If you like using makeup to highlight your facial features then we’d guess that you’re a fan of eyeshadow. With endless colors and finishes, eyeshadows are incredibly versatile and ideal to define your eyes—but not always the easiest of makeup steps. We’re invested in uncomplicating your makeup life, and that’s why we’re introducing you to the best eyeshadow sticks! To begin with, they’re incredibly easy and intuitive to use—just pretend it to be a common writing pen. Equally important, they’re finger-blendable and lead to a total of zero fall-out of pigment on the skin. It’s time for you to grab yours!
Stick eyeshadows are here to stay with beautiful & long-lasting wear!
We’re not finished with the pros yet: most eyeshadow sticks are very long-lasting, requiring no touch-ups throughout the day! They’re also incredibly versatile, as you may wear them not only as eyeshadows but also as soft, more error-proof lash liners. You may pack the color for a fully pigmented look, or apply just a wash of color for a delicate effect. The same product allows for all kinds of looks—and you get to decide which one you feel like every day!

The formula cares for your makeup result as well as for the skin of the eyelids, providing lightweight hydration without feeling sticky.

After applying it on the eyes, you have only a few moments to smudge it with the built-in sponge blender, before the formula sets with smudge-proof resistance.
