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

Great swatches! I love the colors! 

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

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!

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.

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

@lylysa, whenever u mention the enablers r us thing, I always perk up Smiley Happy

do u have any others you recommend?

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow 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. Smiley Sad

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

sounds cool!

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

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.

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

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.

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

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!

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.

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

Hehe those are really the only ones  I have too and was going to post them but now I don't. Wonderful photo btw ^_^

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

Lol Thanks!! You could still post them, people do love to see them on different skin tones.

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

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

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!

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

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

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

Haha, you're welcome! Enablers R' Us...strikes again!

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

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..

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

@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

@arielaaaaaaaa- All of those colors look good on your skin tone.

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.
