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 love Eyeshadow sticks!

I have yet to try the Clinique chubby sticks but it looks like they have an excellent color selection! I own Laura Mercier Rosegold and love it. It's a gorgeous color and very easy to apply. Next on my list is the Chanel one in Moon River - it looks gorgeous and I've read that these Chanel sticks have a cooling, refreshing effect on the eyelids!

@marinaanne147- They totally do have a cooling effect.  I totally snuck off to the bathroom at work the other day when I was super stressed out just for the mini gel pack effect.

Oooh! I could use a destresser! Now I REALLY have to bite the bullet. Have you tried the Bobbi Brown Cream Eyeshadow Sticks? I've heard that those are great too.

No, I haven't.

 

I'll be totally honest, I'm already loyal to the Laura Mercier sticks and couldn't find anything unique in comparison when I swatched the Bobbi Brown sticks in store.

I'm with @lylysa UD Morphine is such a nice shade. 

Have you tried the MUFE shadow sticks? I only have one so far and am undecided on purchasing more or trying some of the LM ones. Orchid & Rosegold are so pretty even though it looks similar to MAC's rubenesque I rather use a pencil.

You got me curious now, I've never used/tried the MUFE shadow sticks....interesting.

The MUFE and NARS sticks have a similar color range.  Although MUFE is the best for crazy colored cream shadows, I was bored by the sticks!

Those look awesome! What are some of your faves for the clinique ones? Its looks like you got the whole collection? I've been thinking of maybe getting a couple of those and more of the lip ones.

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

I have the entire collection eyes and lips (lips swatches are in the lipstick swatch thread).

 

To date, I've used the most:

  • Whopping Willow
  • Big Blue
  • Bountiful Beige
  • Lavish Lilac

@starletta8- Your doing a great job of swatching for a beginner. I loooooove the Chanel summer colors. Thanks!

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

Thanks!  It's rough since I have lousy lighting in most of my condo- and trying to take my own photos is rough!

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

I'm not an eyeshadow person but i got this Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Shawdow Pencil set awhile back, no clue what it was called but here they are. Juju is the only one i don't see available on the Sephora site.

Ooh, those look nice!  I love Clash but know I'd buy it and just stare at it.

Thats what i do, Lol. I've never worn Clash or delinquent. I'm hoping to be daring one day and just wear it as a winged eyeliner.. Maybe..

lylysa

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

Clash is super wearable if you pair it with a neutral! Try lining just the inner portion of your lower lashline and having it fade into a rich chocolate liner, the brown will warm it up and tone down the blue some but it still allows you to wear a pop of color in a fun way!
