IT Cosmetics shadow sticks are the best. I liked Mally's shadow sticks but I noticed recently that they are dry and irritate my eyes.

I’ve tried many and About Face perform the best on my eyes.

@Midmod   25% off Bobbi brown sitewide, so those shadow sticks are GREAT at a good price. I did also purchase the LM Rose Gold sticks on Q on Saturday.

Kim Gravel has a TSV with 4 shadow sticks & 3 eyeliners today (1/22).

I have some of her other style of shadow sticks & they are really nice.

These colors look great but I haven't used the LWYA style.

I use Mally's lid primer....fantastic!

 

The only shadow sticks I don't like are KG first lineup.  They were total goo by noon.

I don't know anything about this new line of hers.

 

Mallys colorsticks would last for days if I didn't take them off ...IT and BE are my second favorites.

Re: What shadow sticks to buy?

I want to like shadow sticks but it sems every one that I have tried, they just smear and disappear into my crease within a half hour.  I am not exaggerating.  It must be because I have oily eyelids?  Have even tried with eye primer - maybe the primer was too creamy too?  Don't think I've ever tried Kim Gravels shadow sticks though.   Have tried Mally, IT, and I seem to think a couple others but can't remember what they were.  Maybe the shadow sticks I tried were too creamy?

 

I'm tempted to try Kim Gravel's TSV and tell myself that I can send them back if they don't work out.  It just looks so easy for days I want an easy makeup look.

NYX has great colors, but on me, they crease & fade like crazy.

Maybe my lids are too oily.

 

this was my experience too.

Bobbi Brown sticks work for me. Budge-proof .

I think Tarte is the best. Mally's shadow sticks smear and do not last after she sold her company years ago. The formula changed.
