Stila have been killing it with their Glitter & Glow range, I adore using the products! It makes a super glittery look super easy to achieve and with virtually no mess! So when I received a gift set that had their Shimmer & Glow range in I was unsure how much I would use them. I had never really used a liquid eyeshadow. But oh my gosh, this range is just as beautiful as the Glitter and Glow!
I currently have 4 shades in the Shimmer & Glow range, each £23. The collection can be found at Marks & Spencers, Boots, BeautyBay.com and Stila.co.uk just to name a few! Shimmer & Glow are described on Stila.co.uk as;
Glow and behold! Adorn your lids with a splash of pigment-packed pearls that apply effortlessly and dry down to a high shimmer sheen.
Inspired by one of Stila’s most successful launches – Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow, NEW Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow contains the same translucent, adhesive base formula as the original Glitter & Glow, but with a smaller particle pearl, for high impact shimmering colour, minus the glitter! The lightweight, water-infused texture (over 40%!) glides on effortlessly, and dries down smoothly, locking in the pearls for maximum shimmer, with minimal fallout.
WHY WE LOVE IT
- Statement-making eyes, without the need for glitter
- Buildable colour – apply a sheer layer for a lighter, brighter look or layer for major impact
- Wear alone or under Glitter & Glow Eye Shadow for an added pop of colour 8 shimmering shades inspired by our most iconic powder eye shadow colours.
The shimmer shades I currently have in my collection are:
- Grace – rose taupe
- La Douce – a warm golden green
- Kitten – a vibrant nude pink
- Twig – warm chestnut brown
I really love this collection, they are all super pigmented. The packaging is exactly the same as the Glitter & Glow collection, which you can read a review of here. The wand applicator makes it super quick and easy to apply the shade onto the eyelid, only taking a few minutes to dry down. I like to gently blend the edges of the eyeshadow into the crease shade to make it look more blended with no harsh lines, using a small fluffy brush. Once the shade is dry it stays all day with no creasing and no smudging, but is easy to remove with makeup remover.
I have used all of the shades, with La Douce and Grace being the most used. Here are some looks I have created using these:
Overall I cannot recommend the Stila Shimmer & Glow collection enough! They are just so quick and easy to apply and I prefer using them over a foiled shadow as it doesn’t transfer onto my eyelid throughout the day. Plus they are super quick and easy to do for a festive eye look! Thank you so much for reading, what are your favourite eyeshadows to use?
