Review+Swatches - Stila Magnificent Metal Eye Shadows

So I’m kind of glad that December is coming to a close and my site can get back to normal again. And I can catch up on a few products that I had to put aside with the gift guide taking center stage all month. One being STILA Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow ($32 @ sephora.com). I was so curious about these after seeing the finishes of one of them in the pot a friend had. Wow! I thought if the vibrancy would show up exactly like it appeared in the pot, this could become a major player.

So how did they do? Click after the photo to find out!

Each metallic-colored shade comes with a Stay All Day Liquid Eye Primer. To apply this shadow, simple add one drop of the primer into the small metal tray they provide in the box. Then rub some of the color straight from the pot onto your index finger and mix the primer and color together in the tray. Now you are ready to press the color you just mixed together with your finger to your lid. Again, it’s important to press the color onto the lid and not rub it.

The other way to use this is to apply the primer first to the lid and then press the color onto the lid afterward. For effect, I liked this way much better.
