Review: The Face Shop Stick Eyeshadow

I shall review these Stick Eyeshadow from The Face Shop today. They are available in 4 colours: White, Pink, Purple and Blue. Image000copy I bought the purple and white to try, and found them very creamy and easy to use. But though they apply on easily, they also fade quite fast. That's the bad part. I didn't notice it at first, but the eyeshadow has glitter and the glitter pieces are very large. The huge glitter pieces are very noticeable once the eyeshadow colours fade. They are not very attractive at all when that happens. So, instead of using them all over the eyes as eyeshadow, I decided to use these only as highlighters instead. They work quite well in that way. Here's a photo of the colours straight from the stick. Image001copy And blended. Image003copy The colours are more intense in real life, the camera phone tends to wash out the colours. I don't like taking out my dslr for these quick photos. Maybe I should look into buying a small point-and-shoot soon. © Copyright. All rights reserved.
