Last month i was in Barcelona and one of the places that i visited was Sephora. Come on it had to be done!
I am a huge fan of shadow sticks and a few shades caught my eye whilst browsing in Sephora. I picked up three neutral shades, which are wearable on a daily basis but double up as an eyeshadow base as well.
These jumbo pencils are creamy and easy to blend, plus being smudge proof, sweat proof...pretty much everything proof!
Having quite oily lids, i need to make sure i use products that don't crease and stay put all day. I still use the Urban Decay Primer Potion and then i use these jumbo pencils on top. I have been wearing No. 22 (Dark Taupe Shimmer) on it's own and it literally takes less than a minute to apply and blend.

All these shades are perfect for everyday use, especially for work or uni, as the colours aren't too out there.
With the holiday season coming up, i think these would be perfect if you're travelling to a hot destination, as you know for certain they're not going to budge!

I think these cost me about €14 each, which is kinda expensive but comparing them to Urban Decay, By Terry etc, they are relatively cheaper.
These jumbo liners are a perfect addition to my ever so growing makeup collection and i wish i had picked up a few more shades!
Do you have any shadow sticks? Favourites?
