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!

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!

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.

 

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

Love kitten!

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

YAY! You got Morphine! I'm eyeing mushroom right now & it keeps going back and forth from my shopping list to shopping cart. 

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

LOL, I knew I'd end up with Mushroom.

 

What shocked me was the Stila victory over NARS and MUFE- I just don't like their pencils (or at least the testers). I also found the MUFE color selection meh at best.

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

I have the MUFE in 20E (pearly taupe) & really like it's staying power. I'm a huge fan of Stila Kitten, and your swatch is making me want to add it to my cart... forget the list! 

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

I have seen many posts promoting Stila Kitten, so I couldn't resist...

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

I picked up the UD in Mushroom today & LOVE it! It's such a nice shade. 

I stopped into Lord & Taylor before hitting up Sephora and swatched the Chanel sticks in Jade Shore & Pink Lagoon. I almost bought the Jade Shore on the spot, the color is gorgeous! Good thing I didn't. In Sephora I swatched a bunch of pencils (mainly UD, but a few MUFE too). Then when I washed my hands I had sparkles everywhere & the Chanel pencils completely disappeared, but the UD & MUFE didn't budge. When I went back to the Chanel counter & told the SA, she was shocked & said she wears them daily & they don't budge. She closed her eye & I saw big crease line. When I pointed it out to her, she didn't know what to say. I had a feeling they wouldn't last long; the only time I can get the illusion d'ombre to stay put is with a lot of primer, and shadow to set them. Even then they still move a bit. So sad too, the colors are so pretty! 

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

I use the NARS primer and 2-3 Iayers on the Chanel- and get 16-18 hours of wear, no creasing. 

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

really?!!?! Now you're tempting me.... 

So I'm trying to use more of my Vice palette & hid my nakeds... Mushroom is a nice base for purples. I layered it with rapture & think I found my new "go-to" look.
