Stila versus Urban Decay: Which Liquid Eyeshadow is Best?

I recently discovered the convenience and beauty of liquid eyeshadows. They’re easy to apply and stay on forever. Today, I’m going to compare two liquid eyeshadows from Urban Decay and Stila. I purchased both brands from Marshall’s at the discounted price of $7.99. They usually cost $21 each.

Let’s start with Urban Decay’s Liquid Moondust Eyeshadow.

This is the color Vega which is a bright purple-blue hue with a silver shift.

I also tested the color Spacetime which is a bronze color with gold and red flecks in it.

These liquid eyeshadows are pigmented and have a creamy texture. I generally put them on top of a matte eyeshadow. They stay on, and you will have to use makeup remover to take the eyeshadow off.

Now let’s look at the Stila Shimmer & Glow and Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows. As the name indicates some of the eyeshadows feature glitter and are great over darker eyeshadows to add spark to the eye. The Shimmer & Glow are great for swiping on the eye and going. No fuss and no mess.

Here are the colors that I’ve been able to find at Marshall’s: Into the Blue, Vivid Smoky Quartz, Sunset Cove, Jezebel, and Vivid Garnet.

Stila’s formula is slightly thicker than Urban Decay’s liquid eyeshadow. It’s just pigmented as Urban Decay and lasts just as long.

Here’s a comparison of Stila’s Into the Bue on top. Urban Decay’s Vega is on the bottom. They both look good and give the same coverage.

The main difference between the products is the applicator. Stila has a better applicator tip in my opinion. It’s the one on top. You have to paint on the liquid eyeshadow with Urban Decay’s applicator.

The final verdict is I love using both Stila and Urban Decay’s liquid eyeshadows. They’re pretty and add pizazz to the eye area…easily. If you see either of them (on sale of course), purchase them. You won’t regret it.

Stay blessed,
