Product Review: Stila Silk Eye Shadow Wash

Bellissima! Stila Silk Eye Shadow Wash

Stila has decided to expand its popular Kitten powder eye shadow into an empire with the release of a cream shadow called Silk Eye Shadow Wash ($22). The super-long tube (1.1 oz) gets applied with a doe-foot applicator as a liquid form, and it dries to a powdery, crease-free finish.

I love that this shadow is so versatile. I like wearing it as a highlighter beneath my brow-bone and dotted on top of my cheekbones, nose and forehead, but it's also stunning as an all-over lid color. Tip: stick with either wearing it on your face or on your eyes — too much glow in any gal winds up looking more cheap than chic.

The shadow is formulated with proteins and since it's water-based, it glides on smooth and dries quickly. The color is rich and shimmery and it blends easily, but be warned that a little goes a long way. It spreads rapidly, so I recommend starting out with a gentle stroke and then adding more as needed.

The golden-pinky hue suits all skin tones. Funnily enough, I'm such a lover of champagne shadows that I've noticed the color is identical to Laura Mercier's Metallic Crème Eye Colour in Platinum (too bad they are also the same price, or this could have been a real bargain). I've grown to love this version of Kitten even more than my powder pan shadow (that's saying a lot!) and I wouldn't be surprised if it becomes the next cult classic. What are your thoughts on this new eye wash?

Would the Clinque Quick Eyes Cream Shadow in the Lucky Penny shade be comparable to this product from Stila?

I love this. How cute. It's spillproof and you can't break it like you could the pan form.

I use the kitten shade in it's pan form almost every day. I would love to try this out. This is my favorite shade of eyeshadow. I'm going to have to get this on my next Stila order. Can't wait!

I love eye shadow in this form. It lasts so much longer than powder eye shadow, at least on me. I have a really pretty white/silver shimmery color that I use all the time for an eye shadow and also a highlighter. I definitely want to check out this one. I love the color of Kitten.

I LOVE water-based shadows like this...I've always preferred them to powder. They look so pretty on the lids and NEVER crease. I used to have two by Sue Devitt that I adored, but I believe she discontinued them. I am going to order this right now! Love Stila and I love the "kitten" shade.

I was so torn between this and the Kitten Summer palette - the palette won out, because it is beautiful. But, I think I am going to have to go back and get one of these, too. Come on payday!!

I tried this out earlier this week. It's definitely a neat variation of the panned shadow. The texture was great and a little really does go a looong way.

I have Chanel's Ombre d' Eau fluid eyeshadow which sounds like a similar product, and I love it! It looks gorgeous with black liquid liner!
