Every time a new Glossier product drops—whether it's an acne-fighting exfoliator or a solid perfume—all eyes are on the trendy cosmetic and skincare brand. But to make sure that its latest product launch got extra attention, Glossier timed the release with the Oscars. 

At the Academy Awards Sunday night, Greta Gerwig, Tiffany Haddish, Maya Rudolph, Allison Janney, Salma Hayek, Tracee Ellis Ross, and other stars all wore the brand-new eyeshadow, called Lidstar ($18; glossier.com). Designed to provide a sheer wash of color and a soft shimmer, the cream eyeshadow gave the stars a glistening look that's perfect for awards shows (and that we'll soon be stealing for date nights and dinners out). Silky and blendable, the formula lets you combine multiple colors so you can build them for as subtle or vibrant an effect as you'd like. 

Priced at $18, the new shadow may be a bit of an investment, but when you consider that this one-step product could replace any entire palette's worth of eyeshadows (and save you time in the morning), it's worth the splurge. If you plan to buy several colors (or one for you and one for your best friend), opt for the Lidstar Duo ($30; glossier.com), which can save you a few bucks. Once you check out the colors, you may just be tempted to buy more than one. Choose from Herb (smoky green), Fawn (cool taupe), Cub (rose gold), Slip (sheer pink), Moon (a sheer cream base), and Lily (sheer lilac). No matter which colors you pick, each one has a shimmery formula created to brighten up your eyes. 

Perhaps the most exciting part about Lidstar is that is has serious staying power: It's been tested to last for up to 12 hours. While most cream eyeshadows seem to disappear in under an hour, this miraculous formula will take you from a full day of work, all the way to dinner and drinks afterward. An eyeshadow that will shave minutes off of your morning routine and save you from having to reapply throughout the day? It's safe to say the Lidstar is about to become the star product in your makeup collection.
