New this summer from Revlon are Colorstay Smoky Shadow Sticks. These dual-sided chubby sticks come in five shades, each featuring two complimentary colors that can be used together to create a smoky eye effect.
One side is rounded and the other pointed. Both side twist up for more product. They’re definitely easy to use in that it’s like drawing with crayons on your eyes! Neither end is fine enough to use as a liner really, unless you want it super smudged out.
The five shades these come in are:
Flare, Atomic, Smolder (no primer)
These sticks feel really creamy and glide onto the skin without tugging or pulling. I felt they had pretty good pigmentation, although the lighter shades on each of them was less pigmented and slightly patchier than the darker shade. All of them are shimmery and definitely work well together. I especially love the Smolder combo.
Flare is a lavender on one end and deep plum on the other.
Atomic is a icy blue on one end and medium teal on the other.
Smolder is a warm gold on one end and a deep forest green on the other.
They claim these are creaseless and long-wearing for up to 12 hours, but I think that might only be true over a primer for me.
I have yet to try them out on my eye, but stay tuned for that! Update: I have done the wear test and it was what I expected. On my right eye with primer the shadows stayed on 8 hours with no creasing. On my left eye with no primer I started creasing slightly within 3-3 1/2 hours and REALLY badly after 8 hours.
Have you tried any of these yet? What do you think about these shades?
