As anyone who’s experimented with a glitter eye will well know, the problem with sparkle in powder shadow form is that it tends to dance its way down your cheekbones like an oh-so-shimmery rash.
Not so these Stila liquid formulas, which glide on wet and quickly dry, while retaining their intensely glittery finish. Maximum sparkle; minimal fall-out.
There are 10 disco ball shades to choose from, but I opted for Kitten Karma, a rose gold colour based on the brand’s cult-status Kitten pressed eyeshadow.
The small sponge applicator gives you enough control to follow your lashline for a lo-fi glitter liner look, but I couldn’t stop there. Before you could say ‘too far’, I’d painted my entire lids with the stuff. As you can see here:
Too much? Never.
While this probably isn’t my colour, the finish and staying power were impressive.
