What rock have you been living under if you’ve not heard of liquid glittery eyeshadows? Stila were the first brand that I heard about who did liquid eyeshadow and my love for glitter meant I needed them.
After I got them from Cult Beauty, I noticed drugstore brands were bringing out similar products so of course I got myself one of the BarryM ones to try out. The first 2 I got were from Stila in the shades Ballet Baby & Sea Siren. They were £23 each with Sea Siren being a holographic like pink, purple, silver and blue all mixed into one and then Ballet Baby is quite a simple light pink.
Both shades are really pigmented and look so shiny and pretty on the eyes, the first time I wore Sea Siren two random people complimented it! They’re quite easy to apply, I find using the applicator works fine but the only thing I struggle to do is match it with other shadows. I do apply this all over my eyelid and I like the look of it but I also like to have a crease colour as well just so that there’s more definition, but because I use these as the base colour I do struggle to make it work as a good makeup look! They have quite a few different colours and I want to try a gold coloured one. In terms of lasting power, they last all day without budging and they dry super quick too!
A cheaper alternative is the BarryM Holographic eye topper in the shade Stardust. Priced at £4.99 they’re a considerable amount cheaper than the Stila ones but the BarryM packaging is noticeable smaller. Stila have a lot more shades to pick from whereas BarryM only have 4, all space themed names. I find that the BarryM ones are a lot more pigmented and more ‘deep’ in the colour which works well over the top of eyeshadows but I do prefer Stila’s colour range! These last near enough just as long as the Stila ones and doesn’t fade or rub off throughout the day.
I think that overall, I love this trend because I love bold eyeshadows and I love glitter. Both of these products are amazing and do exactly the same job as each other and I do feel like both are worth their prices. If the BarryM did a broader shade range like Stila then I know i’d own all of the shades!
