Stila Glitter and Glow Liquid Eyeshadow Swatches

Stila Glitter and Glow liquid eyeshadows are tubes of glittery liquid eyeshadows. The line was originally released as Magnificent Metals but has since been renamed to Glitter and Glow after more finishes were released. Each liquid eyeshadow comes in a rectangular tube with 4.5 mL of product and a doefoot applicator. They retail for $24.00USD. Multiple beauty retails sell these liquid eyeshadows, but only Stila’s website sells all the shades (newer shades generally start only on Stila’s site and then make their way over to other retailers).

The glitter and glow shades, as the name implies, are the most glittery of Stila’s liquid eyeshadows. However, not all have the same degree of glitter – some have chunky glitter particles while others have rather small glitter particles. Regardless of the particle size, none really need any sort of primer to apply well and stay on the eye, but glitter primer can help if glitter fallout becomes a problem.

Swatches are listed alphabetically by shade name. Swatches of the duochrome subset of this line can be found here.


Ballet Baby

Ballet Baby is a baby pink with a silver sparkle. Swatched on eyelid over bare skin without primer. The color is a very sparkly, very pale pink. It has more of a sheer base, so it isn’t as opaque as some of the other shades. The glitter particles are smaller, so it has a smoother more fluid consistency.

Bronzed Bell

Bronzed Bell is a medium warm brown with a silver and copper sparkle. Swatched on eyelid over bare skin without primer. The base color is a very warm brown but the silver sparkle makes it appear a little less warm. While it doesn’t have a sheer base, it isn’t as opaque as some of the other shades. The glitter particles are smaller, so it has a thinner consistency.
