Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

Anyone who has read a few of my posts knows that I've become a recent convert to eyeshadow sticks- and have amassed a decent-sized collection in those few months.

 

Here are some comparison swatches- feel free to add your own eyeshadow stick swatches!

I've never done anything like that, I'm not one to experiment with eyes shadows/ liners. I feel such an urge to go play with my makeup now! Thanks Lylysa

Wow, that is a wonderful collection and great swatches.  I'm interested in these and the little color swatches on-line are not very helpful sometimes.

 

Tell me, how do you apply these? I don't really want to go and try one out at the store, and I've only ever used powder shadows.  Do you color a bit with the stick and spread with your fingers? With a brush? Color the whole eyelid?  Any info on actually using one would be great.

 

Thanks for sharing.

I usually go for a whole eyelid look since I can't see very well without my glasses- but you can do any of those methods.

 

I should also mention that my swatches are applied with a heavy hand- the colors can be sheered out very easily.

Thanks, I'm hoping to play around later.  I picked up a couple of Rimmel Waterproof ones to try and I wasn't sure how to start. I'll see how it goes. If you can do it without seeing very well hopefully I won't manage to make too much of a mess of myself!

Sugar Frost looks gorgeous......I feel like this is going to be an Enablers R' Us thread to support the purchase of cream shadow sticks!

I'm a fan of the UD shadow sticks, Morphine is one of my favorites, it's got a blue/purple pearl shift to it and looks amazing on any eye color. It's such a good brightening shade too!

 

Benefit used to have a shade called Slippin' N Dippin' that was a warm golden peach (similar to Freelove by UD in their regular shadow line, but not as warm toned) that I used as my lid shade for lazy days....sad they discontinued it. :smileysad:

sounds cool!

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

There's a couple other shades of the Laura Mercier sticks that I'm eyeing- but I'm in a lo/no buy period right now.

 

I should admit that I have an UD order coming of the 2 shadow sticks on clearance.
