Sunset Cove

I LOVE a great metallic or glitter eye. I especially love when a formula makes it so easy to create a metallic or glittery look. Enter the Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter and Glow liquid eyeshadow. These shadows are superb. I did a look once before (here) but it was a dark smokey look. Since I have purchased a few more shades since then, I thought I would post a fun updated summer look! 

This Spring Stila released their new line of shadows. They still have the original Magnificent Metals line, which were foiled shadows that came in a little pot and a little bottle of mixing medium. You would have to use the medium to help apply the shadow. Who has time for all of that, I know I don’t.

So I was very intrigued by the new liquid versions. I’ve added two more colors to my collection, Smokey Storm, a nice neutral light pewter with silver glitter and Sunset Cove, a pink with gold duo chrome.


Here you can see the pink pigment with the flash of gold. Check out my Instagram, I have a video showing how reflective this shade is! 

I decided to do a bright vibrant look with Sunset Cove. I wish I had picked up more of the duo chrome line, the Into The Blue shade is calling my name. I also incorporated a drugstore palette that I featured in a haul a while back.

I started with the lightest beigey-pink shade in the palette and buffed that in my crease, almost up  to my brow.


Next I used the vibrant purple as my crease and transition color. I was really surprised how well this blended out as well as the color pay off.


Next I applied two light layers of the Stila Sunset Cove over two-thirds of my lid (letting it dry between coats). I also applied the purple shade on my lower lash line as well as just a bit of Sunset Cove.


I used the purple shade to just blend the outer V out and to help deepen it up. I also applied a small amount of the Saphyre and Amethyst shades from the Kat Von D Alchemist palette as an inner corner highlight. I applied Lash Paradise as mascara.


All the eye shadows used.


Over all this is a pretty easy look to do. It’s really just two main shades, doesn’t get easier than that! Don’t forget to check out my Instagram to see just how reflective this shade is!

These liquid shadows really make any glittery look so easy to achieve with minimal mess or fallout. I also love the packaging, no messy pots to deal with. Easy Peasy.
