5 Alternatives To This Sold-Out Glitter Shadow

You always want what you can’t have — especially when it comes to beauty products. That’s why we’re getting the inside scoop from your favorite retailers on what’s selling out right now, how to sign up for waitlists, and where to go to find the next best thing. Because if everyone’s buying it, you know it has to be good.

It may only be four months into 2017, but this year is already poised to be the year of the unicorn — for better or worse. First there were highlighters, then nail polishes, heck, even Starbucks hitched a ride on the train and created a pink-and-blue Unicorn Frappuccino. As much as we love painting metallic streaks onto our cheeks and braids, glittery makeup on the eyes is hard to beat.

Clearly, the rest of the beauty world agrees, because Stila's new duo-chrome Magnificent Metals Liquid Eye Shadow are selling out at Sephora right now. We can't say we're all that surprised, the pink, blue, and purple shadows look stunning when slicked onto lids solo or packed on top of other shadows for a hit of metallic color. Oh, and they last for hours, too.

Thankfully, Stila's in-demand eye shadows aren't the only glitter-packed iterations on the market. Ahead, feast your eyes on five other ways to rock the unicorn trend.

Stila's duo-chrome, metallic liquid shadows may be sold out at time of publishing, but the brand has six other shades still ripe for the picking. This one, Violet Vixen, is a bold violet color with itty bitty flecks of blue glitter running through it.

If you're on the hunt for a ridiculously glitter-packed product, look no further than Urban Decay's Liquid Moondust eyeshadows. The brand's lineup features eight shades that can be layered for high-impact shine.

Milk Makeup's Eye Pigments veer more metallic than they do glittery, but they're hands down some of the best quality liquid-to-powder shadows we've tried. Not only is the formula insanely pigmented (seriously, these double as an opaque, cream liner) but they stay put — even in the rain.

These two-sided liquid shadows are perfect for noncommittal beauty nerds. One end features a shadow with a metallic finish, while the other contains loads of glitter. Wear 'em together, mix and match with different products, or wear 'em solo — the options are endless.
