Revlon Colorstay Smoky Shadow Stick, 205 Atomic Nucléaire

**The product(s) mentioned in this post is purchased by me. I am not affiliated with any companies.**

This year every cosmetic brands are crazy about eye shadows in crayon sticks. While I am a fan of eyeshadow palettes, the sticks are not bad in terms of travel-friendly (yes yes, I always think about travelling!) and saving space. The pigments offered are usually good too.

Recently I bought the Smoky Shadow Stick at the airport because they are not available in local pharmacies. There are two colours in each of the Shadow Sticks, one light shade and a darker shade. As with the Smoky Sexy palette, the instruction comes with the packaging but I have already ripped and discarded it (couldn’t wait, could I? :p).

I find that applying the light shade directly on eyelids result in uneven application. Not sure if it’s because I always wear lid primer… Best result is achieved when I rub some eyeshadow on finger tip and pat it on eyelids. The colour is so easy to wear. I would wear it on casual days when I am at home, or on my previous holidays. Then line the eyes (no extreme cat flick!) and the eyes are pretty much done! 🙂

The dark shade has golden glitter, and it swatches BEAUTIFULLY on my arm. However, it looks baaah on my eyelids. I haven’t had any success yet with it, even use alone as eyeliner. I will experiment with layering over black eyeliner some time soon.

      Yeah the gold swatches really pretty on hand, but a little tricky on eyelids. A bit drying when apply directly from stick. Which is why I had to warm it up with my finger tip and pat it on. Pictures… will take some time. I am travelling again… 800+ km… …
