Today, I’d like to show you one of my current favorite eyeshadows. As I mentioned in my recent post, I’ve been super busy lately. Therefore, I’ve kept my makeup minimal and used mostly multi-purpose products.
Stick shadows come in very handy for those of you who are in a hurry or who don’t have enough time to correct makeup often. General characteristics of stick shadows are: soft and glide smoothly on eyelids, highly pigmented, usually last longer than powder shadows, and easy to apply (no need for brushes).
I got these 4 new shades of the Bling Bling stick shadows in the Pink Box from Etude House (http://www.etudehouse.com/).
#11 is a bright rosy red with both gold and silver shimmers
#12 is a gorgeous pink brown that looks like rose gold
#13 is a gold shade with big particles of gold pearls
#14 is a coppery brown shade with gold and silver shimmers
#11 and #13 have pretty big shimmer particles, so they actually do make your eyes really pop. #11 would be a perfect accent shade. #12 and 13 can be used for all-purposes: base, brighten inner corners and underline, and to give an accent in the middle of the eyelid. All these shades are wearable and good for everyday use. Also, these are highly pigmented.
Texture & Water resistance:
These are very soft and creamy; so they glide well on eyelids. I have pretty sensitive eyes, but it didn’t irritate my eye at all. It almost feels like these are cream shadows.
I let tap water flow on it for about 3 min, and it remained well through pretty high water flow.
I’ve been in love with using pink shades these days, so I use #11 and #12 a lot lately. Here’s a quick makeup look using Bling Bling eye sticks in #11 and #12, Play 101 pencils in #1 and $48, and Curl Fix mascara from Etude House.
I used #11 as a base shadow. Then applied #12 in the inner 1/3 and outer 1/3 of the eyelid. #48 (deep drown) was used to line the eye, and #1 (black) was used to tight line.
What your favorite stick shadow?
