Want to go with glittery eyelids when joining friends and family to celebrate the holidays this season? Stila’s Aura Alight Glitter and Glow set has six beautiful, sparkling shades for eyes and face that are evening out or gala worthy.
I was searching for a sparkly topper for eyeshadows, and found these. The set actually has two highlight colors and four eyeshadow shades.
The consistency of all of them is about the same and I think they can be used interchangeably. However, the two that are meant to be highlighters are more sheer and are the only two that are multi-chromes and multi-dimensional in hue.
Here is a breakdown of the shades with swatches to follow:
2 Glitter & Glow Liquid Highlighters:
- MONARCH—sheer, pinkish, iridescent white with pearl micro-glitter
- PAINTED LADY—sheer metallic copper with gold micro glitter
4 Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows:
- DIAMOND DUST—silver and gold glitter
- KITTEN KARMA—bronze with pearl glitter
- PLUM ON—violet mauve with silver glitter (this one has the most vivid color overall and the least sparkle)
- SMOKY STORM—grayish mink with larger silver glitter
btw—Personally, I think they should have named this last one ‘Smoke Show’ instead. 😉
Now, the arm swatches (first in indoor light, then below that in outdoor light):
And, this is MONARCH as an over eyeshadow topper (which is a bit hard to see, but it adds a light iridescent sparkle that is truly lovely):
I’ve noticed that there is a set of just 3 of these via Sephora called 3D Dazzle Mini Glitter & Glow Liquid Shadow Set that is currently on sale (with Golden Girl, Perlina, & Kitten Karma), and Sephora also has some individual ‘limited edition’ Glow & Glitter tubes too.
Even though these have no Parabens, Sulfates or Phthalates, they do contain glitter so be careful if you have sensitive skin as they could cause some irritation.
Merry Christmas, Gorgeous!!! Let me know if you have a sparkly or bright holiday makeup go-to that always brings your look up to party level. 😉
Wakeup and makeup!
