On my last trip to Ulta, I picked up this beautiful eyeshadow in Metallic Violet by Stila. I wanted to pick up more, but the 2 I was eying, Pixie Dust and Comex Gold, were out of stock. Sad face.
Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow is a cream based eyeshadow that has an awesome multidimensional and metallic finish. There is so much light and sparkle in this eyeshadow that it definitely draws attention. It is very buildable – so you can apply one light wash of eyeshadow, or let it dry and apply more for an even bigger BAM!
Along with the eye shadow, the box also contains a mini bottle of Stay All Day Liquid Eye Primer and a mixing tray. You add a drop of primer to the tray, add some eye shadow and mix together. There is a little bit of a learning curve – I was adding too much primer at first, but now have a nice flow.
This is applied using your finger (below) or Stila’s Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow Applicator #37.
I applied 2 layers of Metallic Violet with my finger, with a heavier coat on the lid and smudging it up. The color stayed on all day. By the time I got home, it looked as fresh as when I applied it hours before.
I love how bright and metallic this eye shadow is! Add some lashes and you have an ah-mazing look for a night out. Metallic Violet is also a perfect way to rock a Radiant Orchid look for Spring!
