Wouldn’t it be nice to only use one makeup stick.? For example, I have been going back and forth to our beach house. Since it is the summer of Cornonavirus, I’m not even eating in restaurants outside. Yet. I feel better with a little something, something on! Even more, I don’t want to drag a lot of makeup back and forth to the beach, and home. Somebody at Stila Cosmetics must have been thinking the same thing as me. As a result, Stila has a one and done product that does everything, but apply it for you. The Stila Trifecta Metallica Stick is made to color your eyes, cheeks and lips. In addition, it gives you a bit of shimmer. So, this summer, if you want an easy, breezy monochromatic look, try this stick. Furthermore, you can choose from six gorgeous metallic shades.
You can find the Stila Trifecta Metallica Stick on the Stila Website. Even more, the Trifecta Stick (0.06 oz. / 1.70g)
Stila Trifecta Metallica Stick Packaging
To begin with, the stick twists up, and down. In fact, Stila refers to this type of packaging as having a propel/ repel base. Moreover, the cream stick has a rounded tip. Finally, the stick has a build-in sharpener to keep the tip working properly.

These one stick and done are shimmering sticks. As a result, the stick gives your lips, eyes and cheeks a prismatic shine. Also, the pigments are metallic. The formula feels silky and lightweight.

The Stila Trifecta Metallica Stick Shades
There are six shades in the Trifecta Metallica Stick Collection. I purchased three shades : Pink Sapphire, TOPAZ, and Amethyst. The shades I did not purchase are Kitten, Rose Gold and GOLD.
To start, Kitten is Stila’s iconic shade. In other words, the orgasm shade to Nars, is like the Kitten shade to Stila. Therefore, both Nars and Stila use their respective shades in a variety of different formulas, different shade-tones, and different finishes. Kitten, a champagne shade, has a glittery ,metallic finish. I would’ve, should’ve, could’ve purchased Kitten. However, I did purchase Kitten in a Kaleidoscope Eyeshadow. but, we’ll leave that for another day!
Next, Rose Gold, a metallic red-gold shade, has a glittery finish.
Finally, Topaz, a copper-brown shade, has a metallic finish. I love Topaz on my eyelids.
I think I’d use it on my lips, very sheer, with a gloss on top.It almost has a bronze feeling, so I would use it to bronze up my cheeks for a sun-kissed glow.
The first shade I purchased, Pink Sapphire, a fiery red shade, has a metallic finish. Out of the three shades I purchased, I was most able to use Pink Sapphire on my lips, cheeks, and eyelids.
Next. Gold, a 24 K gold shade, has a glittery finish. I would love the gold shade on my eyelids. Also, I would wear it sheered out as a highlighter. Then, I ‘d wear it over another shade, or a gloss over the gold.
Last, Amethyst, a deep plum shade, has a metallic finish. I love Amethyst on my eyes. Especially, I’d wear it on my lower lash lines as an eye liner. Also, I love it sheered out on the eyelids. I can’t imagine me in Amethyst Lipstick. Although, I’m sure some of you guys would look great in this shade of Amethyst. And, I really don’t see myself wearing this deep plum shade on my cheeks. Would you wear this shade on your cheeks?
My Final Thoughts On the Stila Trifecta Metallic Stick For Lips. Eyes, and Cheeks
First, I love the idea of a multi-tasking cream stick. It is so convenient. Also, one stick and done, to travel with is amazing. Next, I really like the shade range. Although, when it comes to wearing Amethyst on my cheeks, I draw the line. So I suggest getting more than one stick, so you can mix and match! Really, the sticks are thin, and won’t take up any room in your bag.
One last thing, two of mine came melted at the tip. However, the package came in the middle of a heat wave, so I don’t know how long the box was on my front step/ I’m thinking the heat, and the sun melted the tips. Otherwise, I really like them.
I would love to know what you think about a three jobs in one stick! Another thing to think about is, you don’t need to get a blush, or lipstick. So, you are saving lots of money!
