Holika Holika Eye Metal Glitter Swatches & Review
Ever since Stila released their Glitter & Glow liquid eyeshadows, I have been searching and hoping for someone to come up with a dupe for them. They have been such a hit but they are so pricey. At $24 a tube, it is difficult to collect them all if you are on a budget.
Thankfully, my prayers have finally been answered. I chanced upon this product through a Facebook advert. I'm not even a huge koren beauty follower so I have no idea how the ad appeared on my feed. But, they are way more affordable than Stila. These are the Holika Holika Eye Metal Glitters. They just launched these recently and they go for about $9 on YesStyle. You get 3.5g of product, which is slightly less than Stila's 4.5ml.
These come in a clear plastic tube with a pink cap. The cap says "magic inside" which is soooo true. Just like the Stila Glitter & Glow liquid eyeshadows, these have a paddle foot applicator for precise application if needed. The back of the cap has some details in Korean as well as the shade name. The manufacturing and expiry dates are printed on the tube itself.
There are 4 shades in the Holika Holika range whereas Stila has a lot more. They have 11 in their permanent range and some exclusive seasonal shades.
Swatched in order from top to bottom or left to right: 01 Stella Dust - Light champagne with chunky silver glitter and smaller silver and champagne glitter. This applies slightly sheer with one layer but can be built up for more base color. 02 Rose Burst - Rose gold/light pink with chunky silver glitter and smaller silver and pink glitter. This applies slightly sheer with one layer but can be built up for more base color. 03 Burnt Orange - Copper with chunky silver glitter and smaller silver glitter. This has a very pigmented metallic copper base. 04 Fire Work - Reddish orange with fewer chunky silver glitter. This has a very pigmented metallic base as well.
These swatch great. They go on evenly and pigmented. You have quite a bit of time to work with it before it dries down. I would recommend watching my video to see the swatches under different lighting in action because IT'S GORGEOUS.
I managed to find a couple of dupes in my Stila collection. I do not own all of the Stila shades so this is what I have for now. Kitten Karma is a light champagne shade as well but it has a more pigmented metallic base as compared to Stella Dust. Rose Gold Retro is a pink just like Rose Burst from Holika Holika. Again, the Stila one has a much more pigmented base. However, the Stila ones are not as glittery as Holika Holika. Holika Holika definitely has more chunky silver glitter for an extremely sparkly effect.
I really like the beauty editorial for the Holika Holika eye metal glitters. It really suits the "Korean" eye. Over here, they've placed the eye metal glitters on the eyelid and bottom lash line with a thin winged liner. I think it's a great way to wear these glitters in a more natural way as opposed to a cut crease. They are actually a lot more glittery in person unlike in the pictures.
Both the Stila and Holika Holika ones are easily washed off with water. I had no color or glitter residue after washing my arm. Also, the glitter on both will smudge if you rub it. The base color only smudges a tiny bit so that's just something to note.
On my eyes, these can last all day with no issues because my eyelids have no creases or folds. So, I don't really think my eyes are the best testers. However, the Stila ones have received a lot of good ratings and reviews so I think that is a good indication on its performance.
I've wanted to do this post for a long time, ever since I started on my crazy collection of Adidas Superstars. I mean, I think I make quite a credible source because at one point, I owned 14 pairs of Superstars and Stan Smiths. I will be migrating my Superstar collection post over to this blog over the coming days so that you can read up on where I got them. I'm not sure if these shoes are still as popular and wanted now because I am sort of out of the loop but if you are looking to get yourself a pair of Superstars or Stan Smiths, these are a few pointers to look out for in identifying if what you are buying is real or fake. Take note that these features are mostly applicable to recent releases only. Old models and Superstar 80s are slightly different. Then again, old models are not sold in stores anymore so if you find brand new pairs elsewhere, you should be cautious. I owned a a few pairs of fake Superstars before I purchased my first original pair from the Adidas
I've been meaning to try Arctic Fox's hair dyes for a couple of years but never got around to it because I feared it wouldn't show up on dark hair. It's been coming up more and more on Instagram again so I did some research and apparently Purple Rain, Aquamarine and Poseidon do show up on dark hair. So that's what I purchased! These retail for $7.99 (4 fl oz) or $13.99 (8 fl oz) on the Arctic Fox website but I got mine off Amazon . Arctic Fox hair dyes are vegan and cruelty free. They also do not contain harsh chemicals like peroxides, ammonia and PPD. These are semi-permanent and they contain conditioning agents which means you can use these dyes as often as you want to without damaging your hair. Semi-permanent hair dyes only coat your hair so it will fade with each wash. The bottle claims that it can last up to 40 washes. These smell like grape candy so it is such a treat to use them. The instructions to use this is pretty simple. 1. Shampoo and w
Lipstick swatches are one of my favorite things to do so I gathered my Lonely Planet Cosmetics liquid lipsticks and did a swatch and review in my latest YouTube video. Earlier on this year, Lonely Planet Cosmetics announced that they were going to hold their anniversary sale as well as closeout sale because they were going to shift their headquarters to New York and rebrand to Atomic Makeup. So when the sale came around, everything was 50% off. Their liquid lipsticks were typically $15 for 8ml so they were marked down to $7.50 and some of them were even $5. The sale lasted a really long time and I ended up placing 3 separate orders with 24 shades altogether. I think they had a massive range of 35 colors but honestly, their color range isn't very impressive. It is filled with your typical reds, pinks, nudes and browns with a handful of bolder shades. Another thing I noticed when I swatched these is how inaccurate some of the shades have been represented. I remember reading a re
