"A smooth and silky, rich and creamy eye shadow delivered in a stick-style format. Provides rich colour overlaid by soft finishes of shine. Glides on: works as a shadow - or a liner. Builds up coverage from sheer."
I have two MAC Shade sticks and thought I would share my thoughts on the ones that I have, and what I think of shade sticks in general. Most of you have them already though, so this might be a pointless post!
Anyway, onto the shade sticks, I have Beige-ing, a gorgeous pale shimmery beige/champagne colour & Sea-me, Gorgeous bright blue, I love blues so much!
They are twist up creamy consistency crayon type thingy-ma-jigs that you apply straight to the eyelid, They both apply really nicely and smoothly, although I do recommended that you roll the pen between your hands a little first to warm it up a bit otherwise it may tug on the skin a little. I personally prefer to use a finger to apply it because it warms the product easier and I can blend it in better.
They have really good staying power too and they last for about five hours without creasing on my eyelids (Longer with a primer). My main use for them is as a base to put other similar coloured eye shadows and pigments on top of, they just really help them stick and look brighter. The two I have are quite pigmented, but for a more opaque colour you can build them up.
That's all! These are available from MAC for £13.
