Soooooo, I have been hoping, dreaming and wishing for the longest time for ColourPop to dupe the Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow liquid eyeshadows and that day has finally arrived! ColourPop calls them Supernova Shadows because they claim to have "bottled the galaxy".
We somehow bottled up high shine liquid metal, loaded it with glitter, and created an actual supernova for your eyes. This water-infused, super longwearing liquid shadow is extremely versatile and can work for so many looks, whether you want an all over base color, a touch of glitter, or extreme metallic foil. This high coverage and high impact shadow will send you into hyperspace….no fall out included.
These retail for $7 a piece and you get 4.7g/0.17oz of product, which is more than what you get with Stila. The tubes are the same tubes as the No Filter Concealer and it has a standard paddle foot applicator.
This shade is the most metallic of the lot. It is packed with chunky glitter to give it that extra punch and make it look super foiled.
Dragon: Bright copper with pink, teal, silver and gold glitter.
I honestly did not notice the multi-colored glitter until I read the description and looked really closely. The colorful glitters are really fine but the ones that standout are the silver and copper ones. This shade applied a little bit more sheer than Walk of Fame.
Hard To Empress: Warm red with gold duochrome and silver, gold and copper glitter.
I mostly see this as a red with gold glitter but under different angles, you can catch the silver glitter. This shade is a lot more sheer than the previous two.
Firecracker: Cool-toned burgundy with gold duochrome and silver, gold and green glitter.
Again, this mostly looks like a burgundy with gold glitter. The silver glitter shows up under a different angle. The glitters in here appear as more of a antique gold as compared to Hard to Empress which looks like a brighter yellow gold. It's a very subtle difference. This shade applied sheer as well.
Moonlit: Vibrant purple with pink, turquoise and violet glitter.
This shade is quite metallic and pigmented but nowhere close to Walk Of Fame. The multi-colored glitters are very obvious with this one.
I have reviewed 2 other liquid eyeshadows from J.Cat and Holika Holika. The J.Cat shadows are a little more sheer and they come in more unicorn-esque kind of shades so they don't really look similar to the ColourPop shades. The Stila and Holika Holika ones have more similarities and resemblances so I compared what I had over here:
Stila's Violet Vixen and ColourPop's Moonlit are pretty similar in terms of base pigmentation. Moonlit has more metallic-ness to it but it looks much more crusty if left un-blended unlike Stila's which looks very even. Both shades have multi-colored glitter in them.
Holika Holika eye metal glitters instead.
