formula overview

$14.00/0.049oz. – $285.71 per ounce

The Shadowsticks are “powerfully pigmented” and have a “one-swipe coverage” that lasts over 10 hours. Most shades had semi-opaque color coverage, with some shades being buildable or starting with near-opaque pigmentation in one go.

The texture was smooth, slightly creamy without being overly wet and was comfortable to work over the eyelid. They were a bit sticky at first, but once set they were more tacky and would come loose if you later tried to mix or spread them, so working quickly would be ideal.

For an allover wash of the more shimmery and neutral shades, I found them to be fairly easy to work with, but there was a slight learning curve. For the bolder and matte shades they were easier to use eyeliner or in a graphic form/base for other products.

Once applied, the Shadowsticks typically lasted me between 10-12 hours, with some of the more emollient/transparent shades sitting on the shorter end of the range.
