Stila Smudge Crayon in Dazzle Review & Swatches

Many of you know that i love stick shadows. I love using them as a base of colour for layering with eyeshadows, as the colours stand out so much more.

I was excited to try the new Stila Smudge Crayon* because it can be used as a primer, eyeshadow and a liner. You have 3 products rolled into one!

Years back i had been using Stila eyeshadows and loved the pigmentation and the quality of the product and was sad to find out that they were no longer selling Stila products in the UK........but now they're back! Yippeeee!

The Smudge Crayon certainly lives up to its name! This stayed put for nearly 8 hours on my lids without creasing! I used it as liner and as an eyeshadow primer and then layered an Inglot eyeshadow over the top. You can see in the picture, how much the colour just "pops".

I think the quality of this product is fantastic and yes there are very similar products on the market. I have ones from MAC and Kiko, however i think some of the MAC ones may have been discontinued. I do love the Kiko Shadow Stick, as it is great value for money. Depending on your budget, i would recommend trying out the Stila Smudge Crayon, as they have various different shades to choose from.

Top-Bottom: Stila (Dazzle), MAC Shadestick (Sharkskin), Kiko (20), MAC Greasepaint Stick (Slick Black)
