Stila was the brand to launch a shimmer revolution after the 90′s era of neutrals and overly matted and powdery skin was over. Before Stila, shimmer wasn’t shimmer, it was chunky, messy glitter and only found in products geared toward tweens. Adding shimmer to makeup in the subtle way they did, allowed for more blendablity, and ease of application adding light and a youthful quality.
Kitten eyeshadow was their first cult classic because the sunny, shimmery, neutral color looked great on everyone. Stila has since expanded their signature Kitten color to include a Smudge Pot, Lipglaze, and my personal favorite- their Silk Eye Shadow Wash.
Stila describes the consistency of the wash as liquid-to-powder, but I’d say that the silky glaze of gorgeous sheen is almost too unique for words. It still maintains the integrity of the Kitten color, but with maybe more wearability since it’s a different kind of shimmer- not powdery, just like liquid metal that lightly coats your skin giving a glowing finish.
I use mine as a base coat for a light or medium toned powder shadow that I pat on top for more of a glistening effect, and also as a highlighter on top of the cheek bones.
You’ll find yourself addicted too if you can actually find it in stock. I nabbed the last one at Sephora, and they’re sold out online and apparently not shipping for a while so grab if you see it.
