MILANI HYPNOTIC LIGHTS EYE TOPPER
Claims–Weightless :: Dries quickly :: Minimal fallout :: Holographic effects of pearls and glitter
Price–$9.99 at Target :: $11 at milanicosmetics.com :: $10.99 at Walgreens
Shade Range–4 (my shade: Luster Light)
Pros–Cruelty free :: Affordable :: Glitter/something extra for an eye look without the mess :: Minimal fall out :: Wear alone or over shadow
Final Thoughts–I love the duochrome finish. It’s not as pigmented as the Stila one. It looks better worn over a shadow and is a little too sheer to be worn alone, although you can build it up. It is an eye topper and is meant to be worn over a shadow, but I wanted to mention how it looked on its own as well.
STILA MAGNIFICENT METALS GLITTER & GLOW LIQUID EYE SHADOW
Claims–Maximum sparkle, minimal fallout :: Dries down smoothly :: Lightweight
Price–$24 at Ulta, Sephora, Nordstrom, stilacosmetics.com
Shade Range–15 (my shade: Kitten Karma)
Pros–Cruelty free :: Shade range :: Wear alone or over eye shadow :: Pigmented :: Glitter without the mess
Final Thoughts–I love this and they are so loved and raved about for a reason. It gives a little something extra to any look. It’s easy to use and apply and pigmented enough to wear alone, though you could use it as a topper as well. It blends and applies well on top of powder shadows. A little goes a long way so one tube will last you a lifetime.

There are some differences in these two products, but the point of these products is to add glitter and glam without the mess of a loose pigment/glitter. You are going to get the same effect with both products so save your monies and grab the Milani.
