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:

It's all about having patience:

  • Primer
  • layer of color
  • giving the color a minute or two to settle down
  • then add additional layers.

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

Since you guys are the pros when it comes to shadow sticks, are there some that are a little less shimmery? I think these are all super pretty, but I don't think I look very good with very shimmery eye products. Any recommendations would be very much appreciated! Smiley Happy

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

Of all of them, the Clinique are the least shimmery- but I have yet to encounter a matte stick. They're all metallic or shimmery. Just remember- these are all buildable and switched heavily to show true color payoff. Just avoid the Chanel ones though...

Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

I realized there were 3 that I hadn't swatched. Oops.


Re: Comparison: Eyeshadow Sticks

D'oh... there's still one more that I didn't swatch. That's for another day, I guess.
