The Details

Have you hit the “stocking stuffer” point of the season yet? A random gift-exchange here. A Christmas Luncheon there. And an “Oh no! I forgot so and so on the gift list” for good measure. You need stocking stuffers and a sweet little gift tag for those moments. Plus, stocking stuffers are my favorite gifts to receive. Lip balm. Eyeliner. Makeup sponges. What could be better?!

Ulta just launched their holiday gift guide, where they sort their gift picks by Top 25, trends, and price. They asked me to select my favorites, and I went with my top stocking stuffer gift of 2018: the Stila Enchanged Eyes Liquid Eyeshadow Set. After repurchasing this beauty product now three times, I can say I’m a full fan. This specific set is part of their holiday gift guide and is an unbelievable value!

Let’s chat why this made my top pick:

The Value

You’re getting 6 eye products {a $72 value} for $45- but right now they are on sale for $31.50. You’re basically able to purchase 6 gifts for roughly $5 each- which fits a holiday gift list on a budget! If you have a big friend group or multiple roommates, this allows you to do something special for them without going overboard with your debit card. Now if you don’t want to break up a set or you want to give someone multiple products, Ulta has the Stila Triple Threat Glitter & Glow Eyeshadow Set for $25 on sale for $17.50. With this gift set, you get 3 eye products!

The Texture

A cardinal rule of makeup is that powder is drying and can “age” your look and liquid is youthful. These creamy eyeshadows glide on your lid as smooth as a lotion and don’t crease. The “Shimmer & Glow” colors can be patted into your lid with your ring finger or a brush and I like to apply the “Glitter & Glow” colors on top for a pop using a brush. The shimmers are highly pigmented and a little goes a long way. You can just apply a tiny dot and smoothly blend it out to the rest of your lid. If your lids get dry this time of year, regular eyeshadow can accentuate the texture. A great creamy shadow prevents this from happening! If you’re worried about your eyes maturing, definitely try a liquid eyeshadow look.

The Versatility

I had originally passed these by at Ulta a few times thinking that I didn’t really have a need for glitter eyeshadow. A year ago after seeing some Youtube videos using them, I saw how versatile they were! I’ve actually gone through two of the full-size tubes and purchased this set after loving those so much. The shimmers are great for daily wear {Kitten is my favorite!} and then I’ll pat the glitters in my inner lid for added dimension in the evenings. These photos feature “Kitten” with “Smoky Storm” all over the lid to show you how it can even be worn in the day. I just blend the glitter out with a brush, but if you wanted to create an intense glitter look for NYE, you could press it into your lid with your ring finger!

Pick one of these sets up for your girlfriends or for your own NYE look and let me know what you think. Have you ever tried the Stila Liquid Eyeshadows?! Shop Ulta’s Holiday Gift Guide Here.
