The Glitter Petal Eye Mousse Pot was released in March as part of the Stila Japan x Barbie collection. Compared to Stila's Shadow Pot, the Barbie Pot is more mousse-like in texture while the Shadow Pot is creamier and smoother in composition. Glitter Petal is a deep pink with a soft sparkle that is much more subtle than the shiny Shadow Pots. Although it is a cutesy color, it is not necessarily an inappropriate shade for work as it does look quite natural. Pink shadows have a tendency to appear either invisible or red around my eyes, most likely do to my strong pink tones, but because the mousse sits on top of the skin rather than completely blend in like a regular powdered eyeshadow, when applied, the shadow looks almost exactly like how it appears in the container. If you want a bolder shade, you can also combine Stila's Shadow Pot in Lily with Glitter Petal for a cooler pink with greater sparkle.
If you know pink shadows work well for you, the Barbie Eye Mousse Pot in Glitter Petal is a very nice eye makeup product. It would look especially wonderful and really pop out on darker skin tones. Unfortunately, now that Stila will leave Japan by the end of the month, it will be difficult to locate this product. It should also be noted that, unlike the Shadow Pots, the Barbie Mousse Pot contains a rose fragrance. It has not irritated my eyes but I do find it a little annoying.
Along with my Stila purchases, as a parting gift, I received another Stila memo, a Stila folder and little charm. I hope Stila will consider returning to Japan when things begin to look up again. Their Barbie Face Shimmer Powder is still my favourite highlighter ever and one of my favourite makeup items that I use all the time.
