Quick & easy

Wednesday, 7 October 2015

I was on the hunt for a dupe of Bobbi Brown’s eyeshadow sticks, and picked up 3 of these: 002 Bulletproof beige – which is actually more of a gold colour, 011 Bluffing – which is a medium brown, and 004 Guilty grey. All the shades I bought are the shimmery ones, and I got these colours so I could create a simple, natural look quickly and effortlessly. I’ve used them a few times, and I always use the Clarins Eye Perfecting Base under them, and I find they look very nice. I am a huge fan of cream eyeshadows, and I find these quick & easy to apply on days where I don’t have a lot of time to spend on my makeup. A little blending on the edges with the pinky finger and you’re good to go. They didn’t clump up in my crease which some cream eyeshadows do, which was great. The stick itself is wood I think, so perhaps the only way to sharpen them (since they don’t twist up) is to use the large option on a traditional pencil sharpener. I’m going to get more shades in these for sure!
