Most Helpful Positive Review my everyday go to!!
I put this on first and then use my naked 3 pallet to blend with it. after a couple of seconds the liquid shadow dries and it's very easy to blend in with your other colors. I wear this every day and i get compliments every time. i actually found this from one of my friends, she had all of us bridesmaids wear it in her wedding and i fell in love. i immediately went to ulta and bought the rose gold. the gold colors do sell quickly (at least around my area). i do wish you got a little more product for the price but it is totally worth how beautiful it is on! i'm about to order a couple of new colors to try out!
Most Helpful Critical Review Disappointed
Vivid Sapphire is not as impressive online as it was in store. Sadly, when I got it home, it is very hard to incorporate with other shadows as it dries fast and cannot blend easily. I wanted to love it, as I have many other Stila glitters in my collection. But, for the price I could not justify keeping it. I returned and purchased the Dose Of Colors friendcation palette. The duochrome blue shimmer is out of this world as is the rest of this palette.

Love this for a natural look with a bit of shimmer - without the glitter!
So far so good
crj from TN
I am 50 and was concerned this would crease or it would look too sparkly. So far it hasn't creased which always happens with cream shadows (on me). The color is beautiful adds a glow to the lids.

I get SO many compliments on this shadow!! I like to use Kitten as a base and then sparkle it up with Cloud.
Vivid Saphire is a let down
Beauty Explorer from Ohio
I'm a fan of Stila's other shades and formulas; they are long wearing and blend out, or build up, beautifully. That said, Vivid Saphire has a dark grey base, which looks muddy and is a nightmare if you want a smooth fade into a different color. You can't wear just a little of this product, it has to be worn in a thick layer at full opacity. It also doesn't seem to hold the glitter as well as the other shades. Stila's other shades are much more beginner friendly and look better too.
I absolutely love this product!
Ellen from NJ
I use this product daily, and receive compliments on how nice it looks.
Not too shiny!
Tracy in Hopewell from Hopewell, IL
I was a little afraid to buy this as I am 50-ish and sometimes glittery, shimmering make up is a no go. I bought this as a highlighter and I like it. A little goes a long way. I only used in center of eyelid but it stayed on all day - even in 100 degree weather with no creasing. It is shiny but with just a touch it isnt overbearing. I am happy with the purchase.
Hard to apply evenly
B.T. from WI
I wanted this for something quick to apply but its takes more time then regular.
Momo333 from Cali
Cute product, who doesnt like shimmer? I didnt like the shade cloud, looked darker when I applied and didnt reflect much. I have the shade freedom though which is such a cute reflective light blue shade. I wouldnt buy this for full price, not worth it. But if you find this discounted then try it out!
Marshall from Kcmo
I've been buying these for 3 years and I will always adore them. One thing though, they do dry out over time and there's pretty much nothing you can do to stop it, but using a bit of duraline will reactivate the product!
Amanda from Southern CA
I use this product almost everyday. (So far I have only tried Kitten, but I love it so much). I have fair skin and light hair, and the warm /pinkish champagne color of Kitten makes my blue eyes look so awake and bright. I use this with mascara for daily use, and layer brown eyeshadows and black liner for going out.
Kate from MA
I have the shade cloud and love it. It's so pigmented and lasts forever on my eyes. I've had mine for a while and it hasn't dried out yet .
good but dries out quick
Tasha from Bristol TN
I've used the color "kitten" since it came on the market. i love it BUT I wish they would make the wand a little longer. I've never got to use the entire bottle because it dries up so quick and you can't reach what's in the bottom.
kind of inconsistent (twig)
Kasey from Portland Oregon
I've bought several of these shimmer and glow shadows and the lighter toned ones are absolutely gorgeous! However, the darker shade twig looked horrible on me. I couldn't blend it out for the life of me and instead of being a beautiful chestnut brown it looked more like a purple bruise on around my eye. I recommend kitten, grace, and cloud if you're thinking of purchasing these.
Didn't last long for me
gcarp from Reno, NV
The color is absolutely gorgeous, but it dried out and became tacky in texture. Bummer,
Good, but not great
Makeup lover from Georgia
Really enjoyed using this during the weekdays for 5 second eye makeup. Sadly, it dried out before I could finish the product- disappointing
Kitty from Philadelphia
I have two of these, I can't remember the names. I use a make up brush to apply because I hate the brush they use. But it's great, and very pigment. And stay out for hours.
A long time favorite color but I hate the applicator
Ruby Slipper from Sarasota, FL
I have used Stila eye shadow in the color twig for years. It used to come in a regular powder compact and then the design was changed. It doesn't last as long in this format and it is extremely hard to get the product out as you get to the end. The applicator is sloppy and hard to use, I end up using my finger to blend it in. Please Stila just put it back in the compact it was in originally. I love the color - one of the best bronze browns out there!
I would buy again
Julie from Louisville
I love these
Kells from Santa Barbara, CA
I always get these because of the glitter but also it stays on pretty well. I just love this brand.
Love this eye shadow
Aileen from Apopka FL
Love the way this eye shadow looks and always get compliments when I wear.
Great addition to augment an eye look
Zed from New York
So many color choices. Perfect was to dress up an eye look.
simp from Minnesota
cloud is such a lovely shade of purple and is super easy to blend! it doesn't crease that much either.
Pretty but not pigmented
Leanna from Orlando
I got kitten and the eyeshadow goes on very sheer with specs of glitter. It doesn't crease and stays on well but if you want a darker color I would put on a dark eyeshadow first and layer this on top.
Doesn't always stay
Rebecca13 from Philadelphia
I have hooded eyelids that get oily at the crease. I would love to wear this without primer but it doesn't stay in that crease area. Sadly, the rest of my eye looks great.
Lucy from Lansing, MI
Awesome staying power, perfect level of shimmer, love the color
