Stila Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eyeshadow in Kitten ($32) -- that name only naturally raises expectations, I mean "MAGNIFICENT METALS" and "FOIL"? I honestly thought this would be like my Makeup Geek foiled eyeshadows on crack. After swatching this, I was hella impressed. After applying this on my eyelids, I knew I'd probably never touch this thing again.

So for the price, you get a small eyeshadow, which I am willing to invest in a magnificent eyeshadow with super foiled finish. This also comes with a primer which is so small that it makes this eyeshadow look quite big.

So here's the deal. This eyeshadow on its own performs like a cream eyeshadow with weak pigmentation. The primer however gives this eyeshadow life as it intensifies the pigmentation by thousand times and gives off that super pretty foiled finish. Given how tiny this primer is though, I doubt I'll finish the eyeshadow before I finish the primer, so what then? I most definitely do not like how this looks without a primer, so I don't know. 

But honestly, that was the least of my problems with this eyeshadow because this thing crumbled and was super flaky when I applied it on my eyelid. I feel like if you want to pull off this eyeshadow, you have to first have a layer of eyeshadow that looks similarly golden/peachy and then apply this or else it will just look very patchy. In the photo, look at the right side swatch and the top part of it--Do you see that chunk just sitting there? Well when I swatched it, I thought I would be able to smooth things out like a cream eyeshadow and then that it'll all crazy gorgeous afterwards. Well I wasn't able to and I am really disappointed because as you can tell, this color is SO FREAKING CRAZY GORGEOUS!

So here's a look I created with this eyeshadow. Maybe I am doing this whole thing wrong. I am not so sure if you can tell how flaky and crumbly this whole eyeshadow is, but do you see how this eyeshadow basically accentuates the lines on my eyes and makes my eye makeup looks very... textured? From perhaps like 10 feet away this eyeshadow would look gorgeous and ultra foiled and shiny, but up close it is not at all flattering as it creases like there's no tomorrow.

Overall, Kitten is such an amazing color and foiled, it looked even more crazy beautiful. However, it really is not easy to get a smooth creamy application to the lid. With this eyeshadow I found layering to make things look more patchy and textured on this eyes, so I feel like this would look best if you apply just one coat of it with another similarly foiled/shimmery eyeshadow underneath it. Honestly I feel like even if Stila toned this down a bit to match other foiled eyeshadows (but made the application similar to those simple regular ones) I would have liked this one a lot, but for now I am better off with Stila's Kitten eyeshadow in the regular shadow pan.

Do you own this and if so what was your experience like? Any tips? Please share!
