9 Stila Liquid Eyeshadow Dupes for Long-Lasting, Pigmented Formulas





Last Updated: September 28, 2021

Although Stila makes some of the highest quality liquid eyeshadows out there, they’re also pretty pricey. If you don’t want to wait for a half-off sale or wait for them to pop up at your local TJ Maxx, a top-rated Stila liquid eyeshadow dupe is your next best bet.

We’ve searched high and low for the best dupes for Stila’s fantastic liquid eyeshadow and came up with 9 great recommendations below.


Best Stila Liquid Eyeshadow Dupes

Pixi Liquid Fairy Lights

These don’t feature as intense of glitter as the Stila liquid shadows, but they are a very similar product otherwise. 

They are long-lasting, have excellent pigmentation, available in 7 gorgeous shades, and are easy to blend. Not to mention, they’re almost half the price!


NYX Glitter Goals

Another top pick when it comes to dupes, the NYX Glitter Goals liquid shadow collection is spot-on. 

With 8 vivd shades to pick from, a long-lasting finish, and pigmentation you’ve only dreamed off, they are well worth checking out. And of course, they cost less than $10, so they’re a much better bang for your buck.


Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Pot

This top-rated product offers a decent range of pigmented shades and a long-lasting formula that doesn’t crease (just make sure to use eyeshadow primer). 

It’s even waterproof and advertises an “up to 24-hour” wear, which we wouldn’t argue with. The main difference is that it comes in pots, but it offers nearly the same amount of product as the Stila eyeshadows.


Milani Liquid Eyeshadow

Milani’s water-based liquid shadows are another great dupe that’s cruelty-free and made in the USA.

They even have a couple of colors that are very similar to Stila shades (Prismatic Light is a dupe for Into the Blue and Beaming Light is a dupe for Sea Siren).


essence Metal Shock Eyeshadow

If you’re looking for the best bang for your buck, essence Metal Shock liquid shadows should definitely be considered. They can be hard to find online, but they are also sold in many drugstores.

This product is very pigmented and long-lasting,. They don’t have a huge color range, but there are a few colors that are the perfect addition to any makeup collection.


Catrice Cosmetics Liquid Eyeshadow

Catrice has created a pigmented, waterproof liquid eyeshadow that lasts all day. Best of all, it’s much cheaper at just $8 a bottle!

They offer 10 different shades, including many neutral colors that are perfect for a ton of eyeshadow looks.


Colourpop Creme Shadow

Colourpop has been soaring to popularity with their affordable prices, fantastic quality, and adorable packaging. Their liquid lipsticks and eyeshadows are raved about, and their cream shadows are no exception! They only feature neutral colors at the moment and they come in pots, but they’re a great alternative to the Stila shadows.

They also have the ”jelly much” eyeshadow that we haven’t personally tried, but has raving reviews as well, so you might want to check that out too.  


Flower Beauty Warrior Glitter Shadow

This cute, affordable indie beauty brand has a few great top-rated products for even better prices.

This glitter shadow is a great dupe for the Stila products. They offer 6 shades and a long-wearing, cruelty-free formula.


Pop Beauty Flashadow

Our final Stila liquid eyeshadow dupe, this liquid shadow costs $8 and has a pretty similar formula, but there is a limited range of shades and colors. 

That said, if you like any of the colors they do have, you should definitely try them out. This product is also cruelty-free, vegan, and recyclable!
