Company’s Description

Create metal eyes that mesmerize with our Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow, a striking cream-to-powder shadow with a multidimensional metallic finish. Inspired by the runway, our one-of-a-kind formula is packed with rock-and-roll sparkle to achieve a variety of effects, from a light wash of shimmer to an opaque metallic finish. It also comes with a mini Stay All Day® Liquid Eye Primer & handy mixing tray… simply prime, combine and shine!

Stila’s Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadows are cream-to-powder eye shadows with metallic finishes. Stila’s Spring 2014 Collection included 8 new shades, including Metallix Pixie Dust, which is an irridescent white gold.


Packaging: 9/10

The eye shadow comes in a small pot with a twist off lid made of reflective silver plastic. You also get a Stay All Day Liquid Eye Primer which comes in an extremely small glass bottle with an eye drop dispenser, and a metal mixing tray.

Quality: 8.5/10

Metallic Pixie Dust is a metallic white gold shade with an iridescent quality.

In the pan, this eye shadow has a bouncy formula much like MAC’s Electric Cool eye shadows. Once applied to the skin, the formula performs much the way a powder shadow would, but has more body to it. This shade consist mostly of the foiled gold shimmer without an underlying pigment. Because of this, it’s best suited for using over a colored shadow to accent it with shimmer (unless you just want shimmer on the lid). It’s a very pretty color, regardless of how you use it.

The Stay All Day Liquid Eye Primer you get in the kit is tiny and it contains an almost laughably small amount of product. Even after using it just a couple of times, it looks like the product is almost gone. Besides, at least with this shade, I didn’t see a noticeable difference in the shadow’s effect from when I used it straight out of the pot compared to mixed with the primer.

Ease of Use: 9/10

This shade works best dabbed onto the lid and doesn’t have the kind of formula that blends into the skin (ie the crease area). I had 1-2 specks of fall-out, but other than that, there was no significant cleaning up after application.

Price: 8/10

For $32.00 you get 0.07 ounces of eye shadow and 0.06 ounces of primer. Even MAC’s Electric Cool shadows–which contained the same amount of product–didn’t cost this much (only $18.50). There’s no doubt that this is an expensive eye shadow kit, though there is a primer included.
