Stunning quality

I found this on sale at Clicks for only R60 and snapped it up super fast - I'm obsessed with eyeshadow sticks and cream eyeshadow at the moment!

Although I have green eyes, I bought the one for blue eyes instead - I always gravitate towards golden-hued eyeshadows, and nearly my entire eyemakeup collection is golds, bronzes, browns and neutrals. While these are the shades that are supposedly there to make blue eyes pop, I don't like wearing colourful eyeshadows like purples and plums, and find that the golden colours work just as well on making my green eyes stand out.

The stick I got came with a gorgeous golden colour and a rich dark brown, both slightly metallic. They are lovely and creamy, and apply like a dream, and I was surprised by how well they stayed put - even when a lot of my other makeup had started to fade, these stuck it out as if I'd just applied them!

Part of me is wishing I'd bought 2 of these now, so I'll be on the lookout at Clicks and Dischem for any more of these!!

Long lasting makeup

I bought this for R60 in this weekends clicks beauty sale! It's comparable with stila's smudge crayons or cliniques chubby sticks for eyes! Think of it as a two for 1 ! U r getting two colours instead of one at a fraction of the price! I chose the one for hazel eyes number 030 as sale pickings were slim!! I put this on at 6;30 am ! It's now 17:56 as i take my make up off and it's still on! It's a creamy pen formulation which is great for me as i dont have to use my fingers and while i favour powder shadows for depth of colour and intensity this was surprising for a creme shadow! It's a soft mauve brown colour with a pinky gold! The colour is subtle but build able and unfortunately not nearly as colour intense as I would have liked! Will work amazingly for a nude smokey eye!a good spend!

Almay Intense i-color Shadow Stick

The pen retails for R99 however when I went to the till it was only R60, such a bargain! I chose the 030 pen for Hazel eyes. The colours are very pretty, the brown is a beautiful shade with a little bit of shimmer. The pink is very subtle but noticeable. These colours are perfect for a natural look when you want your cheeks, lips or mascara to be the main focus.

The eyeshadows are creamy in texture and apply smoothly. To build up the colour one needs to "colour in" your eye lids and it does take quite a while to build up any noticeable colour. But because this is in a pen form it is easy to apply and line the bottom of your lids. The eyeshadow lasts well throughout the day and doesn't crease.

I really like this eyeshadow pen and use it along with my other eyeshadows. It is fun to play around with the looks and this works so well as a primer on lids as well.
