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!

Even though this isn't at Sephora, I have to add these lovelies:

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

Thanks beautylovingirl.

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow 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

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

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. 

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

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

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

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!

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

I want to get whopping willow clinique chubby stick for eyes so bad it looks really pretty!

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

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!

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

@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.

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

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.

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

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.

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

WOW definitely going to look into some if these shades! So pretty & pigmented! 


Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

I've got more swatches to do- my Urban Decay order showed up!

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eyeshadow Pencil:




Note: These colors aren't on Sephora's site anymore, but they are available from the sale section of the Urban Decay website. Hence why I'm starting out with these two.

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

Anybody like Stila's Smudge Crayons? Or are they more like a liner?

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

I broke down and bought one- but I've been using it as an oversized liner for my undereye area.

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

Where did you get these eyeshadows? They are sooo prettyyyyy I want i wantttt lol

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

Sephora carries both the full Clinique and Laura Mercier lines; the Chanel can be found at counters as part of the summer 2013 collection.

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

Thank you!! I am going on the search for Chanel one because the colors look absolutely amazing!

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

OK, I've got 3 more to show you.
