This past weekend I wasn’t feeling particularly well so I headed out for some shopping therapy under the guise that if I can’t feel good I might as well look good. I picked up a few products, but the Revlon ColorStay Smoky Shadow Sticks were by far my favorite pick.
I recognize that it is important to have a day look and a night look and that, despite being guilty of it from time to time myself, the workplace is not the venue to rock your night look. This is whyI am loving the Smoky Shadow Sticks.
I purchased and have been using every day this week the Torch and Flare sticks. The light end is not full of pigment so I have been using that from lid to brow bone as a base. The darker shade is full of pigment so I use that to draw a line right into the eye crease. Then I blend with a crease brush, followed by a blending brush. I line black on up my upper lashes, brown own my lower lashes, add mascara and VOILA I am ending up with a perfect workplace friendly day look.
It is true that they do not fade or crease (or melt – I even did an hour of Body Combat at the gym without it sweating off) so it’s really great that I can just get ready in the morning and be good for the day. The sticks are also easy to carry in your makeup bag or purse since they take up very little room. Your fingers also work great to blend, so if you wanted to darken your eyes from day to night you don’t really need to carry around brushes.
I think I have been a late adopter of the Revlon ColorStay line but seriously these products are great to use, top quality and the price point is very reasonable – especially when drug stores have sales. If you haven’t already tried them out I highly reccomend testing them out – you’ll be glad you did!
