So long powder shadows…

I’ve converted to stick form, cream eyeshadows and I am absolutely loving how quick and easy they are to use.

So, I thought I’d show you a few options – from affordable to eye-wateringly expensive, so there should be something here for everyone’s budget. Let’s begin with the most cheap and cheerful option I have, the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Yoghurt (£5.00) which is a lovely, creamy almost rose-gold toned shade. What I like is that it is neither too champagne or too pale. I love this for an all over base colour and for adding a pop to my tear duct area. It blends out very easily and sets down quickly so you have to work fast. I find that with many eyeshadow sticks. It’s not the most long lasting and it does crease after time but for £5.00 you can’t really go wrong.

The darkest shade I have is No7 Shade & Define in Coffee Bean (£8.00), a rich, warm toned brown with tiny flecks of gold shimmer which is really pretty. I absolutely love this for days when I just want a bit of colour on my lids for definition and this is the easiest brown, smokey eye ever. The product sets super quickly so blending is a must but it blends beautifully. I like to layer powder shadows over the top to really intensify the shades and make it extra long wearing. I’m eyeing up a couple of other shades in the range because I am so impressed with how long wearing this is.
Finally, the most beautiful shadow stick – By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Misty Rock (£28.00) – yes, it’s the most ridiculously priced out there but my word is it stunning. It’s unlike anything else in my collection! The shade is a purple with gold and brown tones that has a beautiful iridescence running through it that catches the light so wonderfully. The formula allows a bit of playing time but once it sets it doesn’t budge or crease.
So there you have my current shadow stick loves, have you picked any up recently?
Love, Kate xo
