price is worth it.

*You may notice that some information is copied for each of the eyeshadow reviews. I did this in case you’re only interested in reading about one specific shade.

Kitten Karma

Kitten Karma has a very pale pink base with silver glitter. It was my least favorite of the three but it’s still lovely. It’s perfect for more natural looks because the base shade is so pale. This did slightly sting my lids when first applied but that went away. I did notice slight glitter fall out and transfer but that’s the same for all three and it wasn’t anything terrible. It dried on the eyelids pretty fast so you want to work quickly. The glitter actually stayed in place remarkably well throughout the entire day. I applied this by swiping it on with the applicator and then lightly blending with my finger. It was a very easy and quick application process. I do recommend using a regular powder eyeshadow under all three or they can look patchy on the lid.

Smoldering Satin

Smoldering Satin has a taupe base with silver glitter. It’s absolutely beautiful and probably my favorite of the three. This did slightly sting my lids when first applied but that went away. I did notice slight glitter fall out and transfer but that’s the same for all three and it wasn’t anything terrible. It dried on the eyelids pretty fast so you want to work quickly. The glitter actually stayed in place remarkably well throughout the entire day. I applied this by swiping it on with the applicator and then lightly blending with my finger. It was a very easy and quick application process. I do recommend using a regular powder eyeshadow under all three or they can look patchy on the lid.

Tulip Twinkle

Tulip Twinkle has a rosey pink base with gold glitter. It’s basically tied with Smoldering Satin as my favorite. It was the only one of the three to not sting my eyelids at all. I did notice slight glitter fall out and transfer but that’s the same for all three and it wasn’t anything terrible. It dried on the eyelids pretty fast so you want to work quickly. The glitter actually stayed in place remarkably well throughout the entire day. I applied this by swiping it on with the applicator and then lightly blending with my finger. It was a very easy and quick application process. I do recommend using a regular powder eyeshadow under all three or they can look patchy on the lid.

Do I think these eyeshadows are worth the full $24.00 apiece? No. They are beautiful, long lasting and easy to work with but they’re just not so mind blowing that I can justify that price. I DO recommend, however, that you grab one of these mini sets whenever they’re available. If you’ve tried these before I’d love to know what you think about them! Thanks for reading and have a great day!
