What's on my Face? Stila Magnificent Metals

I know I know.. for someone who doesn't wear eyeshadow this is quite out there but sometimes just go hard or go home right? I picked this Stila shadow up in my local TKMaxx for £2.99..yes £2.99! I had never seen this shadow before and I googled it whilst I was in the store only to find that this retails for £33.50. £33 whole British pounds for one eyeshadow?! Although the foiled finish is really stunning I don't think I could ever bring myself to spend that much on one product. So after I realised how much of a bargain this was I had to get it!

These shadows are described as being a revolutionary cream-to-powder texture with a magnificent foil finish. The shadow comes with a 'stay all day liquid eye primer' which you can either mix with the eyeshadow or apply it directly your lids and then adhere the shadow to it. I prefer the latter method as it seems to minimise the amount of product that transfers above my eyelids. If you don't use the primer, it applies a little chunky and the glitter moves around quite a bit. If you have hooded eyes or limited lid space like me I don't know how this is actually supposed to stay put on your eyelids.. but then again I might just be applying it incorrectly *welp*... I do think a glitter glue could work very well however. All in all I really really love the colour though! You can also build it up for a more intense look or apply it with your fingers for a slightly softer pop of colour.
