Stila Glitter Underground Collection - Moonlit & Starry-Eyed

By now you know that I'm a Stila girl through and through.
For years, I've counted on Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Illuminating Beauty Balm to keep my skin looking radiant. All this time later, and it's still my desert island pick.
And it's easy to look put together when you've got these beauty essentials and classics in hand.
As for eyeliners, all are not created equal, and that def goes for liquid liners. Stay all Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner however, works as hard as you do and doesn't budge, smudge or crease. Drop the mic.
Yep, Stila is all that and more. In fact, I didn't think it could get any better, and then the Glitter Underground Collection was released. Containing "modern metallics, inspired by the dazzling disco ‘70s era," the swish compendium includes:

- Matte ‘n Metal Eye Shadow Palette featuring 12 mix-and-match shades
- 11 Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadows
- Heaven’s Hue Highlighter available in 3 shades

Now before you go and worry that you're going to look like a disco ball, let me assure you. There are two ways to use this makeup:

 - add a bit of glimmer and glam to your look, because who doesn't want a little bling every now and again?
- go full-on Ziggy Stardust.

The only difference is in how much you apply and how many  products you use at once.

Take a look:

One of the dreamiest glitter shadows you'll ever use, not only goes on smooth, but dries smooth and even, as if your eyelids were just dipped in liquid metal. Oomph.
Kitten Karma is a finely crushed rose gold that delivers a iridescent lustre with pearl-esque shimmer and shine. A sheer coat is sophisticated enough for the office and formal events; lay it on for a more dramatic look that just oozes date night/girl's night feels.
It's also shockingly weightless (heavy metal it's not, thanks to a water-infused formula) and remarkably steadfast and long lasting,  so there's no need to worry about constant touch ups - just go and enjoy yourself.
You'll want to wear it each and every day, which is saying a lot - you didn't think you'd ever be this excited about glitter. Leave it to Stila to make it covetable for women our age.
I have no talent for makeup whatsoever. Stila's products, however, always make everything better  and brighter without having to be an actual MUA.

That goes for this highlighter too. With other brands, you have to tread carefully - otherwise you end up with lightning bolts of intergalactic shine, all in places it really shouldn't be (read: everywhere). 
Heaven's Hue is soft radiance in a silky, soft, featherweight powder. It doesn't sit on top of your skin like a lump; instead ultra-fine light diffusing particles emit a warm glow and radiance from within. Totally natural looking, totally magnetic.

Available in three shades (I'm rocking Kitten, a dusty gold), no one will ever know it's not just your lust for life that's got you all aglow.

And isn't the best kind of makeup - when you can't tell you're wearing any?
